Dear Jeanne, Natalie and Penny, Pls accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your husband and father. As I was reading through the obituary columns the other day, Scott's name caught my eye. At first I thought it may have been his father but I quickly realized it was my VVLP friend Scott. I remembered the many days Scott and John Stacks and myself spent at Stony Run County Park talking about the building of a Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Scott was one of the founding members. The full, distinctive tone of his voice and his sense of business had a way of making the meetings enjoyable and productive. He was the one w/the business mind. God bless him for his dedication to our cause. Scott was modest about his contributions to the creation of the memorial and he really shyed away from taking the credit he earned for his hard work. We admired him for that trait. I regret that I lost touch w/him because I enjoyed his company. And I regret I did not have the opportunity to her him talk about his girls as they grew into adulthood. You know it is ironic that Scott's passing was just after the passing of General William Westmoreland. I guess the General needed a good soldier to accompany him on his journey to heaven! I can see Scott walking in full uniform w/his four4 Purple Hearts and his Army Comendation w/V proudly displayed. Please know Scott will be remembered in my prayers as will each of you be remembered. God bless you and may His peace be with you.

I don't remember where we were going or why--so many years ago, but there was Frank Schere, Jim Jaeger and myself and Scott, the song on the radio was Sweet Little Sheila, we all started singing the song, we were on Lake St. in back of the fairgounds. It was some of the best days of our lives. I will always remember Scott, our youth and the good times. Jim Rush
