To all this sweet lady's family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I hate that you all have to experience the heart break of losing another parent. I remember how for a while after I lost both of my parents, I felt orphaned. Your parents are such an important part of your life for as long as you can remember.....But on the bright side, your loss is Heaven's gain! Your Mama is walking Heaven's streets of gold praising and worshiping our Lord! Lean of
on the Lord and your precious memories and the love in your heart for your Mama as you walk the road of grief.....

Dear Scott Family:
I was so sorry to learn of Marie's passing. She was one of the sweetest, gentlest
women I have ever known. The time I spent with her was both an honor and a privilege. Her dignity and grace was an inspiration to me. She was a beautiful woman not just on the outside, but the inside as well. Her sweet gentle spirit will always be with me. Your family will continue to be in my thoughts.
