The Skinner Family Park Bench
Christmas 2016 - The Skinner Family on the Skinner Family Park Bench

For Frank’s birthday in October, I donated a park bench to the City of Huntington Beach which was placed in Fahrquar Park (close to our home). Although I had planned on using one of his favorite sayings for the plaque (like “The fun train is leaving!”), he said that he preferred that it say “The Skinner Family – Frank, Donna, Emma and Sophie.” (The dogs, present and past, are included because they are the ones that have joined us as we walk through our neighborhood and city parks.)
