Uncle Tom Being Honored

Today, July 26, 2011, Tom McGann was buried at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, CA. Dick Taylor, former Bison, OK resident for about 23 years represented Uncle Tom's nephews Bob and Richard at the services today. The car caravan lined up at the cemetery office about 1030 and later drove across the main road down to the formal service site. Two sailors stood at the curb to greet the guests, one carrying the American Flag. Minister James Rury presided over the services and both Tom and Scott had a few words about their Dad. I was honored to be there and told everyone that I was proud to have had the opportunity to talk with Uncle Tom's nephews in Tulsa and Dallas and say a few words in their behalf at the services. I took pictures of the cemetery, the services and the family members present. After Taps the sailors unveiled the Flag over the ashes and re-wrapped it before presenting it to Uncle Tom's son Scott. Craig, Tom and Scott along with Craig's wife and her father were present today. Many neighbors came to the service and I counted 33 present.
