The McCauley Family

Scout Reese McCauley was as brave as a lion, a special girl with a huge heart, a girl that lived with a rare condition called  Loeys-Dietz Syndrome that affects connective tissue throughout her body. Scout faced her first surgery when she was a month old and had two more before her second birthday. Countless hospitalizations, surgeries and doctor appointments, Scout and her family have been strong and lived life to the fullest.

Scout left this earth suddenly on January 5, 2019 after a life full of love for family and friends. In just 9 short years, Scout left a significant impact on all of the lives she touched. All those that knew her, loved her and could all tell special stories of time spent with her.

In her own words just days before she would take her last breath...

"Thy year is passing from mine eyes. We’ve had thy sadness, anger, disgust, fear, and joy and surprises. This year was good, it really was. But now comes something new, something beautiful, something grand, something great. Sometimes you have to let go of the past so you may have a future.

Farewell 2018
Welcome 2019"

-Scout R. McCauley
