This from the Northern Nevada PGR that attended also;
‘This past Saturday four motors and a rider from Northern Nevada PGR set off to Susanville to support our Northern California PGR in honoring Army Veteran Ron Harrison. The NN PGR joined two NC PGR members in standing a flag line at the Catholic Church prior to the service, then retired to the local Burger King for an hour for the service to take it’s course. Following the service this group of PGR, lead by Susanville, CA PGR Ride Captain Blake “Burnout”, provided the escort of the veteran and a very long procession of family and friends to the cemetery. At the cemetery we met 4 other NC PGR to stand flag line for the full military services. It was a blustery windy afternoon, but a beautiful service I am sure the family appreciated. God’s Speed Ron Harrison, your service has been fulfilled.
I want to specially thank the two riders from Dayton, you will all remember Laura King from the Battle Mountain escort for her husband. Laura and her good friend Carlos met us on the Mt Rose on-ramp in south Reno, where once we arrived in Susanville we met up with Bob Arroyo, our Reno Ride Captain. Thank you all.
