    Skip was our neighbor all of my life growing up. I can remember when I was a kid going to visit him and his mom and she had a big featherbed. He would always point out persimmons for me to pick up if I didn’t see them. Even as I grew up, I always stopped by with my daughter during the persimmon festival or when I seen him out in his yard on my visits to friends. So sorry and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.
