We were not fortunate enough to meet Ms. Skidmore since we only know her daughters.  From what we know of her daughters, Ms. Skidmore should have been such a great woman of integrity and principles.  We hope her good memories help the family to get through this difficult time.  We offer our condolences to her family.  Akbar and Nina Mahdi

Peggy, Pam and Pattie,

I just found out about your mom's passing.  Being here in Japan, I don't get the news very timely.  Since I couldn't be there, I just wanted say that I reflect on our families growing up together and how close our parents were.  From camping to square dancing and the fond memories they bring.  I share in your loss and am happy that she is with our Lord and Savior this day.  She brought such joy to everyone she met with her smiles and laughter.  I know that heaven is now rejoycing in her coming home.

God Bless you all and your families.
