Many fond memories at the basketball games with your mom and dad. Always so supportive of the players. Your dad is smiling and resting at the feet of Jesus. May the memories you share help sustain you in the days and weeks ahead. The sky is just shiner with your dad smiling down over you all.
We were saddened to hear Dale had passed away. He was always such a sweet and kind man. Loved listening to the stories when we used to get hay from him. He'll certainly be missed by many.
My deepest sympathy to all of you.

LouJean, Scotty, Amber and all the rest of the Scott family, I’m so sorry to hear of Dales passing. I’m remembering the last time I saw Dale & LouJean was at the heart Drs office. He was still feisty and walking his own path. He & LouJean always created the place to go back home to, “the farm”. May your family gather and share the good things that made you a strong family.

LouJean and family, so sorry for your loss. We have so many memories of Dale and all of you. You have been a big part of my life since 1963 when you moved in next door to my folks and it has continued to this day for us and our kids. I remember so many fun times, dances in the barn and the basement, hayrides, and even making hay and cutting wood. We will miss seeing him out on the tractor and the good visits we had whenever we stopped in. Please know you are in the thoughts and prayers of our whole family. If there is anything we can do to help, just call, we are not very far away.
Dear Scott Family, I still remember the very warm welcome at your place in 1969 and another visit at your place afterwards. It was a pleasure to be at your place and Dale was an important factor of that. So here are my wishes and hopes that you will be able to bear the grief and sorrow and keep a loving memory of your father / husband /friend etc.
