    Joyce, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Mid was a great guy and I always enjoyed our visits when I would run into him at the lumber yard. His quite demeanor and quick wit made him a jewel to be around and you were the perfect couple. I know you will miss him. Johnny Perdue

    Dear Scott Family – Saddened to know about the loss of Mid – It was a blessing to have been given the chance to work for Mid thru Tom’s help. I was drifting & Mid allowed me the time to learn a craft from his example of skill, hard work & longsuffering. I became a carpenter and a better man from this brief tenure in the Mid’s life. I am forever grateful. I pray for your comfort during this time. Ron Pope
