  17. Condolences to his family and friends. Deeply saddened to have found that Scott is no longer with us. I became friends with him while he was married to Gwen with whom I worked with at WNC Group Homes For Autistic Persons. It was bad enough to go through her death and now to know he’s no longer with us seems unreal. He was the best friend, he picked up where Gwen left off and would stop to help me whenever I needed help or advise. His laughter and great sense of humor will be missed. RIP my friend and ride that Harley forever. πŸ’”
