    Visiting David Scarlett in June was the best thing that I did this year (2007). David was still just as pleasant as ever, even with the medical struggles that he had. I regret only that I did not manage to visit with David much more over past years: I think he would have taught me (by his usual behaviors) how to cause everyone to like me. Also, I noticed that about every seventh or eighth word that he said was "Trish". Please keep in touch Trish.

    I mourn the loss of a fine man and a fine uncle. A more personable person I am unable to imagine. He always treated my mother with warmth and positive support. Please note our regrets.
