"My Heart Sank Tonight" for you are no longer here in sight. The ebb and flow of Port below, shined brightly tho' as dredge and cranes continued so. But yet, a Void amidst the Crew--the Captain's set sail for his last farewell. ~L. Gethard Thank you Bill for your Courage, Strength, Perseverance and Great Will to share your enduring Friendship. Peace be with you.
