National Fisherman

Two weeks of memorial services for the five fishermen lost on the Miss Ally will end with a final service, one for Katlin Nickerson on Saturday, March 16 at the Calvary Baptist Church in Woods Harbour.

Pastor Phil Williams says it has been a difficult week for the community.

"There has been great sorrow and sadness," he said.

Last week, services were held for Joel Hopkins and Steven Cole Nickerson. A service was also held on Sunday at the Barrington Arena for Tyson Townsend.

The memorial service for Billy Jack Hatfield will be held Thursday, March 14 at 2 p.m. at Huskilson's Funeral Home Barrington.

Nickerson's service will start at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Woods Harbour at the Calvary Baptist Church, with overflow seating at the nearby Wesleyan Church. The service will also be streamed live on the Internet.
