Thanks for sharing your story.
Could almost picture myself there reading your story. Definately some emotion in your story.
That is no doubt the bow piece from the ship.
I think its hard for some to see she is finally gone.
The site that is auctioning the bow on feb 8-9th is also auctioning a lot of other ss France/Norway pieces.
If you click search and then click the box to France Noway you'll see all the things they are auctioning off.
