  1. Skyler was a joy to work alongside of in St. Gilbert’s REP and VBS as a young teen and then a young adult. Her genuinely warm and engaging personality, along with her seamless ability to work with others and accomplish all tasks always made her seem older and more mature than her actual age. Words can never convey the deep sadness and loss we all felt upon learning of our beautiful and gentle and loving Skyler’s illness and then passing. May Our Blessed Mother envelope you in her love, faithful follower of Jesus, dearest Skyler.
