So sorry... Scott you were soooo loved and will be dearly missed.  Looks like 
all those CT children needed a bigger ANGEL to be with them today.  God bless 
you and keep you! Love you SCOTT.

To all my NFB friends I know how dear Scott was to you, my prayers are with you 
all for comfort, peace and lasting memories of what a great man Scott Young 
was.  Let us all take a bit of Scott with us on our journey's and pray we can be 
influenced by all that he has taught us.
 Thank you, 

Kathy Ungaro

Subject: The Passing of Our Dear Friend Scott Young

It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell all of you about the passing of 
our dear friend and colleague, Scott Young of Tennessee. In recent days, Scott 
checked into the hospital. As most of you know, Scott was a brittle diabetic. As 
I understand it, Scott went into the hospital a few days ago. At first it seemed 
like a bad cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, etc. However, it was quickly determined 
that a number of other complications to his diabetes were intensifying. His 
family was at his bedside during the last couple of days. NABM First Vice 
President Kim Williams, NFBEI Director Terry Smith and our member Melissa Smith 
were with Scott yesterday. 

This is a very difficult note for me to write as Scott has been much more than 
one of our leaders. He was much more than a very effective businessman. Scott 
was always ready to carry more than his share of the load. He was one of our 
heroes, but often his humility meant that he was one of our unsung heroes. He 
simply got the work done. He exemplified what we all should be doing. He always 
had the greatest relationships with his legislators. He was often the one that 
led the charge in the face of legislative challenges to opportunities for the 
blind. But, for me personally, more than all of those things, he had been a 
supporter, a dear friend and an example of class, honor, integrity and dignity. 
Scott had battled monumental health issues for many years, and yet it can truly 
be said that his indomitable spirit and love, which in his case came from his 
Christian faith, made him one of our quiet leaders and contributors. It occurs 
to me that one way to understand Scott would be this phrase: He was always there 
to help. Many of us talk, Scott did. 

We understand that arrangements for services in Tennessee on Monday are being 
made, and funeral services in Illinois, where Scott was raised, are likely to 
occur on Tuesday.
