Tony would like to offer a special thank you to Linda and Brett for all the attention and love they gave our dad. 

Our dad wanted a very heart felt special “Thank You” to a long time devoted and beloved friend to both the Scott and Gunter Families, Ms. Doris Heller of Columbia, SC, who just recently celebrated her ninety-eighth birthday.

Doris, we couldn’t have done it without you! There is no doubt that you are truly a gift of God.
