Default RV-9A themed funeral

My 9A was sold a few years ago when I switched to LSA. It passed hands a couple of times with James Swilley being the last owner. I contacted the latest owner to chat and found out he passed away. His family raved about how he loved the plane and made it a big part of his last year. They also gave me permission to post pictures of his aviation themed funeral. A sign shop wrapped the casket to match my color scheme and they had a fly over with a missing man. First picture of the flying plane was when it was mine from the Petit Jean event 2013. As they said "Life is Good" especially with a RV. Also notice that the picture shows him as "Gone Flying". A great tribute!
