Too sad.

When he disappeared (due to having a bad stroke) a couple years ago I managed to track down a sliver of info about him using his profile pic.. Well not much more than a couple of other pics:

R.I.P. Skipper!

When I heard this sad news from Seb's Mom I had to return to OB after 15 months of no posting to pay my respects to a great guy who I thought highly of in my years here. Always a nice man, and always had me laughing. OB's loss is heaven's gain.

I heard the news today, oh boy....:-(

I am sad and happy at the same time.

I am thankful for the many days that he filled with laughter and my thoughts are with all of those who loved him in this life.

The handful of messages I shared with Skip years ago, showed to me that he was a class act. An all-around good joe and soul, that is our Skipper.

Farewell, ol' buddy.

To Skipper's family, I just heard the news. He was a friend to everyone from day one, with a sense of humor that helped me get through a lot of tough days. Without knowing, I think he needed us also, we filled some kind of a void. He will be missed as he left a huge impact on a lot of people's day to day lives. He has touched so many people, and he probably never realized just how many. His oldie music thread is a delight and the legacy will continue. Thank you for allowing me to read your postings,Skipper. This misses, misses you already.
