Aunt Ethel, I have always treasured Uncle Skillet's quiet, but strong, love for family. I will never forget his words and embrace on the day Gran-Gran died (Milton). I can image the two of them wetting a couple of hooks in the lakes of heaven even now. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Jennifer
