To pay tribute to a friend: Remembering David Irvin

2009-03-03 - Vester, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
STICK HARMON, Glens Fork, KY, drove his horse, Little Girl, over by horse-van to Bob's Country Kitchen on Kentucky 206, to ride in the procession honoring the memory of his friend, David Irvin. Harmon was one of several dozen riders who followed the mule-drawn wagon, owned by Irvin's friend Albert Pike, and driven by Mike Irvin, from Vester to the Bear Wallow Cemetery. The procession stretched the full length of the route and into the church yard at one time.
