This is so very hard to believe that you are gone. I will forever cherish you in my heart Uncle Skip, you were like another father to Ali and me. You were definitely an amazing person, always there to give some advice or a shoulder to cry on.
Please say hello to Grandma and Grandpa. I love you so very much.
Kathi, Scott and Mark , thank you so much for taking care of him in his last days. You all are in my prayers and I wish I could be there to give you a hug. Sending my love to you all in this time, I know that his loss is hard on you all.

Kathy, John, Penney, and all the family please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Skip. To Skip from Karen and John: May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Love Karen
