Shelburne memorial

Dozens of families turned out yesterday at the Fishermen’s Memorial in Shelburne to honour those who have died at sea.

The CBC reports the first names etched on the stones on that monument James F. Demings and William H. Demings, who died at sea on Jan. 5, 1856.  The final name is Jim Buchanan who went overboard last January.

There were prayers and music.  Then family members tossed flowers on the waves in memory of lost loved ones.
