I hope there is a similar show of support for Michael's family and turnout for his funeral as the town showed for Lt Scott Milley. Both were heros for our country and should be shown the same respect and gratitude. Thank you for you service Michael and prayers to his family.

Ann ... I've been told the Ronner family is asking for privacy this weekend, so I'm not sure if the show of support will be as visible. I believe the support is there now, but come this weekend I'm don't think the family wants a large crowd.

The funeral is to honor Michael's life and we would welcome all that would either like to honor him or a fallen Marine. Sincerely, His Family.

I stand corrected ... my apologies.

I certainly hope the residents of Sudbury come out to honor Michael, just as we did as a town for Scott-
