I would like to thank each and every one of you for all the kindnesses shown to Rick, our sons and their families, and Holli and I. The gifts of errands, meals, phone calls, visits, messages, cards, prayers, flowers and money were very much appreciated. Lance, Anna, Ryan, Arron, Jason C. thank you for coordinating gear retrieval and a huge thank you to all the captains and crews for bringing the gear home̷… that task being completed was a relief to Rick. Thank you to those who organized and attended the community prayer event at the Fish Pier and for all the encouraging, sweet, personal notes that were written at that event and sent home to us. A special thank you to my co-workers at the Town Office for always being so accommodating of my needs while Rick was sick; going above and beyond to cover my slack. Kathleen and the Selectmen; I will never be able to repay your generosity! I know that there are many more people who did things for us without us even knowing and for that I say thank you, as well. Three months have flown by in the blink of an eye. I did not want more time to pass without letting you all know how humbled I am by the kindness, caring and love that has been and continues to be bestowed upon me.

Last week I traveled from Vermont to Bucksport to sign papers which sold my parents' house on the Castine Road. My parents, Ed and Mary Jane, owned a total of four (!) houses in Castine over the past 50 years, so it was a bittersweet experience…signing off after all those years of friendship and summertime fun in Castine. To our many friends…the Millers will miss you, even though many of us haven't been able to spend much time in Castine in recent years. Perhaps our travels will take us back to Castine in the future, particularly since my sister Jane (Saltsman) will soon be buying a house in Penobscot. Thanks in particular to those who visited and helped my parents in their recent years of declining health. It is appreciated. Best wishes from all of the so-called “first tee” Millers.

Many, many, thanks to the Castine fire department and all the helpers especially my daughter, Amy to help implement a plan so I could observe the L'Hermione and some of the festivities on Wednesday July 15. The extra thoughts and care to help some of us that are less mobile to be a part of the festivities in town are very appreciated.

Huge thanks, Nina Stewart
