If you remember, this is the wonderful family that opened their home and their hearts to Taylor and I and made it possible for us to be at Camp Lejeune for Taylor's wonderful week. Congratulations Shannon, you have worked harder then anyone I have ever met and you deserve this!
This Saturday, 5-19-07, Taylor has been invited to be in the Michigan Parade in Sturgis Michigan. This is a very big parade and she is pretty excited about it. Her dad thinks that he and Tanner will possibly walk behind the car that she will be in and carry a Patriot Guard Banner. We were asked if any of the Patriot Guard Riders would like to be in the parade with her, but they would have to walk instead of be on their bikes and so far, that didn't get a favorable reception, so dad and Tanner will try to represent on foot!
Hopefully, next Monday, 5-21-07, she will be air with WNWN promoting www.anysoldier.com and www.hopeforthewarrior.org She will be able to spread the word of doing the right thing, just because it is the right thing to do. I will keep you all posted and let you know the date and time for sure on that one.
