    To the family and friends, of Scott, I give my deepest sympathy. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I attended High school with Scott, as well as socialized with him much as kids. He was a wonderful childhood friend that grew with me into adulthood. He taught me to ride a skate board and he laughed with me when I fell. I will greatly miss him and his wonderful smile. If you need anything don’t hesitate to call or look around the corner.

    With much Love, Compassion,
    and Friendship Always.

    I want to send my thanks and appreciation to everyone for their warmth and blessings regarding the passing of my little brother. Scott was my second half and I miss him terribly. He was my strength when I was weak and I was his. He was the sunshine that could cheer up a saddened room. Scott was a strong person and he was such a funny guy. I don’t have any childhood memories that exclude him. My comfort is knowing that Scott is with God and that he is looking down at us and smiling right now, probably saying some sarcastic comment. So think back and remember the great times that you shared with him and celebrate those times, he wouldn’t want you to be sad he would want you to tell jokes. I love you all ~Sharri

      My condolences to the family. It is always shocking to hear of such news, though the recollections are in mourning i can’t help but smile in fond memory. We had many laughs growing up, and most were the result of his antics. Rest In Peace Scott.

    It’s true…. the only way to get through this is family..and man do we have the best of the best in that category… Scott my beautiful cousin I love you and miss you sooo much…it breaks my heart because I ride..and now I am afraid to ride past my mother and aunts house or get on my bike for that mattter… I love you and will never forget could I?? I remember when aunt judy gave my mom your bed.. how I was a girl and you obviously were not….so I had to peel 4 million star wars stickers off of the bed…lol or when you came home a couple years ago I was so amazed to see you…we talked forever and caught up and we couldn’t believe how much we had in common… I LOVE YOU!!!!!

  • Tom Sherry Posted August 19, 2008 8:39 PM

    I would like to express our sympathy for the loss of Scott. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    I met Scott at Madill Elementary and we were very good friends in our younger years. His mother always used to correct me when I called her Mrs. Ormsbee (not Mrs. Newtown). I will cherish many fond memories and regret the fact that we never stayed in touch.
    With Sympathy,
    Tom Sherry

  • Patrick Cavanaugh Posted August 19, 2008 9:34 PM

    Please accept our deepest sympathies and prayers as you try to heal from your loss. Scott was a classmate of mine at OFA and though we did not keep in touch…his infectious smile was still in my memeory when I heard the news. He will surely be missed.

  • Kamie Flavin Posted August 19, 2008 9:49 PM

    Sharri,Judy,Tom,Rich,Lisa & famailies–
    Where to even start…I remember when you moved in across the road from my Gram Milly and Grandpa/Grandma Murphy. Scott and I were in class at Madill School, while Sharri and I became friends. Scott use to pick on me while we were growing up. He always hada smileon his face…I never knew what he was up to…planning his next attack on me or just being friendly. Scott youwill be truly missed!!!

  • arlene bush Posted August 19, 2008 10:19 PM

    i just wanted to stop by and say that all of you are in my payers. a time like this is always hard. keep your heads up.

  • Chris Addison Posted August 19, 2008 11:01 PM

    I don’t even know where to start… it’s been a rough year for me losing Spencer, and now this… Well, here goes. Scott was my best friend for years. As a person, I admired him so much. He was fearless, funny, unique, talented, strong, and sincere… he wore his heart on his sleeve and was honest sometimes to a fault. He inspired me to be the best at everything I could do, because that’s how he rolled… there was no inbetween for Scott. When we first started our band with Kevin, Scott was the guy who really jump started us into something we never thought we could be… the guy never touched a drumstick in his life, and within a year was JAMMING Misfits, DK, DRI, and Descendents songs like they were his. He picked up a skateboard and within a year was outskating EVERYONE in the Burg. He was an unbelievably talented person, and in my opinion, never got the credit he deserved… the little punk kids of Ogdensburg owe Scotty Bosebee a huge thank you for paving their way.

    I could go on forever here… his laugh, his smile, the way he used to habitually tug on his shirt collar until they were soiled and torn (some nervous twitch he developed because he was so high strung), his natural comedic sensibilities, his fearlessness and the way he would do ANYTHING anyone asked him to do, and our late nights talking about family and problems and sometimes crying together… the last few days have sent me into a sleepless memory recovery mode that has brought back so much, each memory making things a bit harder…

    Anyway… the last time I saw Scott, he was recovering from a snow related accident that he had in Virgina. Spencer and I were home visiting from California and went over to visit him to try to cheer him up… he laughed at us being idiots, only causing himself more pain, but I could tell how much it meant to him that we were there. When I left that day, I thought about how close I came to losing such a good friend, and promised myself that I wouldn’t make that mistake again… well, life got the best of me, and I’m ashamed to say that never happened.

    I wish I could hang out with you one more time Scotty. I wish I could check in and see how you are doing and I wish we could talk about the horrible music we played and take a swim off the pier and sneak a beer out of my dad’s cooler, and sit on your porch and talk about stupid crap the way we used to…

    I love you brother, and I will see you on the other side. You’re part of the reason why I am the person I am today, and I can do nothing but thank you and am PROUD to have been your friend.

    Judy, Tom, Ritchie, Sharri, and family… take care, and I’ll stop by to visit when I come home in September.

  • BobbieJean Flavin McCarthy Posted August 20, 2008 1:47 AM

    With deepest sympathy to your entire family…we will keep you all in our prayers.

  • Mike LaRose Posted August 20, 2008 1:48 AM

    To the Ormsbee Family,

    I can’t iterate enough what Chris said about Scott. We had many good times together and the best part is that we will never forget them. Scott was a good friend and will never be forgotten. My best to you during this hard time.

  • Jillian Posted August 20, 2008 3:38 PM

    Sha-la-la-la-la You used to call me your angel
    Said I was sent straight down from Heaven
    You’d hold me close in your arms
    I loved the way you felt so strong
    I never wanted you to leave
    I wanted you to stay here holding me
    I miss you, I miss your smile
    And I still she’d a tear every once and a while
    And even though it’s different now
    You’re still here somehow
    My heart won’t let you go, and I need you to know
    I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you
    You used to call me your dreamer
    And now I’m livin’ out my dream
    Oh how I wish you could see
    Everything that’s happening for me
    I’m thinking back on the past
    It’s true that time is flying by too fast
    I miss you, I miss your smile
    And I still she’d a tear every once and a while
    And even though it’s different now
    You’re still here somehow
    My heart won’t let you go, and I need you to know
    I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you
    I know your in a better place,
    But I wish that I could see your face
    I know you are where you need to be
    Even though it’s not here with me
    I miss you, I miss your smile
    And I still she’d a tear every once and a while
    And even though it’s different now
    You’re still here somehow
    My heart won’t let you go, and I need you to know
    I miss you, sha-la la la la
    I miss you, I miss your smile
    And I still she’d a tear every once and a while
    And even though it’s different now
    You’re still here somehow
    My heart won’t let you go, and I need you to know
    I miss you, sha-la la la la, I miss you

    Our thoughts and prayres are with you during this difficult time, may Scotts smile be the sunshine that can warm you during this sad time.

  • Susan Ormsbee Posted August 20, 2008 5:17 PM

    “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
    When someone is in your life for a REASON… It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
    They may seem like a godsend, and they are!
    They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
    Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. Sometimes they die.
    What we must realize is that our need had been met. Our desire fulfilled, their work is done. Your need has been answered, and now it is time to move on.
    When people come into your life for a SEASON it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
    They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
    Believe it! It is real! But only for a season.
    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.”
    *Scott has touched so many people’s lives in so many different ways, he will continue to live on in our hearts and our memories forever. Scott had the most charming personality that would just envelop you. He had a golden touch; everything he attempted or put his mind to doing he did, and did it near perfect! He was always there for a friend. I’m just thankful that I got to spend a part of my life with him. I can’t imagine never having had him in my life, the times and experiences we shared; my life, I, would not be the same if not for this absolutely wonderful person. Scott, I have always loved you and always will, you will always be in my heart and I wish you eternal peace. And may peace also be with those whose lives you have touched.*

    Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers as you try to heal from your loss. I never got to meet Scott but I heard wonderful things about him from my son. He was teaching Jayson to play the guitar and he would always mention the afternoon motorcycle rides they would take. He was truely a blessing in my son’s life and he will be missed. We will always have a special place in our hearts for the way he touched our lives. May God bless your family in this difficult time.

  • Terra Rapin Posted August 21, 2008 1:35 PM

    We put you to rest today…it was so nice to see the whole family together..we miss you sooo terribly..every waking day your going to be on our minds and when tom was saying at the cemetery that if you were standing there with us you would be thinking of how great of a day it was and that you would rather be playing golf…it was so ironic cuz i looked into the sky and right when he said you were here with us in spirit the wind blew…so i went and laid by the pool afterwards by myself and the wind blew.. for some reason i have a feeling that it was you, and that it will continue to be you. I LOVE YOU SCOTT!!!! I love our whole family and I dont think that we see enough of each other!! There goes the wind’s you i know it!..I’ll right you often…LOVE YOU FOREVER~~Kari

  • Rhonda Powers Canipe Posted August 22, 2008 6:48 PM

  • Nicole Renne Posted August 24, 2008 8:58 PM

    It’s fair to say that expressing condolence and sympathy is challenging at best. Having the words to say during these times is very difficult. Sometimes words can feel like a small and almost trivial gesture for such a huge, life-altering event in someone’s life. Hence why it has taken me so long to write something here. And since words are all I have to offer; here goes…Scott was a special boy. I’m sure he was one of your most greatest blessings in this life, giving you more than you had ever dreamed. I’m thankful that I was just one of many who were able to share in knowing him and loving him. I had not seen Scott in many years but remember him like it was yesterday. There are so many qualities that Scott had, they are far too numerous to recount. His smile as a young boy is what I will choose to remember most. I believe that Scott walks with God and that he will always be with each and every one of us in his own special way. He will always be with you, as you will always be with him. This is a time of sorrow, but memories of Scott will always make our hearts smile. We all felt him in the wind, as we stood at his resting place. That was him letting you know he is still with you. I know that words, however kind, can’t mend your heartache, but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends. We remember with you…the life of someone so dear.

    My deepest thoughts and prayers are with you from my family to yours. My the Lord give you strength and peace in this difficult time.

  • Ruth Cofer Posted September 11, 2008 1:03 PM

    Last night Sept 10th, Scott was again honored in Florida. I worked with Scott at the golf course where he was loved by all. I will remember the days I needed a smile and he always had one to give, or a kind word or more likely something silly to say to make you smile. I remember his excitement when he closed on his house, so proud! The days he would tell me what he had done to fix his house up. The love he had for life. I will truly miss his smiling face!! My prayers are with you.

    He still is my best friend and always will be, I miss you Scott just as much as yesterday. Just don’t get it. and never will…. Scott really helped me maintain a normal life with all of the chaos that goes on in this world. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for that man.
