This is Kat's Aunt Judi again just praying for the peace she seeks for all of us.
Tonight was the senior awards ceremony, and you were very dearly missed, Scotty. But you have left an awesome legacy.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned...
I can no longer look for answers; the search is a futile one. I can look only for peace.
I remember sitting in the auditorium with everyone and wasn't sure why the seniors had worried looks on their faces or why some of them were crying until I met up with my sister afterwards. I just want you to know that you're not forgotten, and you never will be. We miss you <3
I think about Scott every day. I can't ask questions anymore, but I am reminded of you constantly and I think it's you up there in heaven telling me to "smile like I mean it". You've given me a wonderful perspective on life, thank you. My prayers go out daily for friends and family, a lot of us still have heavy hearts. Love you babe, and you were right, my sister is cooler than me ;-) she loves hearing that story!
2 years, it is so hard to believe Scotty. We are all still missing and always thinking about you. Please watch over all of us and keep us safe. You are truly in a better place. God bless your family and see you again some day! xox
Still missing you Scott. Always.
it's been a year and a half, and it's still hard to think about Scotty... i go to UF ,and every day that i get down, i think that i'm here and he never made it, and it's my motivation to continue doing well, because i know he would be doing well. i miss him so much, and i think about him everyday. mr and mrs goering, my condolences. i'm sorry and know that we all loved him very much and we're up here in gainesville missing him...
My prayers go out to the entire Goering family. I read all about Scott, after speaking with Don today.
What a hansome and fine, fine young man. I am so heartbroken.
My thoughts are with you.
Your beautiful baby, Scott has company with my Bobby.
May God Bless you always and forever until you are reunited with your beautiful Scott.
Father to angel Bobby Resciniti
More than a year later, it is still difficult to write in this guest book. I was there at the funeral, I think the whole school was. Everyone loved him, he was just that amazing. I want the Goering family to know that everyone still thinks about Scott, I think about him everyday. My prayers are still with the Goering family.
This is Judi Migliori Ward just letting you know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers and always will be.
Dear Don and Merrily,
I only found out about two weeks ago that you lost your son last year. Don, Peter, who worked for your folks at the store FOREVER it seems was at The Wine & Cheese Gallery and we were reminising about the old store location and how I knew you guys and then he told me. I don't think any other thought was in my mind for days after the late news I learned. To bear this reality seems so unbearable and I cannot think of any words that I could say that would comfort you all. I will think of you and your children and never forget this bright young star all of you lost. My heart reaches out to you, forever.
Your friend always,
my condolences go out to the Goering family, its taken me a while to sign this guest book because i miss scott so much that just the thought of him being gone hurts so much. I hope that you never forget that God(Jehovah)is almighty and he has the power to allow you to see Scott again, if you only believe in HIS son Jesus Crist.
Hi, Im Dave, I heard about scott, right after basic training, while in Airborne school, I know scott was a good man, a friend to many, not quick to judge. I didn't know him as well as I should have. Im sorry for the loss, and my heart goes out to you. godbless
dear goerring family last week i went to the cemetary and i stopped by scotts grave and i said a few prayers and i talked to him i told him that i was driving down donald ross a couple weeka ago and hoe i saw the cross and i thought of you and him at that time i was upset with my own son about him needing money for college. when isaw the cross it made me realize how lucky i was that i could go see my son in college and i called hin and i quit arguing with him scotts cross made me realize how lucky i was thank you i will stop by scotts grave whenever i go there and say a prayer. god bless you
Dear Goering family, years will pass before the hurt lessens and you begin to understand why these things may have happened, but you will see in time what a powerful force Scott Goering is.
To the Goering Family, Although I only remember Scott as a very young little brother, my heart goes out to you all in this time of grief. I'm so sorry for your loss.
My prayers go out to you during this time of sorrow. May God bring your heart at peace.
I am so sorry for your loss. Scott was such a great guy. I worked with him at Pac Sun last summer and he always made the day go by so much faster because he was so funny and outgoing. He will truly be missed.
I can't even begin to understand your pain, but I think of your family often and pray for you all,and for God to give you the strength to understand your loss..God Bless You All.
may god bless your family through out this time of hurt and sorrow i can honestly say i feel the hurt you feel everyday i lost my fiance in a drive-by shooting in august 2004 and trust me it still hurts to know that i have to raise his only child a daughter without him and she is only 17 months now i was 4 months pregnant then and almost lost her i can say only god will get you all through this time and time does heal a little bit but it will never take the pain away good bless your angel Scott he will forever be by your side through the hardest times in your life and touch you in many other ways.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of your son, Scott. One of my regrets is never having known your son. He has touched our lives more than some people I Do know! What a special young man he is. I visit him often and because of that I feel as if I had known him. He was truly blessed to have had your love. That is why he was such a wonderful young man.. Always in our thoughts, The Stafford family
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
I'M SORRY FOR YOUR LOST OF SCOOT, MY PRAYERS WILL BE WITH YOU GUYS. REMEMBER WHEN U NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO GOD IS THERE FOR U.
We all would like to send you our thoughts and prayers for Scott. We are deeply saddened by your loss and hope that you will always know that we are here for you and your family. God Bless
Dear Goering Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I had lost my father when I was 18. My father died from a heart attack. No one in my family saw this coming. Ever since his loss, I can only remember the good times. I only have excellent memories of my father. I can only hope you have the same of your son.
I lost my best friend and my cousin, Juan Gaspar Martin on May 15, 2005 after prom. When I read about the news about Scott Georing, my heart started crying...and tears came running down my face. I truly understand what his friends and family are going through. May God bless Scott Goering for giving us all the blessing of being with us and entering the realm of God. My condelences go out to his friends and families.
Our prayers are with you all.
Scott was the greatest neighbor and friend anyone could ever ask for. You are in our prayers. And Scott will always be in our hearts.
To the Goerings:
I didn't know Scott except through his uncle, and my friend Chuck Goering's high praises, and through the well-deserved tributes paid by so many who knew and loved him. It's clear he was a very special young man who inspired and uplifted everyone around
him. I can't imagine the sense of loss you must feel. Please accept my deepest condolences.
To The Goering Family,
Scott was a wonderful kid. He is so missed. I don't think I've met anyone nicer than him. You're all in my prayers. I know Scott is happy where he is.
Dear Merrily, Don, Colby and Whitney,
I love you all so much, and will always be there to help and support you in every way I can. Scottie was my favorite, "pulchritudinous", wonderful, funny, loving, courageous, joyful nephew, and I'll always hold him in my heart, smiling.
Merrily and family: I cannot fathom the depth of your sadness and pain. Please know that you all are in my prayers. Love, Susan
Merrily and Family. Scott is in heaven. He is seated at the right hand of the Father. Without a doubt. Without one doubt! In times like these we must all reach for our faith.
October 2005 - our son's college roommate's two sisters (ages 15 and 17) were killed in a car accident in Boston. I have felt the Murphy family's pain each and every minute of each and every day since last October, but, they are getting through this . . . with their deep faith.
May the Lord bless you, keep you, and guide you each and every minute of each and every day in the months to come.
All our love, Barbara Pattillo Lanahan and Family
Colby & Family,
I did not know Scott directly but from speaking with you sometime ago I knew of his free-spirited nature. I have no doubt that his inspiring intelligence will continually impact those who knew him. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family in this most difficult time.
Merrily, Don and family,
My deepest sympathy is extended to you guys for your painful loss. I remember Scott from working around your home and he is an amazing kid. My condolences.
I am a mother of a wonderful 5 year old son...The sun rises and sets in his eyes...Please accept my deepest condolences. I can't imagine what you are going through. I am a gratuate from JHS and this really hits home. Please know all of you who knew Scott are in my thoughts and prayers.
To the Goering Family,
My family is so saddened for your loss. Too many JHS kids have lost their lives in car accidents over the years and I pray that it will come to an end. Scott seemed to be a shining star and I know GOD has special plans for him in heaven. Our girls played softball together with JTAA years ago and I've had the pleasure of seeing you Merrily at the GAP on several occasions in the past. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers during this very sad time. GOD BLESS,
Glenn, Charlyn, Natalie,Bubba and Stephen Salts
To the Goering family,
Scott was in my Statistics class this year and EVERYBODY knew him as the extremely smart kid in class. He would always eat his entire lunch in class, he was really funny. This incident has strongly affected me, and my family prays for you every night.
Mr. amd Mrs. Goering,
Growing up, Scott was like my own little brother. I am so sad that I can not be there with you all. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers constantly. My family is here for whatever we can do. I love you guys.
Colby, I am here for anything you need. I love you.
Merrily and Don,
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot fathom the depth of your pain. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathies.
To Goering Family-
I'm so sorry about Scott. He was such a good guy. He was sweet, funny, and nice. I would always see him at concerts. I would always visit him at Pac Sun. I deeply miss him.
Dear Don, I can't imagine what the loss of a child is like. I know how proud you were of him as an adolescent and it looks like he had become an outstanding young man. My prayers are with you and your family.
Don,Merrily,Colby and Whitney,
This is Kristi From Virginia. I am so sad that Scott is gone we miss him as well. Remember that he is now with Grandma Goering looking down and watching over us.
Dear Merrily and family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy for your sudden and tragic loss. All the comments about Scott portray such a vital young man. May God's grace give the you peace and strength to endure your grief, and I pray that your anguish will soon give way to fond memories of your precious Scott. Love, Lissa
Its so sad when society loses a young man with so much promise and such a positive influence on the lives of others around him. He accomplished more in 18 years than I have in 41 years. Reading about his success in his life has inspired me to achieve more in mine.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.. I didnt know him but he sounds wounderful.. I know words cant ease the pain.. 2 years ago i lost a best friend of mine in a car accident on seminole pratt.. I pray for you , keep strong, and keep faith.. If God brings you to it, He'll bring you through it... He will never give you more than you can handle.. MY deepest condolences.
Dear, Sweet Colby,
I didn't know your brother but from all I've heard about him, he was a great kid. You may not remember me but I was a manager at Off the Vine when you worked there and I injoyed you and your spirit very much. I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers. With love Bonita Dalessio
To Don and Merrily--I am in Scotland and just got some of the details on Scott's accident. I am so sorry I was not able to be there for his funeral. As a fairly new parent, I can only begin to imagine the pain you have suffered. No one should ever have to go through what you are going through. I know that everyone is praying for you and that some day the pain will become tolerable. You will be in our thoughts and prayers as well.
Dear Goering family
Last week when I read the tragic article
in the Palm Beach Post about the passing
of your son Scott, I cried. You see, I
have a son who is 17, will turn 18 on June 13th. I felt immediately
connected to you and have thought of
you everyday since and cried some more. I try to imagine your pain but
I have to stop myself because its too unbearable.My son is also the youngest with two older sisters probably around the same ages as yours. Mu son is my baby and also the"golden boy" to us and to his sisters. I read about the funeral in both the PB Post
SUN SENTINEL. What a lovely tribute to your son. He will rest in peace.
I will never forget you all and Scott and have prayed daily that God help you get to sleep at night and get up in the morning. I know you will never be the same but I hope in time you will be able to smile again and enjoy some semblance of life.If anything can be positvie about this may it be that Scott's legacy to those of us unknown is that we thank
God for just one more day with our
loved one. God only takes the best
on this earth and at their best and
brightest. I have daily and will keep praying that God helps you through this most terrible of times.
Just know how many people are thinking of you now and will continue to keep you in their prayers. God bless you all,
Sincerely, Corimme Harvey
When I heared the news that your son was killed in a car accident I couldn't belive another family had lost a son at such a young age. My nephew, Parks, was just killed 3 weeks ago in a car accident coming home from a concert in Miami, he was only 20. Our family truely knows the pain you are all feeling at this time. From everyting I have been reading Scott sounds like an amazing guy just like our beloved Parks. I'm sure they have already meet each other in heaven and have became best friends. Again my thought and prayers are with all of you.If you would like to talk or need anything my email is email@example.com.
My deepest sympathy is extended to you all. I am deeply saddened over the tragic death of a boy I did not even know. I live in Abacoa and leave thru Parkside every day. It is a very dangerous turn. The memorial you placed there is beautiful and very touching...it will be a reminder to everyone. May your faith carry you through and may wonderful memories comfort your heart.
Dear Merrily and family,
My name is Donna York and I am Stephen Ciaglia's mother. We met at Stephen's Memorial Service at Jupiter First in late October, 2004.
I am so very sorry that another family has lost a wonderful son. I have read all of Scott's acolades and I know he was a truly wonderful person and son.
In the last week I have thought about you, your family and Scott and I know the pain you all have.
I hope your faith in your God and in your Church helps you all heal in some way.
If you ever need to talk to someone who has shared this tragedy, please do not hesitate to call me.
My phone number is 743-9041.
Again my deepest sympathy to you and your entire family.
ITS ALOT OF PAIN AND CRYING,BUT I KNOW YOU ARE IN A BETTER PLACE LOOKING DOWN A ALL OF US.
I am writing this to say how very deeply saddened I am by Scott's death. I did not know him personally but have heard over and over again what a wonderful, bright and caring young man he was. To have all this acknowledgement of one's life is truly a credit to his parents and family members who helped to mold his life. He was liked by everyone at JHS, teachers, students in every grade and any who happen to have him cross their path. I lost my 18 year old grandson to a freak accident just before he was to graduate also and this has been heavy on my heart. God will comfort you and your family in the times to come and Scott will always be there til you are once again united in heaven.
Marion Bookhout(food service at JHS)
Dear Goering Family, I have not spoke to you since Whitney & Jenni shared so much time together during the Gifted Program years. I can not begin to say how sorry I am for your loss. We lost my stepdaughter 2 years ago when she was 18. The pain is unbearable!I am just so very sorry.
MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALL...IM SURE SCOTT IS LOOKING DOWN UPON YOU ALL AND ONE DAY YOU WILL ALL BE TOGETHER AGAIN...I WILL KEEP U ALL IN MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS...RIP SCOTT
I never knew your son, but was deeply saddened by his sudden death. My heart goes out to you and your family during this sorrowful time. Our prayers are with you.
I’ll miss your hair, I’ll miss your smile, I’ll miss your presence, but most of all, I’ll miss your mind. You have forever changed me and if given the time, would have changed the world.
To the Goering family and friends
I hope that your memories of Scott will no longer bring sorrow but that it may bring you laughter like Scott would always seem to do in times you most needed it. I hope that in time the memories of Scott may bring you comfort and Just know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Remember the good times and Scott may you rest in peace
To the family and friends of Scott, I truely know what you are going through and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I lost my mother to a car accident in Jupiter on March 8th. It speaks volumes about this young man simply by the fact that so many people came to say good bye.
We will seem them again, but until then they will always be watching over us.
Scott was our second son and attached at the hip to Beth, as you know. Beth will take him everywhere she travels all of her life time. We will always keep Scott in our hearts as well. Please call upon us now and forever should you ever need for anything. 1000+ people sitting behind you today feel the same way about Scott. He has truly changed the world in his time walking upon it.
What a sad loss... My condolences. We have lost a great mind. Sad to see a future uf student go so tragically.
best friens of Randy and Diana Biggs
This is all heart breaking to us up here in Kansas
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
To Scott's Family: Nothing we can say here that could ease the sorrows and pain you must feel now. I don't know you or Scott personally, but I join the rest of the crowd in keeping you in thoughts and prayers. Keep the faith, keep the strength. Thrive in the comfort of knowing you have friends and families to help you through all these. Take baby steps to recovery.
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
Don (and family),
We have talked about our children when you stopped by at PGA National and my son also went to Jupiter High and graduated #3 in his class. I was so very sorry to hear about your son and just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you and your family. Take care,
Patti (PGA National)
Dear Don,Merrily,Colby,and Whitney,
When I heard the news about your son I sat down and cried. No parent should ever have to go through such a tradgedy. I know you were a family man, and your son seemed to be such a special person. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
My families thoughts and prayers are with you.
Please accept our most heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your son. May God grant you peace and serenity in knowing that Scott now lives on in a far better place. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Well...I don't know where to start. I hadn't met Scott one time in my life, yet I'm sitting here crying as I type this. Look at the picture right by this post! Look how happy he always was! I saw him here and there in the halls at school always with a smile. To know that he was in the top 10 seniors and was this great of a person it amazed me that God would take him. Why him? They said the good die young, but look at where he was in his life. He didn't even graduate! He didn't even make it to that one awards ceremony before his graduation. I heard that Scott was into psychology. I want to do something with that when I grow up, and whenever I'm down maybe I'll think of all that Scott accomplished to help me get through. My heart goes out to him, his friends, and family. He touched so many lifes...it's incredible! Scott and his family are in my prayers.
Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your son, Scott. I don't know your family, but I also lost my son, Scott. in 1999. I know how painful this is and my heart and prayers are with your family today.
Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. Know that God is with you and your family and you are in our prayers
Dear Don, Merrily, Colby and Whitney,
It is truly hard to believe that
Scott has left us. His amazing spirit has just gone on to do even
greater things. We will always cherish the crazy times he and Geoffrey shared when we were neighbors. How can we forget the time when Scott was only about 7, dreamed up how the boy's could "fly" (off the trampoline) and their many attempts to make those wings! We know that he is gone, but believe he is still flying overhead with his beautiful smile and that his wonderful spirit lives on to make the world a better place. Which is the Scott we all knew and loved. We hope that with time and your many special memories that find comfort and peace in this moment of great loss!
Jaye and Geoffrey Norris (Tequesta)
Don and Merrily,
We were so sorry to hear of the loss of Scott. We didn't get a chance to know your kids, but we love you both dearly. No words can express our deepest sympathy's at this time. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you.
As a mother of who has suffered your loss, and who also has a graduating senior this year from JHS, please know that your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this terribly tragic time. This month marks ten years since losing our son Danny just before school ended in a tragic accident as well, so I know only too well what you are feeling at this time. As difficult as it seems to understand now, time DOES heal, and makes our pain a bit 'softer'. Please know I am willing to help any way I can.
Bobbie (Hobart) Cordova and family
In all your grief, there is the knowledge that you raised a wonderful boy which is such a blessing. My heart goes out to you.
Merrily and Don-
In the week I stayed with you in February several years ago I got a chance to know Scott a little. We’d talk when he came home from school about girls and school and things that were going on with him. He was smart and nice and I enjoyed getting to know him and I still think of that time and how nice you all were to me. I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news. I am so sorry to hear of his death. There are no words I can say to comfort you in any way but I wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you and Scott. Love, Paul
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Our deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.
I didn't know your son ,but I heard of him from my husband (coach Babcock), our prayers are with you and may God embrace all of you with his love. Our children (6 & 5 yr.old)are praying for you and Scott. peace to all of you.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU IN THIS TIME OF GREAT LOSS
Words cannot begin to describe how stunned and saddened we have been ever since hearing of Scott's accident.
Please accept our deepest-deepest sympathy and know that our hearts go out to you.
Words can’t begin to express how saddened we were at the news of Scott’s death. He was such a great kid with so much promise. As the parent of a daughter poised to take her place in the world I can imagine how painful it must be not to have your child’s future, so often wondered about, realized. I hope all of the love that is pouring from those who knew and loved Scott and who know and love you and your family can help to bind the wounds to your hearts at this time. Our love, care, and prayers are with you all.
Dear Don & Merrily,
I was shocked to hear from Sue about the loss of your son, Scott. Words cannot express my deepest sympathy and sorrow for you and your family. May God be with you and your family and may He help you in your time of need.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
We are deply saddened by the loss of such a wonderful person who had such a bright future and very much to contribute to mankind. May Colby and her family find solice in their memories and in their love for one another.
To the Goering Family,
Your story has touched many, may God Bless you and help you through this. And know there is a world of people you have not met that are praying to help your through this.
To my brother Don, my sister-in-law Merrily, my beautiful nieces Colby & Whitney, Betsy and I will remember Scottie with such great love. It was a lovely joy to have known him from the minute we first met him as a sunny and beautiful baby. Seeing him grow up made us laugh w/ pleasure. Thank you for giving us Scott, Merrily & Don. We love you all very much and wish you strength to survive your grief. Love Chuck & Betsy.
My son Mike is a freshman at JHS. He met Scott last summer through his friends Alana, Emily and Hunter. Scott was always so nice to my son and he would say HI to him everyday. We were talking tonight about everything that had happened and making right choices and staying on the the right track and I asked my son, How do you stay on the right track and he told me you need to be like Scott. What an example your son was to all that came in contact with him. He will never know the lives that he touched. We can never understand Gods ways but we have to trust in him. You all are in my thougts and prayers.
Never knew your son, but I also have a Senior graduating next week and just to hear about your tragedy break our hearts so I can imagine what your family is going thru. His accomplishments are a reflection of the kind of family he was fortunate to be part of and his memory and good times as a family will live forever. You are in our prayers. God bless you all.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.
I was not one of the lucky people who had the chance to meet your son but I am terribly sorry for your loss. Your son had truly touched many peoples lives at Jupiter High School. My thoughts and prays are with you.
I'm very sorry to hear of your lost. Our prayers are with you.
The Martin Family
My thoughts and prayers are with the Goering family. I consider Whitney, Scott's sister,my best friend and am saddened to hear the news. I am sorry for your loss. I never met Scott but heard great things of him from his sister. It is unfortunate this took place, the world is missing out on such a positive soul. God Bless.
I am so sorry about your tragic loss. Having a family of my own, I cannot begin to imagine your grief. On behalf of all of us from Mariner Sands I would just like to say that you and your family are in our prayers. God Bless.
Dear Goering Family,
Words cannot express my family's sympathy that goes out to you for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Dear Goering Family,
My heart goes out to you, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful son.I can only hope that you find some sort of peace.
man, i dont even know where to begin. I didn't know Scott very well, but I saw him everday. We sometimes sat together at lunch and we would always joke around and laugh, and mainly just have a good time. He was ALWAYS so happy, he had this twinkle in his eyes, like I've never seen before. And when he smiled, it ran from ear to ear. When I found out that Scott had passed away, i just broke down. He was such an amazing person. And knowing how I feel about Scott leaving us just makes me think how his closer friends must feel. So, all I can say is Rest In Peace Scott Goering, we will all miss you very much!!
Scott is the only person I have ever met that never appeared to have a bad day. He always wore a smile on his face and had unconditional kindness towards everyone he encountered. I will miss him.
Dearest Don, Merilee, Whita and Colby,
I have always referred to "chicken" as "icken", thanks to you Scotty. You will be missed, thank you for the memories and God Bless you all, you are all dearly loved.
I have always referred to "chicken" as "icken", thanks to you Scotty. You will be missed, thank you for the memories and God Bless you and your beautiful family.
Scott was an Outstanding student, his memory will live on forever as he was a great student in every way imaginable. I cannot fathom his greatness. May God be with the Goering Family in this time of grief. God Bless.
To the Goering family from an old neighbor: My deepest condolences go to you. I haven't known Scott in his recent years but have fond memories of him playing in your yard with his bleached blond hair. I looked forward to seeing him when I mowed your lawn.
To the Goering family,
Scott's youthful flame will burn forever. He will never be forgotten by those who knew him.
He will be "forever young". He will watch over you and guide you for all the days of your lives.
Time does not heal all wounds, but please remember, as hard as his departure from this earthly realm hurts those of us that are left, he is at peace.
Our prayers are with you.
To the Goering Family:
I am so very, very sorry to hear about your son, Scott. My son is a Junior at JHS and my oldest son graduated from JHS in 2002. I cannot even imagine what you are going through, but I pray you find the strength to get through this. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Sorry for your loss. Colby and the Goering family.
We wish that there were words to say that would ease your pain and grief. You both raised a TERRIFIC & AMAZING son. May you find some peace and comfort in the days ahead. You ALL are in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless!
We are so saddened by the loss of your son Scott. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers daily. I first learned of your loss as I shared tears with our neighbors the Mc Knight Family. We may not have ever meet Scott but I feel the sadness and pain both family & friends are feeling to lose such a wonderful person.
I was so saddened when I read this story. I have a son in 11th grade and a daughter in elementary school. We are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
I am so sad as I struggle to find a few words that might console you and your Family in some small way. I am so confused over why such things must happen to good people. None of us can fathom your loss but I hope that it is comforting for all of you to know that so many people care so deeply and that your son, Scott, was so lucky to have has had such a loving Family and wonderful friends while he was here on this Earth. His soul is with you now and always will be. Love each other forever.
Although I didn't know the Goering family, it really touched my heart to hear of such tragedy. I hope you except my condolences, and keep in mind that he's in a better place and that you will see Scott again. I pray that each day, the pain becomes easier to cope with.

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.
Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.
If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

To the Goering Family...
Our prayers go out to you and to all those who new Scott. We pray that God will give you strength and some kind of comfort in knowing that Scott touched so many lives.
Dearest Goerings, I have wonderful memories of Scott---of his striking blond hair and HUGE smile. I loved making him laugh when he was little. I remember visiting Colby in Jupiter, and helping Scott catch tree frogs in the front yard. He will never be forgotten. My deepest condolences to the entire family. Much love always, Allie
We are so sorry for your loss. Hopefully the strength of family, friends, and faith will help you through this time. We will keep you all in our prayers.
My condolences are with you and your family at this most difficult time.

To Goering Family,
As a mother and someone who knew your son my heart bleeds for you all. There are not any words to say anything that could make this pain go away. Our kids spent so much time together over the years. Scott is a great kid! We are very lucky to have known him. We will all miss him so very much. All our Love and Sympathy, Panama Red and Sam DeMarco.
I was Scott's teacher freshman year, and he has always gone out of his way to stop by and say hi. I hope you will have some peace knowing that a person as kind as Scott is definitely already in heaven.
Jupiter High School
Although I did not know Scott, I would like to send my deepest condolences. No bond is as great as between a parent and child. My son, Kory who was 17 years old, from Jupiter was also killed in a car accident in March 2005.
I was deeply saddened to hear of Scott's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Don,Marilee & Girls - There are no words to express how sorry I am about your loss. It is a nightmare that no parent should never have to go through.I hope that your happy and proud memories of Scott will help to keep you strong. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sue Frates-Medeiros(Titleist & FJ)
i am very sorry for the quick lost of scott. I didn't know him that long but for the time that i knew him he was a very nice person. What is scott? A heart thats filled with tenderness a heart thats warm and kind a heart thats filled from day to day with other folks in mind. I am sending all my heart and prayers to his family cause there is nobody else like scott.
Life is so fleeting...I am so profoundly sad for such a loss of a wonderfully gifted person. This young man touched so many lives. My thoughts are for his family, and all who were priviledged by his beautiful spirit. Treasure him and the memories you have. Make the world a better place for his sake. I wish you great strength and inner peace. Know that his energy is all around you, this will be yours, eternally.
I remember Scotty as a Cub Scout: sweet, gentle, artistic, curious...
I will remember how he looked up to his big sisters and the look of adoration in his parents' eyes when they looked at him.
Don and Merilee, our hearts break for you.
I had the pleasure of playing soccer with Scott a few years back and am very blessed to have known him. The quality that I'll remember most was his selflessness,how he'd drop everything in class to help me understand a concept and just was so excited to help me understand. He was an amazing example. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
I did not know Scott at all. In fact I never heard of him before today. But it sounds like he was of the special people the God often blesses us with. His stay here was way to short, but it looks like God had a greater calling for Scott in Heaven. May his family and friends be at ease that it is not us who should feel sorry for Scott, but he who should feel sorry for us....he is with his maker and in a MUCH better place. God Bless to All!
Our hearts are saddened for Scott's family. His life was shortened much to soon. Our family lost my brother suddenly @ the age of 20 years young 3 yrs ago. We truly can understand what you are going through. May memories of Scott give you strength to go from day to day. All our best, The Petitpas Family
As a fellow Jupiter HS family, we pray for Scott's family. May you have the strength to endure the long road ahead and know that others hold you and Scott in their hearts.
My son is a junior at JHS and I have a 21-year old daughter. We didn't know Scott, but as a parent, I cannot imagine the grief you must be feeling for a life taken way too soon. My family's thoughts and prayers are with you as you try to deal with such a terrible loss.
Dear Merrily, Don and Girls,
I will always remember the friendly, polite boy-next-door who was such a good neighbor and role model for my grandchildren, Teddy, John, Meg and Caroline. I know your grief must be overwhelming, but you can always be proud of his exemplary character and outstanding achievements. My heartfelt condolences to you all.
To Scott's Family and friends... I did not know him or his friends but i just read this story and i'am so very sorry. I send my Condolences... I'am so sorry. I dont even know what to say other than I'am sorry

My prayers and sympathy go out to your family and friends and all his schoolmates.

He sounds like a wonderful young man. My heart just breaks, again, for you.
Strangers we are but as a mother of a high school senior also graduating next week, my heart hurts for you. I don't know if any good comes from such pain as this, but if it does, I pray it come to you as quickly as your son was taken from you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

God Bless you all, may you have the strength to carry through, my prayers and thoughts are with all of you. I worked in Student Services at JHS and moved to Blairsville this year. I did not know Scott on a personal level, which is a good thing in Student Services. But I remember his face. My prayers are with all of you in this very trying time.

My deepest sympathies. How absolutely devastating for you all. It is such a tragedy that we have lost such a dedicated and high achieving young man.
My you feel Scott's spirit with you always.
To Scottie's family and friends, courage and strength to you. I did not know Scott, but am good friends with his uncle up here in Chicago. Chuck spoke very highly of Scott and loved him very much. Peace to you all in your loss.
Dear Family and Friends of Scott,...life is but a vapor, it appears for awhile and then it vanishes away...that biblical scripture comes to mind when I read or hear of those tragic accidents and a loved one has died. And it stirs my emotions to love my loved ones more and others around me. I just dont know when God is going to take me home... I pray that God's grace will see us through the sorrows moment by moment...and restore us to peace of heart, moment by moment...Your Brother in Christ Jesus
Scott, you were one of my favorite people at JHS. You weren't just Top Four of our class. Anyone who has ever met you, knows that. Today I was talking about you to a fellow classmate, and we started laughing. The one thing that you did to make us smile and laugh was how enthusiastic you were. You would run down the hallway, shouting my fullname. Even if I was having the worst day, you were there to make me laugh.
Anyone who has ever met Scott, knows how friendly he was. But it was not to a certain social circle. Scott was friendly to anyone he ever spoke to. Someone earlier posted that Scott's parents raised him very well. This is very true. I hope that everyone learns to be somewhat like Scott.
And one day, Scott, we'll all see you in heaven. Maybe this time I'll run up screaming your fullname with a big smile. You are missed.
There are no words for this, but we want to tell you how very sorry we are and our hearts go out to you.
Scott was one of the brightest people I know, I am truly blessed to have met him. I learnt so much from him, and am so grateful for everything he taught me. To his parents, you should be proud to have raised such an incredible young man.
Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and my heart. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss.
To the Goering Family: No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve. We do not know nor understand God's time frame for any of us. Continue to cherish everyone each and every day. My prayers of encouragement, strength, and healing are with all of you.
I am deeply sorry for the loss of Scott. You have constantly been in my thoughts and prayers since I heard the news this morning. The Harville family will continue to pray for you and your family.
While I never knew Scott personally, his face was a smiling and familiar one in the halls of JHS. If one can be measured by the friends he makes and the impact he has on others, Scott will always stand tall. Your family is in my prayers. James Thomas
May your memories carry your family through this time of sorrow. It seems like just yesterday that our boys were playing together. Your "little boy" is truly God's angel. May you gain strength from God, family and friends. Our prayers are with you.
I had the pleasure of knowing scott and playing soccer with him. my thoughts will always be the same of scott, one of the nicest, hardest working person i have ever known. i will miss him much. my deepest sympathy goes out to the family, i am so sorry for this great loss. Scott will always be on my mind.

I played soccer with scott a few years ago and he was the only one who talked to me and was always amiable at games and practices. I loved and will very much miss his smile, brilliant mind, and easy-going manner.

I am so sorry about your loss. In the short time that I knew Scott I was able to see what a fine individual he was. Being a father myself, I can only hope that either one of my two children grow up to be as caring and successful as Scott. I hope someday that you can come to peace with this.
Please accept our deepest sympathies. Our daughter Valeree
was in a couple of his classes.
Goering Family, I saw Scott in church on Sunday and recalled the wonderful times that we had during youth soccer when he and Shea were 5 or 6. I mentioned to Cindy what a handsome and kind boy. There are no words that can express our sorrow for your family. Please accept the outpouring of our love for you and Scott. Of course, if there is anything we can do for you, we are at your call.
Don, I'm so sorry ! My wife and I have you and your wife in our prayers. David & Dorsey Wheeler

So sorry for your loss...words can't explain...he was way too young...my prayers are with you.
To all Scott's family,
Our love and prayers are with you all at this time,
My son was in Scott's graduating class and I can't imagine what Scott's family is going through. Scott was on his way from an honors dinner celebrating his graduating in the top ten of his class. He will always be in the hearts and minds of those who knew him.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
I am so sorry to hear about this unfortunate accident. I did not know Scott or the family but my friend works at Jupiter HS and told me what a great boy he was. I just recently lost my 28 yr old nephew in in the war in Iraq, and I know how much it means to read the guest book condolences. The only thing that I can figure is that God had a bigger plan for our loved ones! You're in my prayers!
It just made us cry out loud to hear about Scott. The pain is too great and too sudden and he was such a brilliant success. We are so sorry and hold you in our prayers and hearts. There is no comfort we can give that will suffice. God bless you in this time of tragedy and grief. -mother and grandmother of Katie Tummon-
im friends with james cloud and were in band this morning (2nd hour) and he come up to me and says-jordan you wont belive this-scott is dead ive heard about scott and he sounded like a really great guy-im really sorry he's gone.
