    What a great idea Liz ---- I wish I could be one of the ones' to carry a NH stone down.
    It's wonderful to see how minds work when we all come together.

    Hi all, it has been a while since I posted an update, but the bench is almost ready to be placed (it took a while to get approval). The bench will be simple as per Linda's request. The money you all donated so generouselly will be enough to cover the bench, placing of the bench at Ol'Blue / Tolo and for maintanance for the next couple of years. As soon as we have pictures, I'll post them here or ask the mods to post them. For those who were not able to visit the ceremony on Bonaire, I placed pictures in an album on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1714101&type=3.

    It took some time, but hey, it is Bonaire...

    The bench was placed today. On the side facing the water is a small stone embedded with Jake's name and years of birth / passing away. As mentioned before the design was kept simple per Linda's request.

    On behalf of Linda, Krystyana and Bas, I would like to thank everybody who made this possible. We still have funds left that can be used for maintanance in the years to come.

    Hi All!
    Thank you so much for making the bench possible. Thanks, Martin, for posting the picture I took yesterday right after the bench was offloaded by a crane truck into position. I hope you all get a chance to come, have a seat, and enjoy the view. And a big thank you to all the folks on island that made the calls and got permission to have the bench placed at Ol' Blue dive site. I don't get on BT much anymore, but I hope you all know that it is still near and dear to my heart as are all of you.
    I better end this message before I get my keyboard any damper.
    Love and Hugs to all,
    Linda
