As our dream unfolds, I want everyone to know the great man behind it. Your continued presence in my life is making our dream a reality. In a few short months, our beautiful new boat will be here. Though your physical presence will be absent from one of our helm seats, your spiritual presence will forever be beside me, guiding me safely through every passage.
Each time the engines come to life and I switch on the generator, I'll remember the countless discussions we had about them, the fun conversations we had about where we would take this boat and the future we envisioned as liveaboards. Were it not for your vision, I would never have come to love boating, and specifically boating on a Kadey Krogen yacht.
My continuing on with our dream will forever be testimony to my love for you, for the life we shared for over 42 years - all this made possible because of your role in shaping me into the person I am today.
Rest peacefully my love. Forever may you know fair winds and following seas.
