As some of you may have heard, Skip is in a coma and is about to pass. His wife (Perk) called last night and didn't expect him to last the night. Cancer has NO mercy. Skips address is still;

Skip Pearson
2318 Cardinal
Mexico. Mo. 65265

I feel that his passing will come quickly. I'm sure glad that Carol and I got to see him about 2 weeks ago. He was weak, but in good spirits. I treasure our times together.

If you see him in the "here-after", I am certain he will recognize you and call you by name (and probably remember what he sold you).

I will up-date this as I learn more details........merlyn......

Merlyn, thanks for the update on Skip.

I got to see Skip at the Missouri Fall Shoot and was so glad I did.

Hell of a guy. Our prayers are with him and his family.

Thanks for posting, Merlyn. Hauxfan, you said he was at the MO.Fall Hdc. I can't believe he was there and I missed a chance to talk to him.

Our prayers are with you and your family.

AATrap, I think he was there for only a short time. Merlyn would know for sure.

I just happened to run into him and was able to chat with him for a while.

He'd lost a few pounds due to his illness. But other than that, he still had the same winning personality.

Skip was a good guy...always willing to help or answer any questions. Always knew your name. I was lucky enough to see him at the fall handicap and so glad that I did.

God Bless you Skip! You have touched many lives thru the years and I know your tent sharing buddy(Merlyn) will miss you alot. As we all will!

Greetings to all. This is Skip's daughter writing on behalf of all of the daughters and Perk.
We wanted to give you an update from the frontlines.
Skip is very comfortable and happy right now. He is still somewhat responsive, giving us all a smile and even sometimes a little laugh. Yesterday he said he "felt bad" for being so happy, and just grinned. He is at peace, but getting very weak. He is in no pain. PRAISE GOD! We so appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Keep up the prayers. We will be reading your comments to Skip. He responds to these.
With love...
Skip's Girls.

Perk, Skips wife, called last night about 12:30 to report Skips passing (a little after midnight). Funeral services are as of this morning, incomplete but I will report more later.
