It was the family’s desire that a Gathering of Friends and Family be held on Wednesday, November, 12, 2008 at the Gowing Chapel from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Burial of Cremains will be held at a later date in Chenoa Cemetery, Chenoa, Ill.
The family has suggested that Memorial Donations in Scott’s name be made to your local Salvation Army.
You all have our deepest sympathy at this time. Scott spent many hours at our home in Orrick playing with our children. We lived behind you all on Front St. during the late 1980’s. May you have the peace and comfort of God to help each of you during your grieving period. I pray you have only good memories to comfort you.
God Bless Each of You! Bill, Terri, Dustyn, Jordyn and Gabryn Hazel
