The passing of our brother Scotty has been so difficult to understand and come to terms with. I’m thankful that he’s no longer suffering, and I’m so thankful that he found a “family” in Charlotte NC that he loved and could just be himself with. They loved our brother so much and so did we. I love you Scotty, RIP! Thank you for always being a great brother, friend and protector!

I came to know Scott as a participant in Street SmArts where we gathered weekly to write poetry and paint. Scott brought a special spirit to the room and I will never forget him. He changed me.

To Scott’s family, friends and neighbours, I celebrate you, Scott, with joy and peace! I met Scott at the Main Library, where we attended “write Like You Mean It” and “Turning Pages Book Club” . This is when I got to know Scott. He expressed so colourfully and graphically of his life’s journey that I was drawn to him. He made me laugh a lot. He had a poetic soul. Everyone enjoyed his poems that told about his everyday journey. Scott was great at writing and I am so glad that he was with us at StreetsmARTs. I thank Scott for helping me to shine through and overcome my shyness. I loved that Scott shared something Major with me and it was his faith and love and trust in God. Thank ...You Scott.
I am happy I got to share a part of my journey with Scott. To see that we are not alone in the trials of life. We need each other to make life prosperous and livable.
Thank you to Scott’s family for making this moment possible to honour you and Scott and all who knew him. I thank God and give Him the glory for allowing me to see that we are all on a journey that connects us in some way for a period of time as we help each other to move on. I will treasure every moment of the memory of you. We enjoyed your presence here at First United Methodist Church here in Charlotte, NC. God bless you and I love you all in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
May you, Scott Rest In Peace... I love you!
Your friend Always and forever,
Belinda Hunter.
