Couldn’t believe when I found this site and saw Scott’s face on it. It touched me to see all the lovely tributes. Scott was my first boyfriend. My first everything. We were just kids. He used to write cute notes on a classroom desk so I’d see them when I had a class after him. He sent me letters at summer camp that were so expressive and passionate for a kid his age— they got me in trouble with my mom when she discovered them! Our song was Andy Gibbs’s “ I Just Want to Be Your Everything“. I know he must have be a great officer and I can just imagine his awesome partnership with Baron. We were devastated when we learned of his tragic death. You never ever forget your first love. Your first everything.
