Renee Nolan was a server at Gilchrist Offshore Restaurant in Galloway. Sadly, she has passed away.

My heart is so broken for the entire Gilchrist family. My husband and I have breakfast at the restaurant's Galloway location pretty much every Sunday. I'd been loosely aware of Renee's declining health, but she seemed to recover for a time. But on Thursday, she passed away.

I will really, really miss her face. She seemed like a great lady, always smiling even on hectic Gilchrist mornings, and I also appreciated her level of sarcasm. She was someone you could joke around with.

I didn't know her personally, but I could tell she had a bright light inside of her, and it pains me to know that light has been extinguished.

My thoughts are with Renee Nolan's family and friends, her co-workers, and all the patrons of the Gilchrist that knew her. She will be missed.
