I recall the time when Timmy and I were 16 years old and Skip bought us strapping young men 10 or 12 cases of beer when he came to visit from Florida. Although his sister Cathy (Timmy's mom) expressed some reservation, the cases of beer made it's way to the basement by the ping pong table none the less in which rules were established as we could only drink alcohol inside the house and no driving of course. Those were the days....

Skip, you always treated me like family when I was around. You won't be forgotten.

I wanted to share a memory of us together doing something together. Its sad our family was separated never to get back together. I'm sure this happens to many families. I never knew you were a captain of tugs and cruise lines. I remember a photo of you hugging my neck or maybe you were rolling me. I kind of knew you would be the first to be greeted by mom. I knew she always liked you better than me. I know God will hook you up for some singing bingo. I'm sure you have realized paying taxes isn't so bad after all look at the alternative. I'll be 71 soon so be on the lookout if you decide to make your way to Florida. I remember our easter baskets and better times. I have made arrangements for my ashes to be placed at sea. I wish our family could have been different. We don't get to pick our family only our noses. God bless smooth cruising calm seas.
