I was so sad to hear of Skip’s passing. May the Lord comfort you and send his peace. I am unable to attend tomorrow, so just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers. Forrest told me about your Dad!

I will miss him. He always had a funny joke or story when he came into the office. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
