DSC_1109Dear CAMA Family,

I am writing to inform you of the great loss of a friend, mentor, and former president of CAMA. Phil Skellie passed away suddenly Wednesday, February 22 in the late afternoon while he was out on a walk. It would appear he had a heart attack.

There was someone nearby who attempted to resuscitate him, but Phil was already with the Lord. Phil’s wife Becky learned of his passing shortly after, and a number of friends and colleagues were with her and her son last evening.

The reality of Phil’s passing is still “so unbelievable.” As the shock begins to wear off, we will all deeply grieve the loss of our good friend.

Please be in prayer today for Becky and her three children as she must go through the difficult steps of making arrangements.

With a sorrowful heart,

Mike Sohm
President, CAMA Services
