Dear Kathy and Jay,Tom,Stephanie, Brittany,& Pam

We are thinking of you at this sad time with the loss of your sweet Mother. There is never a good time but she had a wonderful life and was loved by many especially her Bill, her children, grandchild, and many,many good friends. We have been talking about how sweet she was with Lavens who was around her the most of my children with her friendship with Brittany and we remember her love of people young and old; how lovely she always looked, taking pride in her appearance,and her beautiful home filled with many examples of her handiwork; and her love of Cats and dogsVinnie! You all were blessed to have had such a loving Mother and also such a loving Father who will now be together with her again.

Please know that you are in our hearts and minds and prayers.

Much Love, Diane, Bill, & Lavens

Warren and I loved Shirley and Bill Scott. They were with us on our wedding night and always made us feel like “family”. Mama Scott was a very special, sweet L A D Y who loved her family, her kitchen, her crafts and her friends. We have videos of our visits with them when our two children were small. They loved company and made company feel like part of the Scott Family. There is a sadness in my heart for Pam and Jay and Tom and Brittany and their families….but a joy to have known her, to have loved her.
