Shipwreck Explorers and Molly V boat had a chance in August of 2009 to take four daughters, whose farther perished in this disaster, over the wreck site.  They shared memories and though a very tragic event, that day was filled with sunshine and the lake was calm.  The flower crown was gently floating over the Carl D. Bradley.  We also had an opportunity to visit with Frank Mays and listen to his story in person.  He is truly a remarkable man and a wonderful story teller.
