In Memory of Mr. Ralph Scott

Once upon a time, my brother met a special girl and he was smart enough to marry her.
She introduced us to her father and he became part of the family.
We all loved him and we all were impressed by his artistic abilities. The man had a talent for painting.
I am lucky enough to have two of those oil paintings that he did for me.
When we do craft shows you would often find him sitting there drawing portraits of the children and never charging for them. He loved doing it for the children.
He proudly served his country and often told us stores of his time in the military.
He led a full life and is missed by a lot of people today.
Yesterday was his memorial service and we miss him.
His daughter is part of the Etsy family.


  1. Thank you Mary, for your lovely thoughts of Dad. I miss all three of "the Parents" ... at least we accomplished what we promised them, No Nursing Homes.

  2. Thanks for sharing. He sounds like he was a wonderful, giving person.

  3. What a sweet man. You were lucky to have known him. And it's wonderful that you have two of his paintings.
