Scott, you will be greatly missed. I will always cherish the love you gave, so unconditionally. I always enjoyed our greetings to and for each other, "cuz"!! Its funny how my grandmother on moms side was a Carpenter, but we were related on my dad's side. It was always a pleasure seeing you at Bill and Dr. Bob's place, as well as Jimmy K.'s place !! I will always remember you and Terry help me celebrate a special time in my life a couple years ago. Your were truly gifted by God, with both intellect, and a superior physical prowess. I always looked up to your athletic achievements and thought "if only I could be so blessed"! God blesses us each uniquely in His perfect way. My prayers go out to your mom and dad and Terri and Mark. I will always love you, cuz. Matthew Rhett Braithwaite

Mr. & Mrs. Carpenter, Terry & Family, I graduated with Scott at Handley. He was a great person and an athlete that I always admired. We grew up playing baseball together and a fond memory that I recall, was that we played on a special Baseball All Star Team together in a tournament in Petersburg, VA. After we graduated we lost contact with each other and I had not seen him for years until he came to comfort me and my family at my Brother's Memorial service last year. Scott was a very kind and caring person. He will be missed by us all. May god bless you all. Don Blankenship

Terry, I was so sorry to hear about Scott. I don't know if you remember me, but I was one of the Lofton girls who lived down the street from your family, at 115 Whitlock Ave. Scott was one of my first buddies. I remember many happy days spent in your front yard playing with Scott when we were younger. I also remember you teaching my sister Debbie and I how to twirl batons, and how to do some cheerleading jumps. Even when we got to those awkward early teen years, Scott was always good for a smile and a hello as we walked through Handley's hallways in 6th and 8th grade (before the junior high was completed). I went to school with Scott from 1st to 8th grade, and then my family moved to Allenwood PA. Even though we moved away, I often think about my childhood friends in Winchester. Please tell your family that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Donna (Lofton) Cerrone

I started a group on facebook in your memory today. Its called "I NEED A MIRACLE". The purpose is for others who don't believe they have enough strength to heal or for others that lost faith in God temporarily and feel alone to "Post and reach out for a MIRACLE". They will have faith in others during difficult times when they are falling apart. Its to help others feel they are not so ALONE, and to show them that people are thinking of them and praying for them. In your memory my precious you are healing others from today and for eternity. Your spirit lives on. I love you! Love, Cindy

John Sveta posted something on your Wall and wrote: "Scott Carpenter was an original. He was an athlete at Handley High School (Class of 1978) where he played QB. He proudly showed me a statistic in 1993 where he still led all Handley QB's... in interceptions! (I figured he must have started young and had a long career). He was also a cheerleader at Shippensburg State. I met him when he was a racquetball pro at Kings Court, living on Amherst Street with his bright red Fierro parked outside. Scott was a whiz in chemistry and worked at the old Technicon (Bayer) plant in Middletown in the Biomedical Industry and pursued graduate work in Hematology at George Mason. I used to visit him at his Orchard Hill townhouse where he spent most of his time in the basement with his computer. He must have been proficient at it because he left the field of biochemistry to accept a lucrative position with the Family (?) Dollar company. I will remember Scott for his humor, intelligence, kindness,

My Precious Scott, "In God's Time not Ours" I love you more than life itself .You were the most loving sensitive person I have known. Considerate and kind, and ALWAYS a charming gentleman which leads me to believe your parents and Terry did an excellent job raising you. So they are to be honored for having given you so very much love and guidance to be the man you were and they are just as special as you are. That is truly something to be proud of. You have a radiant heart, soul and spirit that shines so bright it touches everyone who has the honor to have known you. I know that your heart, spirit and soul will be a part of me and those you touched forever, and that you will shine for eternity. I couldn't see it any other way! You had a charming loving presence that was so very delightful and refreshing and may I add rare. Your a compassionate person and a great listener and have added so very much joy to all who have known you. I know you have made a difference in mine. How do I say goodbye to my best friend? My friend who has listened to me for hours on end, for years, no matter what I had to say only to end up finding loving supportive beautiful things to say to make me feel better? How do I say goodbye to my research buddy who I talked to for 4 hours at a time just about biochemical diseases processes and every other scientific topic in the world, and who just would listen to me when I pour my heart out about how I need to find answers to how I can help my patients, while i'm falling asleep at the computer till 4 am, and your on the phone with me giving input and sharing some quick witted humor in between to break the monotany. You helped me help my patients. You always cared. Our shared love of athletic, animals, children, and family.. How do I say goodbye to someone I "saved everything" that happens in my day to only share with you?.Someone who I can't wait to tell things to and who I can't keep a secret from? Lately hasn't been many free momments due to work. This breaks my heart! It didn't matter what we spoke about, there was always a balance of intillectual stimulation, fun and love. How do I say goodbye if saying goodbye means loosing the one you love? I am sure it will take time for me to learn to live without you. It will not be the same. As I have always told you we have to find beauty in the dark side, the uncomfortable and truamatic times so that our experience leaves us changed for the better and so we can grow and become stronger. Our goal being an "Open HEART" with no resentments. I find beauty in having known you and from sharing so very much with you my love. The journey was well worth the pain. This lead me to the dedication of the song by Garth Brook "THE DANCE" for you my precious love. Forever and always in my heart. You are a miracle and I believe in Miracles. And i'm sorry if i'm not ready to say goodbye. I'm sorry it was your time to pass on to a better place. I pray for the angel to keep you safe as I always have and I miss you so terribly it aches my heart. I love you Scott. Love Cindy

Scott Carpenter you were the sweetest, kindest, most loving individual I have ever had the pleasure of calling my best friend. Scott, you have been there for me forever, in good times and bad....you helped me through everything.....illnesses and personal hardships. You and Terri have given me the best times of my life. You have laughed and cried with me or just a hug would do. I love you Scott and this is not "Good bye". You will be in my heart forever. Love, Julie Bragg Lee
