To the Editor:

On behalf of our family, I would like to thank Skip’s friends and the management of the Redwood Times and Times-Standard Newspapers for the lovely flower arrangement, which your organizations sent to Skip’s memorial service in Fortuna on January 12. The flowers were beautiful, and Skip would have been most pleased with your thoughtfulness and generosity.

I would also like to thank you for providing us with a photo of Skip from your files at the Redwood Times, which we used with his obituary and for the complimentary printing of his obituary in your newspapers. Thanks, too, for the extra copies of the newspaper with his obituary.

Skip would very must appreciate the respect your have shown for him with these acts of kindness and generosity. He was always happy and proud of his job at the Redwood Times, and he remained a strong supporter of the newspaper in the Southern Humboldt community.

Skip enjoyed living in Garberville and contributing to the success of the community through his membership in Rotary and his service with the Chamber of Commerce. He was always willing to support all worthy causes in the communities where he lives. We will miss Skip in our lives and I’m sure he will be missed by many members of the Southern Humboldt community.

Thanks again for all your help and support.

Linda L. Bucher
