“When it come to the time when I am old and faded, do not fly me in disrepair, rather retire me from my duties only to replace me with a new flag so that I may continue to symbolize our country.”
We have partnered with local Veteran’s groups to collect retired flags and cremate them in the most dignified manner, with a veteran. This is done with honor as part of our commitment to the men and women who fought under the flag of our country. YOU MAY DROP OFF RETIRED FLAGS AT ANY KAYS-PONGER & USELTON OR LEMON BAY FUNERAL HOME LOCATIONS OR GULF PINES MEMORIAL PARK.
We are starting a monthly newletter in January! If you would like to be included in our mailings please send your e-mail address to email@example.com.

The dog of slain U.S. Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson refused to leave his side during his funeral on Friday.
This heartbreaking photo taken by Tumilson’s cousin, Lisa Pembleton, shows the SEAL’s dog Hawkeye lying by the casket.
Pembleton wrote on Facebook that Hawkeye was Tumilson’s loyal pet who wouldn’t leave his master’s side during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa.
“I felt compelled to take one photo to share with family members that couldn’t make it or couldn’t see what I could from the aisle,” Pembleton wrote.
Tumilson lived in San Diego for eight years before becoming a member of SEAL Team 6.
A memorial fund has been set up in his honor and donations can be sent to Frogman 238 Memorial Fund at:
