Dear David and Gary: I am so sorry to learn about your father's death in March. He was truly an inspiration and a gift to all of us in Boy Scout Troop 210 and Explorer Post 949X. I will never forget the positive influence he had on my life, and I am sure the lives of us all. The most important life lesson he taught us was that we could succeed at whatever we wanted to so: Minnesota canoe trip, Southern California Canoeing Association Champions, so many Eagle Scouts in our Troop/Post, and the list goes on and on. He has certainly enriched my life in those relatively few formative years. Please accept my deepest sympathy at his death.
