The Motorcycle Officer
sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat
by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light...
Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
7/9/07 @ 1800hrs: The funeral service for Officer Dayle Weston Hardy will be Thursday, July 12, 2007 at Prestonwood Baptist Church at 11 A.M. with a procession to Boyd, TX for the burial.
