Celebration for Skip Leabo on Nov. 11

The following comes from the Leabo family:

"In the time of your life, live."

—William Saroyan

Dear Friends and Family,

Please join us for a special gathering celebrating the life and times of Skip Leabo. This will be a very informal event (he wouldn't have wanted it any other way!) to share stories, special moments and drink a toast or two to a great husband, father, teacher, mentor, and friend.

Date: Sunday, November 11
Time: 5:30-7:30 PM
Location: Shady Springs Party Barn in Austin, TX

Directions: http://www.shadyspringspartybarn.com/Map.htm

Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

We also invite you to contribute your own thoughts, stories, pictures, or any other memories of Skip for inclusion in a special memory book. Submit your contributions electronically (preferably before November 2) to sgilmore@nbcc.net or feel free to bring them to the event and we will include them then. And, please, even if you are unable to attend, we would still love to have your contributions.

Please RSVP to Kathy: 361-552-9431 (home), 361-935-9431 (cell) or reply via email to: skip.leabo@gmail.com .

And, as the years have passed, so have many of our contacts, so please, if you know of any other friends who loved, learned from, or otherwise simply enjoyed the company of Skip, please let them know of this event (but ask them to be sure to let us know they're coming!).

We look forward to seeing you!


Kathy, Pete, Andy, and Kris

P.S. Kids are welcome to come too! There's plenty of room to run and play on the grounds, but the pool will not be open.

P.P.S. For those of you coming from out of town, Shady Springs is conveniently located close to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. A number of hotels located within 3-4 miles from the airport are available at www.hotels.com.
