To the Editor:
I was saddened to hear about the passing of an important island resident, Mrs. Margaret Fugate.
I was very lucky to spend quite a lot of time with Margaret, as she was one of my favorite art students in the “Forget-Me-Not” program at the church for the past few years.
We painted, drew and played kickball – I watched Margaret unfold, relax and enjoy her time making art with me.
I have always felt that there are unusual people in the world, and it's worth spending time with them, because their insight and experience can change your life. Margaret Fugate was one of those people and I feel very fortunate to have had the time I did with her.
I send my heartfelt condolences to her family as I know she will be greatly missed by everyone who ever knew her.
