Dear Norma and family,
I was so sorry to learn of Skeeters passing. He was such a kind and gentle man. He lived a good life and you all were surely blessed to be a family. Remembering fun gatherings with the Drinkwine clan through the years. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through these coming days. Take all the time you need to grieve. We are never ready to say good bye.

I wish I didnt live so far away. My heart broke when I heard the news. I missed out on the last 6 years and I always have you all in my heart and think of you daily even from England. I am so sorry for your lose of grandpa Mel. He was always at my extra curricular activities growing up and new how to push my buttons and laugh harder than i thought was possible. I will forever smell pipe tobacco and think of grandpa mel and there is somehow comfort in that. I am sorry for your loss ❤
