I worked at the local grocery store (Vans Market) that the Boone's shopped at. I also umpired some of the boys little league games at Parkway Little League. The news footage of young Todd and his younger brother at Chris' funeral is forever etched in my mind.

I am happy to learn that his two boys grew up to be outstanding adults. I never doubted they would.

I'm proud to have known the Boone family.
