Note: Ken Hooper, one of Sharon's classmates in school, is a member of the Wyoming Patriot Guard Riders. He was instrumental in making sure that the Patriot Guard Riders stood at the church and at the cemetery on the day of Finnie's memorial service. He also made sure that he got a wreath for Finnie's grave from the Wreaths Across America program in Casper. That organization puts a wreath at Christmas on the graves of veterans. Thank you, Ken, from all of the Rey family.
