Mary & Carly,

So sorry to hear of Scott's passing. He was one of the "Good Guys" !!! I will always remember our fishing trip to Canada. All of our conversations over the years. He always cared about doing the job to the highest standards. He will be missed by his friends and Loved Ones for a long,long time. I know I will miss him !!!

You are all in our thoughts and prayers !!!!

Peg,Mary & Carley, May GOD wrap you in his loving arms and give you peace. HE has given Scott a pain free body to allow him to Rest In Peace.

I send my sincere condolences to your family during this difficult time. This scripture brought me comfort when I lost a loved one and I hope it can do the same for your family. (Psalm 34:18) May God give you comfort and the strength to endure through this difficult time.

I pray that God bless all of his family through their time of morning. Scott was a genuinely skilled and kind man and our town will certainly be a lesser place without him.

Dear Mary and Carly,

I am so sorry to hear about Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Scott, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m so sorry, Mary. Please let me know if I can do anything for you. Bless all of you.

My condolences to Peggy & family.

Our deepest sympathy to Peg, Mary and Carly during this terribly difficult time. Scott was not only a cousin but in our graduating class. The Wooster High School class of 1978 will deeply miss him also. Hugs and much love.

I am so sorry Mary and Carly. Scott was a good man. Positive prayers of love and strength for both of you.

I have so many fond memories of the Franks family growing up. I hope all of your memories provide you comfort in the coming days and months.
