My Dear Mary & family,
Please know that we 3 have held you in our thoughts & prayers, from the moment we learned of Scooter's passing.
Throughout our childhood, every holiday we'd see the car drive up & announce, "Scooter & Mary are here!" We never said "Scooter" without "Mary". It was as if you went together like peanut butter & jam!
We know this is a sad time, in the midst of a truly difficult time. But, we all know that, soon & VERY soon, we'll ALL be reunited with all our Nearest & Dearest who've gone Home before us. Rest in that Blessed Hope, and know that we all are holding you all up in prayer.
With Love, Forever Your Aunt Norma & Uncle Giley's Bevy, Bonnie & Barbara Brooks
