You can't begin to know how much Scouts-L has meant to me over the last
six months. I heard about your group from Mary Beth Murphy (MBScouter) and
it has been a wonderful experience meeting all you people. The love and the
prayers that you sent to me while I was going through chemo really made the
difference. Since I was housebound for three out of the four weeks of the
month, Scouts-L was my lifeline to Scouting. The good advice, where to get
information, problem solving, and even the flames help me feel like I was
still a part of the Scouting movement.
I have often said that when you move around as much as we have, thank
God for Scouting. I knew that when we moved into a new area that we could
always rely on Scouting and Scouters to make us feel welcome. Scouts-L has
done the same during my illness. Now that I'm in remission I'm ready to get
back to work. There are blue cards and advancement sheets to be filled out,
training sessions to be planned, etc. and I can't wait.
Thank you, Jon, for all that you do for Scouting. Through this medium,
you know that you were "important in the life of a boy."
