“She was so loved and so cared about,” said Heather Redford, Scott's best friend.

She said Scott was a wonderful mother, friend and sister.

“She was always laughing. Just such a good spirit,” Redford said.

She added that she believes Vos deserves everything that is coming for him.

“You took that woman away from all of us. A mother, a daughter, a sister, a best friend, you took her away from all of us,” she said.

Family and friends set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses and for the two children she is leaving behind.
