In Memoriam: Robert Bruce Warren Scott

I lost a dear friend recently. Robert Scott was a good man with a big heart. I first met him when he began teaching my son to play the bagpipes. I found that he was a man of many talents and interests and a father who loved his son deeply. I witnessed his pride at his son's military service and his anxiety when his son was serving in Iraq. I saw his kindness to my son as he taught him not only how to play the bagpipes, but how to take care of them and about the Scottish culture that he loved so much. He was an early supporter of my political career and helped me immensely by creating my campaign website and introducing me to the blog that you are reading right now. He contributed his deep, strong voice to my son's Eagle Project as narrator of his video on the Medal of Honor Museum. I didn't learn of his passing until I returned from our vacation and unfortunately missed his memorial service. He was a fine man and I will miss his friendship. I offer my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Here is a link to his obituary in the Chattanoogan with info on ways to honor Bob's memory. Rest in peace my friend.
