  • Prayers for the loved ones

  • “Decomposed” means he’s been in the water for a while. God bless the first responders and coroner’s staff who have had to deal with this. It’s not just the sight, it’s the smell that lingers in your nostrils for days, then leaves a permanent mark on your mind and soul just like the things you witness there that afterward you can’t unsee. Peace be with the family of this lost soul and with all the field personnel at the scene, and with our first responders.
