August 28, 2013 "Many recall the funeral of a special man. As Bill, Jr. said, the church organ needed fixed; that was the tip of the iceberg. Our sincere gratitude goes to anyone & everyone whomever & wherever deliberately or inadvertently did anything to help make this a very special day. Our thanx & prayers obviously to those helping take care of Mrs. Scranton & so very many others. God bless 1 & all. Take care." - Ray Allen (Lock Haven, PA)
August 15, 2013 "My deepest condolences to the Scranton family for their loss. I am truly overwhelmed by the scope of his accomplishments in life and the legacy he left behind for all of us. You see, I grew up on Lily Lake Rd just down the road from his home, and although at a young age I understood he was an important man, he never made you feel he was. Our little town of Dalton PA only had about 1200 residents so everyone knew everyone. Mr. Scranton would always smile and wave as he drove down the hill just like everyone did. In town to get his hair cut or to go to the post office, he always spoke to everyone and made you feel he was just a nice, regular guy. Well, we know he was and so much more but to a little girl at the time, that's what he was to me. My Dad was the only registered Democrat in town at one point and even he liked Mr. Scranton and,that is saying something!! Dear and kind sir, please know you left an indelible imprint on your little hometown,your country, the world and, yes, a young girl who lived on Lily Lake Rd." - Jan McAndrew Henry (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
August 15, 2013 "Susan and family,
Sorry to hear about your dad's passing. He and my dad, Danny, who died in 1974, were friends "back in the day". He was a progressive and effective leader, a real boost to PA and the Scranton area.
Ron Lewis, CSA '63" - Ronald Lewis (Emmaus, PA)
August 14, 2013 "I would like to express my deepest feelings of sorrow in midst of your grief. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow." - Lisa Ormiston Ryder (Taylor, PA)
August 14, 2013 "May God bless his soul. His life in public service will never be forgotten in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The duty for man is the duty for God. I was reminded of this everytime I have met Governor Scranton. My prayers go out to his soul and to his family. He will be sadly missed." - Peter Troyan (Wilkes-Barre, PA)
