We went to see you again this morning, your father and I and we laid some wild flowers on your grave. I know that you knew we were there I could feel you around me and I also know that you wished you could take away our pain but nothing will ever do that, but I know you wouldn't want for us to be sad ( you just wasn't that type of person. ) We even went over to see Granddaddy and I told him while you two were out fishing and having fun together to please not use the canoe because neither of you were small men and that I didn't want for y'all to tip it over lol and I asked Granddaddy to watch over you until we meet again. We LOVE and MISS you both so much.

I'm here to celebrate the smiles and good cheer Scooter brought to his friends. I met Scooter 20 years ago and I'll never forget our first meeting. I told that story to Sherrie a few days ago. She can share it with you and I hope she does. He got me good! It was (as I came to know) typical Scooter humor and I've never forgotten it. We got him back pretty good though, and Sherrie can tell you that story too :)

Scooter had a gift. He brought smiles, laughter and sparkle to everyone. It didn't matter if it was one person, or 100 people in a group. Everyone just felt better when Scooter was around.

I always knew that if I ever needed anything, anything at all, no matter how tiny or how big Scooter would move a mountain if he had to, to help me and he did a time or two. After a while, I realized i wasn't that special --because I came to see that he did these things for everybody.

Over 20 years of knowing Scooter, we spent thousands, millions of minutes talking on the back porch. We looked at the sky, the stars, stared into the chimnea fire and talked. About everything imaginable and then about lot of things unimaginable. We laughed so hard sometimes I would have tears. Scooter told me stories about his childhood, about how much his Granny and Grand-daddy meant to him and how important they were in his life. He told me lots of things and I just listened. And if you're thinking now, "I hope he didn't mention THAT"--he did. Some of his stories were remarkable and some were hard to hear. I just listened. I kept on listening and I never asked him to stop telling me things.

I asked myself, "What can I do, what can we do, to help this person shine in his own eyes, the way he shines in mine? " The answer was, "nothing." Because we were already doing it. Other people might ask the same question - but wait - I'm wrong. Some people can't ask themselves that question because they're afraid . Afraid of the answer which they already know... which is "everything."

Scooter was kind and generous, smart, funny and sensitive. I'm glad he was my friend. He is in God's hand now and he feels the Peace Which Passes All Understanding. I'm glad I knew him. Rest in peace Scooter Davis.

Scooter I am still at a loss for words which you never were. You brightened up every room you walked into. You have been apart of my families life for so long and I’m greatntful to have had the privilege of getting to know you. I will miss our conversations, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners but I will never forget the good times we had from the glitter to the drones we had some really funny moments. I will help look after Jenny as I know you loved her so much please know she will be on good hands. I don’t know if people meet up in the afterworld but if they do I hope to meet up with you. Love you and miss you!

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free


Scooter, I miss you so much and I have so many things I want to say to you, but My mind is flooded with memories. . I feel like the wind has been knocked from me and I can't catch my breath. Like that time you accidentally hit me with that rubber ball and knocked the wind out of me. I couldn't catch my breath and you kept saying, " you're okay. Please don't tell mom. You're okay please don't tell mom.". You were my protector, my best friend at times, and you taught me so many things, and reasoned with me when no one else could. I miss sneaking into your room and finding your sketches and doodles. And sneaking into your comic books. Watching you play video games and figuring out the next move before you could that day. You were so mad at contra. Lol. I'll never forget our forts and club houses we built. Bike ramps, tracks. Playing monopoly and using a dry erase marker because we didn't have houses or property cards. Hide and seek right after dark. All of our very many heart to heart conversations. I will carry you with me every day. I miss you so much scoot. Thanks for all the laughs, and for always being you exactly when I needed you the most. Aiden and I love you.

Scooter,
I am truly still in shock. I will miss all the fun times we had together hanging out in Florida. You crying in the car because you didn't want me to leave you to go to college. I will miss the time you lived with me and we almost killed each other. I remember the time Laverne smacked you in the back of the head for drinking your milk out of the cereal bowl. Laughing my butt off thinking to myself glad he drank his milk before I started to drink mine. I will miss the time we argued over you thinking it was a great idea to just randomly bring a rabbit and dropping it off in my living room without a cage. I know most of all that you loved me. No matter how much we bumped heads. I know this because you would tell me 5000 times especially after a few drinks. I love you and you will be remembered and missed.
Love always Pookie(Tammy)

Scooter, I didn't feel that my heart was ready or able to express how I truly feel right now. So I leave you with this poem. I will love and miss you always.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Scooter, you have the biggest heart of anyone I know, you loved everyone you met and they loved you back because your light shined so bright. You were generous, and kind, you were funny and smart, you loved animals and people the same. And you loved me like crazy, I hope you know I loved you the same. I hope you've met my Papa by now, and you've found Grandaddy, and Emma, and Cypress and you're all sitting together laughing and smiling. I love you the most. Jennifer
