Dad, it's hard to believe that this month will be 26 years since you went home to be with the Lord. And I still miss you!!

,I miss Scottie so much.  He was the only brother-in-law I had
that I could talk to. I really enjoyed his teaching, but I also remember
when he acted silly and kept us laughing. I think my best friend (Myrna)
and I  both had a "crush" on him when He & Jo were datin

Scottie and Mary Jo were friends of my parents, Sophie & Bill Sutton.  But over the years they also became my friends.  I was their baby sitter in Bellingham and then for a time in Adak, Alaska. Scottie's faith, testimony and life impacted all of my family. Everyone who knew him also knew that he loved and served Jesus.

28 years ago tomorrow, God took my soul-mate, dearest friend, and husband to be with Him. I still miss him so much, but because I love him still, I am glad he is with his heavenly father and no longer suffers any pain, sorrow or heartache. I am also assured that I will be reunited with him in that glorious place in the Lord's timing, which is so comforting to me. He was a wonderful husband

41 years ago as I was completing my military service and interested in pursuing a pastoral ministry I met Scottie.  He became my Pastor, my mentor, my advisor and my friend.  He impacted my life and my theology in ways that continue with me today.  He became like a 2nd father and definitely my spiritual father.  I can't wait for the reunion I will have with him in heaven.

I would give anything to sit down and have a conversation with Dad. For someone that didn't have the formal seminary training,he had a lot of wisdom. He invested time and energy in serving the Lord and relationships. He left a legacy and heritage for his kids that will last far beyond his 57 years.

I still talk about Scottie. He made me feel important. Some of my best memories were when he would ask me what a particular verse said and if I couldn't quote it He would challenge me to learn it before he talked to me again. He was an amazing Father and husband! I watched him closely and I'm so thankful for his influence. Can't wait to see him in Heaven one day! I loved him then and now!

I met Scottie just a few days before reporting aboard my first Fast Attack Submarine.  I knocked on his door and he invited me in poured me a cup of coffee and we began to talk about our mutual love for sound bible teaching and about the Navy.  Scottie taught me the importance of a men's prayer meeting - Scottie can wait to see you, Jay Chappell, P.J. Jensen, Bob Thieme and my Dad again!

Scottie was our Friend, Pastor/Teacher and Mentor.  We are so thankful that God sent him and Mary Jo into our lives.  He was instrumental in getting us in Bible Study and serving in the Church.  What a blessing.
As we look back we are remembering all the good times we had laughing and fellowshipping together with The Allens.

Scottie took our little family in 35 years ago to be an example and teach us about being in the ministry. He had a passion for Jesus and for people. He taught us to stand up for what we believe in. To never compromise the Word of God. He is greatly missed and we cherish the times we had with him. I'm sure he hasn't had to pick
Up a single trash can in heaven :)

Scottie was a true shepherd of the flock. He taught many lessons of what it means to be a pastor. I love that he was willing take a young man who did not know one end of the church from the other. I was able to see the man's heart and soul. I am eternally happy for his wisdom and shepherding skills he gave me,. I was blessed to know him and call him my friend.

What does it mean to be a father?  I couldn't have answered that question while he was alive - even now, with two of my own - I'm still learning.  From my current perspective, my dad was a good one - given the thoughts and fears I have known over the last 12 years of raising my own children - I have a new appreciation of how he must have struggled with that same question.  I miss him.

Two days ago, if Scottie were still on this earth, we would have celebra-ted our 65th wedding anniversary. Even though it hurts terribly and I miss him so, I am thankful that he was spared these 28 years of pain, sickness, disappointment and mental and emotional suffering. But I KNOW that I will see him again and that is my comfort and peace.

Pastor Teacher, Friend, Mentor, Shipmate.  Yes Scottie, I'm still married to Sol. If you are picking up cigarette butts, save me a pole. Sol and I love you and look forward to seeing our Lord and Savior with you by His side. Love to you and all of the church family.

Proverbs 17:6 Grandchildren are the crown of old men,
And the glory of sons is their fathers.
Dad, you are still my glory and my hero. I still look up to you in my heart and aspire to be the Godly man, husband, father, leader and friend that you are. I hope to match the legacy you achieved and strive to preserve the mantle, and to one day pass it on. Thank you.

Scottie & Mary Jo..grounded & dependent on God. Prayer warriors.
Humble servants.Scottie was a most honorable man. Steel toed boots & asbestos pants were proper attire when listening to the Word! Thank you for your faithfulness.
