“I honor you and my friendship with your mom. I know, you are loved. ” - Susan White Hicks

“Scottie, today you would have been forty-four years old. What a happy baby you were, I would awake mornings and find you smiling at me from your crib. You had such a warm happy smile. I have so many wonderful memories of you. Growing up you were so very shy and quiet which belied your intelligence. I think because you were the middle child you made sure that you stayed as close to me as you could. I think of you so often and I wish I could tell you how much I have always loved you and how sad it makes me to know that you did not have the chance to really experience life. I know that you would have been a wonderful husband and father because you were a kind, gentle, patient and a very loving son. Mom ” - Juanell Smart

“Scott, I missed you so badly that I can not find the words to describe it. you were like the little brother that I could hang out with everywhere and do everything with. me you al and teri had so much fun together. your dad alfred was so nice to us all and such a good father to you all that I felt like part of your family always, but scotty my friend, I want to come over and hang out with you right now and I can't, because that maniac took you away from me. DANG! I AM SOOOOOOO MAD RIGHT NOW! I LOVE YOU SCOTT! I MISS YOU SOOOO BAD! I have to stop. R.I.P. ” - Frank W. Garrett

“My dear childhood friend Scottie. How you are missed! When I think of us as children, I remember how intelligent, funny, honest, and friendly you were. How we would talk for hours because both of us were young people who could understand more than adults realized that we could. We would spend our days in the California sun building go-carts, building clubhouses, and pretending to be married. If you were alive right now... I'd still want to talk to you. You are my forever friend... I loved you then & love you still. ” - Carla Moyer Hotz
