” I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied And all i ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the seagulls crying”
“Gently rocked by the tide, Cradled in the arms of the sea, Shipmates always. Remembered with pride. Forever at peace with the sea.
Rest In Peace
