My Heart Remembers Scott Weingard On 9/11

By Adam Pick on September 11, 2007

It still creeps up on me.

This day. The horrible memory of that phone call.

“We’re under attack… This is really, really bad. Turn on your TV now!!!”

Hours later, tears later, disbelief…

Then, I heard about Scottie, my fraternity brother. I just had to swallow.

Scottie was such an amazing person. He had such an incredible, contagious laugh. He was such a good guy. Such a great heart.

 

Scott Weingard

 

When I visit Ground Zero, I still believe his name will not be on that list.

But, it is… And, once again, I try to make sense of it all. Obviously, that doesn’t work.

Today, I’m wishing you well Scottie.

Hopefully, you and Larry are playing golf with the boys in NYC today.

Keep on tickin,

Adam

Hi Ari,

Thanks so much for writing and remembering Scotty.

That laugh. That funny headshake. That incredibly warm spirit.

Scotty is still with us today and every day.
