I just want to extend my deepest condolences to Heather and the Family.
And my prayers for you all as you go through this time.
I'll always remember what a fine man he is, and the time he gave to us at the Troop; and the prayers he and Heather said for me in my time of sorrow.
Fraternally and sincerely,
