Hey Skipper! I am enjoying setting up my Christmastime drive from Florida to Winchester, VA to Cincinnati, OH via Rock Hill, SC. I want to see the Winthrop Eagles play and see Mark and Pat in action. It's at home against Wofford so there is added potential drama in the house. I will do my best to forward the initiative to produce the legacy film I am inspired to make. With this country and the world in a moral spiraling nose-dive, the people need stories and individuals that bring hope, light and love. Thanks for you reassuring guidance that this will manifest some how even in the personnel muck and mire it appears to be stuck in. I ask for your help by placing a little extra wind in my sails as I attend the next iteration of the Skip Prosser Classic between Wake and Xavier. At this time I am ultra sensitive to indications given to speak clearly, truthfully and articulate well what I am trying to accomplish. I hope to meet influential people in Cincy and will come away with renewed strength and vision. I know that I will tip a few pints on your behalf at Hap's with those there that are very fond of you. In advance, I say 'Cheers and Thanks' to you. I hope little Declan contains a lot of the positive gifts you were blessed with and the heart, mind and energy to serve others with them. For him alone, I want to make this film. Pax.

Greetings Skipper! On this special day I'm thinking of you as I work late in the editing room. Thanks for your occasional indications of how to proceed with sharing your story for the highest good of others. I remain enthusiastic that with your high-level guidance, all the pieces will come together whereby your inspirational story can be shared with an audience that needs it. Regardless, I am so honored and blessed to have known you since the days you attended Kings Point and being your guest at your last ACC victory over Georgia Tech in the conference tournament in Tampa. I guess your last win was over in Kuwait at Operation Hardware. It's fitting to learn that you shared that you got more out of the experience than that of the soldiers. What a great example of receiving more than one gives! From what your military team has said about meeting and playing for you in that short time is nothing short of amazing. Go figure! Thanks for being such a positive beacon of light to help us all find our ways and be the very best we can be. Having known you and to find out quite a bit more having interviewed so many people now, my life's path is better lit. Peace be with you Skip wherever you may be at this time.

Hey Skip! Thinking of you this late Sunday morning as the Deacs head to Duke for a very pivotal game this evening. Your authentic friendship with Dino shows in his winning ways and his focus on 'the kids'. You have passed such benevolence forward and now we must take our 'ability to respond' similarly in a caring and kind 'response-able' manner. I hope you can enjoy tonight's victory.

I grew up watching Wake Forest basketball as a kid and teenager. Starting back with Tim Duncan but when I grew older in my early teens Skip became the coach of the Demon Deacons. I worked hard through school and tried my hardest for so many years to go to Wake Forest to meet Skip because I thought he was a great man. It was a two weeks before I sent off my early application to Wake that Skip passed away. I'm sad that as I am a Wake Forest student today that I will never truly know the man that was so great not only to the Wake Forest Nation but to everyday people in everyday situations in his everyday life. Skip Prosser embodies everything that I want to be as a person...honest, humble, witty, open-minded. It's because of Skip that I've tried so hard to get to where I am today and that I will continue to try hard everyday for the rest of my life.

Thank you Skip for what you've done for me, you never knew me and I never knew you, but I hope that someday we can meet.

Well Skip; it's been a year now and we all still miss you!!! I don't think Demon Deacon Basketball will ever be quite the same without you. You are and will always be forever in our Hearts. God Speed my Friend!!!!

It has been one year ago today that Skip Prosser has died. I cant believe it and am still in shock over everything. I miss not seeing his leadership on the court and know that the wake forest teams from here on out will play with more heart and strength since this has happened. RIP Skip I will miss you dearly

Skip and my husband Henry started their teaching and coaching careers together at Linsley Military Institute in 1972. Skip went on to coach college basketball and Henry coached high school football. He was always so excited to hear about Skip's successes and would say, "hey I knew that guy when…" He was very excited to follow his career. So both of our guys loved coaching and did a great job. Henry and Skip started their careers together and ironically, both ended their careers at the same time. My husband Henry passed away one week before Skip, under the same circumstances, a totally unexpected cardiac arrest with no prior symptoms. We have three adult children, 2 boys and a girl. If anyone can empathize and understand your pain, we certainly can. Please know how sorry we are that you have had to go through this. I guess all we can do is take one day at a time. I'd like to hear from you if you wish to contact me at jan.r.bruno@gmail.com.

It'll be a year come July that we lost coach Prosser. Everytime I think of Wake Forest, I think of him. Coach Prosser was more than just a basketball coach. He was a friend. I am now up north at Villanova for grad school, and I have never once seen Jay Wright on campus. Nor could I pick him out of a line-up. But just about everyday while at Wake I saw Coach Prosser- whether it was in front of the Pit or in the Miller Center, he was there.

In the long run, the game of basketball seems so trivial. Yes, Coach led us to some great wins and the NCAA Sweet Sixteen- but I don't remember him for that. I remember Coach Prosser for who he was as a person, and what he gave back to the Wake Forest community- which is far greater than some wins. I miss Coach Prosser dearly, and although I was never close to him, he holds a very special place in my heart.

We love and miss you, Coach. May you rest in peace.
