    Lori and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I never really got to know Scott as an adult but I remember that he was a sweet, loving child. I will really miss him on Facebook he always brightened my day with all the beautiful pictures of August you could really tell he was a great father. I also enjoyed all the pictures of his wonderful meals he had prepared. Love to all of you. ♥️
