Dear Troop 483,
It is with a heavy heart that I send this email to inform you of the passing of our Troop Committee Chair, Gene Cachenaut. He was a very active part of our troop leadership and a great friend who helped to make the boys’ scouting experience the best that it could be. As we all try to process this loss and to continue on with the work that Gene has done in the troop, I ask that we stop and remember Shannon and Tanner. Continue to pray for them and for God’s peace to be upon them in the coming weeks.
“It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.”Deuteronomy 31:8
We are planning to set up a support system to help with food and anything else that the family may need for the next few weeks, so watch for that email to come soon. The biggest help that we can all be for the family at the moment is to keep them in our prayers.
At this Monday’s 7Pm meeting (10/29), we will open our time with a “Scouts Own” to remember Gene and all that he as done for our troop. This will be a time where scouts and parents can share a thought or prayer as we all try to come together and cope with this loss. We will have Pastor Hillary and a few church leaders at our meeting, and they are willing to meet with any scout or adult to help us through this time.
