I just found out about Scott, so sorry Mary Jane. I still think about my two grandsons Bryan and Chris and Scott and Chase at your house.

I met Scott at a young age on the soccer field. He was a great friend and a tremendous soccer player....I actually enjoyed watching the 1/100 that could actually get by Scott because I knew, if you got by Scott....you were going to see him again real soon! Whether it was a legal slide tackle or a behind the legs take out...he was coming for you! Ill never forget the sleep over we had at the house and me shattering his basement door window....Scott refused to tell his dad and made me do it haha...I still love him to this day for that, I would have done the same! The memories I have with Scott I will always cherish. He was a great man, and he is going to be truly missed by all his friends and family. The photo below (myself, Scott, Brian Weiss) I believe is from field day at Jacksonville elementary where we always fought for 2nd place in the sprint race because 1st place ALWAYS belonged to Scott Franklin.

I never had a brother and always considered Scott my brother. I felt we had a special connection and I wish we could have had more time. Scott, my girls loved you especially Kyler, she loved playing with her Uncle Scotty. I am so happy you are Charlottes godfather that was a beautiful day. The world will never be the same. I miss your voice, your smile, and when you make Peanut stand on two legs and be silly. You were a good soul I hope you know that. Our family is devastated but will stay strong with the positive memories.

Please know Mary Jane, Chase and Amber, we are praying for you during this difficult time. Being very first neighbors and good friends, we have such beautiful memories! The boys and their “flashlight tag” (almost every night in the summer ) was such a favorite! Our vacations in Myrtle Beach were so special because we were all together at Deer Track, the Conch and the Pavilion. Such loving times being together. Hold those delightful memories in your hearts, and may God bless you all!

I grew up next to Scott and vacationed with the Franklins for years. I’ll never forget playing Marco-Pollo, pool games and trying to catch turtle and fish in the ponds. We would take our shoes off and wade into the pond. Looking back that wasn’t the wisest thing to do in South Carolina. I am so sorry this has happened and will always remember Scott.

SUMMARY OF SPEECH FOR SCOTT’S FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES:

* Opening / Introduction:


o I would like to begin by thanking all of you for coming out to celebrate my brother’s life with us this weekend as well as thank the countless number of friends & family members that have reached out & provided support to our family since my brother’s passing. From the bottom of my heart, I can’t say thank you enough. I know my brother is watching us now and I bet he can’t help but to be blown away by how much he was still loved & be missed by all of us.


* Early Life / Growing Up:


o To adequately describe my brother’s life and capture the true essence of his spirit, I will need to start at the beginning and talk about the things that made him the Scottie we all know and loved.


o Like the rest of us in my family, he was instilled with a wild sense of adventure which was driven by the customary Franklin Family strong will, passion, & fire. Being his older brother, I can confirm that I tested that strong will over and over and over again; but my brother was a Franklin through and through and that was undeniable.


o Growing up, we were both heavily involved and loved playing soccer with our best friends and life-long brothers. Although my brother was always a very quiet and shy kid at first, that Franklin Fire was never more evident than when he was out there battling and fighting for position on defense on the soccer field. He loved it and always looked forward to taking on the other team’s best offensive players and shutting them down all game. Not only did playing Soccer give my brother so much joy, but that’s also where he met many of his best friends to this day.


o Being part Franklin & part Locke, he was also blessed with 2 sets of DANCING Gene’s and continued our long line of movers & shakers in the Dancing Franklin Clan. From the early days of Dancing to Chuck Berry in Grandma & Pop Pop’s living room to his love for music, live shows, and festivals; my brother absolutely loved to dance & have fun to his favorite tunes with his favorite people.

* Every time I saw him, we would always want to show me the new songs he found or want to share what he was listening too. His passion for music was a driving force in his life and something he thoroughly enjoyed & loved to share.


* Soccer, High School, & Friends:


o Even though I wouldn’t describe my brother as a social butterfly, he had an incredibly tight-knit group of friends growing up and he deeply cherished those relationships. From the days of playing SmashBros, FIFA, & other video games all night, to the Pirate Parties & late nights in my parents’ basement; being friends with you guys gave my brother a place to be himself & to be accepted and if he were here right now I know he would thank you all for some of the greatest days & nights a person could ever ask for.


o Scottie also loved to spend time with family and during a cross country road-trip with friends & my cousin Steven, my brother was introduced to his 1st Colorado skyline over the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver and he fell in love with it instantly. He moved out there with friends and spent the next 3 years exploring & enjoying the beautiful mid-west prior to deciding to come back east. In the weeks leading up to my brothers passing, he registered for classes this upcoming fall semester back in Colorado and was in the process of planning his move back there to finish the final few semesters of his Bachelor’s Degree and was working with my Mom on finalizing his new lease & living arrangements. Even though he won’t be given a chance to see that dream through, we know that Colorado was his home away from home and that he loved the time he spent out there with Torie, his 1st Puggle Porkchop, and all the new friends he met through his “Friends of Red Rocks” group that he joined and was heavily involved during that time.







* Family, Mom, and his Puggles:


o Our parent’s home has always been a special place for Scott & I cause it was built on the Foundation of our parents’ love and was our safe place where they not only made us feel accepted & loved in every way possible; but they extended their open arms to all of our friends over the years turning friends into family. When I’ve looked out into the room over the course of this weekend, I can picture many of you swinging through our parents home on a Friday or Saturday Night to visit either Scott or I; and there’s our Dad on his favorite couch & our Mom in the kitchen and that’s when you would hear “Yooooo LarBear, Yooooo MJ, What’s Uppppppppp!!!” which would then be followed by my favorite sound in the world to this day, my Dad’s Classic Laugh aka “THE LAUGH” which would set off a chain reaction & have us all cracking-up. And besides the occasional stealth operation which involved sneaking 30 packs across the backyard to our basement which wasn’t fooling anybody, all of you would always take the time to file into the family room to talk to our parents for awhile before heading to the basement or before we would head out for the night. They loved it, we all loved it, and it’s just one example of how blessed we were to have parents like ours & friends like all of you; and that’s the main message I think Scott would want to convey if he were here today.


o For the past 3 Years and what we know now was the twilight of my brother’s life, Scott lived with our Mom and his snorting but incredibly loving dog “Peanut the Puggle” in the our childhood home which our parents’ built together over 25 years ago now. Peanut was what my brother called his “Emotional Support Animal” as he loved to cuddle, kiss, and generally lavish Peanut with tons of love and affection. All week, Peanut has been sneaking into my brother’s room to find dirty laundry that still has Scott’s smell on it and then brings it into my Mom’s room to chew & sleep-on every night. Peanut is going to miss his Daddy, but has stepped up and taken on the role as Emotional Support Animal for our Mom aka Grandma and I know he would be happy that they have each other.


o Scott and my Mom have always had a special bond & connection and I know they both will forever be grateful for all the time they were able to spend with each other while living together prior to his passing. Even though Scott struggled with expressing his emotions to those he truly loved, my Mom is the one person where his love for her could not be contained because I would hear my brother tell my Mom he loved her all the time and he openly talked to me and his friends & family about how much he loved & felt loved by our Mom & Dad. As a Father of 2 young girls, there is no better feeling than the love received from a child and is something you pray lasts forever; well Mom & Dad you did it because your son loved you his entire life and would have told the world if he could have.


o Although his passing at the age of 32 was incredibly sudden & tragic, I think the silver lining is that he lived 32 Years on this earth with people that truly loved him and that filled his life with so much happiness, so much support, so much unconditional love throughout the course of his life (no matter the twists & turns); that I know he is watching us right now and he is incredibly thankful for the time he had on this earth with all of you and I think he would want you to know & never forget that. In closing, I would like to read two quotes that spoke to me while thinking about Scott’s life over the course of the week and while drafting what I’ve said here today:


* “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and beloved” – George Sand, Author


* “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard” – A.A. Mine, Author (Winnie the Pooh)

I know that my brother loved & was beloved by so many people in his life AND this is the hardest goodbye I’ve ever had to say in my life filled with great people so even though it’s incredibly painful; I will forever feel lucky for the time we had together and for being such a huge part of each other’s lives. Your memory will live on forever through me and the stories passed along to your nieces about their beloved Uncle Scottie. Rest easy baby brother; give Dad a huge for me and I’ll see you both when I see you on the other side.
