Scott,

I will miss you man. You were the brother I never had, and you will always have a place in my heart. To your family, my deepest apologies for this death go to you. I loved Scott as a part of my family, and my family adopted him into us. There's so much I want to say that I just can not find the words for. They say you were a hero, and I agree. Not only were you a hero for defending the freedom of this country, but you were a hero for accepting the lost soliders like me into your life. You were outgoing, understanding, and an amazing person with your attitude to life. I will never forget you brother, safe trails.
