There is great sadness in this story. Bill Reimers was part of making my son's Boy Scout experience a positive part of continuing love for the outdoors, camping and trail biking.

Concern for Bill's family and the impact on their lives sadly follows the concern we must all share for those hurt personally and financially.

I will wish for hope and resolve, but for now there is only sadness in this entire result,

He STOLE my Mom's (age 75) ENTIRE life savings! $200,000 was all the money she had to live on for the rest of her life. Now it is gone. I wonder when old Francis W. “Bill” Reimers is going to start paying back the money he stole and return it to my mom; Lois Poppen.
