94 Years Remembered in 94 Days-Post 58 (Bill and Rose Scott)

Being from a small town and newspaper articles were done about people who used to live in Douglas.    My mom and Teresa cut out a lot of articles.   They also had things put in the Dispatch that would never happen now without a cost and would never happen in a big city.   Here are two articles about the deaths of my Uncle Bill (my Godfather and  his wife, Rose).  Both my mom and Teresa were crazy about their little brother.  However, Teresa was especially fond of Bill because they were closest in age.  I remember how hard this was for them.   

Also, below these two articles is a picture I found of their wedding. Father McGovern is with them.  I believe that he officiated at their wedding, as he did so many other family events.
