Scott Bart's Guestbook

Well, Scott, I finally opened your package that you ordered just before that faithful day. Of course, it was the Phantom Menace of Star Wars. Who else, to watch the movie with but your two nephews, Kyle and Jayden. I know I said I would watch it with Scott but I'm sure Scott would approve of the two that watched it with me.

Every year at my job we handle the vote reporting on the annual meetings of over 2,000 public companies and mutual funds. Every time I see the information for Marsh & McLennan (one of our clients) come through my inbox I of course immediately think of Scott. Now it's very likely that at this point in time Scott may have moved on to even bigger and better opportunities at another firm, but I sometimes like to think of the conversations we may have had. I know Scott would have been very interested to learn of our processes and how we handle the voting for Marsh, and I'm sure it would have led to a very cool learning experience for both of us. Scott always took such a genuine interest in the lives of others and was energized by learning as much as he possibly could. What a wonderful disposition to have and such a great example of what to strive towards. Thank you Scott for the private conversations and the life lessons. All these years on and a single thought of you can change my outlook in such a positive way. Missing you as always, love you cousin.

Anthony

A new park bench has been installed at the Westwood Park in Malverne, N.Y. Scott loved to play at this park during his younger years and is only fitting to have a bench placed there honoring his name.

As I was called upon as the "older cousin" to assist one of my younger cousins who got into trouble recently, I'm reminded of how wonderful Scott is. It's really amazing how much he showed his love through the time he took to talk to me during some very difficult times in my life. First the cigarettes, then... But Scott was always there for me. When the going would get tough at home due to other circumstances, Scott would have chats with me about opportunities and options that could help me through the challenges. He always cared. It's hard to believe I've become to my cousin what Scott is to me, but I do my best to emulate his dedication to family and willingness to truly be there when it's needed. Thank you for the advice, thank you for caring and thank you for being there when it all went haywire. It really meant the world. Love you cousin and all of my Bart family. You're all the best.

Scott, thinking about you a lot at this time of year, though you are in my thoughts often. A few weeks ago I saw Billy Joel at Wrigley - 3rd row!!! You were there... I couldn't stop thinking of you - every song had a memory of Oswego or visiting your house/the city in the couple of years after you graduated (and I was still there). I couldn't help but smile, and tear up, thinking about you and how much fun we would have if you were actually there with me! You were always a good friend... too many times to count, your honesty (another favorite BIlly Joel song), advice, humor, and listening ear got me through a lot of challenging situations. if only I had followed your advice!!! I could have used your friendship this last couple of years...but funny, I feel that it's been with me the whole time. Thanks! miss you!!!!

It has been 14 years since our Scott was stolen physically from us. Throughout these years he has never really left us. As my nephew, Anthony, so well stated, our Scott has always been with us. My grandson, Nick, who isn't much for walking, is certainly a climber. He apparently climbed up onto to the couch and then over the back of the couch and then ouch, as he fell. Besides a little bump, he was fine. It appears he is following in his uncle's footsteps. Scott at his age, also climbed out of his crib early one morning. Climbed down the stairs to the kitchen, pushed a chair to the stove, and then climbed up the chair onto to the stove. When we awoke, besides panic because he wasn't in his crib. Then to panic again, seeing him sitting on top of the kitchen stove. Fortunately, he didn't turn any of the controls on. So, it appears that Nick is emulating his uncle Scott.

Thinking about Scott today and this entire week. I was sharing stories about Scott with my younger colleagues. At such a young age, Scott was an extraordinary leader. I often think about how he would handle things as a leader and wishing I could still call him.

I do not know you, but I know your family. If they are any indication of the kind of person you are, you will truly be missed. God bless you and your family.

3 Memories of Scott that make me smile:

1) Sleepovers in his house in 7th and 8th grade with Kenny Ruchala, Cormac Miller, Scott Goldberg, and Eddie Alvarez where we consumed illegal amounts of Jolt Cola and Doritos. I'm sure James has copies of the Huey Lewis and the News music video that we made in the Barts' basement.

2) Making Jack London's "Call of the Wild" video book report with Wendy Marcone for Ms. Lenet's English class. Production time was vastly underestimated as Wendy and I couldn't stop laughing. Scott's impersonation of a grandmother reading a bedtime story just slayed us.

3) (Sorry to Danny and Nancy for this one) Scott making a diagram of the placement of every single Precious Moments figurine in the Bart's living room prior to high school "gatherings& quot;. I would guess that there were probably 50-75 of the miniature statues and Scott would have estimated the value of them to be in the $150K to $200K range to justify his hairbrained scheme. Scott would remove said figurines for fear that they would be damaged which would lead to an unfathomable grounding. They were always returned to their exact location the next morning and Scott always made it through unscathed.

This day is always tough, but it always helps to incorporate some smiles with the tears. Scott, you are loved and missed buddy.
