"Sally, Anne, David, & Tom - Elizabeth and I are keeping you in our thoughts today, the 2nd anniversary of Scott's passing.  I think of Scott often when I'm working in the yard, taking in our or the neighbor's trash can, or just out and about in the neighborhood.  Although I didn't know Scott really well, I was impressed with his sharp intellect, keen sense of humor, and sincere kindness to people and animals.  He was very thoughtful and an excellent neighbor.  Scott brought us champagne and Patronies pizza the day we moved into our new house, and was genuinely happy for us in our happiness.  We wish we could've gotten to know him even better, including the opportunity to enjoy good food and laughter together.  All the best to you guys ...hope to see you again soon."

"I miss my Dad so much. Even though it's been two years, I'm still trying to come to terms with the fact that he's gone. I still have voicemails saved on my phone that I can't bring myself to listen to. We definitely had our differences in opinion, but I'm thankful that he and I had become very close in his last three years. I wish he could have met his Granddaughter. He was so happy to hear that I was pregnant, and didn't want to know whether it was a girl or a boy until she was born. He would have loved her so much. She has his eyes, and I love that I can look at them and see a part of him. It was fitting that I just heard one of his favorite songs on the radio in the car, Aqualung by Jethro Tull."

"As I was jet skiing this passed week I thought of Scott and how he talked me into buying a jet ski so we could both go out together.  Best idea ever as my wife and I are still jet skiing after all these years.  Thanks  Scott"

"Scott was my freshman year roommate at Alfred University. He was a good roommate, we worked well together. We were part of the infamous 4th floor in Bartlett. As Parker said you lose contacts over time.....very sad."

"I can't believe Scotty passed. So young. I was a senior and his Big Brother when he pledged Lambda Chi Alpha at Alfred University in 1968. He was a good kind guy, a little devilish with pledge pranks. I can hear his voice now. Came to Jane and my wedding and then like all, time passed. We ran into him in Penfield, NY in the 80s when he was a school psychologist. We were different by then, shared a few memories and went our ways. This is a sad shock. See ya little brother."

"I don't really want to write yet....I am holding Scott so deeply in my heart, and am still sad.  But time is passing, and I awoke today knowing it is his birthday....Happy Birthday Scott.  I am his step sister.  I first met Nelson Jupiter Logan in their house in White Plains, when he was asleep in his crib.  I was 3, he was 1.  Our parents were close friends, so I spent much time for many years, with Jupie, and Patty, his older sister, who passed away in the mid-1970's.  After both our parents were divorced, my dad, Norman, married his mom, Bertie.  Patty, Scott and I were thrilled to be in one family.  One day Jupie/Nelson came to me and asked me what would be a better name for him.  I immediately said, "Scott" - and he jumped on it as perfect.  I haven't used his childhood nickname until now - and Scott would probably be pissed if he knew.....  Scott was always kind and thoughtful.  He was warm and loving and open minded.  He was a dear brother.  And he loved my dad Norman dearly and deeply.  When dad got really sick and had to move to assisted living, Scott came to my aid to help me with dad in many ways, and he and Robin moved dad's furniture into Chandler Hall.  I had hoped that Scott would recover his health enough to visit with me in California for retreat with my Spiritual Master Teacher....but that is not to be.  I wish you all my love and hope you are feeling refreshed in your new beginning, Scott.  I love you. - Jane"

"I came to Scott by way of marriage to Robin younger sister, Ruth, and he always resonates with me. Strong spirit, lots of natural horsepower. A blessing and a reminder, I suppose, for us all to love as we incline but guard our loved ones as we're able.
Wonderful photos and loving thoughts from old friends here make me happy. Scott always had his feet in two worlds. North and South. Land and water. About land and people the old Irish described such as "thin" meaning easy to pass between normal experience and otherwise. Let me share with everyone here an old Yeats poem, "The Song of Wandering Aengus"
"I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.

When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire aflame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glittering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by may name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering
Through hilly lands and hollow lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun".   1897

From Steve Flanders"

"Scott, we only knew you for a short time but we had some fun, shared dinners, special holidays and events.
It was nice to have that time and we are sorry you didn't get to spend more time with your family and friends who loved you.RIP Scott, Lynn and Chris Joyce"

"My memories of Scott go back some forty years ago when he was a student at Alfred University.  I was in the role of Dean of Students at the time Scott was enrolled and had numerous contacts with him.  I remember fondly the interactions we had on campus and always found him to be a genuine and caring individual.  He also had a distinct sense of humor and appreciated the closeness he had with his friends."

"On Nicole's behalf, I'd like to apologize for the absence of anything here from her - she has spoken of wanting to submit something to site, but she is still coming to terms with her grief and has said that when she tries, she can think of little more than "I don't want you to be gone..."""

"Scott and I didn't have years of living nearby to get to know each other well, our few chances to meet were mostly isolated to visits to his home while vacationing at Holden Beach.  Even with only these fleeting visits, I cannot express the extent to which I was welcomed into his life and family with generosity and open arms - I did not feel isolated from him as a 'son-in law', it wasn't his concern for Nicole that governed how he treated me, but a genuine concern for me individually.  Though we've had the opportunity to do things together on these visits (such as cooking, which anyone who knows him knows is one of his great joys), it was only a few weeks ago that Scott and I had our first chance to 'male bond', to really sit down together and get to open up to each other on a more personal level - now that the initial shock is over, it brings me peace to know we had the opportunity."

"Scott and I play racquetball for over 15 years in Penfield.  I would go over to his house every Wed. and we would take turns cooking dinner for each other.  Good food, good wine, good conversations.  We will play again some day and I will let you won some games as well.  Love  David"

"Pam and I have very fond memories of our time with Scott.  It was easy to see how important his family was to him.  We had such a good time on the Island of Anguilla at Paige and Dave's wedding.  We all enjoyed our times at Holden Beach with Scott as the Chef providing us with such delicious meals and interesting conversations.  Scott, you will be missed by all of us!"
