Behold, I will bring to them health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security. - Jeremiah 33:6
May God hold them and all your scouts in the hollow of his hand.

I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Not sure I'll be around here much for a while. We've got a family in need of love and support.
Hug your kids. Hug your grand kids. Remember what's important.

Krampus, my deepest condolences. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. You all are in my prayers.

Holding you, your whole troop, your scouts and their families in the light.

Oh, I'm so sorry. Sending my warm thoughts and prayers to all the families in your troop!
Just two days ago, i listened to this podcast
one of the questions was regarding a death of a troop parent, and how Clarke was out of his element. I hope you have someone you can talk with and get support from like he did. Perhaps a counselor to come to your next troop meeting as in Clarke's story.

It is always hard when a good Scout leaves us before his time.
Krampus, The fact that you are spreading this need is evidence of your quality. The Good Scout does what needs to be done even before the need is recognized by the person needing it. Sometimes the best thing is just "be there" for them. Listening, offering to take on a usual need (lawn mowing? Trash pick up? Sit younger kids? A ready made meal? ) that takes up some slack for the grieving family.
I will mention this at Meeting First Day, tomorrow, to hold the family "In the Light". God be with you and them.

Very sorry to hear of the outcome. Im pretty new around here and we dont know each other, but I have very recent experience with losing a Scout in my Troop - mine was a first year Scout. If you'd like to talk to someone who is not so close to your unit, just holler and I'll send you my number.
