Through Writing and Art: Ken and I Heal November 07 2014 1 Comment

Here you'll find reflections by Ken Fortenberry on his project:

"I created this website in memory of my father, second officer William H. Fortenberry. It is dedicated to the memory of the 44 people who perished on Romance of the Skies" – Ken H. Fortenberry

From Ken Fortenberry; "On the afternoon of November 8, 1957, Pan American Airlines Clipper “Romance of the Skies” vanished in mid-ocean, at the so-called point of no return, halfway between San Francisco and Honolulu.  The pilot’s last transmission, at 5:04 pm local time, indicated that all was well onboard the giant and luxurious Boeing 377 Stratocruiser."

Here is my painting for their salvation at sea "Amazing Grace"

Amazing Grace for Romance of the Skies

All the light & love to you & your loved ones.  I'm hoping no other families suffer a loss like this again.  "Romance of the Skies" we send prayers for peace to you all.  After all these years it still hurts to think about all that loss. 

 

We think about them often, it drives you to dig deeper, & especially today we hold our families closer.
