A heartfelt thank you to you for organizing the Patriot Rider Guard to pay tribute to my dad for his funeral mass and burial on May 31. My dad, Peter J. Mrowka, spoke of his years in the Air Force with great reverence and pride. I can’t tell you how surprised and touched we were to pull up to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church that morning to see a wonderful guard of veterans braving the heat and humidity to honor my father. My mother, husband and I were pleasantly surprised; our family and friends are still talking about how impressive and meaningful that was. We had no idea that this was going to happen and it took us a few minutes to realize the guard was for my dad. The tribute at the church and cemetery were just beautiful and truly helped to provide some comfort to us during this difficult time. My dad’s passing was untimely and unexpected and we’re still trying to make sense of it. He would have loved having his comrades stand for him that day and I know he’s smiling down on everyone involved.
From the bottom or our hearts, we thank you for your remembering my father, supporting my family and serving our country.
Thanks very much.
With warm regards,
