Our oldest son was in Washington D C back in 2004 on a band trip at the time of Mr. Reagan's funeral. I know everyone has a time and purpose in life. I think through hard work my son will accomplish a lot in his life. Him seeing Ronald Wilson Reagan's funeral procession down the streets of D C will go far in his life. I was very proud my son had the chance of being so close to a great man at Mr. Reagan's last trip in Washington DC.
Long live the conservative movement.
