  33. Cheryl Barstow says:

    My deepest sympathies and blessings to the Holloway family as Scott passes through the veil to the other side. During this time of reflection, I look back on the years we spent together in the 80s and early 90s and the many significant moments we shared. May his soul find peace until such time as it’s ready to return or move on. And may the Goddess provide strength and comfort to the loved ones he left behind. ?
