Message:  The possible value of that?

Several years ago my nephew, Scotty, was killed in an automobile wreck while in the navy. He and his girl friend were planning on being married. All those plans for the future, plans of his and her parents, grandparents, other family members and friends snuffed out in a moment in time.

His girl friend had written a poem about Scotty and submitted it to Poetry.com. It was placed in one of their books for the whole world to see. She brought a copy of the book, that she had purchased, to Scotty's mother and pointed out the page that her tribute to him was located. For years that book has been on the coffee table turned to that page. It somehow gives her a closeness to him and something that she can point to with pride when others look at the book.

Even when some people try to scam you , God can turn it around for good.
