Dear Tom and Lori, I was so saddened to learn about T.J.'s passing. Though I didn't know him well, I remember him coming up to me in the dining hall at MUUSA and trying to get me to join the youth program - not realizing that I had long since aged out of it. I so wish I had someone like him to welcome me into the program when I was that age. It was easy to see that his heart was big and the beautiful energy and love that emanated from him was and continues to be endless. Sending my love and support to you and your family. Love, --Heather

Our sincere condolences to the Hlaban family. We did not know Nukahh intimately, but always looked upon him, at camp, as a gentle, caring soul. One morning when we were surmising the problem with our car, Nukahh and his friend came over to offer their assistance. The problem was small, and fortunately, we were able to get it started. We’ll always remember his kindness in this delicate situation. LGSA and MUUSA hugs and memories. Our hearts will be with you all this afternoon. Anita and Paul
