Last month we said good-by to very good friend. Lin "Doc" Andrews succumbed to cancer. Doc was a veterinarian with the US Department of Agriculture. Originally from the mountains of Montana, Doc lived here on the island for more than 25 years. He was a musician, a fine, fine jazz bass player. He was a surfer. Jobos was his favorite surf break. Some days he only had the strength to paddle out and just sit in the lineup, then catch one little wave to take him back to the beach.
As family and friends gathered on the beach, tossing flowers into the surf, several surfer friends paddled out and released part of his ashes into the waves at Jobos. Doc is now forever part of the lineup at the break he loved so much.
Farewell, Doc. We miss you.
