Paul, Roger, and Sharon,

My sympathies to you and your families at Faye's going Home. I remember often those times of Cub Scouts in your home on Kentucky learning scouting stuff and having a good time! The one firm memory I have is lacing four tapered sides to a square bottom and creating a waste basket. There was one long piece of plastic lace we used. I remember Faye commenting how Paul had to drill all those holes in the fiberboard. That waste basket lasted a long time. Oh, yes, and we did have snacks and treats. Paul, I am sorry I didn't last longer in Boy Scouts. At that time, camping just wasn't my bag. I wish now I would have stayed with it. I did learn how to make kindling for a camp fire, though. Sorry I cannot be at the visitation or funeral as we live in Peoria, but my thoughts and prayers are of you and Faye.
