Sandi, I'm so very sorry to hear of Skip's passing. It sounds like Skip followed in your Mother's footprints being so involved with the music industry! My heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your brother as I lost both my brothers within 4 months about 4 years ago. I'm so sorry I won't be able to attend his service tomorrow but I will certainly keep you in my prayers.

Sandy, I'm so sorry for your loss. Skip was a kind, generous person who was blessed with an amazing musical talent. I have many fond memories of playing music with him back in the 70's and 80's. He brought excitement and joy to so many people.
