Not sure when the guest book closes, but want to get one last post in before it does. It was great to see Curtis at the Memorial Day Pancake Breakfast in Bayview this past weekend. I know we all think of Skip at the breakfast every year as there are reminders of him and his presence everywhere. Paul wears his apron, but we didn't get him into shorts and Jesus slippers this year. Maybe next year :)
Skip was heavily on my mind all weekend. I parted with the few remaining ashes that I have kept over the past 2 years and placed them in a very special spot in Bayview that he loved and worked so hard to obtain for the community and visitors. I also placed 2 American Flags in the Bayview Community Park, one on each side of the sign that says "Skip's Place". It was beautiful and if this guest book is still open on Monday, 6/1/15, I will try and get the pictures posted for everyone to see.
We got Jacquelyn's graduation announcement in the mail this week with her beautiful pictures. Love the one on Skip's boat with "The Peaceful Warrior" under the spot where she was photographed.
Speaking of Skip's boat, Rob Brooke is trying to sell his wooden boat that was in the same shed area as Skip's. You girls were kind enough to give one of the custom made chairs that was on the Peaceful Warrior to Rob and he was kind enough to pass it on to me last weekend. Of course I had an emotional moment, but love sitting in the chair on the dock thinking that Skip is putting his arms around me with one of his great big hugs. It is perfect. What a wonderful gift and I am so thankful to have it with me at the float home.
I would like to THANK YOU girls for keeping this guest book open these past 2 years. What a great place for all of us to come and share our thoughts. I can't believe it has been 2 years. It seems like Skip hasn't been gone that long. I guess that is a good thing because it means he will always be alive in our hearts, thoughts and prayers as we all talk with him from time to time.
Another thing that happened this past weekend that made me feel his presence was his rocks. I was talking with someone about some current issues in Bayview that have caused hurt and hard feelings in the community. When I was talking with this individual at the Community Center, my purse strap slipped off my shoulder and the rock he gave me fell to the ground. I have to believe he was trying to communicate the disappointment he must be feeling about all this turmoil in the community. I don't think the person I was talking with understood, but I sure did. Like I have said he will always be with us and we need to pay attention to those messages he is sending us.
By the way, the Chamber President officially asked me to organize the boat parade on the 4th of July this year. Another honor and gift bestowed upon me to know that Skip must be smiling at his "Fallen Angel" and her daughter.
I love you and miss you, Skip!
P.S. - Jenny thanks for your last letter. I will write soon or shoot you a call. You all are welcome to call me anytime.

Hey Skip,
Bayview misses you more than you could ever know and especially now. All the work you did to bring this community together and protect it seems to be in trouble on several different levels. We sure need you now as you always had the research down and the facts clearly presented, so all your DAC partners could effectively examine all sides of an issue. It is sad and I, so wish you were here. I miss you dearly my friend and think of you often.
