  31. Great families made up our little St Joseph’s primary school and church community, and the Scott’s were definitely one of them. Fond memories of Darryl, Dyson, Jenny, Raymond and Sue-Ellen surround my childhood memories. Such a genuine, active and country family once again suddenly stuck with immense grief that has deflated those who knew Darryl and those who didn’t. This sadness and shock we will carry with us for the rest of our lives. Deepest sympathy.
