On 11/11/11 some of us went to the James River to spread the ashes of our friend, Scott. In May he chose to take his own life. We are very sad that he has left us, but we are thankful that he is no longer in pain.
R.I.P. Scottie, you will be missed ♥
From the Richmond Times-Dispatch on July 3, 2011:
SOTA, Scott Randolph, 29, departed this life May 28, 2011. He was predeceased by his mother, Cheryl Bailey; and grandfather, Wilmore Bailey. He is survived by his half-sister, Teri Sota Gottstein; niece, Debbie Mador; and a family of friends. Scott was born in Chicago, but considered Richmond his home. He attended Thomas Jefferson High School, where he participated in the Japanese program. He attended Earlham College in Indiana. He played in the band Nulla. He never turned down an opportunity to pick up a guitar. He loved his pitbulls. He was a friend of Bill W. He was a loving son, best friend to many and a hard worker. His inimitable sense of humor, big heart, and beautiful smile will be missed. You have touched many lives, Scott, and we love you so much. Memorial will be July 10, at 10 a.m. at the James River.
