    Was a great person. Very outgoing spirit. Made everybody laugh. Was a good troop. And a soldier even through losing his legs. Run like the wind with God.

    Scooter! I can’t believe this has happened. It has been too long already cuz. Planned to catch up with you at Uncle Pete’s Memorial. You will be greatly missed. I will cherish the memories of our childhood and the new ones of once I met Jerry and we all already knew each other! You are gone too soon! We are supposed to become the crazy Rettstatt Elders! Just breaks my heart. Keeping your precious family in my prayers along with Aunt Linda and Tony. Love you Cuz!
