My deepest sympathy to the family in the loss of Mr. Scott. He was a dear friend for many years and I always enjoyed talking with him. When I visited the nursing home to sing, he amazed me at all the things he remembered that I had forgotten. He was quite a remarkable man and will be missed. Jimmy, Scotty, and Miss Delle, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thinking of you Jimmie! I have fond memories of your dad at the mill - always a smile, always a gentleman. In most of those situations I was just visiting, but I did have the honor of spending a summer there! Union Point is blessed to have you.

OO was a very welcoming person. He was always a smiling face when I ran into him at the GCCC or about town. He was the ultimate southern gentleman. I was fortunate to have known him and you were blessed with a grand dad!
