Scott Greer’s passing big loss for Bent River
I was working on a letter to the editor regarding “federal budget planning.”
But my thoughts were elsewhere.
Today my family and I attended a church service in Windermere for Scott Greer. Scott passed away a few days ago.
We are saddened by his passing.
I hadn’t known Scott for 20 or 30 years like so may others attending the service.
When I first meet Scott several years ago it was at the Bent River Historical Hall, a little red school house in BentRiver, built in 1912. Members of the local community were just forming an association to look after the little red school house. It was being passed from the Women’s Institute to the Bent River Historical Hall Association.
Scott had a great smile. The first time I met him he was with his parents, Grant and Iris Greer. His parents attended school through all the grades right there in that one room red school house.
Scott’s smile is what I will always remember about him, but not just that. I learned that Scott from an early age had faced some very difficult medical problems through out his life and beat every one, every time.
I came to realize I hadn’t met someone with just a great smile, I had met someone with great strength. Not from lifting weight or from working a hard job, but a strength that came from lifting himself through great trials and tribulations.
‘Scott, I know you made it through the pearly gates. I would be honored to see your smile again – if I am so lucky to pass through.
