The Willis family has left a zillion fond memories for all of us!!! I just told Lynn, & she’s sad, too! That’s where we first “met” her...the girl my son said he was going to marry! So, we ate there several times a week to “check her out”!!!☺️😉 They just celebrated 30 years together!

Gotta make a new life!! I’m in fla too!! Not like St. John but!!!! Have a great holiday!! Love to your family!! Aaron get better!!!♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

We wish you the best and hope for wonderful new beginnings. Please keep us posted on where you end up. So fond of our memories.

Thank you for the update! We will miss you all so very much! Our favorite restaurant on St. John and the best place to buy fresh fish to cook! We wish you all the best and good luck with your new beginnings! Hugs to you all!

Many fond memories of the Willis family and The Fish Trap. Thank you and best to you in your new ventures. St. John won’t be the same without you.

Thanking you for the many years of service and blessing you with hope , joy, & peace!Varlack Family

Fair winds! Will miss you but this has been a game changer for so many! It’s meant to be somehow. You will be successful wherever you go.

You KNOW how much I’m going to miss you! Sorry I didn’t give that extra hug to Lisa last week! Take care of yourselves, and come back, at least for a visit before Nathan gets too big! Love you all

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happier new year. So sorry to read about all your troubles, but so glad Aaron is feeling better. Lots of love. Anna and Hans.

You will be dearly missed...best of health and happiness to your family. 😘

I don’t know whether to be happy or sad! I guess I’m both - I’m happy for your new life, but sad for love City...

So sorry to hear that Fish Trap will not be reopening. My husband and I have enjoyed some wonderful dinners there. Best wishes as you pursue a new path.

Was always a pleasure to enjoy a meal and table side conversation with you. Will certainly miss you not being there. Take care, God bless and the very best to your family! Thank you.

One of my favorite memories was having dinner twice at your restaurant with best friend, Susan Lanza. Good luck to you!

Wishing you the best on your new adventure. Take good care of each other. You new home is lucky to have you.

I am so sad to hear this. Our visits will not be the same without the scallops. Wishing you and your family the best new adventures.

Best of luck and love always!

I am so sorry to hear that. God closes a chapter and opens a new open. Trust in Him and his Will. Frank and I will miss seeing you and your beautiful family at service and Bible study when we get back to St. John.

Oh no!! We are sad to see this. The Fish Trap was always a favorite of ours. Blessings to you all as you go into this new chapter in your lives.

We are so sorry to hear this news! We will miss The Fish Trap and your wonderful family. Best of luck to you all!!

We will miss our favorite spot to eat... I will always brag about my special scallop dinners you made for me! Much love to you, Aaron, Lisa and Nathan, and best wishes for a bright and happy future. Get Lisa a better coat and try to keep Nathan playing tennis! 💗

Aaron and family, St. John will not be the same without all of you on that little corner of the road. Our very best to you! Hope you're taking our fish family with you 🙂 but if not, which is my guess, they had a great run with you and they always made us feel very connected to the Fish Trap.

And we will miss you terribly. You have taken great care of us over the years - we never once had a meal that was less than stellar. We wish you the best of luck as you start this new chapter of your lives.

We hope for the best for the 3 of you as a new chapter in your life begins, but will miss you on St John. May you have a Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year.

Best of luck, 23 years ago we had our wedding dinner, the Nicely-Dunn wedding party Will never forget how gracious you were God Bless
