Bagpiper plays from the deck of the Westcott.

A bell was rung 29 times,
once for each seaman lost on the Fitz.

29 lanterns at water’s edge honored each crewmember.

Tug Magnetic broke out the flags
 for the occasion.

River Rouge councilman Tony Laginess and Ed Domanski, who helped build the Fitzgerald at Great Lakes Engineering Works, remember the Fitz. Domanski was on board when the vessel was launched and can be seen in the photo he is holding.
