Nicholas Alexander Scroggs (age 14), in memoriam

A child of friends of ours, Nicholas Scroggs, died on Thursday in a totally senseless accident.

A sweet, polite, smart, sensitive kid.

Celebration Services for Nicholas Alexander Scroggs (age 14) of Grand
Prairie, TX, will be 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 16, 2008 at the Ruthe
Jackson Center in Grand Prairie. Nicholas died December 11, 2008 in
Grand Prairie. He was born to Robert and Barbara Dent Scroggs August
18, 1994 in Denton and was attending Grand Prairie High School. Nick
was taking a full slate of Gifted & Talented classes at Grand Prairie
High School where he was also a member of the swim team and a friend
to everyone. He had a passion for reading, drawing, and playing all
types of musical instruments, especially the drums. He was always
gung- ho about trying new experiences and his smile and energy were
contagious to everyone. Left behind to cherish his memory are parents
Robert Scroggs and his wife Katherine of Grand Prairie, Barbara
Brumbaugh and her husband Don of NRH, brother Houston Chapman, sister
Madalyn Brumbaugh, grandparents Jack and Charlotte Scroggs of Denton
and Charles and Lee Dent of Poncha Springs, CO, great grandmothers
Genevieve Scroggs of Denton and Ethel Dill of Fort Collins, CO, and
many aunts, uncles, and cousins who also loved him dearly. Memorial
contributions are suggested to the Nicholas Scroggs Memorial Fund.

Please warn your children of the danger of highways, and remember this bereaved family in your thoughts and your hearts.
