Skip was much like our Dad! Direct but a good heart . My fondest memories of him were taking me for ride when I was in high school on his motorcycle and giving me a lot of free pizza from his parttime job at Pizza Hut. And many weekends spent with him and Betty at their home as I grew into a young woman! They were closer in age to me, understood how it felt to be a teenager growing up in those changing times, and the influence they had on me shaped my ideas of good marriages! I loved Skips dry sense of humor . Time has a way of slipping away and we tuck away the ones we love in our hearts and we don’t spend time with them like we should. That is always a regret. However , I will always love Skip and Betty and will always think of those times we had together. I know Skip is with the Lord as he spoke to me of it a few years back . Much love to you Betty and to
Jaime and Debbie and peace to
You all. Susan Miller Webber
