Remembering Our Brothers
The Rigzone Family would like to extend its sincerest condolences to the families and friends affected by the Deepwater Horizon Tragedy. No words we write can possibly bring comfort to those who are hurting so deeply. However, we can remember their lives and make sure they are never forgotten. Please join with us to commemorate our fallen brethren with your comments and condolences.
The life an oilfield worker leads is not an easy one. Few professions lead you away from your loved ones for two weeks, one month, or longer at a time. We work in the loneliest of locations and the work is not easy. However, we do it for our families. No sacrifice is too great for their welfare.
Some will remember these 11 men as loving fathers, devoted husbands, and caring sons. Some will remember them as hard workers and good friends. All of us will remember them as heroes who valiantly did everything they could to save their colleagues and vessel. Just as they stepped up, it is now our turn to step up and ensure their loved ones are taken care of. Transocean has set up a site to help facilitate donations to the families that are in so much pain. Please give what you can at deepwaterhorizoncondolences.com. Every dollar makes a difference.
