IN MEMORIAM

THOR HEYERDAHL

October 6, 1914 - April 18, 2002

"The wind has died down. The sails have been lowered.

The steering oar has been taken over by a greater arm.

At the shore, Thor is resting until the Morning of the Resurrection.

Lord our God, How great is Thy name over all the Earth!"

- Bishop Gunnar Stålsett , State Funeral for Thor Heyerdahl, 26 April 2002, Oslo
