    I never knew Skip personally but I knew of him through Shelly. He sounds like he was a great brother and great person! I truly hope Skip knew how much his sister loves him! The loss of a brother is indescribable! Shelley has helped me through this as well (including hugging Skip when I missed my brother) what a very big impact SkiP has had on me through Shelly! He was larger than life itself! My heart and prayers go out to the whole family.
