Thank You from Alex Jacobs

I could not have done my Eagle Scout project without the support from all of the wonderful people who helped guide and support me through this process financially, spiritually, and emotionally.  I  especially want to thank the Vestry, Father Ken, Val Early, and especially Forrest Wilson for the marble and slate; Tommy Sheppard from Sheppard Electric Motor Service for using his giant crane to lift the cross; and to Tony Neylon and Darryl at Delta Stone LLC for giving up a Saturday to cut and set the slate and marble around the base. It has been a learning experience that I will always remember.
