When "Thank You" is not enough
We all have a list of words we never want to hear.
"Missing Diver" is on my list.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the searchers. The personnel at the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue stations are volunteers. Without them this story would have had a much different ending, one that is difficult to contemplate.
