Sorry to hear the news about Skip. I also was one of his St. Mary’s classmates. We were in Boy Scouts together and I even stayed overnight at his home in Glenfield a few times. I recall playing on a swing up on the hillside near ‘Indian Rock’. I hate to mention this, but we also bombed cars with eggs as they passed below us on Glenfield road. Condolences to his family.
So sorry Josh about your loss, it’s never easy to see a parent or loved one pass. Just know that your Dad is in a much better place than we are…..no more pain, no more suffering. My Family and I will continue to lift your family up in prayer! Call me whenever you like if you need to talk. Much love, your Brother from another Mother!😁 # SteelerNation7!!!!
Remembering you as a respectful, purpose driven character at St Mary’s Glenfield Elementary School, Avonworth HS, and in my brief encounter across the counter at Isaly’s in East Liberty, I salute you, farewell.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I am so sorry to hear Uncle Skip passed away. I know his suffering is over and he is resting in heaven with Gram, Pap and my Mom and Dad. I love you and will continue to pray God gives you strength. My heart aches for all of you, Aunt Karen, Melissa, Pam, and Joshua may God give you the peace that passeth all understanding. I’m so sorry we can’t be there please know we would if we could. Love and Miss you all.
Bless you Skip, you will be missed.
