Condolence & Memory Journal

I remember when Scott was born and what a happy, helpful and kind child he was. He loved to swim in our pool in Florida with his brother, Richard, and my son Daniel. Daniel had a little sister who was always under foot, to him, but never to Scott. Scott was caring and protective of everyone, especially his dear mother who is more like a sister to me, rather than a life long friend. I remember Scott's house he built and how proud he was of it. I remember his son, Jacob's birth and I was fortunate enough to be in Forest City when his beautiful Sabrina was welcomed into the world. Scott will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He had a devastating disease that he bravely fought but lost the battle this week. I know he is at peace and in the comforting presence of our living God. Scott loved his family, and was especially close to his devoted mother. I'm so sorry for your loss but may you find comfort in having shared 56 years with a wonderful human being and look forward to seeing him again in our next life. God bless.

So very sorry to hear about Scott's passing.

I had only met with him very few times but I was so impressed at his abilities in building his large home. Then too I will always remember his yard full of fun loving goats. He was very kind to acknowledge my son and daughter. He will be missed.

May the Lord give you a special peace in your heart at this time in your life.
