Mowing the lawn meant so much

The late Scott Gummerson was an architect. When he died from acute myeloid leukemia in 2015, his neighbors tied orange ribbons in his honor on trees in front of the Flossmoor houses he designed or helped add on to.The outpouring of support during the two years Scott was sick didn’t only come from close friends and family, said his wife, Gigi Gummerson. Comfort food and small kindnesses came from neighbors all around town.
