Hello Brian and Mary... I found the lovely memorial card for your son and his comrades in Central Park (NYC). I was deeply touched by the idea. I grew up in NY but now live in Florida, so I decided to bring it back to Florida. I brought it to the beautiful marina in Tarpon Springs, FL (Tampa area).
It is one of my favorite places to visit because it is a beautiful sponge dock district. Many boats here bring back many types of beautiful sea sponges which are displayed and sold to the public. There is also a large population of Greeks living here. There are rows and rows of authentic Greek restaurants (my favorite food), friendly people, and beautifully relaxing scenery.
I hope your son’s journey does not end here. I'm sure the next person who finds this card will be as touched as I have been and take him to another wonderful place.
