    The thing I will remember most about Scott, is his fun personality and love for his children. He would always make us laugh as kids, even down to his impersonations from Toy Story! My heart goes out to the family, as I know he will be missed dearly.

  3. We are so sorry to hear of Scott's illness and his passing. Sending our deepest sympathy, thoughts, and prayers to all of you.
