Birth: Apr. 15, 1983
Death: Jul. 17, 1996

They had planned it for a year, a trip that would take their two families to Paris for shopping, for hiking and for practicing the French language they were learning.

The tragedy that followed was, according to one resident of their hometown of Stevenson, Ala., the worst thing that happened in this town.

Michael and Barbara Scott and their 13-year-old son, Joseph, the teenager's best friend, Thomas Weatherby, and Thomas' mom, Brenda Privette, were all aboard TWA Flight 800.

Michael Scott, 44, who liked to travel and experience the outdoors, had physics and engineering degrees and worked at the Arnold Engineering Development Center, an Air Force facility near Tullahoma, Tenn. Barbara Scott, 39, was a registered nurse who worked the night shift at the town's North Jackson Hospital.

Privette, 46, had worked for a nearby fabrics company.

The Scotts were leaders of the Boy Scout group based at their church, Cumberland Presbyterian, and Privette chaperoned some troop events.

According to Michael Scott's cousin, Jane Tipton, the father and son often hiked together, and had traveled to Peru and throughout the western United States.

A prayer vigil for the five victims was held Thursday night at the North Jackson High School, bringing out more than 300 people.

Michael Scott's mother, Clara Scott, had lost her whole family. 3Her life was wrapped up in theirs, and now she's alone.

They had a very busy, meaningful life. In a society where so many kids are on their own, it's tragic to lose a family of that caliber
