So sorry for your loss. Remember that God never intended for us to die. But he has made loving arrangements to reunite us with our loved ones. John 5:28-29 says: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. For more scriptural comfort, visit JW.org.

I know words do no justice. Scott was one of my close friends. I have a lot of great memories with him. I worked with Scott at Pizza Hut and at PTI. He found it rather funny that he trained me at Pizza Hut and I was his trainer for PTI. I only recently met his mom and I know Scott talked about me a lot. I know I'm not family but Scott made me feel as if I was. I say this all with a very heavy heart and mind, I know the loss of a child and I can't put enough emotion into words for how he will be missed. Scott and I had plans too go fishing in a few weeks. I will keep those plans and throw one in just for him light up a smoke as I know he did and sit back for a minute. As our favorite joke at work" beam me up Scotty!"

Back in the good old days on the Muddy!
Scott was an incredible person and even better friend. We did so many cool things together and logged probably well over a thousand hours fishing side by side! Many of my best life experiences were spent with this amazing person and I'll never forget and I know many others wont either!
