What a beautiful and touching thing. I'm crying just imagining it.


I am in tears. What an amazing send-off.


What a blessing.


And I'm bawling.

You did him right.



Two of my HS friends are PGR Captains. The service they give is so sincere and heartfelt.


Wonderful. You do good work, girlfriend.

Carmen, you are amazing. What a gift. For Pop. For Joann. For your husband and his family. I hope they know how amazing you are.

Love you.


Carmen,I sent you an email. I know your inbox must be crazy full, but I wanted you to see it.


What a beautiful testimony to honor your Father in Law's life. You are inspiring. Lovely. Blessings to you and your family on the passing of your father in law.


Perfect. Job well done. And heartfelt thanks to the men and women of PGR.

What a very touching memorial. Very nicely done.


This made me weep. Carmen, you are a beautiful person. My sympathy to your family on the loss of your father in law.


I did not know about PGR. Thanks for this post and I am sorry for your loss.


This is beautiful.

Wonderful story. Thank you for sharing. PGR is a wonderful organization of riders.


That's lovely. Take care.


Sweetie, I'm in tears. That was beautiful, and I'm so glad you got to do the final ride. Much love to you and your family.


Sincere hopes that the tears have now subsided and the remembrance of lives well lived can begin.
