Our hearts are heavier today than at any point since Scott’s accident on September 22nd. For the past 10 days, Scott’s struggle to overcome his injuries sustained on that day had progressively worsened as he battled infection, some bouts with delirium, and ultimately pneumonia. It is with incredible sadness that we must tell you that Scott succumbed to his injuries early this morning. A beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, compatriot, leader and inspiration has left us here on earth and is now among the other angels in Heaven.
We have spent the day today making final arrangements and want to invite you to say farewell to Scott and join us in a celebration of this man and his life.
There will be two viewings at Thacker Brothers Lake Monticello Funeral Home (138 Heritage Dr., Palmyra, VA 22963).
The first will take place on Friday, January 3rd, 2014, from 6 PM – 8 PM.
The second will take place on Saturday, January 4th, 2014, from 9 AM – Noon.
A funeral service will follow the viewing on Saturday at 3PM at Grace And Glory Lutheran Church (683 Thomas Jefferson Parkway, Palmyra, VA 22963).
We welcome you to join us as we bid farewell to Scott. And we thank you for all the love, support, hope and prayers you have given us throughout this entire ordeal. While we are weak and in great pain now, we know that Scott is no longer suffering and is in a better place, and we will become stronger and the pain will subside with time, your support and God’s love. And we also know that the very reason Scott touched all of your lives is because you are such incredibly special people. We were all blessed to have him on this earth and in our lives. His purpose is now fulfilled in Heaven, in the hands and with the mercy of God.
Bless you all,
A graveside service will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Monday, January 6, 2014 at Quantico National Cemetery in Triangle, VA.
