Scott you are so loved and missed by so many it even amazes us. Today the eve of your third EOW anniversary was amazing for your son. It was a reminder of a wrestling match you had against Central. Very similar in style and importance. Yes, we saw you so telling you nothing new. Also, please know that Dawn has done a great job in organizing a blood drive together with a NJ Sharing Network sign up in your honor. It is designed to carry forward to others your caring and sharing. Love you so much Dad & Mom
