PaT, Scott & Jennifer. There are no words to take away the hurt. Possibly you may find some solace in this passage by Joshua Loth Liebman. I've known Scott for more than five decades. He will be missed. Please accept my condolences. "I often feel that Death is not the enemy of life, but it's friend for it is the knowledge that our years are limited which makes them so precious.....The day that we are privileged to spend in the great park of life is not the same for all human beings, but there is enough beauty, joy and gaiety in the hours if one will but treasure them. Then for each one of us the moment comes when the great nurse, Death, takes man, the Child, by the hand and quietly says 'It is time to go home. Night is coming. It is your bedtime, Child of earth. Come, you're tired. Lie down at last in the quiet nursery of nature and sleep. Sleep well. The day is gone. Stars shine in the canopy of eternity.' " Sleep well my friend.

Pat, May God wrap his arms around you and your family and hold you tight during this difficult time. We will never forget the trip to Florida and Texas, the backyard swim parties and bbqs, Scott rail dancing at Maxes listing to the Caddilacs, and my favorite, cooking like 10 lbs of wings at my house with beers and frys and then pushing the kitchen table back and dancing all night. Memories we hold deep in our hearts. R.I.P. my friend.
