Ricki and kids - we're so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. It was so fast but God didn't want him to suffer, so it was a blessing. He was so special to Pud and Allen........and to us this past February when Allen passed. You're all in my prayers and we're here for whatever you need - just call. Love, Lisa and Rick

So sorry for your loss. Grew up with Tommy and most of the Skidmore family and friends with Ricki even before they were married. I have many great memories and stories involving Tommy. He will not only be missed by family but by all who ever knew him.
