Update on Nick Gummersall

Wonder if Fred Phelps and his idiotic family band will have the audacity to show up here.

Local patriots, veterans and citizens plan to give Sgt. Nick Gummersall a hero’s welcome when the plane carrying his body lands at the Pocatello Regional Airport this week….. His father, Clay Gummersall, said his son’s remains will arrive in the Gate City Tuesday or Wednesday, and he said members of the POW/MIA Awareness Rally will escort Nick’s body from the airport.

Funeral arrangements will be released when the family has an official arrival time, and Clay Gummersall said services will be conducted on the Century High School football field. Clay Gummersall wants his son to be remembered for his positive outlook on life.

They did manage to show up for Carrie French’s funeral/memorial. [No link to publicize their presence anywhere.] They were kept across the street from the service at College of Idaho (Albertsons CofI), which is private property, by the police department; the fire department had their engines parked strategically as well. I found this regarding Carrie’s father, which I think any parent can easily understand. “Rick French is so haunted by his daughter’s death that he has been unable to return to his job in a print shop, from which he took leave in June. He said he’ll never get over her death, but it has gotten easier.” It’s been two years and hopefully, hopefully, it’s gotten a tad easier for Carrie’s dad. (The link for some reason has a date of October 2006; Carrie French was killed June 5, 2005 in Kirkuk.)
