It saddens me deeply to report the following to you all. Dusty-Dave, a real decent Bro and long time valued member of our forum family, lost his youngest son and best friend last night. He hit a dog with his Honda
VT. The dog ran out of a ditch and on to the highway right in front of
him. He was killed instantly.

Respectfully, Pa

Thanks everybody.
Pa I plan to steal your cylinder Idea for a Urn. But of course it will be a Sport Scout Cylinder.

Dave...Please do.... !!! May we gather needed parts for you ?? Just tell us what all you need Bro. You witnessed how the Bro's responded to the urn project. They came through very honorably. I personally would be very proud and humble to participate for you in behalf of your Dearly Departed Son. Mimi and JC had to wait many long years to lay their Boy properly down to rest. Let us not wait that long for your Boy my Friend.

Respectfully, Pa

Off hand I don't have any plater recommendations Dusty. I'll see what I can turn up. I will start a new topic on the urn build and we will get this project into gear. Should have the topic up later this afternoon. It is critical you calculate volume for the cylinder and extension compartment. Brady's urn extension had to be modified for more volume. The walnut box conceals the additional volume spaced required.
