Scott always said that he would be your sunshine and storms,
dirt under your nails and straw in your boots.
early mornings, late nights and long days.
Your joy, beauty and peace.
Your faith, determination and accomplishment.
Your fears, tears, laughter and love.
It was his way of life, a sense of pride, a family affair.
He’s home and there is no place he would rather be. Celebrate life!
He wouldn’t want you to mourn, he wants you to keep the great memories and keep your train moving.
