Carol Scutt has documented the love of her life in a book entitled book “Lost Without Him.”
Scutt, a 69-year-old widow living on Norris Lake, wanted to give her family a record of the love story that existed between she and her husband, Paul.
She is a mother of two and a and grandmother of six.
Paul Scutt made a vow to Carol Scutt, in the first year of their marriage, that he would see that she had everything she ever dreamed or imagined. He kept that vow even on the last day of his life.
In the summer of 1967, two teenagers from opposite worlds, met in Columbia City, Indiana. The book tells their story as they fell in love and survived heartache and loss but went from poverty to affluence through hard work, devotion to each other and their love of God.
“Our journey was not without struggles. There was a time when we nearly divorced but did not,” Scutt said. “This is an inspirational story for everyone who desires a true, loving relationship with both God and their spouse. It will remind them that God will always be faithful.”
In the book, Scutt wrote, it was so emotional and heartbreaking for me, “the reality of seeing his name carved in stone nearly broke me. I knew he was not there, and I was so grateful to God for that. Yet, knowing that the body of the man I loved more than life was there hit me like a ton of bricks.”
Carol Scutt went as far as to print and laminate a sign that reads: “With Paul to his grave went my heart.” She placed them on the stone.
