Although I have become acquainted with Skip in the last three years in the group of Retirees who share their thoughts and lives and problems over coffee in Old Crown Coffee Roasters on N. Anthony Blvd., he was obviously a man who loved life in spite of illness. We often laughed and dined together on Friday nights and when hosted in the homes of mutual friends. It saddened me to witness his physical deterioration. I am sorry for your loss.

Uncle Skip,
I will fondly remember the days when you and Aunt Marsha and the rest of the family got together to play cards. Our reunions kept the family/cousins growing up and spending time together. The Rasor’s taught a lot about family bonding. Sharing food, stories and seeing everyone arguing over a nickel (ha!) were highlights I will always cherish. I sure miss you all. Have fun playing cards once again. I’m sure they saved a seat for you. :)
Love, Sherry
