Memorial Trip for Thomas

Last weekend, we did a trip to Pulau Aur on the MV Quest in memory of Thomas. The folks from Living Seas made a marble plaque with a poem written for Thomas. The first 2 dives of the day were used to scout for an appropriate place to lay the plaque. The third dive was dedicated to lowering the plaque to the sea bed and putting it in place. We then laid some parting gifts and said our goodbyes. It was an emotional dive, with some divers fighting tears. But an appropriate one given Thomas' love for the sea and the desire to to say goodbye in a significant way.

Rest in peace, Thomas.

Photos and video of the memorial dive to come later.
