“Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold-plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn’t perfect but as he always said, ‘The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross. As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain’t going to see another one like him again. See Ya Down the road, Scott. I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you,” Nash wrote on Instagram.
