Sheila and Jack,
I was just looking at his face book page and thinking how much he looked like his Dad Tom . I was married to tom's brother Bill and remember his dad telling me he liked the name Scott as I also have a Scott McDougall . I know he is at peace now and can walk with his Dad. Remember the good times you had with him . Judy Olafson ( McDougall) .
