Thanks Brent & Jrod, I tried to use all my vid skills & make the best one I could.
His son (the one on the back of the bike & receiving the flag is  autistic. That ride'n clip is from 4 or 5 years ago from a ride to Utah. They hit a deer on that ride which ruined their trip but they were not hurt bad.
Here's a vid that encompasses the Duchess & me on our 3 day ride to Phx for the funeral. I had planed to ride the bike but bad weather came in Friday so I rented a car. It includes hiking near lake pleasant on the way down & hiking at Sedona on Sunday on the way back. It also has the wake at his best friends house ( some peeps even flew in from Cananda) where we celebrated his life & had a few drinks & told some stories.

What a wonderful tribute!  Very well done.
