Skip was co-founder of
Almost Heaven and dedicated a large portion of his life
to helping and rescuing animals. Skip was a gentle, compassionate,
dedicated man who gave up many personal comforts (including
vacations) to help those dogs (animals) who needed him most.
Skip leaves behind AHGRR's cofounder and wife, Carol Free.
Almost Heaven will continue
to save those animals who need us. It was Skip's request,
and last wish that the rescue continue it's work in his
memory - and in his honor. It is a legacy that will be fulfilled.
Donations in Skip's memory will be used for the comfort
and care of the orphan dogs in the care of Almost Heaven.
Thank you, everyone
for your kind thoughts and prayers. This is a very difficult
time - but Skip's spirit will see us all through ~ Carol
