My memories of Grandma Scott will always be with me. She and all of the Scotts treated me like a son. Her tireless service to her family and the children she raised is a testimony to the Lord.
Jill and I send our love and condolences to the family and pray God's comfort and peace knowing that that she is with the Savior.

Kay, Steve, Mike, Janice and Shelly, so sorry to hear of Jacquelines passing. She was a good person and a great friend to my mom, Mary Hill. Our families and children shared many good times on Claymont drive. The last time I saw her was at Lubys cafeteria in Plano several years ago. We had a very nice conversation. It didn’t seem that long ago that Doug, Steve, Glenn and I used to ride our bikes up the big hill on Santa Cruz, or play summer baseball on different teams. Enjoyed the great times at Samuell HS where we all became great friends. Time has marched on for us, Rest In Peace “Jackie” as you were known to my Mom.
