Bottomley's Bench

For those who don't know me, I'm Mel. Scott and I spent a lot of time in life together. We have been friends through it all for 15 years. He passed away on September 24th 2016. His mother, Judy, had a beautiful memorial bench placed in Stony Creek off the trolley trail. Yesterday someone, we don't know who or how, broke this monument that was placed in his honor. I'm starting this GoFundMe to help with the cost of repairs or replacement, which ever has to happen.
