Veronica and all of Scott's family, Thinking of you and praying for peace in your hearts as you cope with your loss.
Veronica, Dennis and my prayers go out to you and your family at this time..
I use to babysit Lori and Scott. Lori was always so sweet and kind, but Scott, he bucked me with everything. Eating his supper, taking a bath, going to bed, just sort of naughty and he definitely made me earn my babysitting money, LOL. That said, Scott grew into a fine young man who loved to race and loved his family dearly. My sincerest sympathy to you all and I am sending you all love and prayers. May God hold you near in your time of sorrow and may you all find peace. Rest in peace Scotty, your journey is now complete.
My sympathy to Scott's family and friends.
