Dear Virginia, Debbie and Donna, I am so sad to read of Skips death. He was a very special person. I am so thankful for having you all in my life, for so many years. We have had physical distance between us for many years since living so close in Midland, and I cherish all of the memories. You are in my prayers as you adjust to life without Skip. Love from all of us, Kellie, Karin and Betty.

Dawn, Robbie and family, I am so sorry you are experiencing another adjustment in your lives so soon. May God hold each of you tightly in His loving arms. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will say is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathway ahead as you need, everyone has a different individual one. I love each and every one of you and will have you in my prayers for comfort, peace and encouragement. Cling tightly to His unchanging and unfailing loving hands. Nana Jackie
