View Full Version : A Toast to E.Fitz

11-10-2008, 08:19 PM
Toast goes out to the 29 men who lost their lives on this day November 10, 1975 at about this time (7:25pm) on Lake Superior.

Me and a few friends always make it a point to call each other on this day and have a drink in the memory of those on the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Thoughts and prayers are always with you all. :toast:
