Sending my heartfelt condolences to The Scott Families. To know Brother Albert Scott was to Love him. He was such a dashing dresser ,always sharp and I would tell him - Sir you are wearing that suit well and he would smile and give a compliment "right back atcha" Just a Beautiful soul. I could count the many times he would come up to me after church, saying Hello & give an encouraging word; Well (young lady) He'd call me smile, you are blessed. You can really sing. And with that I can say farewell my musician friend. Thanks be to God for the enormous, gracious life of Brother Albert. He will be sorely missed by me and the Faithful members of Saint James AME Church. From Beatitudes in Matthew 5:4, Jesus says, "Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted amen". Peaceful Blessings, Gigi Crawford

To the family of "Major Scott", my family & I send our sincere condolences to his loving family. As a member of Greater Bethel AME Leesville LA, he was an influential part of my life growing up as a youth member. I believe I can speak for all of the girls that sang in the choir then that Major Scott was a true example of a Godly man, loving father and willing servant of the Lord. I will never forget the lessons on IMPROMTU SPEAKING in his attempt to prepare us for the future beyond the four walls of the church. Dawn, we are praying for your strength, peace and comfort at this hour & the days ahead. Love Tanya Jackson and family Little Rock AR
