Fred, boys and family. My dad, Gerry Scales, was unaware of Susie's passing and wanted me to pass on his and my mothers sincere condolences. He was shocked when I had a chance to speak to him about it. He said he was sorry if he had known they would have attended her calling hours. They send their thoughts and prayers.
