I dated Scott for a few years. Although we were no longer dating when he passed away it still hit me like a ton of bricks. To me Scott was invincible. He always knew how to fix any bad situation, he was so smart, and he had an amazing heart. He would do anything for you. He was and still is the funniest person I have ever encountered. Every time I think about him I wonder where he would have been now if he was still alive.Scott fought his addiction and eventually wound up in prison. I thought that when he was released he would no longer have to fight. He worked hard at keeping sober and I believe he wanted to stay that way forever but it got the best of him and he couldn't fight anymore. He overdosed and after being revived he passed the next day from complications from an enlarged heart. When he used drugs people slowly started exiting out of his life. I'm not sure they understood that it was the heroin that pushed them away. I just hope that people remember the amazing person that he was before drugs took his life, because he really was amazing. I thank God everyday that I got to meet him and have him in my life for a period of time. UWMA :)
