The Bike Week gathering at WMC, Lockhart, is usually a fun time, however,
this year, it was a somber day of remembering…
remembering that is, of five Brothers who had passed on to the Freebird Chapter.
Among them was Grub Freeland, founding father of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club. Grub was a Navy Vet who served on the Aircraft Carrier, U.S.S. Shangri-La, as well as duty in Vietnam. He, truly, will never be forgotten.
It was a huge crowd who came to remember the Brothers who had passed, and, during the service, a toast was drunk to honor them all. The fire was lit, and during the burning, as in most burnings, certain figures emerged from the flames…I wonder if anyone else saw them, as I did…?
Thanks to all who made this day one that we’ll always remember. GRUB, and all the Freebird Bros…Rest in Peace…
