GLENDALE -- American flags lined the cemetery's entryway as a hearse carrying the body of fallen Lance Marine Cpl. Pedro Antonio Barbozaflores slowly made its way into Forest Lawn Memorial Park Saturday afternoon. Barbozaflores was killed July 11 in Afghanistan when a roadside bomb erupted near his armored vehicle. A funeral procession of more than 100 cars and dozens of motorcycles, driven by members of the Patriot Guard riders, with police motorcycle escorts streamed into the cemetery shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, following a 1:30 p.m. funeral mass at Saint Ann's Catholic Church in Los Angeles.
