  1. I remember Scott fondly from our high school days. We always exchanged kind words, and many barbs, and laughed alot. I do remember that we traveled with different circles of friends, but never lost our connection with each other.

    It’s very sad that time and distance severs the chance to trade a casual barb or friendly hello, but it does. I will remember Scott and my other fallen classmates. I wish you peace old friend.

  2. Thoughts and prayers are with you Jill. It has been a hard journey. Scott has fought the good fight. God bless you and family.
