My heart and prayers go out to the family, friends and co-workers of Alvey "Bo" Banzhoff, who passed from this world on May 31.

I know only too well the grief, tragedy, and feelings of emptiness all must feel. My son, Kristoffer Loden, at the age of 19, met with his death exactly 11 years, 8 months, 1 day, and approximately 12 hours earlier at the same place of employment - The Maryland Paper Co..

Please place your trust in God, and believe in yourselves. May God bless all of you.

Thank you

Many thanks to all of my friends, relatives and co-workers who have helped me by showing love and compassion during this time of extreme trauma.
