I have discovered another forum were Scott's passing has been announced with condolences.


http://www.xmarksthescot.com/forum/f145/member-has-passed-away-95203/


I never knew what Scott looked like either.  Now I know why he was described as "dashing" in KK's biographical details.  And it sounds like he was as kind and gracious as he was handsome.  Continuing to hold KK, Cameron, Anna, and the others who loved Scott up.

*** MESSAGE FROM KATHERINE ***


Dear Ones,

Many, many thanks to all of you who have sent me such heart-warming
tributes and reactions to Scott's passing.  I am still processing it
all, of course, but your words have been a great comfort at this
unexpected and difficult time.  He was much loved and much loving.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the
Shenandoah, c/o Augusta Health Foundation, P.O. Box 1000, Fishersville,
VA 22939, where Scott and our family received such loving care in the
days before his passing.  Flowers die, but the wonderful work of the
hospice staff is an enduring blessing for all who are called to this
service.  It takes very special people, and we honor and thank them.

Even at the grave, we make our song:  Alleluia!

+Katherine

Katherine also says this in a separate email to me, "Overwhelmed with stuff to do, but hanging in there.  Sorry I couldn't make it to chat tonight." I think, under the circumstances, missing chat is quite understandable!

For general forum-member information, we (the mod/admin team) are working on a way to process donations in Scott's memory to the hospice made online rather than via postal mail, so please stand by on that matter.

Katherine also says this in a separate email to me, "Overwhelmed with stuff to do, but hanging in there.  Sorry I couldn't make it to chat tonight." I think, under the circumstances, missing chat is quite understandable!

Indeed.  :(

Thank you Bywn and Evie for forwarding KK's messages to us. I would be interested in online information for the Hospice of the Shenandoah, thank you DesertRose.
I think that Scott's memorial service on his birthday is good in the sense of celebration of a good life lived. but it will be very hard on the people closest to him. My heart goes out to his family.

One amazing lady.

Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Donations in Scott's memory can also be made at this site:  https://augustahealth.thankyou4caring.org/?fund=31  Under the area where one would enter the amount they wish to donate, the designation to Hospice is selected by default.  If you scroll down that page, under the fields for entering the information for billing/payment of the donation, there is a section labeled "Tribute Information."  There is a drop-down menu with the options "in honor of" and "in memory of", and then fields for entering the first and last names of the person in whose memory the donation is being made. 

Below that, there is a tick/check box labeled "Mail a letter on my behalf to," which, when checked, opens a series of fields for a postal mailing address.

Per Katherine's publisher (Penguin/Random House), mail sent to the following address will be forwarded to her.

You are most welcome.  When I found that the Hospice of the Shenandoah had an online donation option (after @Bynw passed on the message from Katherine that she would like donations in Scott's memory directed to that organization), I figured that would be useful information for the citizens of Rhemuth Castle, since we are scattered all over the world.

Thanks very much, DR. Flowers are beautiful but transient.

KK, I haven't been able to get online to offer condolences, but I've been thinking of you.  I hope you and Cameron have many happy memories of Scott to cherish.

Please forward my deepest condolences to his family. I first met Scott in the 1970s, when he was in the CSMR with my late father. We reconnected on the internet, and over the past few years me perhaps three of four times in LA and VA. I am currently writing a book on a topic we had long discussed, and I am very sorry he shall not be around to see it published - he shall certainly be one of the dedicandi. God rest and keep him and his.

Thank you, Bynw and DR for the donation information and link. It was very helpful and made it easy to do.
