Having a hard time sleeping once again . I think about you often . My heart is filled with sadness tonight as I miss you . I miss you everyday Scott . I often find myself remembering something you said or did and it brings happiness to my heart. I hold onto those memories and try to replace the sadness I feel inside . I see you as often as I can . I hope you can hear my words I try not to cry but I miss you . What I wouldn’t give to hear you laugh one more time .
