ORFORDVILLE - The noise already had been subdued as if people were talking quietly in church rather than outdoors along Beloit Street.After the local fire trucks and then the motorcycles of the Patriot Guard Riders had rumbled through, it was like a switch flipped-and the voices stopped. The stone-faced riders preceded a white hearse carrying the remains of 21-year-old Orfordville native Cpl. Benjamin Neal.After the hearse, car after car carried silent passengers past silent viewers.
