I coached Scott at Milwood Little League in Kalamazoo for 2 years. Scott was a great kid, and good player! He always gave it his all and apparently delivered all his adult life! I am proud to have coached him!

Caren, just saw your post on Randy's tribute wall. I am so sorry. Randy spoke of Scott often and spoke of that day they ran into each other. Two friends together in heaven, taken too soon. Love to our Husbands forever. May you have comfort and peace.
