October 7, 2012

The funeral procession for Sgt. 1st Class Riley Stephens of Tolar, led by a Patriot Guard escort from Tolar Baptist Church to the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery in Dallas, passed through Granbury on Higway 377 just before 3:30 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 7), as many residents lined up on the side of the roadway with flags to honor the Army Special Forces member who died on Sept. 28 in Afghanistan during a gun battle. “It got me right there,” said 79-year-old Army veteran Guy Shelton of Granbury, touching his chest after watching the procession go by.
