Unfortunately, I'm scheduled to be out of town Thursday. If I can change that, then I will be there to honor Mr. Sorenson.

Navy honors and flag presentation will take place at the cemetery. Rich, you will present to the family after that. Do you have a funeral kit and condolences?


AT THIS TIME - Springs PD have turned down a procession escort request. The funeral home is trying to coordinate with County Sheriff's Office at this time. If there is no LEO escort, then there will be no Patriot Guard escort of the procession.
