I have created this request to help our boys Haydn and Mason Neese help pay for the cost that comes with laying their father to rest. Scott did not have life insurance to help the boys and the family with this unexpected cost. Our sons have an excellent family and friends support system to help them through this emotionally hard time and could really use the same support financially. Haydn is doing a great job finding his way out on his own. Mason is still finishing his schooling and working part time. Obviously neither are in a place in their young lives to help with the cost incurred. Scott and I are so proud of them and their goals and accomplishments, but they are just not in a place yet where they can help in a way they would like to.
I know it hurt, bothered and worried Scott to think of the burden his bladder cancer diagnosis would put on his boys and family if he didn't beat it. Therefore he fought a hero's battle for 3 long hard months, not only for that reason but because he just wasn't ready to go. In the end he accepted that God had a different plan for him and decided to peaceful go surrounded with the love of his boys and family on Aug. 18th at Freeman ICU. He is no longer in a miserable condition fighting constant pain and he has no more worries. He is in heaven playing his music God gave him the wonderful gift to play. The talent he took great pride in passing on to his boys. He could flawlessly play so many different instruments. He is learning to play even more instruments as you read, the banjo is first I just know it(he always talked about wanting to learn).
He, his music and wit were priceless, and are missed so much already. Our lives will not be the same with such a big loss. We all look forward to seeing him again and being wowed by his expanded talent and beautiful music as well as him making us laugh till we cry.
So please if you feel moved to do so, make a donation to help our boys and his wonderful family. All funds received will be a blessing and very appreciated.
