So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Skidmore. I have many fine memories of him from my time at Thistletown Baptist Church. He was always a kind, gentle, and godly man. My deepest sympathies to all his family, and especially his dear wife Marg. May he Rest In Peace.

Many great memories of Ray at Thistletown Baptist Church. What stands out in my memory are the special songs he often sang for the Lord on Sundays. I can imagine that he is singing with great joy at this very moment as he is with his Saviour. Faithful servant. Ray and Marg were a great encouragement and example to me when I was a new Christian at Thistletown. They faithfully prayed for us the many years we were overseas.
