To the Scott Family. I am so sorry to read the passing of Mrs. Scott. I have many childhood memories of her when we lived on Orchard Drive.

I was saddened to read of the passing of Mrs. Scott. Growing up on Halliard Ave. , I have memories of playing in the lot between our houses with Pattianne and Kenny. Our mothers both being Nurses often shared war stories together. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. A special thank you to Dennis for his kind words last year when my mother passed away, please know that we saw them and appreciated your sympathy very much.
