Nick & Patricia Sanidas Buried at Sea 

The ashes of Nick and Patricia Sanidas were mingled together from a family member's private vessel in the Perquimans River April 22nd by their daughter Monica Sanidas Bunch, and grandson Johnny Huffman, accompanied by other family members and friends.

"Rolling Thunder," a private veterans Honor Guard that received Mr. Sanidas' remains last year as he returned to Perquimans County during COVID, to which he from natural causes, returned and provided an Honor Guard for the family as they proceeded to the vessel to carry their ashes into the River.

The Honor Guard then repositioned, and presented arms with the eight American Flags, and a United States Navy Flag, under which Mr. Sanidas served our Country honorably.

Taps were sounded as the family released their loved ones remains into their beloved River.

The family provided a meal for the Honor Guard, friends and family attending after the commital.

Mr. & Mrs. Sanidas' remains and family members pass through the Honor Guard on the way to the vessel to release their ashes.  L-R Great granddaughter Alyssia Huffman, John Huffman's fiancé Pat, son-in-law, Lonnie Bunch, Sr., Monica Sanidas Bunch, Grandson, Johnny Huffman.

"In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth..."

Remember those who gave their lives to secure and guarantee America's freedoms we enjoy.

God Bless and Protect our men and women of our Armed Forces.

We need to be in constant prayer for our country, those affected by the Carona Virus, our leaders for wisdom to make good decisions, and unity for America.

Extreme violence has broken out throughout our country.  Many are using  a pretext to pillage and destroy, as well as injure and murder many police officers and innocent protesters.

This is turning away from the things that made America the great nation it is.  Please be in prayer for Divine guidance, justice, peace, and healing for America.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD."

Pray America will return to following The Lord Jesus.
