I was saddened to hear of Scotties passing. He was part of my childhood growing up because he and my dad were best friends. My dad and him had a hunting cabin in Potter county where they spent every hunting season.  He was always a nice man to my sister and I growing up. The last time I saw him was at my mom’s viewing in 2011.  We lost a good man.  Will always remember him!!   Wendy Smeltzer, Hallam, Pa.
