Default Re: Milwaukee Part Deux

It's true that a quick Google search shows that the Edmund Fitzgerald did indeed launch in June of 1958 from River Rouge, MI. So I'm not sure exactly what Gord had in mind. There is a strong Milwaukee connection, as the father of the insurance exec for whom the ship was named was the owner of the Milwaukee Drydock Co. I also learned this past summer that he had owned a house on Nagawicka Lake, west of Milwaukee, just down the road from where my in-laws have lived for many years.

Thank you all for your concern and kindness regarding my migraines. Misery may love company, but it also provides opportunities to be empathetic and compassionate, which is one of the many things I love about this site.
