Skip will be missed by many. He was a great person and a good friend. He was so funny with his hats and accusing me of trying to run him over. Prayers to the family and especially his wife Judy. My God be with you during this trying time. He will be in peace now and with his Lord and Savior. Love & sympathy to all Sharon .

We have missed seeing you lately but you're not forgotten. Thank you for faithfully serving at New Hope for many years. We had some good times. Out of all the hats you've worn, the crown you'll be given beats them all. Our love
