Scouts-L Mail Archive for December of 1999: Eagle's father called home.
Eagle's father called home.
Mon, 20 Dec 1999 13:06:38 EST
Dear Scouters, Last week I droped a note to you all announcing the Eagle
Scout ceremony of a fellow Scouter, Tony Lovegrove. Tony's ceremony is
scheduled for Jan 8,2000. Sadly to say, Tony's father died last Thursday
after a 2 month battle with cancer. Tony's dad Phil, was a great committee
chairman and friend to those of us in Troop 135. After finding out that he
was being called home, he wanted to make sure that all of those he loved
would be joining him in heaven. His funeral was held Saturday afternoon and
was well attended by his family and friends and a score of fellow Scouters.
At his funeral, Phil asked that we all be happy that he was in Heaven for
Christmas. Please keep Tony and his family in your prayers and they prepare
for a life without Phil and also prepare for Tony's big day.
Scoutmaster Linda Clossen
