there are no words to describe loss, somebody of our generation taking from this earth way too early...many fond memories of times spent growing up together, playing ball, skinning our knees, riding bikes, jumping puddles, cruising downtown in our little corner of this world we called Tawas, we all knew and protected one another through thick and deepest heartfelt condolences to Karen, family and are now free to fly high Scotty...R.I.P.

I grew up next door to Scott and Karen. We all had a great childhood, playing in the field, riding dirt bikes and snowmobiles. Scott nicknamed me Hulio. Lol. I've told that story many times over the years. May he fligh high with the Angels and watch over you Karen.
