We’re saddened to report that Michele Hodgson, a longtime supporter of ILYA and WBYC sailing, and the wife of ILYA Past-Commodore Tom Hodgson passed away on May 2nd after a brief illness.
As Tom posted on his FaceBook page:
“I am deeply sad, but also filled to overflowing with gratitude for the love, prayers, and generosity that has flowed to her these past twelve days. She spent her last week resting comfortably, in the caring hands of a team of friends, hospice professionals, and volunteers, some of whom she trained.
I’m asking our friends to respect my need for privacy right now. There will be a time for community, and we will celebrate her life on Wednesday, May 17 at the Wigington Pavilion on Harriet Island, at 4:00 pm.
Again, please accept my heartfelt thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, and kindness shown to Michele.”
Please join us in keeping Tom and all of Michele’s friends and family in your thoughts and prayers.
