Very sorry for your loss Scott. I dont begin to assume I know your heart or mind, but do offer the comfort of time to you. May you and your family process this loss in peace and love. Time will make things easier. Much love- Chad

Beautiful photo memories of your dad, Scott! I love the Glacier Park pics but I really think my favorite is him riding the carousel! He looks like he was such a fun-loving man with a twinkle in his eyes. I know this is a very sad time for all of you but I also know you will be celebrating his life and all of these wonderful memories.
