So sorry Sherri, prayers to you and your family! Scotty was one of the great men i´ve had the privilege to know in my life. I remember when he put an upstart underclassman (me) in his place by pummeling him on the football field and immediately apologizing for having to do it! We really loved seeing you guys when we came to church in Liberty. Scott made a mark on everyone he met, there´s no doubt who he´s with right now! We will miss him, but can´t wait to see him again!
