Seems all of us kids growing up had so much fun and time together. The Hogle clan and McLaughlin clan were always together. Mom's were the best of friends for sure. Scott seems you were always picking on me in a fun way. R.I.P. my friend will always remember our friendship as kids, just wish I could have been around as adults together. Prayers to the family may the Lord bring peace in their hearts. Till we meet again. .. DeeDee (Hogle) Cloud

My deepest condolences to Rachel, Cynthia, Sharron, Alicia, Jay and Jesse. Scott was your husband, father and step father. I bet you all can remember some time that was a good memory with Scott. I know that his brothers and I could tell a bunch. Scott it is so hard to think of you not being here to agitate us. We all had such a special love for each other. As for his grandchildren, your Papa loved everyone of you. I hope as you grow up that you not forget to tell your kids about him. As you are telling them, I pray that you smile. Cynthia, Sharron, Alicia, Tommy, and Amanda, you 5 probably spent more time with him as you have grown up. He had his nick names for each of you. I will miss you Scott. I just wish I could tell you in person. Love you Scott
