  1. I met Scott and Dash at Sam’s Club a few months back. I did not know him or his story. We talked for awhile and I walked away with a good feeling because of the conversation we had. What a exceptional young man. You will do well with your life I am sure. Thank you for the time you spent speaking with me, and thank you for letting me interact with Dash. He is so beautiful!
