Recovered and recovering

The remaining 16 bodies have been recovered from the Cougar 491 wreck by the Transport Safety Board. Using a remote operated vehicle (ROV) it must have been a delicate operation to retrieve the people inside the fuselage. Good job on doing that, folks. This was done quickly. Now the families will at least have their own back in physical form, and perhaps some consolation in saying their good byes in their own traditional normal way. As someone who has not experienced the bodily shock of a direct family member being lost in such a way, it must feel like being involved in a paralyzing accident - the life left, one which requires living with a missing part, and chronic pain. Wishing the grieving families in NL, BC and NS healing and peace.
