I heard through the grapevine that Skip, a well-know person on the streets of Cambridge and Boston, passed away and that his family was holding a wake/memorial for him this weekend. Does anyone know his full name, where the wake is being held, or contact information for his family?
I remember Skip from my teen years in Harvard Square. He appeared to suffer from Schizophrenia. At times, his words were utter poetry, revealing deep insight into human nature. When I moved back to the area in recent years, I met him again. He seemed to be receiving treatment. I talked with him. He was much more coherent and his big warm loving spirit shone! RIP Skip.
