Love you dear brother in law. Have known you since 1964, when Randy and I met. You were a curly headed preteen. You always treated me like a big sister since I was 4 years older than you. Loved having you and Mike as ushers in our wedding.Loved going to Kerrville as you were so sweet to invite and include us all in the Kerrville Folk Festival…it was a blast. Really enjoyed the KU-ATM basketball game you got tickets for the three of us for. Once again it was AWESOME. Then we soared with you and the birds on our flight with you to Lawrence..Incredible you were the KING of the clouds. We miss and love you. RIP Scott
