It's pretty wet morning this morning with the rain falling, but that hasn't stopped many folks from showing their support. The highway near and around Midlothion,Texas is packed with people standing along the grassy areas and bridges as the funeral procession goes by.
Midlothian was where Chris was said to have graduated from high school and is where he came back to live after his military career was over.
The highway is lit up with flashing lights from police cars and motorcycles that are assisting with the procession as it heads toward Austin.
Lots of tears are falling from even those who never knew or met Chris.
All I can say is, "WOW", about the huge turnout. American flags are being displayed all over. Two large firetrucks are parked on a bridge with a very large American flag hung between the two ladders that are hoisted high in the sky.
It's a very touching thing to see!
