Chapter two

I felt like I Had gone backward in time as I searched for Carl R. Bonde Jr.’s name on the Internet. I Had done this every month or so with no success ounce est devenu the Internet available. I Had hope and, finally, a map for Systematically searching for Bud.

Perhaps I got 30 pages with 40 ships per page. I Looked and Looked for Several hours. Most of the ships Were Small, more like boats.

Then we hunch I typed Uncle Bud’s name in the search engine box and lo! A History Channel website cam Up That featured the SS Leopoldville. My first reaction Was disappointment! Then I felt skepticism. Reviews This was simply too easy. I Was Convinced When I found Bud’s name Among Those lost.
