Gray Ghosts’ founding member honored in tremendous procession

We had the honor of capturing footage of the funeral procession of John Franklin Lewis, one of the founding members of the Gray Ghosts Motorcycle Club.  Lewis was laid to rest in Many, Louisiana on Saturday, Jan. 15.

It was difficult not to be awed and taken aback by the show of respect and honor Mr. Lewis earned from his friends and fellow motorcycle club riders, as well as riders from all over the state and beyond.  In all, close to 500 motorcycles participated in the procession in some way or another.

The procession began on South Capitol Street at Warren Meadows Funeral Home and continued south to Hwy. 171, traveling to San Antonio Avenue where it continued on through downtown Many and on to St. John’s Catholic Church.

We used multiple cameras at several vantage points in our attempt to do justice to this awesome procession.  The 8 minute video we put together for Mr. Franklin’s family, extended family, friends and motorcycle is within this post

  4. John was highly respected, and deeply loved by all who knew him. He was a very honorable man, who set an example for many younger men as joined Gray Ghosts MC. His passing is a great loss to the motorcycle community. John Franks was a living example of the biker code of Love, Loyalty and Respect.

  18. Picture this – 3 am in the morning, I had a line of fiends stretched around the corner of my block. It was in the freezing middle of January but they had camped out all night, jumping-ready to buy like there was a sale on Jordans. If you were 16 years old, in my shoes, you’d do anything to survive, right? I got good news though; I MADE IT OUT OF THE HOOD, with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection. I’m not special or lucky in any way. If I, as a convicted felon that used to scream “Free Harlem” around my block until my throat was sore, could find a way to generate a stable, consistent, reliable income online, ANYONE can!

  21. Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
