Lynn, Laura, Gary and Diane I was saddened to hear of the passing of your parents. Surely they are both in heaven together. I remember fondly the many boy scout memories your father made possible for me and will always cherish the neckerchief slide he made for me when I attained my eagle scout award.My thoughts and prayers will be with you.
