One more beautiful page of this world story is turned. Norma McCabe has died!
While fighting desperately the difficulties of a newcomer in this country, I was moved to hear her talks about the courageous life of the light keepers.
They had families, and one could understand through her touching admiration for her husband how much devotion, seriousness, and courage this profession demanded of those who were ‘serving the light’.
Then as a foreigner who was discovering the sea world with its nature, culture, and people, elegant Norma’s words describing the daily activities of these men with the support of their wives living on isolated rocks, facing storms as well as sunrises, with their impressive sense of duty, made me full of respect for light keepers and those who serve the sea world at large.
I humbly thank you, Norma, for having been such an harmonious and dynamic human light at their sides, and having enthusiastically diffused around you the light of knowledge. May your soul in its smooth trip to eternity reach that of your husband, which has certainly been waiting for you under the sublime light with, in the background, the choir of some angels.
