May Scott rest in peace. What Scott did for Abbey Scott when all of her pumpkins was stolen will never be forgotten. Abbey has been a friend of our family for a number of years. Everytime I watch the video of Scott receiving the card from Abbey and her family it brings a tear to my eyes. Needless to say we were totally schocked to hear of Scott's passing.
God bless your family.

To Angie and the rest of the family, Scott is an inspiration to all who met him. His dedication to his country and his love for his family are surpassed by none. The world has lost a great man, but Heaven has gained an angel. Please accept my deepest condolences. - Tina Katzenburger

Scott was my war buddy the middle east. The picture of him pointing at how hot it was in Kuwait was taken by me. Scott had poured ice water onto it because the temperature was showing -10 degrees F. It was 140, but the American gauge only went to 120. It was going back around. The heat must of been getting to him because he did the ice water thing thinking people may think that it is cold. To know Scott is to like him in any situation.

Scott and Angela came into Ron's and my life when Scott came home from Iraq, They impacted our lives so much we felt like we had known them for many years rather that a few short years. The love we have for the Snyder Family is etched in our hearts forever. Angela and family, WE love you all and continue our prayers and love for you forever! God Bless each one of you and may God Hold you tight in his strong hands.
