He was a very kind-hearted soul, and will be missed by so many. My best memories was all the times watching sue and Scotty square-dance…my folks always thought so highly of them and even later in life how great of a friend Sue was to my mom up until her passing in 2000. I’m forever grateful for that friendship they gave mom.

Please let Sue (or Susie as mom called her) that my prayers are with her and the family…I’m sure Scotty is now dining at the table with Jesus, maybe even still in his overalls. Gods peace and comfort to you all!!!
