Sorry to see that Joel has passed away. He was a huge help to me in Scouting and Troop 3. We miss his steady, quiet way of helping with the boys earning their merit badges. He was someone who was there to help when we needed it. Arlene and I send our condolences to Jennie, Jaron and the rest of the Bernstein Family.
