Winter 2008 - 2009: Anni Green
As I said in our editorial, Rosy lost her brother Merritt in mid-November, 2008.
Merritt lived on the water and for the water. A sailor always, his greatest fortune was in his mate – Anni Green.
In December, Anni hosted a memorial at their home on the Magothy River, and Merritt’s father Joe held a similar service in Florida. Anni handled both with dignity and grace, making a terrible time better for her husband’s friends and family. At what must have been her most difficult moments, Anni proved herself a one hundred per cent class act.
She’s not an Sfer, just a light unto her friends and family, and this Challenger salutes her.
