46 years ago yesterday, the Edmund Fitzgerald left Burlington Northern Railroad Dock No. 1 in Superior Wisconsin. 46 years ago this evening she was lost with all 29 hands 17 miles north-northwest of Whitefish Point, Michigan.

Does any one know where the love of God goes
When the waves turn the minutes to hours?


Anyone who has spent time on the water can relate to this line. I can't imagine what it would have been like on the Fitz. May the 29 rest in peace.

My family moved to Bay Village, Ohio -- on the shore of Lake Erie -- shortly after the Fitz went down. I was 6. I remember my parents and neighbors talking about a lady down the street whose husband was lost on that ship.
