July through September, 2020

September 2 was the anniversary of daughter-in-law Kristy's death. Many family members shared a moment of silence to commemorate the sad occasion. The boat fire was one of the worst tragedies to befall Santa Barbara and the city conducted several observances of the tragedy; we were able to watch these via video streams. Sons Paul and Dan joined a large group of divers representing the many people who died for a dive at the accident site. There is a memorial plaque on the sea floor at the site listing the names of the victims. Dan posed for this picture next to the plaque. There is a similar plaque at the breakwater in the harbor in Santa Barbara.
