It has been said that the chambers of a seashell can hold the souls of the dead until they are returned to the place they were born. In the old days, sailors would bring back seashells from faraway places hoping to return the dead to their rightful homes and to avoid curses if they didn't. After the Civil War had ended in 1865, there had been a ship accident near the shores of a faraway island. Most of the members on board were able to swim ashore onto another island and was eventually saved. But two members aboard that failed ship, a mother and child, were never found and were presumed lost at sea.
Rest in peace, mother and child, you are finally home. Rest in peace.
