Scott Charles Carter
Scott was always one of those children who had a smile on his face. He loved music and loved jamin' to the beat. He was a very smart little dude too.
I remember when he was about 2, Scott had locked himself in the bathroom. Luckily, my parents were visiting. I tried to get Scott to unlock the door, but for some reason, it was stuck, and he could not unlock it. We had to wind up taking the doorknob off, and the door was still stuck.
I really don't remember the details, but I do remember having to give Scott a tool of some sort, and my dad talking him through fixing the problem. Scott was so calm, and did exactly as he was told. Soon, he was rescued!
I remember another time; Scott had had a really bad eye infection, and wound up in the hospital for a week. He had to have eye surgery to drain off the infection. Scott was turning 4 the next week, so he was pretty young. He was such a good little patient; never complained. Whenever they had to take any blood for lab, he never said a word. He was very popular with the nurses.
Well, Scott is all grown up now, and away at college...we sure miss his smiling face around here...
