    Larry, Lance and family – I was sorry to learn of Carolyn’s passing. I know for many years she had generously supported her family in your Scouting activities as well as Larry’s career in the Army CID and Raytown PD. I am grateful for her sharing you with those who benefitted from your participation and leadership in Scouts and in your service to country and community. I pray for peace to each of you, as you know with certainty that she leaves a legacy of love to all of you.
