I am so sorry Skeeter is no longer with us. I know he leaves behind many friends and family but he has many friends in Heaven that will be glad to see him. He was one of the nicest men I have ever known, always had a smile and hug for everyone. The last time I saw him, we were under the social distancing and mask wearing situations at the bank. When he started to leave the bank, he turned around and said "I don't care - I am going to hug you anyway". I will always treasure that hug and the man that gave it.
My prayers and love to Jill and family.
