We shared Lutheran North together.
And met again at the 50th reunion.
We will meet again in heaven.

RIP: My dear friend Skip Ericson.

Over 50 years ago we were lunch mates at Lutheran High School North in St. Louis, MO.

Once we reconnected...for over ten years we'd email each other almost daily from the mundane to the outrageous stuff going on in our lives...and in the world. I'll miss his wit and sarcasm and his wisdom....and that booming voice he used so well in the radio business and from the pulpit. I'll miss you big guy...well, smaller...he was proud of the 100 lbs. that he lost.

If you’ve ever read his Facebook posts...Have a cookie on Skip, of course...chocolate chip.
