This World is going to be lost without a Wonderful Man. Skip as he was called could build anything and fix anything. He was the most Kind Human Being I have ever met, he never met a stranger. He will always be in our Hearts. Rest In Peace Skip.

My love and prayers go out to all of you. May the Lord give each of you comfort, peace and strength now and in the days to come. I know He is always faithful. Skip was such a precious blessing to us and all who knew him and we can take comfort that he is now with the Lord that he loved and served so faithfully.
