A friend passes

A Crofton sunrise - for Char

Char Nickerson is part of the reason my transition to the island was so easy even though I knew very few people here. I rented her guest suite while house hunting in Crofton, and from that moment on she made me feel welcome. She invited me to parties, made the world’s best liver treats for my dogs, shared stories over a glass or two or three of scotch. She had a big heart and a warm smile. She loved sunrises and she loved Crofton. She had lived here pretty much her whole life.

Char passed away in her sleep early this morning, after a long battle with cancer. Some would say cancer won. But Char is the real winner, for she left a mark on this community that will not be forgotten. She made a difference in the lives of many. She will be very greatly missed.

My deepest condolences to her family.
