Dear Marge and Garner family, While I want to wish you our condolences, it is not with a heavy heart... for we know that Scott is with the Lord in heaven and probably riding a bike on Golden Streets. He WILL be missed by us who are left here... Isaiah 40:31 “…but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” David & Sonjia

We are so sorry to hear about Scott. He calledRandy after Randy’s cancer diagnosis a few weeks ago, and they had a really good visit. So very thoughtful of Scott to think of others as sick as he was. Randy said that growing up, Scott was just good. Just throughly good. What a compliment. The world was better because of him.
Lanita Williams left a message on July 17, 2020:
So sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. Due to distance we didn’t see each other very often but I always enjoyed our interaction on Facebook and will certainly miss him.

Scott was the finest man I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. We put in thousands of miles each year getting ready for one thing. The MS150 bike ride! Good times my friend! Toughs and prayers Marge.

So sorry to hear about Scott, he was a great guy. Went to church with him at Crossroad and Delight 1st Assembly. When he would come in to visit family, if we knew he was here, we would always ask him to preach at Crossroad. Praying God gives you peace during this difficult time.
Kae Higgins left a message on July 16, 2020:
So sorry for your loss. I know Scott is rejoicing with the angels in heaven. The time has come for him to see the beautiful face of Jesus and walk the streets of gold and sit beside the river. It will only be a short minute until you see him again. I imagine he is singing and sitting at the feet of our Lord and Savior. I know your hearts are broken, I am praying for God's peace and comfort to surround you as you go through this time of sorrow.
Peggy Dickens left a message on July 16, 2020:
