Scott was the embodiment of hard work from the word GO. Like his father before him, he made his living the old fashioned way. He would get up at 5:30 am every morning, and put in an honest day of work. I heard Scott once say, "I don't believe in luck. I do believe that the harder you work, the luckier you will be."

You are in a better place now. Well done thou good and faithful servant!
