Followed will be a rejoicing of my life on Wednesday 8/14/2013 at 5pm at Blaylock Funeral Home Chapel. The service will include a rejoicing of life, military, and masonic ceremonies, so please allow time. Interment will follow at Greenleaf Cemetery at sunset. My body dies but my spirit lives on through grace and faith in Jesus Christ and each of you who knew me. I’ve served my country, family, community, students, and friends to the best of my ability and proudly. I spent my last days walking closer with my Lord.
I want to thank my physicians and friends Chris Stephens, Allan Cass, Sammy Horton, Timothy Bumann and their staff, who were relentless in their efforts to make my health their primary concern and my final days honored by quality of time and a dignified death. I want to thank the health care professionals at Brownwood Regional Medical Center and all departments and services for their support to my wife, Cynthia, allowing her to be with me in my last days. First Aide Agency and Girling Lighthouse Hospice and their staff for meeting our specific needs for at home care.
I want to give thanks and praise to the love of my life, my wife, Cynthia. I was greatly loved by my precious daughter Shannon Adams and husband James, their children Bryan and daughter, Tatum; Tyler, and Colby; my brother T.D. Scott and his wife June; my sister-in-laws Linda Dennis, Melissa Bingham and her husband Garlan; Bodie and Lynn Dykes and their son Cody, wife Jennifer and children Levi, Eli, Ivy and Joy; nieces Toni Ballard and her husband Brady and children Jarron and Sutton; Melinda Griffith; Sandy Nigh, husband John and daughter Lindsay; Sheryl Thompson, husband Robbie and children, Jordan and Peyton; brother-in-law Robert N.

I’ve been blessed by my Shiloh Bible Christian family and numerous family and friends who went above and beyond to meet my spiritual needs.
I follow in the footsteps of my mother and father, Wesley C. and Annie Brunett, and my only son, James Gregory Scott.
Don’t worry about me. At sunset it’s just now approaching the best part of the day.
....James was an outstanding fiddler and a very nice friend to all he met and played with at Pearl. We all sure wish we could have the chance to play another fiddle tune with him, see his friendly smile and hear his warm greeting. He is gone too soon and we'll all miss him a lot.
