The Hayward community was saddened by the tragic death of 23 year old Scott Hams, a student at UW Stout. Scott and two other students perished in a house fire this past weekend.
When Scott was a little boy, Cathy and I took care of him in our home during the summer months. Three years ago, his mother, Bonnie, passed away after a long struggle with cancer.
Please pray for Scott's dad, Al and his brother, Josh, as they go through this dark valley of grief. Josh attends our youth group each Wednesday night.
The funeral will be held at our church this Friday, with Rev. David Benson of First Congregational, officiating.
