Ms. Miller was ‘go-to gal’, will be missed

ADVERTISEMENT

I learned through The Triton that I just lost a wonderful friend, and missed a great party [“‘Encyclopedia’ of yacht procurement remembered,” page A7, October issue] . When Claire passed, I was in the Caribbean. I met her when I made captain and she was my go-to gal for everything nautical.
She always came through, amazing. She took me to FLIBS and introduced me to vendors and suppliers so I could establish a personal relationship with them. Her Christmas parties each year were wonderful. She was one of a kind, and will never be replaced. Godspeed Claire.
