Richard,Jack & Paul - Your family always meant so much to Deb and I. Your trips in the summer were the best of times.That was when I saw my Dad laugh the most. He loved your Dad so much. I bet they have a euchre game going already. You will always be in my heart. Love, Linda
Rich, Jack and Paul
I am so sorry about your dad. I know how much you will miss him. I still miss my parents a lot. It was so good to see all of you. We had so much fun as families when we were kids. I have cherished memories of our times together. I love you. Debby
So sorry to hear about your loss. That is a a prior life for all of us, but I had some great times with you guys and your parents. I always loved coming to your house, and both of your parents always treated me like gold. Great people, both of them.
If you're interested in getting back in touch after so long a time, my email address is email@example.com. I would love to hear from you.
I loved my uncle and my prayers are with you guys.
We offer our deepest sympathy to the family for their loss. We pray the peace of God will surround them as a comfort during this time and the future to come.
Jack and family,
I was saddened to hear of your loss. Jack, your tribute to your father, the one man in your life who could proudly say “that’s my boy” was so eloquent. Robin and I will keep your in our thoughts and prayers.

Jack, we are so sad to hear of the loss of your father. The death of a family member is the hardest inevitability in life. It is especially so when the family member is as beloved as your father. I know you were very devoted to both your mom and dad.
May you and your family be comforted by the many wonderful memories of your dad's influences on your lives. Think of the joy your dad must be experiencing to be reunited with your mom once again.
May God bless you in your time of loss.
I know you are with Mom now and I miss you both so much. I am thankful that you waited and gave me one more day to spend with you. Your nurses told me that you were waiting for me to arrive.
I came to be with you to help you live. I see now that you held on to help me accept your death. We always talked about everything including the best days of my life when Gail and Paul were born and the worst when Mom passed on. Loosing you added another worst day but our last one together was one of the best.
You have always been there for your sons with wise and sound advice. I am learning now that you are gone, that your nieces, nephews, and siblings received the same. As we did, so many looked up to you and depended on you. You were always there.
You will always be a part of me and a part of my children. I can see your determination and fire in Gail’s face (and voice) when something is unjust. Paul has your strength and quick wit.
You taught your sons a lot including being strong, tough, and not to cry. I am having a hard time with that right now.
I know that you and Mom will be watching over us now because that’s the way you have always been.
I miss you Dad and will love you forever.

With a twinkle in his eye
He would never lie,
He laughed a lot
The man named Jr. Scott.
A family of boys he did raise
With wife Helen, whom we do praise,
For being there through thick and thin
To share his tales again and again.
He was always there to give a hand
To those in need , and discuss their plans.
He shared it all,his time and life
Keeping family first with his wife.
Just thinking of him makes us smile
Then sadness overwhelms us for a while.
We hope and pray for a time of peace
For the pain to fade and the memories to keep.

I've always like this picture. The oldest child is Uncle Jr (on left) middle child is Uncle Chuck, and blondie on the right is my dad Jack.
I thought that Richard, Jack, and Paul might like to know how cute are dads were. My dad Jack was always very close to his big brother Jr.
i loved listening to them tell stories about their past. It makes you appreciate what you have and acknowledge how much harder others had to work to get us here. You're in my heart.
My prayers and thoughts are with you. Just remember all the great memories you shared with your Dad and he will always be with you.
I am so sorry for your loss. I never met Mr. Scott, but from Jack's stories and he was a wonderful man full of life and fun. He will be missed.
Lowell and Joyce Johnson
We extend our sincere sympathies to you, Jack, and your family. It is always difficult to lose a parent. You will be in our thoughts.
Jack and Family- You are all in my thoughts and prayers. He had a warm heart and was full of life. I smile remembering how much fun he had demonstrating his hula girl tattoo on his ankle :)
THERE'S SO MANY THINGS THAT WILL BE MISSED ABOUT UNCLE JR. HIS CLEVER WAY OF TELLING TALL TALES AND LEAVING YOU TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY WERE JUST THAT. IF YOU WATCHED HIS FACIAL EXPRESSIONS, SOMETIMES YOU JUST KNEW. THE WAY HE LIKED TO TEASE THE LITTLE ONES AND GET THEM GOING WAS TRULY AMUSING. NOT JUST FOR HIM BUT ANYONE WATCHING AND KNOWING WHAT HE WAS UP TO. HE LEAVES SUCH A VOID IN THE LIVES OF US AND SOME OF THE BEST MEMORIES ANYONE COULD IMAGINE. MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL OF HIS FAMILY AND MY PRAYERS AS WELL.
Jack & Family,
I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father. You're in my thoughts.
Words fail me, and I can't imagine your family's sorrow. However, I can tell you that Gleason was full of life and shared that with anyone. He was funny and engaging every time I saw him. I see a lot of him in Jack. So, there will always be some of Gleason around.
Jack and Family so sorry for your loss. He left a rich legacy of character and integrity will live forever in his posterity.

To the Scott family; I am sorry for your loss. I met Mr Scott (the Mr part is generational) several times at Jack and Bonnie's house. Each time it was a warm and comfortable experience. One measure of a man is the family he helps raise. In that measure he can be proud, and know his work was successful.
I treasure the discussions I had with Mr. Scott during his visits to Seattle. He was a neat man devoted to his family and friends. His interests and work ethic were similar to those of my father. Mr Scott made the world a better place and he will be dearly missed.
After my grandma passed away in 97, grandpa and I became good buddies. We took many trips in the 98 50th Anniversy Edition red F-150,I would always make sure it was clean and waxed. I would always remember grandpa telling me how people would comment on how good his truck looks, I know he would tell with pride my grandson takes care of it. As he grew older and had a harder time getting around, I would take care of his lawn, clean his house, and take him to appointments. While grandpa was in the hospital he always reminded me to do well in school. I will miss him very much,there is a song I want to dedicate in his memory: In Color by Jame Johnson. Before he went into the hospital I played it for him in the kitchen and we both cried. It makes me cry that he is gone, but it makes me smile he is with my grandma.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during the loss of your father. How precious are the memories of a father's love toward his family.
I miss talking with you like we did every day, and now for you I will with love still pray.
