Scott family. I am so sorry to hear about Jr. My mother loved your mom and dad so much. She use to set and talk about the laughs they had over the years at the plant. Momma would talk about the good old day there with them. You all have a some special parents. This world has lost some great people in this world, but the Lord has gained some special angels. I know it will be hard but just think of all the thinks that he has been spared from down here. His fight is over and now he gets his reward.

Debbie, Randy, Robert and Terry,
So sad to hear of your Dad's passing. I have found memories of your dad and his working with my dad to keep the refrigeration systems operating at the processing plants. I also have found memories of my relationship with all of you growing up with me and our childhood days together. I have many sometime comical but serious memories of trying to put the bad guys away with Terry as we worked arson cases together.

My prayers are with you all, fully believing God will comfort and console you through this process of grief. May God Bless each of you.

My sincere sympathy to the family.  Junior was a special person.  Judy always insisted on seeing Junior each time we returned to Kentucky.  He was always a joy to be around.  His playful demeanor and smile were infectious.  He will truly be missed.  However, he will always remain in our hearts.
