So "Life Goes On"

Today I share an e-mail sent this week to the State Captain of the New Hampshire Patriot Guard Riders (NHPGR).

From: Duncan C McDougall

Subject: My first encounter


My son Jamie, a contemporary of Capt. Doug DiCenzo here in Plymouth, shared this video today on Facebook.  The funeral for Doug was celebrated on the football field at Plymouth Regional High School, back in June of 2006, and was the first at which I saw an honor guard from the NHPGR.  

I joined the NHPGR that afternoon.  Now, coming up on my tenth anniversary as a member, I share your pride in the mission of the Patriot Guard Riders.  I hope for a few more years to serve with you, though I'll be having an operation on my right eye in a few weeks, and ask your prayers for my vision to improve.

Be well!  

For readers of this blog, I will add that Capt. Doug DiCenzo was the step-son of my great friend, Mark Burzynski, the Manufacturing Manager at Rochester Shoe Tree Company, Inc., of Ashland, New Hampshire, where we worked together from 1988 to 1992.
