A few pics from the funeral procession

On Tuesday, I set out for a bike ride, to enjoy what nice weather we have left.  My ride was cut short when I realized I was on the direct path of the funeral procession for SPC Jim Butz.  (see previous blog).  I rode home quickly, grabbed an American Flag and a camera, and went back to wait.  I sat there for 1.5 hours waiting, but there was no where else I wanted to be.  I stopped taking pictures when the hearse came to view, out of respect for the soldier, his family and friends.  But here are a few pictures.  Again the wave of emotion came.  Awe, patriotism, respect, sadness, loss, heartbreak....pride.
