  2. Scott – We want you to know that YOU and ALL of your family are in our prayers now. You were all there for us when we needed you the most – (hard to believe that has been almost 3 years ago) – so please let us do the same for you now. Take care of each other.

    God bless you for being such a good friend.

    Let those ‘wonderful family memories’ we shared from the many horse shows, rides and camping trips keep a warm place in your heart during this difficult time. Those were the good old days but the best day will be when we are re-united with the ones who got there before us.
