I remember while visiting the Biber cousins Skeet taught me how to do the Hokey Pokey! That was certainly along time ago!!! Skeet did love working on the history of the Morris family and I really appreciate all the work and dedication he put into it. Plus, his effort on bringing us together for cousin reunions was very special and I am so thankful that he did. He will truly be missed!
