Scot was a true gentle soul. He treated everyone with kindness . I will miss our chats at work. I went to school with Scot and he was always a good and caring guy. My prayers to his family in this time of loss, but know Scot is in heaven and has no earthly pain.

So sorry to hear of Scot's passing. I went all the way through school with him and his Mother was my 6th grade teacher. It was always nice to see his smiling face at our class reunions. What a sweet soul he was!

We are surely sorry to learn of Scot's passing away. We'd been remembering him in our prayers. We can trust the LORD to keep His promises to Scot, and for you, too. He will bring your comfort in these days of sorrow, and will provide strength and courage for finding ways to live out the days until you see Scot, again. We will remember you, too, that you will be encouraged to know Scot is in Heaven, rejoicing in his redemption and ever lasting life. Rest in Peace, Scot.

When Jordan was about 3 he would tell across the road where I lived, Hi Becky, in a certain way when I got home from work. Scot started doing it also. We always greeted each other hi or good bye, Scot or Becky depending on who was saying it. One time I was driving through town and I heard, Hi Becky in our special song like way we did it real loud . that was the first time Scot started doing it. He was the most honest, caring, fun,God loving I have ever met and I feel very blessed to have had him as a friend in my life. Bye Scotie RIP friend.
