My condolences to the Oldenburg Family. Ian was a great kid. It's a shame he was taken before we could see what a great man he would become. He and I personally may not have been that close, but this still hits close to home. Once a Norseman, Always a Norseman and all that. Know I have this family in my heart.

A thoughtful observer, a team player, a gifted writer, rarely the first to speak, but always the one to listen to, so quick to smile and encourage others. I'm keeping you all in my prayers.
