  4. Dear Paula, I want to express my sorrow for your loss. We, the Scroggins ( Wade, Mike, Sandy, Corona Prosthetics and myself), all loved, respected and admired Duilio Not only as a gentle and genuinely, caring Dentist, but as a person. In his obituary, it says that he treated his patients as friends. This is so true. He was a friend from the moment he met you. I will cherish his memory. I also want to say that he was lucky in love. Because the day he met you, was a gift from god. You have been a blessing of love to him, his business and his life. I am thankful to have known you both. I hope that you can find comfort in this knowledge and smile when you think of his wonderful sense of humor.
    Sincerely, Joyce Scroggins

  10. Dearest Paula,
    I’ve already told you how sorry I am, but I want to try and put it writing. Dullio was a wonderful, loving person. I will always remember the good times we had together with my Dad and Larry, and when you were here at the house a short three months ago. So sweet and kind of him to even bring Gabbi and Gia doggie cookies!! He loved you so much just as you loved him. He’ll always be with you. You know I gave him my word to be there for you and I always will. I love you!
