A Denouement

Sad days..tears, Skip was a influence as a new writer, and being privy to many of his works in progress, he was priceless and this hurts.

Writing Odds n Ends

My father. My children’s grandfather. My friend.

by Jessi Clarkson, Skip’s daughter.

You haven’t heard from my father in a while. He has been absent from this blog for health reasons.

My sweet father passed away this Monday approximately 1:00 AM. My sisters and I gathered around his hospital bedside and held his hand as he slipped away into the immortal atmosphere.

My family recognizes that there are quite a few of you who have befriended my dad here on this site. Therefore, I would like to keep you updated with more stories that we find of his and his songs, poems, and musings.

We are all so sad to lose such a creative and loving person in our life.

I will be posting the treasures we find, old and new, if he meant for them to be public, here on this site. May you be comforted as I am…

  3. I’m sending my condolences. Blogging is like one big family and I understand that this can be just as emotional as losing someone we once knew in person. This has happened to me before, so you have my empathy ❤

  4. Thanks Tre, he was a cool character…one of my first followers and an excellent short story and children’s book crafter. Sad, indeed, and I hope his treasure trove of tales bring his family solace for the future. Thank you, I pray I, too, am remembered many years from now, by someone I influenced as a beginner.💜
