    Jane, I'm so sorry to hear about Scotty. I thought that maybe he had gotten better. I saw it in the CJ yesterday, but it didn't give services. I am not feeling well enough to get to the funeral home tonight and can't come to the funeral, but I will be thinking and praying for you and all the family. I will contact you soon. I am so sorry.
