The written word does not flow with ease when it involves loss. On December 27, 2019 SKIP lost a dear friend and a part of our family. Every loss lands hard so I pay tribute to all of us who experience this part of life. The man I knew since 2003 came to support SKIP, certainly not because our non- profit was known to many people but because he, Deirdre and Wyatt believed in the mission.
I saw acts of kindness, I lived trips to see Eminem with one of our children, and Brant getting directions from the control tower less we get lost, I saw amazing warmth in the I-Man touched me to my very core. I saw love, deep love for his family and a selfless patron of children. He did so much to help our children and came to every event bringing his own natural flair to the event. He was not afraid to offer opinions but it came from the heart and cut through to the core, dumping my wordiness.
There is no way to say how thankful we are so I will hang this up just like Don did no need for further salutations we send our love and heart.
