Mitch is gone.

Thank you so much for your prayers. I so appreciate them. Mitch went on to be with the Lord and to be reunited with his beloved daughter on Sunday. He will be so sorely missed by his wonderful family and by those of us who had the privilege of knowing him. Please continue to pray for the repose of Mitch's soul and for the consolation his family, especially my niece and nephew to whom he meant so much.

This is what my brother had to say about Mitch.

My father-in-law, Mitch Skory, died last night. He had been on a ventilator for 3 days. He was one of those persons who always seemed larger than life so it’s hard to believe he is gone. He was 84 but looked and acted about 60 or even younger. Always on the move, tackling physically demanding projects. He just gutted and refurbished a house in the last year to make some extra money. He basically did it for fun. His mother lived to be 101(healthy and vibrant to the end) so we always assumed Mitch would live at least that long. His incredible generosity, kindness, patience, and saint like qualities has made him legendary in the very large Skory family. It’s a real blow to Monique and Mitch as he and Bea have played huge roles in their lives in the almost 9 years (4-20-01) since Linda died. He’s also been like a father to me since my father died (11-28-06)

Yeah. That says it all. He was a good man. And he was always so very kind to me and my family. I can see his smile and his gentle manner so clearly. May he even now be before the throne of Jesus with sweet Linda, his only daughter.

Thank you for the prayers.
