Condolences from Homer Alaska For Heavy D’s Family and Friends

Dear Joe,

I was saddened to learn of Heavy D’s death, the news of which just reached us yesterday.

I hope you will convey the condolences of our Homer fishing community here in Alaska to his family and friends.

The wide waters of the oceans

Wrap the world around

And the strong embraces

Of Brother Fishermen reach every small dock.

We will lay a wreath and say our prayers here at our Seafarer’s Memorial on Homer Spit in Kachemak Bay, where my brother-in-law and several dear crewmen are remembered.

With our continued wishes,
