Prayers for strength for all of you, but especially for Lynell, who has been my friend for over 20 years, Sophia and Gavin, my buddies who have spent Christmas with us in Branson.

To the family of Darnell:
Words can not express the fondness our family holds for the Scott family. We lost a kind and gentle soul. We all grew up together and our families had a special relationship starting with our mothers being best of friends. We'll all miss your smile and uplifting laugh.
I will not be able to attend the services, but our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during your time of sorrow. Darnell has honored his parents and done his family well.
Rest In Peace my brother...the family of Eddie Fletcher
