FAREWELL TO A SON, A BROTHER AND A MARINE

Family and friends escort Marine Cpl. Miguel Angel Suarez's casket Thursday from St. Joseph Catholic Church. Three hundred people were expected to attend the funeral service. His cousins drove 42 hours from Mexico to Tampa to mourn his death. His ex-wife, Yvette Martinez, flew in from Air Force service in Afghanistan. Members of the Patriot Guard Riders and the Marines Corps 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion were there. "He was an outstanding Marine. He was proud to be a Marine. He was a great man," said Marine Staff Sgt. Joshua Luneau, who knew him. Suarez died after being shot in an attempted robbery in Tampa early Saturday morning.
