    Scottie has and will be missed by all his Winchester, Virginia friends. My mom, Katherine Warfield, was a traveling, square dancing, and bowling companion of Scottie while he lived in Winchester. They took amazing trips to other countries and I can never forget the trip to the Galapagos Islands where they snorkled and talked about how the boat made wet landings. They also participated in the Senior Olympics bowling.

    We have many fond memories that will be charished for years.
