Re: Re: Little Ski

I'm glad I got a chance to talk to him a couple of weeks ago. He knew he didn't have much longer. We had a lot of good times together. A lot of good sea stories came out of the trips to Jackman. You couldn't ask for a better shipmate than Ski. He was unique. He will be missed. I will never forget him.

Re: Little Ski

I never knew a single person who didn`t like Little Ski. He will be missed.

Sailor rest your spatula.

Re: Little Ski

A great Shipmate and a **** good cook as I recall. Sailors rest your oars.

Re: Little Ski

"Little Ski" was put to rest today @ 1300 hrs. in his hometown of Voluntown, CT.

Most in attendance were family and friends & Boy Scout leaders. I saw two other uniformed vets there.

But I made certain the the family knew how sorry and saddened we were that he had Sailed On Eternal Patrol. That he had many friends on the SS-407 and we did not forget him.

I felt it my duty and responsibility to represent all of his Shipmates that were unable to do so personally.

Hand Salute.

Re: Re: Little Ski

You did a fine thing Paul, Thanks.

Re: Re: Little Ski

We couldn't have had a better representative than you Paul. I'm sure it meant alot to his family, but always a tough thing to do. Thanks.

Re: Re: Re: Little Ski

Thanks, Paul. It's hard to attend funerals of friends. As we get on in years, we see more and more of our friends laid to rest.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Little Ski

It certainly is. Here is that picture of Little Ski that you wanted posted.

You had sent me that before, but is was too dark, so I did some Photoshop tricks to being out some details. Do you recall where the picture was taken?

Re: Re: Little Ski

Thanks Paul,
I wasn't able to make it. Mom is in the hospital for a couple of days. I'm glad you were able to attend. I have a lot of good memories of Ski.

Re: Re: Re: Little Ski

Buttons, sorry to hear about "Mom".

I hope it is nothing serious.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Little Ski

Paul, thanks for asking. She should be home Monday. At 94 she is doing well.
