    • Thank you for you kindness and prayers.

  2. So sorry for your loss. May God give you comfort. Prayers for you and the family.

  3. Scott, I was so sorry to read this obituary and am praying for your strength at this time. Jessica was quite the character that I enjoyed being around. I remember she bought her hula hoop to Myrtle’s one time and I had to try it too. I even ordered one but was not as faithful using it as she was. She did love her animals too but loved you most.

    • Thank you for your kind words and prayers.

      • Scott please contact me.
