I’m Scott’s Dad, Chuck and this is the most unfortunate way to meet with all of you today.
Since last Friday when Scott’s physical self left us there has been an outpouring of love and respect regarding Scott to Peggy and myself.
One conversation that Peggy and I had that really touched us deeply was from a very dear friend from Chicago it was.
Remember the “love” That is of how Peggy and I loved Scott and how he loved us, loved his family and Erica
Noting else matters just the love
Scott’s spiritual and physical selves were on a journey. He touched our lives with his love for us, his family, friends, his music, role play gaming, Vikings and always being there for you when you needed it.
So, where is Scott? All you need to do is to think about all your times with Scott and how he made your life better and there you will feel his love, Scott’s presence is there in you.
Nothing else matters just the love
Scott’s physical journey has ended there is no more physical pain or demanding work schedules.
Scott’s spiritual journey moves forward.
Remember his love for you.
We all remember that Scotty truly embraced a Viking moniker.
Here is Scott’s spirit
This is an excerpt from James Jarrett’s "Valhalla"
Now they will carry me on my shield
Though my burning bier
Be but a lonely cell
And tonight I will dine
In the great hall of Valhalla
That place that still lives on
In the mind of men
