Brian, Greg, and Mick,
Our condolences on the loss of your dad. He was certainly one of a kind. I'll always be greatful for the time he spent with Troop 43 BSA and all the evenings up at the DDHS pool in the winter getting us through swimming and lifesaving merit badges. Wouldn't be an Eagle Scout without him. Miss your grandparents, too. I can just remember your grandma teaching one of my early years of Sunday School and my mom telling me she, too, had your grandma for a Sunday School teacher.
Thom and Cindi Holden, Superior, Wisconsin
