Mary, Nathan and family,
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed working with Bryan and you, Mary, the years Nathan was a student. Bryan was a supportive parent and board member. His dedication and leadership will be missed in the West Pike area. Nathan I am sorry for your loss. With Chris Borrowman's death, I have been thinking of my West Pike years and students. You were already in my thoughts this last week as I remembered field trips and classes with you and the Borrowmans. Know you will be in my thoughts this week.
