I am so sorry to hear about Scotty. He was fun to be around. Always quick at making people laugh! Florida High just wouldn't have been the same without him. I'm glad I had a chance to be around him in high school! He will be remembered and missed by many!

We will forever cherish and honor the joyful memories of our beloved classmate "Scotty".

I remember the neighborhood playing a football game in Scotty's back yard, and fishing in his family's pond. It had been about six years the last time I ran into Scotty, and he still had that same smile. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Cant believe it. Just talked to Scotty a few weeks ago. He was in such good spirit. He looked good and was very happy. I will never forget Scotty's sense of humor, and that slant headed smile he always carried. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family. May God bless you now and always.

I'll miss that teenage boy I used to call Skidd. I had not seen Scotty in a while, so in my mind, he will forever be 17, that cute grin on his face, playing baseball, and quick with the punchline.

Dear Joby and Mary:

I am deeply saddened by the news of Scotty's passing. It's been so long since I last saw him that I still see him as a smiling, energetic, fun-loving, kind young boy, with great character and presence. I'm sure he grew up to be the same sort of man. May your faith bring you comfort in this difficult time. Much love to you both.

Although I haven't spent time with Scotty in many years, I have special memories of him. Scotty always made me smile; he shared anything he had with those in need and seemed to encourage those around him even when he was down. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Kidd family for their loss, but I know that Scotty had a deep and abiding relationship with God; he is with Jesus now.

My memories of Scotty are those of a young boy, elementary school-aged, always smiling, laughing and "cuttin up". Though it had been many years since I had seen Scotty, I have no doubt that he was the same smiling character that I had the pleasure of knowing all those years ago. He was one of those people that EVERYONE liked because he was just so much fun to be around! My prayers are for his family - that they find the strength, courage and grace to go on after such a devastating loss. And for his friends, both old and new, I pray that we all strive to be the kind of person that I remember him as - the kind that smiles and laughs and wants nothing more than to be a good person and have fun doing it!

To all of Scotty's family, I was very sad to hear the news. Myself and many others have only great funny memories of Skidd. I hadn't seen Scotty in a while, but I had heard he was doing well. I don't think I've ever seen or heard Scotty's name without a smile crossing my face reminding me of some great memory about something hilarious that he did or said. He will be remembered well...my thoughts are with you guys.

Miss me, but let me go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free

Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go
For this is a journey that we must all take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home

When you are lonely, and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go
