  4. Donna, I thought the story of you two getting together years after High School was so sweet and I was hoping that this story would have had a ‘happily ever after’ ending. I am so sorry for your loss. I do take solace in knowing that Scott can rest now. I believe that he is walking the streets of gold with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please know that you are and will continue to be in my prayers.
    ~Sincerely,

  16. Donna….. I have done nothing today except keep your family on my mind…. I cannot even begin to imagine the loss you are feeling right now and yet, you must be brave for the children. That is an enormous amount of weight for a woman to have to bare…. Please know my thoughts are with you and if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

  25. My heart Is so heavy for Donna and the kids. Scott was such a wonderful man that never give up on anything. He fought so hard for so long. Destini was close to Scott. I am very thankful that God put someone so incredible in my daughters life .He taught her some things that will carry on in the rest of her life. I know she will always remember what he taught her. ‘Scott, thank you for being so good to her.’ He was an incredible husband, Dad, and friend. Donna, I know this is heart wrenching to go through and I am so very sorry. I will be praying for you and the kids each and every time I bow my head, I love you. We are sure going to miss Scott and I know I will defiantly see him again one day. ‘You save me a good shady spot underneath a willow Scott, see you again some day.’

  28. I met Scott at the Caring House in Durham, NC when my daughter was receiving radiation treatments. It is with a heavy heart to know that another was taken from us. Donna, may God give you strength and encouragement in the days ahead. Heaven gained another Angel; Scott, say hi to my daughter, Katrina.
