My thoughts and prayers are with all during this difficult time.
Uncle Buddy and I had some memories together and probably didn’t share a lot of them but the 1 we couldn’t hide was when we backed the truck in the river 1 evening as we were going shrimping in Blackrock!! Ha I was young and freaking and asked uncle buddy what are we going to do? Of course his answer was come on Dennis get in the boat we’re going shrimping ain’t nothing we can do now!! And we did!! Scott and Michelle you guys have had 2 of the best loving and proud parents any child could have ever asked for and know that both are up in heaven together now catching up on their time away. I’m very sorry for you guys loss and I love you all and words can’t ease the hurt just know our good Lord was ready for him and there is no suffering etc any longer. Love you all Dennis Scott
Hugs and prayers He was such a special man
