    Offering my sincere condolences to Scott’s loved ones. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. Scott and I met as freshmen at Mankato State and very quickly developed a friendship. Our dorms had a roller skating rink in the basement and many happy hours were spent there, with a lot of laughter shared. I had grown up near Graceville, MN and so very often got rides back home from college with Scott on weekends and for holiday breaks. The long drives offered plenty of time for great conversation. The one thing I will always remember about Scott is the ever present smile in his eyes, and I see it still in the photo you have posted here. In this life, some people share our space and time briefly, but always stay with us in heart and mind – this is Scott for me. Wishing you peace and some measure of comfort in this very difficult time.

    I was a co-worker of Scott’s. Last year, my wife died of cancer. I know Scott is in a better place now. It will be a tough journey, but I know your family will get through this.

    I am sorry to hear of Scott’s passing at such a young age. I remember Scott from high school as we graduated together. My thoughts and prayers to the family.

    I am sad to hear about Scott. He was a neighbor and good teenage friend. What I remember most is our getting together with Gordy and also being in guitar group at Trinity Lutheran Church in Ortonvelle. (He was also a great partner in dancing!) He has a place saved in my heart. I am glad that he is now in a perfect place, and I can’t wait until we are all together in Heaven.
