5. Full authority of these orders is part of the divine plan of the Almighty contained in
St. John 14. l-4: Let not your hearts be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go you know, and the way you know.
Additional information for those on deck to follow.

It was a privilege to serve with this shipmate and be a part of his early years. To the family and friends, may you be comforted in knowing he is and will be remembered in many ways but most of all his poetry he gave to the crew.
