Condolence & Memory Journal

We met Scott & Terri when they lived in Crete. He was working in Homewood at the time and shared that he was going to start his own business in Frankfort. Visited him at his "Scott's paint and carpet" numerous times as he worked long hours to get his business going. Scott was always so much fun to be around. His easy smile, sense of humor, non-judgemental attitude, and kindness to others were his trademarks. Everyone who had the good luck to know Scott was better for it. Nancy and I send our blessings to Terri and Scott's family. We love PAWS and will happily make a donation in Scott's memory. Peace.

Toby, my sincere sympathies to you and the family. I only had the pleasure of meeting Scott one time and that was when we all bumped into each other in Gatlinburg, TN. If you are his mother, I know he had to be a wonderful man. Blessings and sympathy to all.

Scott touched many lives and provided fond and FUN memories. His infectious laugh will always be remembered.

Our family have been friends with the McMurtry family since 1957 when we moved next door to them in Park Forest, Il. Our kids played together every day. We all will miss Scott and give our deepest sympathies to his entire family.

Scott, you're already making plans to create more beautiful flower gardens above. Heaven is millions of years old. You may need to give it a fresh coat of paint.
