On that day, we welcomed Jamie and Char to Pelican Bay. On this day, we wave goodbye to our dear friend Jamie Brown.

There are people in this world that touch your heart. Jamie touched the hearts of so many here in SW Florida. He was our best friend and traveling companion for many years. We made some great memories, sitting on a sandbar drinking beers and telling stories.

We lost count of the multiple surgeries, chemo and radiation treatments he went through, but through it all, he lived life on his own terms. His boat was his freedom. His lifestyle was his escape from all the dramas of modern life.

His best “Grumpy Cat” impersonation. Somehow, Jamie made people happy just by his presence. He was a friendly guy, and he gave his friendship freely to anyone and everyone he encountered.

Our world was certainly a better place with him in it.

Kim and I were able to visit with him this week. I got the chance to tell him that I loved him. He said, “I love you too”. He was not in pain and his passing was peaceful. God bless his gal Char for being there for him. She’s been through a lot over the past few years. I have to give her great credit for being a steadfast caretaker.

We will miss seeing Bay Dreamer anchored nearby. We will miss our friend.

Sail on Jamie. We love you.
