Nancy, This is Joe Munoz, I came across this looking in past obituaries from Galveston. Gracie and I were devastated to see that posted. Our deepest sympathy for y'alls loss. Little skip has a resemblance of his Dad. Gracie and I were living in Maryland at the time of skips death. Felt terrible about not keeping in contact with skip. He and I went thru so much together, Skip was my best man at my wedding. Nancy I'm sorry for not keeping in touch...

I am so so sorry to hear of Skippy's passing. I was privileged to have known Skippy for a very long time - I believe at Island Elementary. Skippy always had a smile on his face and a heartfelt hello. He will be missed.
