A thank you from the Liger family

John Liger of Orcas Island passed away on Nov. 13 at his home. He loved the island and its diverse people. It was his home for 42 years.

A big thank you to Orcas EMTs; Island Air; Gina Wegner, RN; Dr. Dave Shinstrom and OFHC staff; and Hospice Northwest. It’s been a tough year but you made it possible. Thank you so much, Ron Myers; Carl Burger; and Overton Berry for your friendships with John and great musical times.

Also so helpful were Jamie and Heidi at Orcas Senior Center; Kevin Doyle; Kirk Huffman and family; and so many others. A very special thank you to Molly, Janine, Suzi Rose and Tweety – John’s wonderful caregivers. A big hug and thank you to my wonderful niece and friend Colleen Billings.
