Remembering the Fitz again!

This blog post I just came across reminded me what today is -- which I almost forgotten.  Yes, indeed. Miss Kathy Schiffer's timely blog " Where the Love of God Goes: The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" in Patheos told a nice story of seeing and photographing the big boat passing through the Soo  Lock in 1973 -- only years later did she realized that was the Fitz she and her husband saw.  The article naturally also included a video of the legendary song of Gordon Lightfoot. Which she hightlighted in particular these two lines
Does anyone know where the love of God goes
When the waves turn the minutes to hours…
So read the article and hearing the song we relived that fateful event once again. And I would like to also share her thoughts and prayer here:

. . . I remember that these men—most in their 40s or 50s, and some as young as 21—were not planning to die that day.  They left loving wives, children, parents, and friends, drawn to the depths of the sea and the arms of their Creator.  Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.

Amen
