"I've missed you every single moment since you went away, I would give ANYTHING just to see you on this Valentines Day." 
I miss you, Son!

Today is full of memories, happiness and tears
Of birthday celebrations shared throughout the years.
And tho I'll always miss you, the endless joy you brought
Warms my heart with gratitude and fills my every thought
Where ever you are resting, I hope that you can see
How precious and uplifting your memory is to me.
I feel that you are with me in everything I do
So I'll celebrate your birthday, but I'll spend it missing you. "Ma"

I was walking on our local trail. There was a plaque that had this poem which I really like and thought of Scott as I read it:
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Like time suspended, a wound and I
We had no ending, no said good-bye
For all my life, I'll wonder why.

I've lost a child I hear myself say and the person I'm talking to just turns away. Now why did I tell them, I don't understand; it wasn't for sympathy or to get a helping hand. I just want them to know I've lost something dear; I want them to know my child was here. My child left something behind which no one can see, if I 've upset you, I'm sorry as can be. You'll have to forgive me, I could not resist, I just want you to know that my child DID exist!  (Missing you, Scott.)
Posted by Lynda Hommel on August 27, 2015
For all you were to me in life and all the joy you brought, your memory is with me in every single thought.
The pain I felt in losing you will never go away, but knowing that you're in my heart helps me through each passing day.
When you were here, I always felt that nothing could go wrong, but you're still my inspiration and your memory keeps me strong.
And though my heart is heavy, it's also full of love and that's enough to comfort me while you're in Heaven up above.  Always your Ma...

Mother's Day, 2015
I have been blessed 4 times with amazing children. All different yet bonded by love of family. I hold tight to the memories of past Mother's Day when you were here but I must move forward for those who remain and show them the strength of a mother's love regardless of what is dealt in life. I love you dearly, Scott, and I would move Heaven and Earth if I could still have you with us, but sadly that can't happen. Thank you for honoring me this day for 35 years. I LOVE YOU!!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on April 19, 2015
A million times I've needed you
A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
No one else can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone
Part of me went with you
The day God took you home.

It's Easter, Son. Another holiday without you. There's no joy in the holidays anymore. Your leaving us has changed us all in so many ways. We miss you. We are still learning how to move forward, respecting the loss we feel, but having to continue to have a life with our family. I love you, miss you and will forever keep you in my heart.

Hi, Scott....I think about you often but don't know what to say as all my thoughts just stay in my head and we "talk" to each other. I don't know what to put on your tribute page. But you know that I am thinking of you. I want your mom know that I am thinking of you. Your mom loves and misses you so much. I wish I lived closer to be by her side when she needs that special extra hug and understanding. Just so you know, Scott, I love and miss you, too. We will be "talking" again soon..... Love, Aunt Jackie

The worst type of crying is the silent one. The one when everyone is asleep. The one where you feel it in your throat, and your eyes become blurry with tears. The one where you just want to scream! The one where you just have to hold your breath and grab your stomach to keep quiet. The one where you realize the person who meant so much to you is GONE!  This is my constant cry Son...I miss you so much!!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on November 4, 2014
Today would have been your 40th birthday. What a celebration it would have been if you were still with us!! So now we all remember in our own way, the person you were, the memories we've made, the love we had. Not one of us can judge you or know the darkness you felt, but we all feel the emptiness you left behind. You will forever be a part of each of us as we move on holding you in our hearts. I love you, Son. Happy Birthday!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on August 21, 2014
I still miss you, as the days and years pass
I still miss you, as the pain of grief softens
I still miss you, as new memories are made
I still miss you, as I smile and laugh
I still miss you, today and everyday

Your absence in my life is felt in every way, every day. I love you, Son!
Posted by Jackie Bennett on August 8, 2014
I think of you, Scott, all the time. Every time I pass etching pads at a store or anything artistic I think of the exceptional artistic talent you had. I was always in awe at your artistic ablity. You are truly loved and missed. You are always in my thoughts. I love you.
Posted by justin hommel on April 18, 2014
Well as of yesterday it's been 4 years without you bro. It just blows my mind that its been that long. I have been though so many things since you left us. I really wish that I still had you around to give me advice and to pick me up when I fall. I really wish tyler could of known you. I think he would of loved his uncle Scott a lot. I hope you got our balloons and messages we sent up to you yesterday. I love you bro and can't wait for the day I can see you again.
Posted by Lynda Hommel on April 17, 2014
I don't ever go thru a day without thinking of you or shedding tears. I hold you close in my heart and cherish memories of you. We all feel a deep loss still in your absence. There is so much you missed and so many things that would have been better if we could have shared them with you. Your daughters are amazing and we try to be there in your place, but honestly no one can replace a father's love. I pray you have the peace you must have sought. I love you son and miss you to the depths of my being! God bless you.

Brother-Your girls are with me this week. I am so happy to spend time with them. Trinity is so outgoing and has the best laugh. She reminds me of you in so many ways. Tristin is so loving and sweet. She wants me to carry her all the time! We are having a wonderful time. I call them the "Blonde Brigade" when they are hanging with Killian and Carleigh. Everyone thinks they are siblings. It is crazy how much our kids have turned out alike. I have moments with them that remind me of you and I as kids. That is a happiness unlike any other but always brings tears to my eyes. I mentioned that you used to love pistachio pudding and Trinity lit up and was like "Oh I HAVE to try that!" I will be making it for her this week. I think she just very much wants to hold on to any piece of you. It was odd mentioning you at first but I know they need to hear stories of you and they both love listening to tales of us as kids. I love you immensely. I thank you for my beautiful, wonderful nieces. I know I moved but I am still committed as I promised to you, to always being in their lives. I know you never meant to leave them. It s been hard to come to terms with that statement and without any proof- I now believe it. Peace brother.

Today is Valentine's Day, a day of love. I love you, Son! I love the memories you left behind that lift my spirits, bring a smile to me, and even the ones that cause tears to fall because it reaffirms that you were here and you left your imprint on my heart forever. We all miss you and send love to Heaven for you!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on February 3, 2014
Another year has started. Tyler just had his 3rd birthday. Soon Tristin will be 9! So hard to accept life goes on when it seems to have stopped in my heart. Heather moved to the Hill Country and now it seems like I've lost half of my family. I'm struggling to find a reason, a purpose for me to still be here. A day has yet to go by that I don't think of you and cry! I love you, Scott!!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on December 25, 2013
Christmas 2013--the holidays have arrived and still I feel your absence in every part of it. I've cried till no more tears will flow, but there is no way to remove the pain. I saw Trinity annd Tristin tonite. Both are so well-adjusted and getting tall. Wish you would have stayed here if only for them. I miss you, Son. Merry Christmas!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on November 28, 2013
Today is Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for the memories we created as they give me strength to go forward. I'm thankful for your girls, Trinity and Tristin who show me love regardless of how long it"s been since my last visit! Life is so different without you! Sometimes I just want to give up and stop but that's not fair to the rest of the family, so I go forward with heavy heart. I LOVE YOU SON!!

I thought of you this week. Easy enough to do since your birthday has been the day after Toni's. I just needed to say that I miss you. I know that your Mom especially is sad that you are gone. Just know that you have always been loved.
Posted by justin hommel on November 4, 2013
They say time heals all. Well I would have to say that's wrong. Seems like the more time that goes on the more pain I feel. I miss you so much bro. Everyday that passes I think about you. Even after 3 and a half years I just wish I would wake up and this was all a long horrible dream. I would give anything just for one day with you. Happy birthday bro! love ya!
Posted by Lynda Hommel on November 4, 2013
Another birthday, the 4th one without you. The day you were born was filled with so much love and pride! As you grew to be your own person, there were times of disappointment and some "not so happy with you" times, but the love was ALWAYS there and remains still. I am doing my best to cherish memories and keep you in my heart but it"s small steps, day by day. I miss you, Son!

Hi, Scott......I have been thinking alot about you lately. You were a very special nephew. I loved having you around. You always brought laughter and love into a room. You knew how to light up a room or anywhere else you were. I love you and miss you immensely. Until we meet again in Heaven.....Aunt Jackie
Posted by Kandy Foote on April 17, 2013
Thinking of you Scott. Remembering you...your smile, your gentleness. Until we meet again...... Love you!
Posted by Heather Williams on October 23, 2012
Brother, There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. It's been really hard on me not having you around. Losing you has changed so much inside me. I miss your hugs. I miss your laugh. I miss all the things we shared that only you and I really know. When I lost you I lost more than just a brother. More than anything I wish I could have helped. Love always, your Sis

Scott had a nature you could not help loving and a heart that was purer than gold. And to those who knew him and loved him; his memory will never grow cold. Scott, I will love and remember you always, I love you, Scott   Aunt Jackie
Posted by Kandy Foote on November 13, 2011
Unfortunately, we lived hundreds of miles apart. There was a time when he was much younger that I remember Scott very well. His smile was wonderful! He had a gentle spirit. His art was also amazing. We always expected to be able to see him and his family at some point in time. Now we will have to wait until we get to heaven to see him. Scott will be missed!
Posted by Debbie Ward on November 7, 2011
I will forever remember your beautiful smile, your amazing talent, your sweet spirit and your generous heart! Your time here was too short it seems for us left behind, however our memories of you give great comfort.  We miss you, Scotty!!

Love Lives On
Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
far as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.

Death leaves a heartache
no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no
one can steal
I Love and miss you greatly ! Scott

There is always a face before me,
A voice I would love to hear,
A smile I will always remember,
Of a brother I loved so dear.
Deep in my heart lies a picture,
More precious than silver or gold,
It's a picture of my brother,
Whose memory will never grow old

Your mom, she loves you more than words can say and its hard to for her to let her baby go... but I know that you are with her through spirt. Your sadly missed by everyone! I can't wait to meet you someday! I love you Scott!

Uncle Scott!!
I never really met you before you passed, but I hear that you were a really good person! I really dont understand why they dont give us more room to write.. But I had understood that you really like drawling, I'm sorry I didnt get there to meet you. I'm sure we would have hit it off great. It so sad that you had to leave this world so
Posted by Ed Hommel on November 4, 2011

Son, the day you were born my whole world lit up and I was filled with love! You amazed me with your life and I felt much pride. You became my "Shining Star." You were so artistic. You gave me 2 beautiful granddaughters. Then on April 17, 2010 my life was shattered! I'm left with "why?"and unending grief. I love and miss you forever. Love, Mom

New Year's Day, 2021
Everyone seems to think life will change for the better now that 2020 is over. We still have a way to go and soon we will adjust to new leadership with Pres. Joe Biden. My life, regardless, has settled into a waiting game. There's not much for me to do in life. I try to interact with family and get them to do the same, but everyone is too busy and unconcerned. I am very aware of your absence and I know I will feel it for the remainder of my life. I miss you. I miss the me I used to be. I miss the granddaughters you gave me. I hold tight to what was and am sad for what would have been. I send love and prayers to Heaven for you and pray you will send signs to me that let me know you are near. Here's to another year of adjustment without you. Forever my shining star. I love you, Scott. "Ma"

It's Christmas Eve, 2020
This has been a terrible year for so many because of covid-19. Luckily none of our family have suffered health-wise, but there have been many who have had a tough time financially and work-wise. It's still not over. This could last into 2021!
Holidays have been affected. Families are asked to not gather. Money for gifts is tight. There's more families then ever who need help with food. It's sad. And when there are so many family members and friends already passed, my heart is full of sadness. I miss you, Son. No amount of time will ever fill the void you left. I hope you can send me signs that you are near and help me smile when I notice them. You are in my daily prayers and tucked away in my heart. I love you! Merry Christmas. You are so blessed to be there with God. You are still my "shining star ".        "Ma"

This year I came to spend Thanksgiving with Justin and his new wife, Kayla. The food they made was delightful. We watched the Texans beat the Lions. J lives only a few miles from Ed now, so I also got to see him. I got Thanksgiving wishes from your girls. Heather is having her dinner tomorrow with Ashley and her family. I will stay here until next Sunday. Covid 19 has changed the holiday alot. We still have months ahead of dealing with it. The one thing that hasn't changed is feeling your absence. I love you, Son and will forever miss you and hold you in my heart.  "Ma"

March 2020
The world has been hit by the corona virus (covid-19) and we are all to be self-quarantined.  This could be weeks or longer before it is safe to go back to work, interact with people and have some normalcy again. So many things are closed:  schools, malls, restaurants, colleges, bars, beaches, theatres.  Supplies, food and water are scarce and over-priced.  So many people have lost their jobs which means no income, no money to pay bills, rent, etc.  Some don't even know if there will be a job to go back to.  Seniors are going to miss making memories, prom, etc.  Trinity can't show her pig, go to prom or go on her planned trip this summer to Dominican Republic!  It's bad everywhere and we don't know how much worse it will get or for how long.  I truly believe the only way out is through belief and prayer to God.  We took God out of so much of our life there is no protection for us.  I am praying for myself, my family and friends, our nation and all unbelievers.  GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

2019 Trip Home

Shared by Lynda Hommel on August 8, 2019
It has been 24 years since I was home in Pa.  Thanks to my amazing daughter, your sister, she and I are going for a visit Aug 9-13th.  Aunt Debbie/ Rik are going to be there Aug 8-14th.. I hope to surprise her for an early bday gift as they don't know we are coming.  
They held off having The Bennett Reunion till we get there so we will be able to see extended family as well.  I have some things I hope to do while we are there, but it all depends on time.  First thing is to get Hank's Frozen Custard!!  I also want to visit the cemetary, go see Aunt Judy/Uncle Howard and if we can fit it in, go to Conneaut Lake Park to walk around and eat their fries with malt vinegar.  But my main thing is to spend as much time with family as possible because this will be my last trip home.

The Big Decision

Shared by Lynda Hommel on March 26, 2019

Hey, Son after 15 and a half years, I quit Big Lots!!  I have moved to New Braunfels to be with Heather and her family.  So far there has been pros 'n cons for me, but I really think it's a good decision.  The hardest parts of the move are leaving Justin behind although he's doing the best he's done ever and he is allowing himself to be happy, also not having a weekly paycheck to help with bills and necessities is just plain scary.  I don't want to be dependent on Heather for my needs.  I have managed to put aside some money, but I don't want it to run out before my life does.  Now I can go to your memorial site more and maintain it and add to it.  Gotta learn how to get there on my own tho.  Gotta find a life purpose now so I don't fall into depression.  I love you and I will never stop missing you and will forever carry you in my heart.    Love, "Ma"
