  5. Tears are rolling down my cheeks as I write this with sorrow and disbelief. Scott was like a second son and has been a part of our family for most of his life. He will be truly missed by many whose lives he touch with wit, knowledge and occasional sarcasm. No more Christmas eve visits and out of the blue phone calls. My heart breaks for all his family and friends who he loved dearly. I have been praying for him and his family and friends that he is with our dear lord now and will be praying for all of us until we meet again. All my love & sympathy, Carolyn Kelly

  6. To Scott’s family and loved ones: I was grateful to know Scott during our middle and high school years and to catch up with him in recent years. All of my memories of my time with him include copious amounts of laughter – he was a true treasure. May you all feel peace during this time of loss, and may you smile every time he enters your memory.
