My heart goes out to both of you. I know how hard it is to lose someone you love, let alone a parent. Regardless of the problems they had in their lives, they both had loving hearts and they adored their children. Quintin was funny and loving and kindhearted. He loved kids and tried his best in spite of his disease. When Doug died he was there to comfort me. Those moments are the moments we all need to remember. Quintin had a hard life and I hope that he has found some peace now.
I think those who are writing good things about my dad he might have done some bad things in his life but he was a good dad i loved him alot and i always will i just wish it wasnt him that had to go but i know god done it for a reason and he is in a better place now and i want you to know dad that i love you with allmy heart and i always will even though i didnt even get to tell u bye i am now and i love you.
Quintin's passing was such a great loss to us all. If he called you his friend then he was a true blue friend. He would do whatever he could to help you even if it meant taking the shirt off his back for you. I choose to remember the good things about Quintin. Things like the look on his face when he saw his son Scotty for the first time. Or how he watch in amazement when Scotty took his first steps. Quintin was a good father not only to Scotty but to his brother Andrew also. He truely loved those boys and they loved him in return. Quinten done alot of good things in his short lifetime so let's please try to remember those times. All the good things things he had done before the drugs took over his life. Most people dont understand that addiction is a disease just like a cancer. Even with treatment it can still kill you. Some think it's a choose to use or lose but for most addicts the choose has already been made for us. In my life I've been oh so lucky cause by all rights I should have passed away long ago. God has stood by me , over me and most certainly has been my protector throughout my entire lifespan. For what reason I have'nt a clue but I do believe God has a plan for each one of us and when that plan is fulfilled God calls on home just as He did Quintin.
Rest easy my friend. Know that we all love and miss you. You are always on our minds and and forever in our hearts
QUINTIN YOU ALWAYS SAID YOU DIDN'T WORRY ABOUT SCOTTY BECAUSE YOU KNEW ME AND DOUG WOULD TAKE CARE OF HIM. YOU WAS RIGHT, WE WILL LOVE HIM AND HELP THROUGH OUT HIS LIFE BUT YOU WERE WRONG ABOUT HIM NOT NEEDING YOU IN HIS LIFE. HE KNEW YOUR LIFE AND IT WORRIED HIM. HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH AND HIS LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. I HAVE SO MANY REGRETS THAT I AM SO SORRY FOR AND ONE OF THOSE IS THAT I DIDN'T BRING SCOTTY TO SEE YOU MORE THEN I DID. DOUG HAS ALWAYS BEEN RIGHT THERE FOR HIM BUT HE NEEDED YOU IN HIS LIFE. HE IS SO MUCH LIKE YOU. I HAVE ALWAYS TOLD HIM THAT I WOULD HAVE TO BEAT IT OUT OF HIM BUT I WAS ALWAYS KIDDING. I AM SO PROUD OF OUR SON AND I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING ABOUT HIM. AS LONG AS HE LIVES YOU WILL NEVER REALLY DIE! SO, WHERE EVER YOU ARE WATCH OVER OUR SON AS HE GROWS INTO A WONDERFUL YOUNG MAN. I PRAY THAT GOD ALLOWS YOU TO BE WITH HIM DURING THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF HIS LIFE.
Everytime I read this thread it just breaks my heart. I think I've cried more since I started this thread than I have in years. This is all so sad. Scotty honey dont ever think that your dad didnt know that you loved him cause he did. Quintin and I talked alot about you and someday when I can keep my composure I will tell you about all the times we talked about you and Bobby. He was so proud of you and the young man you have become. You know your dad had problems but no matter what other people say you hold your head up high and be proud to be his son. Quintin was a good person and he loved you very much. And it's like your mother said, you are just like your dad and that's a good thing cause so long as your alive a part of your dad is alive also. If you ever need anything or just need to talk you know I'll be there for you. I love you Scotty.
Just wanted to say that I am sorry for your loss I knew Quintin and behind the drugs was a good young man. He spoke of you Scotty alot about how you are a good boy and that you were real good at football. You hold your head high and be proud of your daddy. He was proud of you.
Scotty--You and Jenna both need to remember all of the good things about your dads. I knew both of them loved you with all that they knew how to. It is a hard time to go through no matter what your age, but when you are still this young, it is even harder. Just remember that there are people who love you and are there to talk with you about your dads and how you felt about them and also talk about the pain you feel now.
Quintin had such a loving heart and when you saw him look at his children, there was such a glow on his face and a peace that I have not seen any other time. It was as if everything was gone but the pure joy he got from seeing you. That is the most handsome I have ever seen him. He was a handsome man, but when he looked at his children, it was something else!
When y'all feel lonely, hold on to the fact that you both knew they loved you and would do anything for you if they could.
