No more a Watch to stand. Old Sailor.
For you are drifting on an ebbing tide
Eight Bells has rung. Dog Watch is done.
A new Berth waits you on the other side.

Your Ship is anchored in God’s Harbour.
And though his sailors are of equal rank
there ‘ll be Shipmates on the deck to greet you.
And Pipe, as you ascend the Plank….

Her boilers with full head of steam
Cargo stowed and Galley stored
Just waiting to get underway.
When the last Hand comes aboard.

Look sharp! That Hand is you. Old Sailor.
And you’ll be ailing out of Heavenly Seas.
So may the wind be ever at you back.
Fair weather. And God speed!

Sincere Condolences to the Lane Family.
Bill was a special friend to our family over the years. He was called upon many times and especially when my Mom wanted an update on the Fogo Island ferry.
We sure enjoyed our visits together since Bill and Josephine moved to Gander.
We will miss Bill and his stories. God Bless.
Jerome and Bridget.
