Scott McDaniel was one of the nicest people I was ever blessed to know. The day Scott, Tina and the girls moved in next door to us was one of the best moments of our life. It wasn't just a family moving in, it was a friendship. Their whole family treated my wife and I like part of their family. They were always there to help, and share great conversation. They helped us welcome our son into the world, with their love, kindness, and support. Scott was always there to help. He helped me mow my yard, let me borrow his weed eater, offered advice on things I was trying to do, and share conversations that I will never forget. Whencame time for us to move to Knoxville, he was there to help. The hardest thing for us when we moved was having to leave Scott and Tina. My family and I are so sad at their loss, but we all know that he was a GREAT man and he is now enjoying the wonderment of Heaven. Our job now is to live the best life we can so that we can enjoy Scotts company again one day.
