I worked with Scott at PRMI for several years. He was among the kindest, brightest and most caring men I've ever known. He will be greatly missed. My prayers go out to you and your family. May God give you grace, comfort and strength in the difficult times ahead.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you Linda and your family and my dear cousin Carolyn. Scott was one of the kindest men I knew, even as a kid we always wanted to hang around him and he never once thought we were too young to play with. He will be sorely missed. May God grant you and your families comfort and peace at this time of sorrow. Turn to Him often. You are in our prayers. Much love, cousin Laura Lee (Pevestorf)Ramirez.

Linda, my thoughts are with you and your kids. I'm sorry I can't attend the funeral but Dave had a stroke last April. I have him at home and don't venture gone for too long at a time. You have been a true inspiration to me and I have thought of you frequently this last year. We all know Scott is in a loving place and may you have comfort in the promises of our Lord.
