Dearest Ann, Tony, Rosa, and Teresa,

Pretty much at a loss of words. So many feelings that I wish to convey to bring some sort of comfort. Josie was truly a one-of-a-kind, such a bright light who loved me like a brother; as you all have. The world lost one of the good ones who will be sadly missed. Through the sadness, I have only wonderful memories of Josie and who could ever forget that incredible laugh of her’s. Sorry to be so far away, but with you all in spirit. So very, very sorry…will be in touch…Love you all, Scott and Demet

I will miss you my sweet friend. I will miss our talks, I will miss making you laugh, and I will miss ‘flirting’ with you. You always had a way of putting things into the right perspective, and you taught me more about life than you could ever know. You also taught me so much about how to truly interact with women and opened my eyes to my own shortcomings, helping me be a better man in the process.
