Our beloved brother-in-law Scott has left us with a heavy heart, but the memories of our precious time together keeps us smiling, until we see him again. His Jenkins family will always keep the memory of his funny, gentle spirit ever present as we continue our journey down here wthout sweet Scott. Loved him deeply.
