If I were pinned downed to the most notable good time with Scott it would be his party the night of Neil Armstrong taking that first step on the moon back in the summer of 1969. That night was so much fun that I even forgot to go home and woke up the next day in this Upper Dublin home's backyard recliner.

Thanks Scott for the many good times and memories.

Dear Janelle and family,

I never met your dad, or mom, but two of their many gifts were their daughters and grandson. Knowing Janelle, tells me that they must have been wonderful people. Good comes from good.

My heart truly aches for you. Such huge losses in a very short time. May love and memories cradle you through this difficult time.
