Well Skip,
We are just upon the weekend of Super Bowl Sunday. Thought I would let you know that Alex made a very poofy blue and green tutu to celebrate the Hawks going to the big game. She also got an official NFL Seahawks stocking hat, scarf and socks for Christmas. On her birthday she got a Seahawks sweatshirt and some t-shirts. She will be all decked out on Sunday to watch the game. After the win against the Packers, she went on-line (that means she went on the computer, which I still think you had hidden in your closet and just pretended to be stupid about computers so you wouldn't have to use one) and bought herself an official NFL Kam Chancellor jersey, with her own money she had saved. She wore all this crazy stuff with the exception of her socks to school today. She wore her blue socks to school for "Blue Friday" as she has been doing throughout the entire football season. No changes due to the fear of bad luck. On Sunday, she will wear the same outfit, but will include her Seahawks socks. If you were here, I know you would most likely be wearing the same tutu with your Jesus slippers right along with Alex. I think you would have a tough time trying to decide who you would be watching the game with this year - Alex or your girls and grandkids. On second thought, you would probably kidnap Alex and take her with you so you could watch the game with those you love most. I can't help but think that you must have had something to do with the win against the Packers and gave them a little pep talk at half-time, or should I say a butt chewing :) to get their act together. Just wanted you to know that I am thinking about you and miss you.

Hello Jenny,

Thank you for the Christmas Card. I misplaced your CA address and have been thinking about you and your sisters all through the holiday season. Not to mention, my continual thoughts of Skip. I saved some of Skip's ashes when we went out on the boat and have not been able to part with them. I am thinking of spreading some in the park by his sign in the spring and hope that is okay with you all. I also keep the rock he gave me in my purse at all times and remember his words "I will always be with you". His picture above remains on my frig at the FH with the picture of his chair that Rob Brooke gave me last summer. Don't think I will ever take them down. I also have a picture of him and Alex on my desk that I look at many times a day. "We will never forget".
Sounds like things are good for you in CA and I wish you the very best. If you ever get up this way again, please come see us. Keep in touch and please send me your address again.

Love & Hugs to All (Jill, Julie & Joanna & all the grandkids . . . . )

Hi Dad, So it has been a while since I visited and things have been changing. Change is good! I am living in California. I re met my soulmate! I know you know what that means, I wish you had had more time to experience the joy that comes with it. I hope I have not disappointed you. I wish you were here to see and meet him, but I know you are watching over us and I thank you for that. I miss you terribly. I love you so very much. - Jenny

Well, Skip. Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Bayview as we placed your "Skip's Place" sign in the Children's park that you worked so hard to make happen. Carl & Paul were instrumental in refinishing the sign and making this happen. Several community members and several of your family members were here.We know that you were with us in spirit.

The invitation to attend the mounting of the "Skip's Place" plaque is extended to anyone still getting messages from this guest book. As I have said, Skip will always be ever present in Bayview and this is just another example of his dedication to the community and to all kids, past, present and future. The plaque will be mounted tomorrow, Saturday, September 13th at Noon in the Bayview Community Park. For those out of town that would like to attend. The park is located off of Hwy 54 and Hudson Bay Road next to the Navy base. Please pass on this information to those that may be interested in attending.

Hi dad.................I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! I am sorry about your friend Bear, but as Jamie said we know you guys have a MONDO poker game in progress!

Hello Skip:
Well, we lost another friend of the community. I am sure you already know and that you, Jim and Bear are having great conversations and playing a hot game of poker. Thinking of you a lot lately and just wanted to let you know you are missed, however; your spirit is always present. I sent the girls an email about putting your "Skip's Place" plaque in the Bayview Community Park. It will be Saturday, September 13th at Noon. I hope they can make it.
Love and hugs always.

Parade Winners – By Norma Jean
I will bring the ribbons to the Chamber meeting August 12, 2014.
COMMUNITY
1st Place BAB'S
2nd Place Timberlake Fire Department
3rd Place Collecting for the Fireworks (Bob Prince, Jamie Berube, Alex Berube, Baylee Martin)
This posting is to let Skip know that we collected a lot of money for the fireworks of 2015 by walking the parade route with Uncle Sam (AKA – Bob Prince). I think you would be pleased. Baylee is my 6 year old granddaughter and she is now learning about the competition you and I had with collecting money for the fireworks. I also sold a record number of dollar raffle tickets at the July 4th pancake breakfast and started selling $20 raffle tickets for the Christmas drawing, which will go to the Chamber's General Fund. All tickets for the $20 July 4th raffle were sold by the Memorial Day pancake breakfast.
Alex and I ended up organizing the boat parade due to Tom Lloyd's boat not working and no radio for communication. I think you were probably smiling. Alex has a 9ft. fiberglass Livingston look alike named the Frayed Knot. She and Jim decorated it with Red Solo cups, flags and topped it off with great patriotic music that was very loud thanks to House Boat Dave on the Sweat Silver Dreams. The Sheriff's boat started the parade and we were behind them in the Frayed Knot. Sweat Silver Dreams fell in behind us and then I radioed all other boat to fall-in. Another Sheriff's boat brought up the end. Alex and I then motored over to our boat, “Little Mermaid” (also nicknamed “The Fallen Angel” by you when I am on the radio), and got in with family and friends. Kevin and crew did a great job and dedicated the show to some community members that passed during the year. Once Kevin was done, he radioed us to go ahead with the countdown, which I dedicated to you and your family. You are thought of daily.
This brings me to another Bayview update. Carl and Wendy Costello have your “Skip's Place” wood plaque refinished. I have not seen it yet but, Chuck Murray showed it off at the Chamber meeting last night, August 12th. Dennis Damon is working with Parks and Recreation to get it mounted and set in the Bayview Park. Everyone thought that the park would be the best home for the plaque. The hope is to get this done the first week of September, but the date may be determined by the Parks Department. Jenny, Jill, Julie and Joanna – please get in touch with me or Dennis and Sue so we can fill you in on the details. Hugs to all of you!
