I was so sad to hear about Scott's passing. Scott was one of my teachers at USC, and I never had any idea during the semester that I spent as his student that Scott was battling such a serious illness. He was incredibly helpful, energetic, and responsive, both in class and outside, as generous with his time as with his advice and insight. I'm so grateful for all of his help and encouragement, and for everything he taught me, and I wish I had had more of a chance to tell him so. To Scott's family, I'm so sorry for your loss. My father also passed away very early from a tragic illness, so I know that there are not many words of consolation that others can offer to you. But I hope you will find some comfort in knowing that your father leaves a legacy of humor and creativity alive in all of his students. I know each of us will always remember him fondly and be grateful for what he taught us.
