My heart is broken. I met Scott in 2007 when I came to work at the FVAMC. He took me under his wing. When I worked evenings and all other clinics on the floor were closed Scott would come up check on me because I was on the floor alone. He always greeted me with a smile and a “hey love”. Scott taught me many things. The most valuable lesson being the importance of freeing yourself through forgiving others. Love you my friend. Rest well.

To the Family of Mr. Scott,

On February 4, 2019, I opened a staff announcement. It had the most saddening message on it.

I have expressed my feelings, emotions, and gratitude to Scott, and would like the family to know what a beautiful, caring, and awesome soul he was.

I met Scott in 2009, when I walked into the medical office after a head-on collision. The doctor was booked and made me set and wait for 8 hours before I could be seen.

That entire day, Scott kept checking on me. Went out of his way to make me as comfortable as he could, and even bought lunch to me. At the time he was working in an administrative capacity, and his actions were outside of his scope of duty when he did that.

I hold Scott in the utmost highest regards and now above all in Heaven. I loved the person you were, and the spirit you are! It will be very difficult missing your smile in passing. You will be dearly missed.

Scott and I worked on the 3C Med/Surgical in 2005, and many times through the years at the VA. He was always my go to person for help. He was always, warm, kind and just a nice person. When he would see me in the hall he would smile and say, "Hello, love." He always made me feel that the our conversations were important. He was a great listener, a great coworker and a great friend. He always talked about how much he loved Matthew and Michelle and La Ruth. We shared a lot of laughs and some great conversations. He will be missed by a lot of people. I pray for the family that you find comfort in your time of loss.

Scott,
He was such a sweet person. Always willing to help when needed. Always thought about me when he would see something purple and bring it to me. He will be missed dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

My dear friend, I will miss you so much. One of the first memories I have of your wonderful kind self was at the VA where we worked together. I hadn't been there long and I had a horrible migraine. You felt so bad for me, you searched the hospital till you found me a ginger ale and saltine crackers! After that, anytime I didnt feel well, you'd get me a ginger ale and saltines. You were a great friend and we shared a lot. A piece of my heart is broken. I love you my friend and I will always remember you and your kindness. It's not good bye, I will see you again in the presence of our Lord and Savior!
