I'm so sorry to hear about Mama Scott passing. I know she was loved by all who knew her. I always enjoyed visiting with her when I was in Amarillo and seeing her beautiful flowers, because she definitely had a green thumb.
She will be missed by all who knew her. May you find comfort in the Lord during this time of grief. Russell, Nancy, and Stan, you are my Amarillo family.

Your mom was always so sweet to Micki and I. The first time Micki and I visited Ralph and Russell at their home, Mama Scott told Ralph and Russell, "Those girls need to come more often." She was refering to the fact that her boys had did some extra house cleaning in preparing for our visit. It always brings a smile to me when I think of her saying that. Deepest condolences to Nancy, Stan, and Russell during this time.
