That is one of my nightmares--Scouts in an accident on the way to or from an event.

 

Praying for them and the Troop.

I just popped my head back in to say thank you for the expressions of support. We held a vigil for the young man last night and his remembrance service is tomorrow night.

 

I have be honored with the task of delivering his eulogy. While I am finding the words relatively easy to come by, getting them on paper has been difficult.

 

Thank you again.

Let your heart talk rather than the paper.  :)  That's why the words are easy to come by, getting them on paper is not as important as getting them into the hearts of those around you.... You'll do just fine, everyone here is sending along their prayers, how could it go wrong?

@@Krampus thanks for the update. Tonight will be significant. No doubt you'll find what the Good Lord has for you to say, and will say it well.

 

The more important thing is coaching the boys going forward as they find ways to remember their buddy and attend to his family. That's a matter of being attentive as time passes and nudging and encouraging in a quiet manner as time goes forward.

Wow I just read this thread. I am so very sorry too hear your news. I can only imagine how hard this must be.

 

You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

Krampus, thanks for the update, and I'm sure your eulogy will be superb.     Our family is praying for you all.

So so sorry. All of our worst fears realized. My Troop lost a beloved ex-Scout Master in his prime earlier this year and it deeply affected some boys and many adults. This is so much worse.

 

Boys grieve in many ways and they are not so good in processing their emotions.

My prayers are with you, your scouts and the family of the young man who passed away. I hope that you can all eventually find peace.

Eternal rest grant unto him, oh Lord. And may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

 

Krampus,

 

I am so sorry for your loss.
