A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

EXPRESSING THE DEEPEST SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AT THE DEATH OF RYAN CROUT, EIGHT-YEARS-OLD OF GILBERT, AND EXTENDING DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.

Whereas, Ryan Crout of Gilbert, Lexington County, succumbed on Wednesday, February 28, 1996, at the age of eight to brain cancer which he had bravely battled for a long time; and

Whereas, Ryan was a student at Gilbert Elementary School where he was a model student; he was a courageous young man who fought a valiant fight against his illness and was a true hero to countless persons; and

Whereas, he captured the community's support, admiration, and love; the "Run for Ryan Marathon" race was run on February 17, 1996, with sixty-five persons participating, and raised more than $90,000; the money was being raised to offset the costs of a two-year, $100,000 experimental cancer treatment program in Houston, Texas, that Ryan had already begun; Ryan's family plans to donate the funds to various worthy causes; and

Whereas, Ryan was an outstanding child whose life should be celebrated with joy and thanksgiving; while he will be greatly missed, he will serve as an inspiration and role model for many others who face their own personal battles of one kind or another; and

Whereas, we want Ryan's family to know that they are uppermost in our thoughts and have our deepest sympathy. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, express deepest sorrow at the death of Ryan Crout, eight-years-old of Gilbert, and extend deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Ryan's family and to Mr. Jack Fudger, principal of Gilbert Elementary School.
