My deepest condolences to the Shipp family. Pa was such a wonderful man, who I loved very much. Ma and Pa Shipp were the best people I have ever met. They made me always feel welcome and we loved spending time together; California, Las Vegas, Texas, New York, etc. we had great laughs and fun. I truly miss them but am glad they are together again. Much love, Hanna 💜

I only met Pa Shipp a few times, but it was ALWAYS a pleasure to be in his company. I have met a lot of people in my 66 years but few were his equal. Sir, you will be missed! I also know that a lot of his positive qualities will live on in my dear friend, Danny Stone!!!
