In memory of Frank A. Scott, my employer and firend for over 31 years.

His smiling way and pleasant face, are a pleasure to recall;
He had a kindly word for each, and died beloved by all.
The pearly gates were opened, a gentle voice said, "Come"
And with farewells unspoken he gently entered home.
Some day we hope to meet him, some day, we know not when,
To clasp his hand in the better land, never to part again.

Mrs. Emily Wood, and others now employed at Scott Jewelry
