Last week we lost one of our beach friends. He was sick. We knew it would be soon. The last time we saw him was here, he was so sick, but insisted on having a party. Because he loved a party. And he often said, "When life gives you lemons, make a Lemon Drop Martini!" I am sad. Our beach circle will never be the same. He would come to the beach late in the afternoon, with a cooler in hand. We would cheer when we saw him come over the dunes. When he arrived Happy Hour on the beach officially started. He would sit down next to his wife, always, and open the cooler, out would come his penguin cocktail shaker with some delicious cocktail to share with all of us! I am going to miss him.
