Private service set for woman lost at sea in boat sinking
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A memorial service for a Connecticut woman who was lost at sea during a fishing trip with her son will take place this week after all, but at an undisclosed location.
An attorney for Linda Carman’s son, Nathan Carman, tells the Hartford Courant (http://cour.at/2ezVV2c ) that friends and family have been invited to a private service on Wednesday morning.
A memorial Mass was originally scheduled at a church in West Hartford, but church officials said it was canceled. Linda Carman’s sisters released a statement questioning the memorial service with the sinking still under investigation by multiple police agencies.
Nathan Carman was rescued by a freighter about 100 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard after the boat he and his mother were on sank during the weekend of Sept. 17.
