    My daughter and her youngest son have lost two more friends.
    Their friends were with a group from their Boy Scout troup on a camp out in Canada when a storm moved through. The boy was in the Cub Scout pack my daughter was the leader of and my grandson was in. The woman was a Boy Scout troup leader when my daughter transitioned to the older group when her boys moved up, they had become friends.
    The boy, Christian, left behind parents and a sister. The troup leader left behind a husband and 4 children under the age of 15.

    Please keep my kids and the families of those killed in your thoughts and prayers.

    Very sorry for this loss. Seems very tragic circumstances too.

    Do you know which part of Canada this happened in?

    They were camping near Basswood Lake near the Canadian border, somewhere along the border of Minnesota and Manitoba.

    Oh - that is quite a ways from me. I wondered as I hadn't heard anything on the news about it here - Course all that is on the News here right now is about a Shooting in a Mall in Munich Germany. (Hope this is NOT another ISIS atrocity but the TV News here is saying they think it is another terrorist attack)

    Very sorry though about your situation. It sounds real tragic and definitely impacting your family.
