"I miss you so much, Scott. You were such a joy to our family even through your sickness. So talented and loving. My only comfort is knowing you are in no more distress and your illness is all taken away. You are singing and playing guitar for our God and your grandpas are so happy to be singing with you. I will see you again in heaven some day.
I love you so much.
"I still can't believe you are not here with us. We all miss you every day. We saw a Spring Training Rockies game this week and thought about you a lot. Happy Birthday Scott!"
I sure miss you and think about you often. We had a lot of fun at the farm in Stratton and skiing together in Colorado. It sometimes feels as if it wasn't that long ago. I hold those memories dearly. I've been struggling the past few years with my own issues. I'm currently in a place working on them and things are going great. Anyways love you Scott and save a place in Heaven for me so we can meet again one day."
"We miss you Scott and wish you could still be with us. We enjoy wonderful memories of you growing up and enjoying time together. I love your dog, Sebastion and enjoy seeing him when I get to see your parents. You took such good care of him and so do they. I have great memories of our times together and am looking forward to seeing You and singing praises to our wonderful Lord in Heaven."
"It has been 5 years since we last saw you. It has been a long 5 years with many thoughts every day. I'm sure heaven is treating you quite well :) How could it not? I love and miss you every day."
"Another year has gone by. Can't imagine what a glorious heaven you are experiencing. I'm sure it is even more wonderful than my earthly mind can comprehend. But I miss you so much. I think of you so often and want to share thoughts and experiences with you. You were such a wonderful son. So loving and gentle. You loved your nieces and nephew and they loved you. Sebastian is doing good...getting older but still would like to chase bunnies if we let him. You are always in my heart. Love you eternally. ❤️"
"We spent the week in California and thought tons about you. How much you enjoyed the beach and everything surrounding it. I miss you very much but know you are having a ball where you are! Happy Birthday!"
"Today you would have been 39. I miss you and your sweet, caring way of being my son. I was overjoyed when you were born. You were a sweet, contented baby and easy to raise. You enjoyed life when you were well and made the best of it when you were sick, never complaining. I am glad you have no more struggles but miss you so much. Happy birthday forever in Heaven. See you someday again.
"It is hard to believe it has been 4 years since Scott left this world. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family as they remember this anniversary."
"I. Can't help but think about the time we spent together on the ocean shores and you taking pictures of all the beautiful things that we would see. The days here are much like then. It makes me miss you all the more we are going to the gulf today in your memory. I will put my arms around your mom and recall more of the wonderful things we did together. I LOVE you so much. Dad"
"I've been thinking about you tons over the last few months. How much you struggled and how difficult life was for you. You still managed to bring a smile to everyone's face and bring joy to our lives. I love and miss you Scott."
"I do miss you so much, Scott. It still seems so bizarre that you are not with us. I think of you so many times remembering the fun times we spent together...the photography that we both enjoyed, the beach watching the waves, jet skiing, watching tv and so many more times. You are in my heart forever and I am so looking forward to seeing you again in heaven where we can worship our Savior together. Love you forever.
"Scott, We miss you and your kind, caring personality, and want you to know how much you are loved and still in our thoughts and prayers, and are looking forward to seeing you again in Heaven. I cherish the memories of the times we were able to spend together while you were with us. I love you and your beautiful family so much! Hugs and Kisses to you and Thank You for sharing the time you could with me."
"Today we went to the beach on Galveston island. The weather was so much like the weather when we would visit you in San Diego. Today reminded me so much of the times we spent together on the water so many places. Oh how I miss you today on your birthday. I love you so much my dear son"
"I thought about you many times today Scott. Wondering if you would have loved to be at the beach with us, what you might like to do if you were here with us in Texas, if you would have liked the place we ate dinner. We miss you very much and think about you often. We love you."
"Happy birthday my dear sweet Scott. I miss you so much and you continue to be in my thoughts daily. I wish you had been here today to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico with Lisa, Brian, dad and I. You loved the ocean as much as I do. I remember when you and I sat together at the Pacific Ocean and watched the waves and dogs playing on Dog Beach. You were so much fun to be with. I will love you eternally and this day you were born 38 years ago made my life complete. Love to you from me."
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTT. HAVE A HEAVENLY KIND OF DAY...IT WILL BE SUNSHINE FOR SURE WITH YOUR FRIEND JESUS. WE MISS YOU"
"I couldn't fall asleep last night thinking of what was going on 3 years ago. I finally found comfort in knowing that you are in a wonderful place and no longer being haunted by your illness. I love and miss you Scott."
"I loved him a lot and he was one of the best uncles ever. I remember getting my glasses that day and showing him my glasses at the hospital. I miss you a lot!!!!
"This was a very difficult day three years ago. You know how much you were loved. We are sure you are doing well but you are still missed here so much. Give a hug to Grandpa and reserve a place for us. Thank Jesus for all his help in making this possible"
"Scott, you are a wonderful part of our family, and we miss your presence here with us. Your kind and considerate life, in spite of coping with a terrible illness is a lesson for all of us. We are looking forward to joining you again in Heaven. We miss you this Christmas season."
"Three years ago today was the last time i saw you face to face. But now you are face to face with our Lord Jesus Christ in the glorious place Jesus, when here on earth, called it heaven and we also do today. I miss you so much and would enjoy working on a project together. We will be celebrating our Lord Jesus Christ's birthday with you as well. Looking forward to the day when we will see you again.Love,Dad"
"I am looking at Sebastian and remembering the day that Dan and I went with Scott at his request to go look at a beagle puppy. I had never seen a beagle puppy and it was love at first sight for Scott. He so much enjoying training Sebastian and Sebastian had a full unconditional love for Scott. He would watch for Scott to come home and sleep either with Scott or right by his bed. Scott would take him for rides in his car and to this day Sebastian loves traveling. We are watching over Sebastian for you, Scott. I know he remembers you.
Love from Sebastian and me."
"So many memories. So many times I want to talk to you again, Scott, and share something with you. So many times I see something that you would have loved photographing. How can it be that 3 years have gone by without you in our lives except in our memories. I am so thankful for the years that you had but so sorry that your life ended too soon. I miss you so much, Scott."
"It's been 21/2 years since you left us, Scott. My heart is heavy but I know you are not hurting anymore. I will see you again and worship our Heavenly Father together. Sebastian is doing good. He is getting a few grey hairs but still enjoys chasing squirrels & rabbits. Love you eternally. Mom"
"will always remember Scott as a great funny kid feel very lucky to have known him"
"Scott, I miss you so much in so many ways. Sabastian, I wear your. Socks, jeans, shoes, jacket and shirts, in these ways you are so close. Thank you so much for these simple tokens of pleasant memories. Have another day of joy and celebration with our heavenly Father and family that are with you in heaven. What a great. Day of joy when. We can join with you there. I love you so much"
"I still think about you every day, Scott. Just two days ago I had a massage for my head and neck and thought about you almost the whole time. We talked about you and how you had the "healing touch" as she put it. Have a great birthday in Heaven. I love and miss you."
"My sweet son was born 37 years ago today and I will always be so blessed to have him in my life, even though it was way too short a time. I think about Scott daily and remember fun times with him. The day he was born was such a wonderful day since he completed our family in a very special way. I love you forever, Scott. Love from your mom."
"We miss you so much Scott. You are a wonderful caring young man who left us too soon. We know you are with our Wondeful Lord and Savior and I am looking forward to joining You there. There is an empty place in our lives here, WE are comforted to know that you are in place where there are no tears, pain and sorrow like we have here. Thanks be to God."
"Michele and Dan - It is hard to believe it has been 2 years since Scott left this earth for a holy place. I pray that God wraps his arms around both of you and his family during this anniversary. God Bless Bob and Marsha Coulter."
"My dear Scott I will go up and visit with you and,grandpa with my prayers telling you how much we miss and love you and grandpa. We hung up Christmas wreaths on you stones . You are at peace with Our Dear Lord"
"This is a difficult day for so many parents. I can only hope that in God's mercy you are there to meet the angel spirits that were sadly taken yesterday in our great world. May you and Dad and sweet Jesus surround them in your love. We miss you."
"Scott, you are missed so much. Life is just not the same without you. You were such a wonderful son and I will love you forever. I miss you when I see a pretty bird or flower or sunset. I miss seeing you play with your nieces and nephews. We're going to a place today to see some birds here in Texas. I know you will be with us in our hearts."
"I've been thinking about you a lot this year. I miss you."
"I am remembering 18 months ago about this exact same time that our sweet Scott went to Jesus to be healed. It was such a sad day and I still miss you so much, Scott. I think of you many times each day and remember the wonderful son that you were. Can't believe that you are gone to heaven. I know your life is wonderful now. Love you eternally"
"I remember your loving face and your last hug. Thank you for being my wonderful, loving son. I will always treasure the last mother's day card you gave me and the words, " I love you very much!".
Love to you in heaven.
"Hi Scott, wow, you were quite a guy. Even with your disability you did more with your life than most. Your family "is" obviously very proud of you. My wife Annie went to heaven shortly before you. I bet you're friends. I've spoke to your mom a couple of times through email, she really loves you and you are dearly missed. Your can do attitude and loving ways=a legacy of hope! God bless!"
"Thank you for sharing this with me and allowing me to be a part of this very meaningful day. Scott sounds like he was an amazing man and I am only sorry I didn't get the chance to meet him myself. You two seem like very loving and wonderful parents and I'm sure he was lucky to have had you both in his life. Please feel free to come see me again at the Melting Pot whenever and say hi."
"What a beautiful day it is...It is for you too. We miss you. We are still on our earthly journey, while yours is complete. Now in your eternal home, may we join you and Grandpa one day when our journey here is complete. God Bless Us All"
"Happy birthday, Scott."
"My sweet Scott, how I miss you. On this day 36 years ago our family was complete with your birth. We all so looked forward to you, our spring baby. You were such a kind, loving son and brother. Not a bad word about anybody and so patient. How I wish I could give you one more kiss and hug. I will always treasure the last hug you gave me when you were so sick. Love you eternally."
"Scott, tomorrow is your birthday. Again I so very much miss your wonderful smile and your gentle spirit. There is not a day that I am not reminded of how much you mean to me even though I cannot hug you in person. God is so good, as you have discovered in a very real way, but I am so much looking forward to be with you. Love, Dad"
"For over a year we have missed you, Scott, So many times we have cried, If love could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place, no one else could fill. It broke our hearts to lose YOU, But you didn"t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. I treasure the memories of"
"Dear Scott, the summer pool party at Lou's felt empty without you. I kept waiting to see you appear lounging on a pool floatie. Sure do miss you. Love you."
"Scott so much loved going to the Denver Museum and this morning Lisa went with Dan and I. We saw an incredible IMAX story of baby elephants and chimpanzees that are orphaned and raised to go back into the wild. Scott, you would have enjoyed seeing it with us and I felt your presence with us. You loved animals as much as we do and had so much compassion for them. We all miss you."
"Dear Scott, What a difference this day has been from a year ago. You are no longer suffering and are enjoying heaven now. I miss you so much and want you here with me but I wouldn't want you to be in pain to be here. So my memories of our time together will sustain me until we meet again in heaven. What a wonderful son God gave us. Love you so much forever! Mom"
"I can't believe it has been a year already. I am sure he is looking down from heaven watching over all of you right now. Just remember God has a plan for each of us and we don't know those plans ahead of time. In Christian love, Bob and Marsha."
"It seems like when I think of you, its coming out of the RV parked at the farm. curly brown hair, t-shirt stretched across your broad shoulders, Sebastian on the leash. Off for a walk or making duty calls. You had a heart of gold, and the look of compassion. You are missed by your family."
"It is hard to believe a year has passed, quickly and slow, goes the time. I believe. It is the time of year to celebrate the birth of the Savior, which made it possible for you and Grandpa and all mankind to be recreated in His Divine Image. We are sure you are part of God's family and we pray that in due season we too will see its splendor."
"One year ago today was an extremely hard day for me but a great one for you. You have spent the last year as a completely healed person without any pain. For that I am very thankful. Say hi to everyone else that joined you in heaven this year and those that arrived before you. I love and miss you Scott."
"Scott, it has been 11 long months since you went to heaven. I sure miss you but know that you are with God, your grandfathers and many other relatives. The praise and fellowship must be incredible. I think of you every day and love the memories of our good times together.
Love you so much,
"Scott, the leaves are turning to golden and starting to fall from the trees. I remember last year when you were such a good companion and helper to rake the leaves. I miss you and think of you often. Love,
"Dear, sweet Scott, It has been 2 months since you and Grandpa Diehl were united in heaven. I miss both of you so much and think of you everyday. Can't wait to see you again. Much love!"
"Will you please give Dad a squeeze from me!! Your reunion is beyond my imagination. Jesus knew you both and surely has gotten you in touch. Could you call out the recruits to help is through this day."
"Now you are with both grandfathers praising Jesus since my sweet dad died Friday evening. The rejoicing and singing, laughing, telling stories with two grandfathers who loved to visit must be amazing. Miss you,honey."
"We Miss You Scott. Your family is carrying on as best they can. It has been six months but time has no meaning for you. 10,000 years is but a moment in Gods time. Bright Shining Star!"
"What a hard day it was 6 months ago. I still can't believe you are not with us anymore but I know you are in a better place. We all love you Scott."
"6 months ago today our lives changed forever when you left us too early, Scott. We miss you every moment of every day and think about your life with us. God lent you to us for a short time and then He wanted you in heaven. We love you forever."
"It is Memorial Weekend, and it is a bitter sweet holiday. We miss you and will remember you more than ever this weekend. The place our Lord has prepared for you is what will make you beyond happy. That is our hope too."
"Good morning, Scott. It is a beautiful day here in Colorado and I can't imagine what a beautiful day you are having in heaven with Jesus.Nothing to compare to this day on Earth. I miss you and see something that reminds me of you everyday. Love you."
"Thinking of Scott brings happy memories to me, although, I know he suffered beyond words. Recently, Caden and I watched the most marvelous dvd that Scott designed and created of Ty teaching Caden how to ride motorcycle. Priceless!"
"My dear Scott you are in our thoughts and prayers everyday. We know you are smiling and at peace. I will light the candle you made for us when we get back to the farm. You lit a candle for grandpa after his bypass operation. We miss you and love you."
"I'm sad that we aren't planning a Rockies or Nuggets outing, or a round of golf to celebrate your birthday. Go play a round of heavenly golf without me and tell me all about it next time we're together. I love you Bro."
"Dear Scott, we miss you. I spent part of the day with your Mom and Dad and Lisa and family. They miss you but are doing what you want them to do. They keep going each day with trust in Your Lord and Ours."
"March 25th will always be a day to celebrate and remember a very special your man. We miss you Scott and know that we will have the greatest of family reunions with our loved ones and our heavenly Father."
"Today is a rather somber day on your birthday, but also know that is rather selfish to wish you were here with us and still suffering the pain that you so bravely endured for so many years. your day will be special I'm sure."
"Your dad and I were overjoyed at having a new son to love and join to our sweet family 35 years ago today.I miss you but know that you are well in heaven and being held in the arms of Jesus.We will see you again someday.Until then,lots of love."
"Good morning our precious Scott. This morning I am remembering when you were born and your sister and brothers were so happy when we brought you home from the hospital our spring bundle of love and joy."
"Happy Birthday to Scott in heaven! I'm sure your looking down at all of us with your awesome smile! We are all wishing you were here today so we could celebrate. But your celebration in heaven is much greater than on earth. Have a great day!"
"Good morning, our precious Scott. I am sure your morning in heaven is glorious. I miss you so much but am trying to be brave and strong like you were. I look forward to seeing you in heaven and being able to worship our Lord Jesus together. I know that you knew I loved you but I wish I had told you more often and given you more hugs. Love you forever and ever. Mom"
"We just want everyone to know that Scott's dog Sebastian is doing well. We are loving him and know that Scott is happy that Sebastian is coping well. He is a wonderful companion and I am sure misses his bed partner but has found that our queen size bed will let him sleep beside us like he did with Scott. We miss you, Scott."
"I never met Scott, but as the mother of a son with schizophrenia and all of your beautiful tributes, I know that Scott was a kind, gentle soul who lived his life with amazing bravery, strength and grace. My family and I are so very sorry for your loss and that this world has lost such a sweet person who touched so many lives. He has touched ours as well."
"What can I say... Scott and I were attached at the hip from sometime near 6th grade when he showed up as this bottle-cap glassed kid from Nebraska at Campbell Elementary in Arvada until graduation from Arvada West High School. Every single memory I have from that period of my life involves Scott in some way. He will be alive within my thoughts now and forever more."
"Our prayers go out to Lisa and her family during this Christmas season and every day that you celebrate and cherish your time with Scott. Thank you to each of you for sharing your loving memories of Scott so we can honor and celebrate him with you."
"Through our brief relationship with Dan and Michele, we got to know Scott. His struggle with schizophrenia had been since his teen years. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Schram family through this difficult time just before the Christmas holiday. In Christian love Bob and Marsha Coulter."
"Our family and the Diehl family have been friends for many years. We had visited with Scott, usually at family occasions. What a special person he was! Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the family in their loss of Scott. May our Lord be with all of you in a special way during this time."
"Scott was always one of my favorite cousins to hang out with. We sure had a lot of good times on the 4 wheelers, skiing, playing basketball and nintendo games. Scott and Steve always seemed to get to the end of the games first they were just so darn smart. Scott will be in my heart and memories forever and I know he is in a better place now."
"Lou Kionka lit a candle on December 18 2010
I have great memories of the hours I spent having a great massage, and the wonderful conversations we had about school, his bike rides exploring bike trails, his walks with Sebastion, and his hopes and dreams with what he was learning in his college classes. He was fun to spend time with and I miss him."
"I have many great memories of times spent with Scott my nephew. He enjoyed 4-wheeler rides with Chris & David, walking the dogs (great big smile when he let Sebastian off the leash). His fish stories, his adventures jeeping in the mountains. Always those beautiful eyes and big smile that showed he was really listening and cared about others."
"One candle is not enough! So glad we could spend Thanksgiving together and most recently our trip to Kearney Mannheim Steamroller Christmas concert. Scott is very much alive in my memories! Love ya!"
"Scott was born when we lived at Ord, NE and I remember how excited we were for Dan, Michele & family. As the years went by, it was (is) always so much fun to visit. One of the last times we were together, I remember working with Scott on the computer. He was very patient with this Aunt Pam. I will always remember him being very kind and considerate."
"Dan, Michelle and family, Please accept Don's and my heartfelt sympathy on your loss of Scott. We too know what it is like to loose a child and the memories you have shared with him and with each other will make your grief much easier to deal with. Our thoughts and prayers are with you."
"Last summer at the reunion, Scott and I relaxed on the deck watching Will play and talking about boating and jet skiing. I am a little afraid of the water, but Scott said I should at least give it a try. I didn't do it but next summer I will get on a jet ski and think of Scott."
"I am Dan's cousin and I want to send my sympathy to Dan and Michelle and their whole family for the loss of their precious Scott. I saw Brian's touching message on facebook last night and I can feel your pain. We just lost our 25 year old Grandson, Erik this April and I know it is one of the hardest things to go through. I am praying that God will give you strength."
"Our memories of Scott are when he was very young living in Stratton. Our families attending the same church and school activities. Though the family has been gone from Nebraska for some time we remember him with love and he will be missed."
"What a wonderful site to remember Scott, great stories. Lisa you are an amazing sister. Scott gave me some great massages and really relieved a lot of my pain after my baby was born and riding in the MS ride. He was always so nice to be around. I think Cobe looks alot like him as a child. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family."
"We have wonderful memories of Scott coming to our neighborhood and playing with our son Todd and John Ellis. Scott would sometimes stay for dinner and that he was not very enthusiastic about eating vegetables. On a back backing trip he brought nothing but junk food and Dinty Moore stew. I enjoyed coaching Scott on the YMCA basketball team for several years. Barb and Fred Munson"
"We will always remember Scott as the sweet little boy who would come home to play with Johnny after school. Michelle and Dan, we know what it is to lose a son, and share your heartache. We'll forever remember your dear child."
"Scott and I shared many interest and he was always a pleasure to have around. He was a great Uncle to my 2 children. Scott attended many of their athletic events and even video recorded some to share with us at a later date. I will miss him coming by to watch sports and sit in the hot tube. He will be missed by us."
"I never had the opportunity to spend much time with Scott but You could not forget that smile. When I look in his eyes I see Dan and Michelle and a little twinkle that reminds me of my Mom Nancy Diehl .
As someone who also suffered mental torments I am quit sure Nancy was right there when Scott passed to welcome him to his new serenity."
"Although I have not had the pleasure of meeting Scott personally, I have had the tremendous opportunity of getting to know Dan and Michelle briefly, yet profoundly. The love this couple and his family have for Scott provided, provides and will forever be an inspiration to others. Scott was indeed as fortunate to have his family in his life as were his family to have him in their lives."
"Though i didn't know Scott that well, but he was one of the nicest people i met here. We had really great time at the family reunion in Nebraska. He was a fun person to be around! its hard to believe that i will never see him again.
Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
where our loved ones
to let us know they
"Our dear son Scott was such a delight to our lives. I enjoyed going on our outings to the Denver Museum where we read every sign and looked at every animal or exhibit. We had only covered a small portion of it and I will miss his comments about the exhibits. I am happy that he is no longer suffering, though, and will sense his spirit with me when I next go to a museum."
"In a world so focused on materialism, Scott lived a life of minimalism. He's one of the most content people I have ever met. Even when he was hospitalized he was so strong and comforted my daughters by saying, "It will all be okay." We miss you, Scott!"
"Scott was a special nephew to me--always so thoughtful of others and helped whenever he could. I never heard Scott complain. Scott had the sweetest smile! I enjoyed the walks with Scott, Sebastian, Duke and I at the farm. Scott was always so patient with Duke. Scott's eyes sparkled when he told his fishing stories. When outdoors, I will feel Scott's spirit because he so loved nature."
"I was pleasantly surprised one Monday afternoon several weeks ago when out of the blue Scott called me up and asked if he come over to my house and watch Monday Night Football. Sometimes its so much more meaningful to get together at an unexpected time. Let's all take a cue from Scott and do that a little more often."
"Scott and have so many good memories. For the last several years, we always made a point to enjoy somethin interactive as a birthday gift. On a few occasions we played golf and this last year we went to see a Rockies game. I remember we found great seats from a scalper and enjoyed a Rockies win up close."
"Our whole family was so happy to have Scott come to the cabin this summer for the family reunion. I can still see Scott fishing in his khaki shorts, in-style shaggy long hair, with not a care in the world but catching a fish! Michele, Dan, and Scott stayed a day longer than others so we had a chance to visit. We sat on the picnic table talking and relaxing. Scott you will be missed very much!"
"I'm Scott's Aunt Deb. Scott spent Thanksgiving at our house this year. I am so thankful he did so enjoy my turkey dinner, and I enjoyed seeing him eat!! He told me it was good stuff. When he had a twinkle in his eye and a grin on his face, i often thought, he enjoys the simple things. With his difficult world, it was imperative to not expect too much."
"I also have wonderful memories growing up with Scott. Being only a little over a year apart in age, we were like twins. We did everything together. So many memories of our adventures in Stratton and Ord Nebraska where a kid can roam freely. Fun times in high school and in college. Hanging out at my house in Broomfield and trips to Nebraska to ride four wheelers. He will be dearly missed."
"I have wonderful memories of growing up with Scott. We spent countless hours together conquering and solving computer and Nintendo games together. He and I shared a love and curiosity of computers. We learned a lot together and carried that knowledge into our adult lives. Most importantly, we shared a very special evening at church where he stepped forward and gave his life to Christ."
Have a suggestion for us?
