Recommended Posts

Anywhere along Highway 278 tomorrow - They are estimating on leaving Peachtree Dekalb Airport around 11am. That puts them in Hiram around 12pm.

 

My group of benefit riders will be in the Kmart P-Lot starting at 11am.

 

Thanks for posting! I was wondering about this also.....

 

Is there a certain time/place we should get together at? I know you mentioned 12pm but should we start before that? And where? And I'm guessing you are talking about tomorrow right?

With much regret I will not be able to attend either day. I am leaving in 10 min. for LaGrange and the day of the funeral I have a huge meeting about regulation changes taking place at work.

 

I will be there in heart though.

 

RIP our Paulding County Hero!! :wub:

I was in the line of folks in front of the KMart with a bunch of little boy scouts. There were a lot of folks lined in front of that shopping center. What a sad experience but your heart can't help but swell with pride seeing the many people lined up to show their love and respect. I hope there were other areas that had folks standing out. I also hope someone will post on here where there will be a line on Tuesday morning en route to Canton. I didn't know this young man or his family but I know he gave his life for all Americans. I'm sure he must be at peace now and I just pray that his family can find some peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this brave young man.

I think it was so wonderful for ya'll to bring those scouts out for this homecoming. It teaches those little kids that freedom is not without cost.

My children and I were parked at Carl Black down by the road. I have never felt such sadness and pride in all my life! All I could do was stand there with my hand over my heart flags in hand and cry.

 

My prayers are with this family.

I dont have any photos, but I wanted to say, I was there, and it was very touching to see how the whole community was there supporting him. He is truly a hero and I have newfound respect for soldiers who serve our country. God Bless you and the entire family. You have a lot of strength. I wanted to ask also..what time Monday will the visitation be?? I would love to come and pay my respects.
