    I was looking at the Cartesian website and saw Scott was no longer there. Now I can see why. He hired me and then laid me off a few years ago. I am sorry to see he has passed. He was a good guy.

    So sorry to hear about Scott. I remember meeting him several years ago. Toronto Lake? That’s what comes to mind. I will pray for you and your family during these difficult times.
