So very hard to say goodbye to someone you’ve loved your whole life. The first man I ever loved and a generous and wise dad. I’ll miss you always.

Skookie was a good man. He always treated me with respect except when Cindy and I showed up to Ocean City on my Motorcycle! We spent many a day crabbing and enjoying a beer. He will be missed. Skookie was a good man.
