    Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood Upon the chaos dark and rude, And bid its angry tumult cease, And give, for wild confusion, peace; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea!

    Rest in peace Sailor, and for ALL those young people who served and still serve in Iraq and Afghanistan my heartfelt thank you for your sacrifice.
