Not sure what to say?

I didn't get a chance to say goodbye, nor did you ever let me know if you were in bad health, but I suppose you didn't want me to know. I'm so lucky to have met you, and I know your soul will still be with us still at Cracker Barrel. Please watch over us and stay in my heart forever. I will miss you but never ever forget you.

To the family of Skeebo. I first met him through one of his coffee buddies, my father. The times I saw him he was always such a treat to be around.
He had such a great time telling my son a few years ago when we visited the coffee buddies, what his first name was and that he didn't want to be called by that name because it was a girls name. My son was so engrossed and delighted with the secret, that as we left that day he announced (quite loudly) Bye, Laurin. My son was son tickled as...

To The Family:
The staff at Wells Fargo Vandalia Office will sadly miss Mr.Peele smile and his jokes.

You won't know me, but I was privileged to be a friend of "Skeebo" for over 50 years, meeting him through work at Western Electric Co. This was when AC Corp. was located in the ORD area for a number of years. I still remember "Skeebo" leaving the Burlington plant and playing the "Dukes of Hazard" tune on a horn-like device he had in his truck! ( Anything to put a smile on your face!) I know you will miss him terribly...he was truly a special person.

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

To the family of skeebo,
Just a note to say, I lost one of my best friends. Skeebo and I worked together at AC Corp. for 30 years. Oh, what memories we shared of the good and bad. But I will never forget that he's one of a kind. Memories that will last forever.
A great loss,your friend,
Ray Setzer

Dear Betty,
I am in shock. I am out of the country and found the obituary for Skeebo on line. I cannot believe it. I did not hear from him very often, but he has always been a favorite of mine. I am so sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Betty and family,

My heart goes out to all of you for your incredible loss. As you know, Skeebo was like an 'uncle' to me after growing up next door for 17 years. He gave me my first job cutting his lawn every week and helped me ride my first bike. I will miss him dearly but have a childhood lifetime of memories to remind me of how kind and generous of a man he was.
No one could've asked for better neighbors than Betty and Skeebo and I'm so glad I stopped by on that...

Dear Betty Jean and family,
You won't know me by name but I am one of Skeebo's cousins.(I'm a Grandaughter of Aunt Catherine Peele's Sister, Rosa Bullard Williams). I saw Skeebo from time to time and we enjoyed our short "visits" and talking about family, etc.
I was so saddened to hear of your loss and will be praying for all of your family thru this time of grief.

God bless all of you.

Shirley Younts Gardner and family
