Thank you Paul. This one was, for whatever reason, so very hard. But I’ve talked and written about him on medium before, so I wanted readers to have a more accurate picture of him. Scott wasn’t a tragic figure; he was, like all of us, a complicated, nuanced human being. Many-layered, oft challenged, but at his core, a beautiful soul. Maybe why that is why this was so hard and I was so eager to publish: I wanted to convey his funny, foul, heart and soul. The heart and soul I miss so very much. The person I wish desperately that I could hear on the other end of the phone: to lament and cry, yes, but to celebrate and laugh and love. Writing it, about that deep loss, made it even more acute.
