Not sure what to say?

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mary and her family for their loss.
Governor and Mrs. Scranton treated me with the most heart felt and geniune respect when I was lucky enough to have been asked to share a lunch with them one afternoon while working in Dalton. I will never forget the conversation and much more so, I will never forget what it was like to have met two of the kindest and most inspiring individuals in my career. Our prayers are with all of your family and friends.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
