  7. Scott was best man at my marriage to Marvin D. Hart on 1974. They attended SENN High School before Scott moved on to Lane Tech.
    I met Scott in 1972 when Marv and I became a couple (Buddy!!!). I learned card games with them and Scott’s mom. When Janis joined this happy trio I was fascinated by her style and laughter. The two of us weren’t sure what kept these two guys together. So many memories. Marv passed away in 2010, so let the card games proceed! Thank you, Janis, for our friendship and love. Your care has benefited generations. I look forward to more memories!! Love from Kansas City! Thanks, Buddy..

  8. I miss you, Neener Neener. I love you, Big Guy. I think of you and I cry because you are not here but then laugh from the precious memories.
