I will really miss Scott, he was such a great person, nephew, and friend. I know all of the family will miss him because he always had a smile and kind words for us all. Scott worked with me for about three years before he went on to his career as an engineer and some of those people still ask about him after all these years later, which goes to show what a great guy he was. Goodbye for now Scott, I'll see you on down the line.
