To the Wilder family, I met Nancy when I worked on the Surfmaster III with Captain Phillips. She was an incredible woman and a great fisherwoman. I'm sorry for your loss

Spook and Bill, I will always remember your mother as the coolest mom in Little Compton. She was so full of life and laughter always. She was given huge trials, but she was always courageous and gracious, her eyes were always sparkling, and her smile lit the room. What an athlete! What a great "broad."
