Dave, I can't thank you enough for sending me a copy of that photo. I have it on my "wall of family" and it is my most favorite photo of him. When he had his finger to his lips as he does in that photo, I knew his mind was very active. Reminds me of the statue of "The Thinker".

Thank you again,

I was Scoutmaster of our local troop for almost 18 years. Mentored 24 Eagles, including my 4 sons. Camping was the really fun part. Winter, summer, spring, fall, it was all good. Doing Space Ex MB kept me into the rockets at the same time....

Sunday, August 11, 2019 will mark six years, since the premature passing of Carl McLawhorn . . .

It doesn't seem like it has been that long and I still feel the loss.

That 6 years sure has went by quickly...
Agree that his loss is still missed by the many in this hobby.
He contributed so much over a relatively short time.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
