We are so sorry for your loss. I know Scott is in a better place now but it’s hard on those of us left to carry on without him. Scott was loved by everyone who knew him. I have been thinking about Scott a lot and was looking forward to being able to see him again. Now that time will have to be in heaven when we all meet again.
All our love to the family, Kerry and Cynthia Riggs.
