Over a thousand friends, family, colleagues, and constituents turned out on Sunday, November 6th, at Meany Hall to reflect back on the late Senator Scott White and say a final goodbye. Many of Scott’s friends and colleagues shared their memories of him and his positive attitude. Several stories have been written that do a better job than I can of capturing the event and the loss of the late Senator.
