Lance Corporal Scott Harper's memory was honored this afternoon as the motorcade carrying his body slowly made its way through downtown Douglasville. Hundreds lined the streets but barely a sound was heard during the moments the motorcade passed by, as those who came to pay tribute hung their heads and placed their hand over their hearts.
Harper was accompanied by the Patriot Guard, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, the City of Douglasville Police Department, the American Legion Riders, friends and organizations associated with the family.
Harper’s family will receive friends at Whitley-Garner at Rosehaven Funeral Home today from 5 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday from 1 to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be held on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Ephesus Baptist Church, 8445 Ephesus Church Road in Villa Rica. Interment will follow at the Ephesus Baptist Church Cemetery will full military honors.
