Skip fought two great wars in his lifetime. He didn't lose either one of them. He came home from the first one a hero and he left this world with his loving wife by his side. Her was larger than life. That's how I'll remember him. Bless his heart. We're all going to miss him.

My darling, I am trying to make this as short, simple and uncomplicated as we talked about. Everyone you wanted me to invite, I have. Those you didnt want to come see you shall not. I know you hated these situations, and I agree...if they didnt want to take the time to pay respect to you while you were alive then you didnt need them there after the fact. Your ashes will stay with mom for a while and then I will bring you home. Like I promised you will always be the keeper and guardian of your hoem ...our home. Yor gardens are growing and the world shall know what a greatly changed man you had become since I cane into your life. Always for Always....your baby!
