A Community Honors Spc Brian Anderson

This evening there will be a candlelight rememberance at Heritage Park in Broadway beginning at dusk.  Bring a candle and join in remembering Bucky's life.
Sunday, June 20 Bucky will be coming home.  The escort will get off I-81 at the New Market exit, travel Rt 211 to Timberville, then up the Bluff to the Grandle Funeral Home.  It is estimated the escort should be getting to New Market around 2pm.  Bring your flag and welcome him home.  If you are receiving this and live north of Rockingham County, you may be able to be along the route somewhere and show your respect.  I may be in contact with the escort on Sunday morning to get an idea of where they are during the drive back.
Family visitation is Mon, June 21, 6-9pm at BHS.  Funeral services are Tues, June 22, 2pm at BHS.  Burial will be at Linville Creek Church across the street from the High School.
Bucky's mother is a member of the Ladies Aux of Chimney Rock VFW 9660.  Last tuesday she attended her first meeting and on Saturday she received the news of her son being killed in Afghanistan.  This has been an incredibly difficult week for everyone that knew Bucky and his family.  Continue to pray for strength for the family as they get ready to lay Bucky in this resting place. 
The outpouring of compassion this community has shown is incredible!  Please continue to honor Bucky and pray for our soldiers that continue to fight for our country.  And pray for all the families across this Nation that are going thru this same experience that the Anderson family is going thru now.  We may not know who they are but know that there are many of them out there.

My heart goes out to the Anderson Family, my son goes to Afghanistan in August and my gut wrenching fear is very active just thinking about it. May God give courage to the Anderson's and allow them peace of mind and in their heart. Their son is a hero. God Bless. Ana Maria Mendez Ritchie, Criders, Virginia
