My heart aches to hear of such a loss. I remember Skippy in my Camp Fire Group all those years ago. Such a delightful, spirited, beautiful girl. My prayers go out to Rachel, their daughters, Ray Luster (best camp fire dad ever) and the rest of the family. May you feel God’s comforting arms around you and remind you of all the joyous times you had for Skippy.

You will be truly missed…
I tried but didn’t want my memories of your beautiful smiling face replaced…

We are so very sorry to hear about Skippy. Condolences and hugs to the family. May your good memories keep her close.

She could always make your day sparkle and genuinely loved her family and friends. She most of all deeply loved you, Rachel. She was utterly happy to officially be the parent with you to Gillian and Mariah. I loved hearing about her passion and excitement.
This will come and go in waves for a long time I’m sure and for me as well because I was very fond of her and will treasure her dearly. Remember on the tough days what she wanted for each of you daily, and in life. Strive for this. It will be the best way to push onward and support each other. I look forward to seeing the girls continued growth in school and in life. Stay the beautiful, strong, and talented women that you are and when I’m ready for a sitter I know who to reach out to for my lil kiddos. Skippy always talked about how great they are with kids. You all will be in my continued thoughts and I wish you peace during this time.

Warm and Sincere Regards,

Bre, Holly, Kenny, and Dylan Malach
