Dear George, Harold, James, Patricia, Amy, Debbie, Chris, Florence and all the grandchildren and family,
So sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. Connie was inspiration to me in many ways I can remember talking to her and George about being a nurse she inspired me to make my dreams come true. I am so sorry I am not able to be there with you as I had eye surgery last Thursday and live so far away. I pray for you all for the next few days will be very hard but always remember she will be with you in your heart forever and she will be looking out for you each and every day. Love you all and my heart goes out to each and everyone of you.

My condolences go out to the family and friends.
I am so sad to hear that your mom has passed away. My sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. RIP Mrs. Stott.
Sorry for your loss never easy going though loss of mother father or even children. Just have to remember the good memories. Just know I’m thinking about what the family going though. I remember going though this with my parents never easy. Things will get easier but takes time. Stay safe healthy and happy. Janis
My condolences to the Stott family but especially to Art. In the short time I’ve gotten to know him when he joined the Guilderland Fire Department, it was obvious how much he cherished his grandmother and how influential she was over him.
