CRESWELL, Ore. -- More than 100 motorcycles roared through the town of Creswell Sunday. The bikers were riding to locations all across Oregon to honor those who lost their lives while serving their country.
Among those honored on today's ride was Army Master Sergeant Christopher Lane of Creswell. His mother was at the town's Veterans of Foreign Wars building where the group of riders presented her with a memorial plaque and paid there respects for Chris's passing.
Christopher Lane lost his battle with cancer while serving overseas in the Army. Lane was 45 years old. Kathy Lane, Christopher's mother, said that she was honored that the motorcycle ride stopped to make the presentation.
"It just overwhelms me ... there is such good in the world and boy I appreciate it. My son is here, he's right here." Lane said, touching her heart.
Lane added that she hopes the memorial ride serves as a reminder to everyone who sees it to remember those who serve their country.
The memorial ride started in Eagle point and made stops in Medford, Albany and other Oregon cities before wrapping up in Roseburg.
