Scott Thrower

You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he lived, you can close your eyes and pray that he will come back, or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love that you shared, you can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn back, or you can do what he would want; smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Scott passed away on Thursday June 14, 2013.
