Saying Goodbye to a Fallen Tomball TX Marine!

Yesterday when I attended my monthly meeting of the Tomball Business and Professional Women I found out that a young Tomball marine had been killed by an improvised explosive device while on tour in Afghanistan.  They mentioned that a motorcade would be bringing his body to Klein Funeral home that afternoon.  As I was driving home I saw everyone lined up so parked my car and with my flip mino in one hand and a flag I carry in my trunk in the other hand I waited to pay my respects.

A marine helicopter followed the hearse as it traveled from David Hook's airport down Main street to Klein Funeral Home.  The video I shot is a bit long at 7 minutes but I could not bring myself to cut any of it.  There was a 100 car/motorcycle motorcade with people lined on both sides of the street waving flags saying their goodbye to our fallen Tomball hero.

As many of you know our son just got out of the Army this last June.  He did two tours of Iraq and this is something that is always in the back of your mind.  I feel so sorry for this family.  Cpl. Jeffrey Johnson was just 21 years old and left a wife, father, mother, stepmother and three siblings.  Please keep this family in your prayers as well as all our brave soldiers who serve to protect us.  Freedom is not free and Jeffrey made the ultimate sacrifice.

The first thing I did when I got back in my car was to call our son; because I could.
