I would like to express my deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends. As a ScoutMaster and Chaplain with Scouts BSA, I had the honor to make Sierra and honorary scout. This had given her some joy. We in the scouting world will always remember how brave and strong she was and that she will always be able to continue her journey watching over all of us. To you Sierra we salute you.
