  1. “When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart. For every time you think of me I’m right there in your heart.”

  2. Cece,

    On behalf of Mom, Eddie and Tim, please know you are in our thoughts. I envision Tony and Greg are already up to no good. I’m finding that the quality of my life is not defined by the number of friends I boast nor the collection of material items I acquire. The quality of my life is defined by the energy I invest in the things that are most important to me; family and friends. By such measure, Tony was a gem.

  3. To Cece and the rest of the family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Tony was a sweet man & will be very missed by so many people. Your thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this very difficult time. Remember how much you loved him & it will get you though this time. XXOO

  4. From my family deepest condolences remember we will see him in the rapture god loves beautiful flowers on his table stay strong .may god bless you and keep you

  6. To the entire Scoggins family, I know you are suffering a huge loss with the passing of our dear Tony. He was a fine fella and friend to all. It was always a joy to see him and his smiling face. Please know that my thoughts are with all of you.

  7. Cece and Scoggins Family,
    All of you remain in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss. I know Tony is celebrating with our Savior. The last time I saw him at one of our reunions he was telling me about his faith in Christ and how much joy it brought him. He was encouraging me and was so excited about my journey into ministry. He will be missed, but the reunion in heaven will be glorious! “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” Rom 8:18

  8. Cece and all the Scoggins family,

  11. Words cannot describe the sadness in our hearts. You have always made us feel as if we are a part of your family. For that we are forever grateful. We are praying for you all.

  12. When you lose someone that you love, take comfort in
    knowing that those who were saved are now with God. For
    it is written that when we die; The dust returns to the
    ground it came from, and the spirit returns to
    God who gave it. ( Ecclesiastes 12:7 )

  13. For God so Love the World, he gave us Life to pursue our Dreams,
    Hopes, and Realities.
    R.I.P Tony
    Colt For Life !!!!

  14. A child of the King is not been lost, he has just returned to the palace. He has finally made it home after a long journey. I imagine his written about smile is beautiful there.
    I know this change is hard for his loved ones here, but God is extending His love, comfort, & peace to each of you, so let Him in to heal your heart & souls.
    God’s Abundance of Grace to you all.
    Much Love in Him,,
    Your family in Christ (part of LCC)
