“I first met Skelly a year before Occupy started.  He was a friend of my son’s and was over helping him with his bike.  My impression of Skelly was that he was someone that his friends could always depend on.  An incident with Skelly that touched my heart happened at Occupy.  One night at the food tent, a homeless family consisting of a woman and her two small children came by.  She stated that her eyes were bad and asked if someone could help identify the correct bus to get on.
