“The best repayment to your parents is not material possessions, but the duty you show as their sons and daughters in relieving them of burdens”.
An enduring gem of wisdom that Captain Dan Gruta left as parting words to children of seafarers as he closed a mentoring session with students of Saint Pancras Academy, a progressive school south of Manila.
In a feature article from the Maritime Review titled Capt.
