September 13th marks a day that will not be soon forgotten. We’ve lost a soul whose life enriched everyone that met him. Rod Palmer was one of a team of four people who arrived at ABC Mountain Retreat just about eleven years ago. With his design skills brought with him from his years at Hanford and love of the outdoors, he gave the camp not only hard work with integrity but helped to shape our understanding of what it means to live in the mountains. If you have ever spent a few minutes talking with him around the campfire, you have heard some great stories of the best ways to hunt, and why he stopped doing it after many years of successful seasons. We were blessed to have him here, and will miss him. God is the one in charge of our days, and called him home.
