Ski was my neighbor when we moved to Old Hickory Lake in 2011. When my first daughter was born in 2013 I stayed home with her while my husband worked. On many days my daughter and I would walk over to Ski’s house and sit with him on his swing and look out at the lake. He’d tell me stories of his life and I’d share some of mine. Sometimes we would just sit without talking, enjoying the view and each other’s company. He was one of my first friends in Mount Juliet and I’m so glad I had the chance to get to know him. Rest easy, Ski. Thank you for being a friend.
