This poem was written by: Grandma Bev Scott
Brother Kelly, when he prayed first,
thanked the Father for each Scott
and the blessings that this family
to the Second Ward had brought.
Brother Kelson reminisced some,
telling of pool incident
when he launched young Brady skyward.
Up he went!
Kelson fretted, Brady begged more.
“He can take it,” Bryan said.
Brady’s all heart, he can take it.”
That thought was this topic’s thread.
“God looks not on man’s appearance.
No, He looks upon the heart.
Brady’s heart, no doubt, will help him
do his best, do well his part.”
Chapel’s full to overflowing.
(Brady’s loved by many folks.)
When he stood, he was impressive
(starting with the best of jokes!)
His first thought was on obedience.
“It’s the armor you will wear.”
Next he talked about forgiveness.
“Imperative, if you do care!
Forgive all men, as Jesus taught us.
(By example we know how.)
On the cross, He said “Forgive them.”
(If it’s needed, do it now!)
It was love, the final topic,
that was touching, that was sweet.
“All my life’s I’ve been surrounded
by pure love that’s been complete.”
He made mention of a good friend,
then paid tribute to his mom.
“At her home, my friends were welcome….
didn’t matter where they’re from.”
“How I love my older sister.
even though we bicker some.
I’m so glad she’s here with roommates.
(Down from Logan they had come.)
“Dad has been superb example
in all aspects of my life.
So has Nicki who accepts me.”
(He is loved by father’s wife.)
In conclusion, Brady talked of
Gratitude for good, great friends
and for Joseph Smith’s example.
“The Church is true!”
With that, he ends.
Back at home, a celebration!
Long, white tent set in backyard.
Tables laden with a real feast.
Enjoying it will not be hard!
Neighbors, friends, and lots of cousins,
aunts and uncles by the score:
Valantines, Sandbergs, and Utleys,
Taylors, Allens, Batemans, more.
Grandma Joanne’s in the kitchen,
serving up delicious things.
Grandma Bev is watching Gavin
on the tramp, with jumps and springs.
More and more guests keep arriving.
Were five thousand fed this day?
It was awesome to behold it.
Miracles, I think, hold sway!
Yes, this time will be remembered.
Good things happened in Midway.
Then, that evening’s there’s an eclipse.
(Doesn’t happen every day!)
Brady, hold these happy memories.
Truly , many love you so.
You’ll be awesome with your big heart.
Work, pray, fast, and
