Heartland probably wasn't Scott's pride and joy. He was roommate for almost 2 years. From what he told me his wife and child were his new joy. Not his past. I loved him like a brother and always will. Know matter what conversation he was a straight shooter, always spoke his mind and was a 100% awesome person to know and call family. My heart sank and skipped multiple beats when I heard he passed. I knew him at the most personal level, and he was a Christian man. I have to think he found his way to his final home, if anyone knows what it is to be saved, he knew. Scott was one of the best people I have ever known and together we had a wonderful and amazing ride in the middle of nowhere Missouri. We both became better people and better men in this world. The sorrow I feel cannot be seen or expressed, though I will remember him forever. He and his family are in my prayers and thoughts and I will pray that only good things are to come for them. I will never forget the years we shared and the brotherhood we shared. I love you man, I will never forget you!
