Thank you everyone- it was a beautiful service today, a beautiful tribute to Al, it was so fitting to see Snort at the cemetary, and the picnic in the pavillion was really nice. On Eagle's Wings was a wonderful choice for who ever picked the song for during the ceremony, and I loved the imagery of Al, stopping at Heavens Gate and unfurling his flag to welcome our fallen into heaven--- that was a perfect vision to have of Al in Heaven... Thank you all for being there, those that could be there in person, and those who were there in spirit..

Rest in peace Al, I was honored to be there for you today.

Today was truly a day for reflection as we paid our respects to a a true Patriot. It was obvious by the so many different groups that turned out and by the out pour of emotions demonstrated. It was truly my Honor to stand for you today Al, you will be missed by so many. Rest in Peace brother and I will see you on the other side of heavens gates.

Would have given anything to be there today to say goodbye to Al had to settle for a prayer for him.
Great pics shooter thank you!

Rest in Peace AL. What a honor to be part this great family of brothers and sisters. I know Al was smiling down on us all day even as I was making my last turns on the way home, after the send off mission at the airport, and I felt the rain drops start to fall. I thought they must be Al's tears from knowing that really made a difference in this world.

At one point- 64 Motorcycles were counted in the parking lot of Wrobleski FH in Forty Fort- They came from far and wide- The tribute & honor that was paid to this Man today was awesome!  The emotion, support & feeling of all those who spoke was a true testament to the unselfish, stoic, dedicated peaceful man who was laid to rest!
Al "Bluesman" Philo was a one in a million kind of Guy! You may never meet the likes of such a caring dedicated soul again in your lifetime.... Immediately following the interment, his extended family met under the pavilion at Kirby park in Wilkes Barre. Fond memories and stories of his impact on everyone's lives were shared- The Friends of Forgotten NE Wing will dedicate their ride next Sunday 8/8 to Al & his memory. A Memorial fund will be established to erect a beautiful appropiate stone at his grave site. A Plaque will also be dedicated & placed in the Gino Merli Veterans Center where Al Never missed the chance to come & aid in our Veterans welfare & well being.
You were a one of a kind Al! We will feel your presence & impact in all that we do........... Gods Speed Dear Friend... Ride with the Angels..........................FOTF NE Wing

Thank you Shooter for the pictures, they are beautiful. It was so hard being here in GA yesterday but my heart was with all of you.

It was so nice one of the girls at the vet brought Snort. It looks like he loved all the attention.
And that is where he was supposed to be yesterday-

Thank you for being such a good friend to me and all of us here Al.
