I am sure Skip fought a hard battle right until the end and I just wish success could have been his.

A great Guy and great Hawk who will be sadly missed.

My condolences to Stef and the family

RIP Skip

I don`t know what to say, every single one of you is precious and the loss of another limb "Hurts" .

I will never meet another bunch of Men who I trusted with my life such as you.

Stef and Skip.

God be with you.

Maureen & Ged Preston. :( :(
