Scott Taylor!  This one hit hard!  I think I've been notified by 10 of you in the past few days of Scott's passing.  Scott was a good friend of mine in high school from working together at the Highlander Drive-In on 21st South.  He was so easy to talk with about anything, and we were always playing tricks on customers and other employees.... sorry if you were one of our victims!  Even with that, he was a gentleman, clean cut, nice language, always good things to say about others.... you get the picture.  I was sad because we couldn't connect with him for the 50th reunion, and then of course, this sad result really mad me sad.  Sounds like he really found happiness in life, however, and I'm so glad for that.  RIP, dear friend, Scott! xoxo

i was so sad to hear about Scott. Like i posted on your site, he was remarkable. I was rather shy when i started out in 10th grade. I remembered having clases with him... He would always stop me in the hall and say Hi.  He just was such a good person to be around. He always made you feel like you were really liked.

rest in peace...
