13 December 2011
On Sunday Dec. 11th a memorial to celebrate Jan's life was held at the school where she worked for over sixteen years. It was attended by family and friends from the school, swim club, tennis club and cruisers that we have met on our journey. I wish to thank all the people that attended and those who were their in thoughts and prayers. Your notes and cards are a comfort to me and my family.
Eight bells and all is well, your watch is over sleep well my love......

Update about Triple Stars

12 November 2011
Hello everyone this post is by their daughter Kristen. As many of you already know yesterday November 11 there was a weather related accident and my mom was swept off the boat. My dad called in a mayday and the Coast Guard was dispatched right away. My dad was rescued by a freighter boat and is safe aboard it. As of now the search and rescue for my mom is continuing. She is a very strong woman like all of you know and we are still praying that they are able to find her. I will attach the link to the Coast Guard website that has already posed one press release. Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers and I will try to update everyone as much as I can.
