  • Rob and Tracy and family, we are sorry for you loss. I enjoyed working with your mom and dad when they were at Camp Wyandot with the Boy Scouts. Love and prayers for comfort are with you ALL.

  • Robert, Sandra,Rod, and families:

    So many fond Scouting memories of Ron from years gone bye ….what a gem. Unfortunately I lost touch with Ron in the busyness of life. Other commitments prevented me from attending the services today.

    The words of Scout Vespers certainly ring true:

    Softly falls the light of day
    As our campfire fades away
    Silently each Scout should ask
    Have I done my daily tasks.
    Have I kept my my honor bright
    Can I guiltless sleep tonight
    Have I done and have I dared
    Everything to be prepared.

    Rest well my friend , rest well.
