Dear Angus Family,
We moved from Ames when Scot was only 18 months old but were very close to your family. Our children were about the same ages as Scot's siblings. We have remained in close contact with Dale and June. We had lunch with them in September in Ogden, UT.
We send our condolences to Dawn and the boys and to the entire Angus and Ricketts families.

Our sympathy to the the extended Angus family over Scot's tragic death. I remember him as well as his siblings as students at Northwood School. (Two of the Angus children were classmates of our children.) They have wonderful memories I'm sure from childhood.
May the Lord help you find peace.

I have many fond memories of Scot in high school. We had some special discussions about life that I still remember today. I appreciated his friendship, and I am saddened by his passing. Your families are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray you will find peace and comfort in this hard time. Scot will be remembered always.

Dawn and family,
I wanted to say how saddened I was to hear about the passing of Scot. I received word from my dad (George Brown) of his passing. I used to babysit Scot when I lived in Ames. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
