Provide a M/C Escort for Colby Whetstone's Funeral

Our fellow members Larkin and Donna suddenly lost their beloved 21 year old son Colby this past week. They have been active members of this group for a long time now, and many of us consider them family. Larkin is also a long time Navy Veteran. 

We will be providing a motorcycle escort on the way to Colby's final resting place in Louisiana. We will leave Murfreesboro around 12pm and escort them to the state line in Memphis. Please come out and show love and support for Larkin, Donna, and their family. (Email me for information on the services if you are interested in attending prior to the ride/escort) Those of us that will be attending the service prior to the ride will leave the church after the service and meet at the Funeral Home for staging. Make sure you get a bite to eat and gas up.

This is an act of the utmost respect for our Brother Larkin and Sister Donna. Please act accordingly. If you cant make it all the way to Memphis, feel free to come and peel off whenever you need to. I want to see alot of bikes on this one! Text or call with questions. Shane:[masked]

Below is the donation site for the family. Any amount of money is appreciated. Dont be shy to even give a couple bucks if thats all you can. No one should ever have to bury their child. The least we can do is help them with the cost and show them respect.

    Unfortunately something has come up that prevents me from riding tomorrow. I will however be on the Loretta Lynn Ranch Ride in a few weeks. Looking forward to meeting you all at Loveless Cafe. Ride safe.

    I may drop off after 100 miles or so.

    What is the route you will be taking? I assume it is 840 to I-40 west. I live off of 840 exit 7 in Fairview and could hook up with you as you pass by. I would just need an approximate time so I can be there before you pass. I don't mind waiting.

    I am new to this group and am very happy to see that you people are very caring about everybody included. I have yet to ride with you and did not have the pleasure to meet the young man that passed away. However I am honored to be able to ride with you for the first time in such an event. I look forward in meeting everybody involved.

    Shane,
    What you are doing here is truly moving and a great way to show support for two parents that need family and friends to rally around them. Unfortunately I will be out of the country next week but I will certainly keep the group in my thoughts. I sincerely hope that there will be a strong turn out and that many more will go on line and make a contribution to the fundraiser.

    Safe Travels.
