  3. Hello,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Mr. Skouge was always top notch with me, a real champ. I’ll never forget his eagerness to share bits from A Prairie Home Companion and teach me a bit about classical music. Also, his affinity for and appreciation of Schlitz will always be in my mind.

    Ron always treated me like an adult during my teen years, and I’ve always appreciated that about him.

    My condolences,
    Mitch Youts
