I too had this read at my mother's memorial service in 1982. Her love of
the sea and her understanding of the connection among us all is so
beautifully captured in Whitman's verse. He simultaneously grieves loss and
celebrates humanity.

It harkens to the Hebrew tradition of tossing your torn shirt, worn through
7 days of mourning, into the ocean upon the passing of a loved one.

My niece read this at the memorial service for her
boyfriend who was lost in the Pacific ocean while
swimming. It was a very powerful moment for all of
us who were present. She opened this book to this
poem and knew she had to read it at the service.
