L. David Griffin (Griff)
We have lost a force of nature. WI K9 SOS founder, President 2005 - 2015, mentor, teacher, adviser, trainer, friend, and - of course - husband and father. K9 handler for Autumn, SARg and Maxine. Griff had many talents: innovator of our scout program, lover of all gadgets, quick wit & sense of humor, and so much more.
These shoes cannot be filled. You will be deeply missed. God speed, Griff.
