Loretta and Tracie and familiy; I was so saddened to hear of Scott's passing. Please accept our most heartfelt condolences. We're so sorry we couldn't attend the wake, but I know you will understand that even a small cough sniffles and sore throat that we are experiencing demand careful monitoring and sequestering. Please remember that old friends are never forgotten and our prayers are with you at this time.
