W. M. "Booger" scales was a wonderful father who emphasized values ranging from loyalty and generosity to the immediate payment of gambling debts. He differentiated between one's being a minimum or a maximum citizen, and couldn't believe one of his children was actually paid for raising money for community projects. We three children and our mother have fabulous memories of his antics but remember most his steadfast love of us.
