Laurel Leader contributor and former columnist Mike McLaughlin caught this scene Wednesday as trucks from Laurel and Beltsville fire departments hoisted a flag over Van Dusen Road at Route 198, while the funeral procession for life-long Laurel resident Carl Owens, 85, passed below.

Owens, who died Nov. 26, had been a member of the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department since he was 16.
