Happy Birthday Scott. Thinking of you on your birthday . It’s thanksgiving and my son Michael and I were talking about you. Sharing stories of you and the places we went together. Michael remembers so much about you . He remember things I forgot about . It was so nice to talk about you . You were such a positive influence on his life . I wish you could see how good of a person he turned out to be.
I miss your infectious laugh.. I remember your eyes and how they would squint down when you laughed really hard . Even though I know your gone you are not forgotten .
