    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    A comment from the 1st link suggests that this could be Michael Ray Myers. He and his wife were swept off of a jetty in Yaquina Bay on Wednesday, 10 November. His wife was found drowned. His body had not been recovered.

    The body was positively ID'd as Michael Ray Myers.



    Human remains found Nov. 24 in the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area south of Yachats have been identified as those of a Southeast Portland man, the Oregon State Police reported Friday.

    How sad! What a beautiful area. It feels like you can live forever when you're there.

    Rest in peace, Michael!

    I agree, Kimster - it's one of my favorite spots along the coast. The story of these two is absolutely heartbreaking. Just unbelievably tragic.
