On behalf of the organizing committee of Honor Flight, Conyers we would like to express our sympathy on your loss.

Mr. Risse was our oldest vet to take the trip to Washington and will always be remembered. His guardian, Pastor John Beckman has moved to California. I will send this information to him.

Thank you for recognizing Honor Flight. Donations received will help send another Vet to Washington

and receive the Honor they earned.

Dave and Anita Smith
