RIP Skip

.
.

.
Skip, guinea pig and friend to Lorinda's children, escaped the bonds of this mortal life peacefully in his sleep early in the morning of December 18th 2009. Skip was from Pet Smart, Georgia and just had his 4th birthday. (in human years)
.
Skip was a Christmas gift to Rae and was adopted by Naomi about a year ago. He had a hearty appetite and greeted everyone with a loud and enthused squeak, all hours of the day and night. Skip gained his name by hopping and skipping around in his cage.
.
Skip outlived his guinea pig family by several years but is survived by his human family- Gary, Lorinda, Wes, Nolan, Rae, Naomi, Zoe and the family cat Boo, who resisted the temptation of playing cat and mouse.
.
A graveside service was held early on the morning of December 18th, Gary (only) was in attendance.
.
Remembrances may be given to the Hop, Skip and a Jump Society.
