Feb 28,1966-July 27, 2008 On His Birthday

In memory of Lindell Keith Skipper Jr. on his 43rd birthday.
The picture of him on his Harley Sportster 1200 XLH was taken @ the Dragon. (Let him that rideth understand.) I now have that bike and am trying to keep it up for whichever of his two children desires it when they are old enough to ride.

Nicely done. Sorry about the loss of your older brother. Very nice tribute.

Blessings.

PS. I take it then you are the same age as Jack Benny.

JL,
Thanks.
I am accepting/coping better now. I miss him, but I am so busy with my own life that I have to move on. My greater concern is for his 6 y/o son and 12 y/o daughter.
Jack was a little older than I by a couple of years. I was born in '71

My oldest brother's birthday is also the 28th. I'm sorry you've lost him Jason.

I think the first year is hardest. After that, the missing eventually dulls some. We can talk about them, really talk about them. There is a sense in which they live in those words. That's not a platitude, storytelling somehow makes them real again. Don't forget to tell his kids about their dad.

Char,
Thanks for the advice. The younger child will certainly need to hear about his dad. At six you don't always remember that much.
I'm coming to appreciate that we had him as long as we did.
Most of us are coping well. I am concerned about the children. The boy is simply a live wire. He's a good kid, but he cannot sit still and be quiet. It's worse now than before. The girl is a sweet heart, but she's maturing soooo fast in every way. She's had to have counseling, because she wants to be the grownup in the family and be strong so her mom won't cry.
They need your prayers.
