Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
My heartfelt wishes go to Mr. Scullin's family, especially Charlotte. Mr. Scullin was the perfect father, and he opened his house to me when I visited, sharing stories, jokes, and mementos. He's someone whose legacy will live on in pensive, thoughtful actions.
