Life is short; live every day to the fullest. Hug your loved ones; tell them you love them. Hold each other; not grudges. If you haven’t spoken to someone in a while; call or text them. Find your person, your “3 a.m.”; the one you can call anytime day or night and they will always answer. BE that person for somebody. Smile at a stranger. Be kind to one another. Remember; you don’t know a person’s story by the chapter you walk in on.
A private burial will take place at a later date. If desired, donations can be made directly to the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention in Scott’s memory.
