It’s very hard to open up and express the love I felt and still feel for Skip. He has strongly touched my heart with his abundance of love and care for our whole family. He will forever be in my heart and mind with all the happiness he gave.

Words can't express the love . Skip came into our family many years ago. There was nothing he would not do to help anyone. He loved his grandchildren and his great grandchildren. He took care of my mom and her him, he loved her with all his heart. It's so hard writing this. Still seams so unreal. He will be missed and was loved so much. ❤️ He will always remain in my heart.

It takes a special kind of person to walk into an already made family of grown children and very young grandchildren and treat them as your own. You always wanted the best for all of us and it definitely showed from the things you did.

I will miss you, Gramps.
