Ode to Fellow Hashers

As many of you are aware, we lost a family member on Sunday, March 31 when Bill Martin passed away peacefully with his family at his side after a battle with cancer.  Although this is a very sad time, it is comforting to reflect on a life lived long and very well and he will never be forgotten by his family and countless friends.  Despite his health and treatments Chili Willie remained active, attending hashes and Jets games, right to the very end and was the absolute model of a strong and positive attitude.  His wife really wanted us to pass on that the memories, phone calls and emails from the hash put a big smile on his face on some very difficult days.  Although we will not have the pleasure of his company at future runs, there will always be a place for him in our circle.  Click on the links below to view poems to Chilly and what he meant to us.
