    We hit a home run when we bought this house. It was a decent house on an acre lot but the best things about it were the neighbors. It only had one neighbor and those were the Scotts. For over 30 yrs we had the best neighbors in the world. We sure hated to see you move. We are heartbroken to hear that Mr. Scott has passed away. Please accept our heartfelt condolences for your loss. He was truly a wonderful man. If we can do anything for you please let us know.
