Dad, thank you for all the special memories I will forever keep in my heart. Thank you for being present in my life and doing the best to your abilities to making sure I had a future. I'll always hold close the memories we shared together whenever we went out fishing, whether it was in your old backyard in the resaca or on your boats. I'm grateful for the many good memories I have of us. I love you so much. Until we meet again, Dad. I'll always be your little girl.

Thank you family and friends for your love and support for our family. It really is appreciated. My sympathy goes out to you all who were close to my dad and got to see a side of him I may never have seen. God bless you all.

Joey will be missed. He was always very generous and kind to our mother Estela Skill. When he would visit, he always brought lots of fish and shrimp to the house. He enjoyed fishing and enjoyed sharing his rewards.
