    Ikey,
    My name is Sterling from Scottsbluff, NE. I am 18 years old and have shot SCTP and ATA for four years now. Skip became a close friend of mine at Nebraska State right away. He has taken care of my team and I extensively through his amazing deals and donations. We grew close enough that he allowed myself and a fellow shooter, Doug Beebe, to watch his store while he was shooting at several state shoots. We also helped him with setup and tear down daily at several state shoots he attended. He always awarded us with items valued far above the value of our work. Skip is a wonderful man with a huge heart. He NEVER took advantage of any other shooter that he did business with.

    Ikey, I have a huge favor to ask of you. Would you ask Beth if she would tell her dad that the Western Nebraska team of Doug, Ashley, Ethan, and Sterling are praying for him? Thank you so much. Please email me at the above address if you have any other news or know of how i can get in contact with our dear and trusted friend.

    Thank you,
    Sterling

    Denny,

    Tell Skip Hi for me. I will be waiting for him to get back so I can get revenge for the pool games at Sparta.

    I'll be thinking of him.

    Ikey, Thanks for posting. I don't know Skip personally but gladly prayed for him and commend him. By the references above I know that he has attained a goal in life that I am striving for. He has a good name, no not the word Skip but the fact that everyone speaks well of him. That my friend is better than gold. It would say that he is kind, considerate, honest and a man of honor. That's not to say he is rich financially but rich in many other ways. He is a man that many will cherish his friendship and go out of their way to help as he has done. My thoughts and prayers are with him. Jackie B.

    Denny Tell Skip he is in my prayers. I always enjoy visiting with him at the shoots we both attend. Several times I got to cool off in his camper at the Grand or a State Shoot. No need to sign my name because he knows me as Killian's Red, but Kent Southard wishes him the best.

    About the only bad thing somebody can say about Skip is that he hangs out with Merlyn. The good news is they are like Butch and Sundance from Misery. We look forward to having Skip back in Nebraska as he has made a lot of friends here. Skip, you can even bring Merlyn with you this summer. Thanks for all your kindnesses. Omaha

    Like Sterling said, I too befriend Skip at the Nebraska state shoot a few years ago, he is 1/million, you could say they broke the mold after him. He was always nice, and always willing to talk to you. My prayers go out to him and his family!

    I truly hope Skip gets to read this thread. we all think the world of him. I had missed this until a friend emailed me to be sure I had seen it since I had not responded. I hadn't.

    Please tell Skip that Howard, Lorna, Bryan and Emily Hull are praying for him, as are Loren and Marlene Troutman. My Dad and mom. My Dad sold insurance as did Skip and they had such a great time talking about their careers.

    Please also tell Skip, he has to get better.......he still owes us a rematch at miniature Golf!! We all went miniature golfing one night at Missouri State shoot and he had a hoot. But he promised to do it again!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with him, and with his entire family. Especially Bryan's friend, Alex, Skips grandson who traveled with Skip for a season. We know this is a battle you are all going through.

    If you happen to have a room number, I would love to send a card.
