Dear Scott, I hope to see you again in heaven. I have fond memories of you from New Troy Elementary School. We were classmates and you were my first boyfriend when we were in the 1st grade. At lunch time we would play together with the other kids, you usually were Batman and I was Batgirl. My sympathy and condolences to your Family and Loved Ones.
Now I lay me down to sleep; I pray the Lord my Soul to Keep; But if I die before I wake; I pray the Lord My Soul To Take. Amen
God Bless You! Heaven is our Home.
Sincerely, Susan Strauss Videnovich
