Our brother Videll Scott (a.k.a Scotty known by friends) (a.ka. Saul known by family) the youngest of both the late James Solomon and Mary L. Scott was born on May 29, 1973 in Baltimore, Maryland. He departed thislife-to-life everlasting on February 3, 2021. He gave his life to Jesus Christon July 1, 2009. Since then, he examined himself to make sure his calling was real.
Videll received his formal educationfrom both Estelle S.C and through the Baltimore City School System. Afterleaving Lake Clifton High School he graduated from Woodstock Job Corps and received a certificate in carpentry.In life, he learned various skills such as (roofing, painting, Flooring, sheetrock, some mechanic work, landscaping, etc.) He later pursued a career in the medical field in 2010where he became a home health aide.His additional training began in 2015as a certified nurse. He called me the day he walked out of class with his certification, so happy, I can see his smile over the phone. I rememberedsaying to him, (Scotty) Mama wouldhave been so proud of you. We both stood in silence enjoying the moment.We were both excited about his accomplishment and the efforts hemade to make this all possible. Heenjoyed taking care of others and worked until he departed this life on earth.
Scotty was the life of the party; the all-around guy you would rather bearound when having a good time. Hewas humorous, hilarious, fun to be around, the most respectful person you could meet. In his spare time, heenjoyed nurturing his loved ones,spending time with family and friends,traveling, listening to music, dancing,and enjoying good food and conversation. Videll was still a yes mam, and yes sir young man right up to the time of his departure. Everywhere he went he left a positive impression upon the lives that he touched.
Growing up he had two special nieces (LaToya and Kiesha). He and his nieces made a pact a long time agothat they were going to be brother and sisters. As Scotty got older and life problems seemed to weigh him down,he always consulted with his mother. He talked to her about anything and everything, even during the time ofdating. I remember one late night Mama was sleeping Videll went into her room and sat at the foot of her bed weeping and calling Mama. She woke up startled, asked what was wrong?He said he was hurting, she said where at, he said deep in his heart,(He was dating, and things were notgoing well). He told Mama he thinkshe was in love. Videll had a close relationship with his mother. He valued her advice and pondered her words in his heart. But the most thing he valued is how she listened, lovedand cared for him. He never ceased to visit her grave site on her birthday,sometimes alone and sometimes withothers. I can imagine him talkingwhile at her grave site about various things, or just getting some things off his chest.
