As the Stateline community continues to grieve the tragic loss of Christopher and Jack Ruckman, several plans are in motion to honor the lives of these two amazing and talented young men.

JB and I received a heartwarming message from Christopher and Jack's mother Heidi last week, and she told us she is in the process of creating a music scholarship in the boys' names. A memorial fund has also been set up by some of Heidi's former classmates to raise money for a memorial bench to place in the Sycamore cemetery where the boys are laid to rest.

If you've been looking for a way to express condolences and honor the memory of these two young men that were taken way too soon, this would be a great way to do it.
