HONORARY MEMBER CHARLIE FUTHEY PASSES AWAY

Some of you members might remember little Charlie Futhey, he was only 5 years old at which time he was diagnosed with cancer, that was nine years ago.  That year the Marauders made him an Honorary Member and had Charlie as a special guest at our show, and even raised money for him and had a Charlie pick award.  For the past nine years, Charlie has fought his cancer, as it would come and go.  This last time it really hit him hard, and I am sadden to say that yesterday (Mother’s Day) Charlie loss  his battle with cancer and went on to be in Heaven where he will no longer have deal with the pain and suffering that the cancer caused him and his family.  Please keep Charlie’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I have a picture but am currently unable to post it.
