The recent dedication of the Trooper Sherman L Scott Jr Memorial Highway is a proud moment in my family. Uncle Lee (he was always known as Lee) was my mother's baby brother. There has been a hole in our hearts these past 55 years that can never be filled. I only wish we had known in time to attend the dedication. Thank you to all who made this possible.

Rest peacefully, Uncle Lee.
