My heart is heavy at the knowledge of Mr. Scott's passing. He was by far my favorite patient in my 2 years so far at the Roosevelt Institute, and anyone who works with us here knows he had my heart. Working in healthcare certain patient's have a different effect on you than others. I left his room many nights crying after having "church" with him. Anyone with eyes could see that this was a man of God. And though I know he's in a better place and no longer suffering it still saddens me knowing that this world has lost such an amazing man. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Uncle Larry,
I remember you as the man to watch out for LOL. You always treated me just like one of your own, If I did bad you got on to me and advised me that better not happen again and when I did good you always told me how good of a job I had done and to keep it up!
I thank you for being a wonderful part of my life! I love you and will miss you for the rest of my days!
Love Always
