My brother and I fulfilled my mothers last wish and I made a cement cast in the shape of a heart and placed her ashes in it. We then held a memorial service for her on mothers day of 2007 and we placed her heart on the flightdeck of the Oriskany at 138 fsw. This summer solstice (June 21) I will be making an attempt to touch her heart while freediving.
Also, as a footnote, out of respect and honor for those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice aboard the USS Oriskany I have placed the American and POW flags on her yardarm at 85 fsw. I maintain them on a constant basis to make sure they are represented in a good light.
