Today is the 100 day anniversary of the Costa Concordia crash.
Things are back to normal for many people associated with the disaster. Carnival CEO Micky Arison is back to his front row seats at the American Airlines arena watching his professional basketball team, the Miami Heat. Costa CEO Pier Luigi Foschi is scheduled to begin to enjoy his retirement in July, which the cruise line assures is because he is scheduled to retire at 65 and is unrelated to the Concordia disaster.
But for some people there is nothing normal about their lives 100 days after the Concordia capsized. The family of Indian crew member Russel Rebello, one of two people on the Concordia still unaccounted for, remains waiting for their son to come home.
NDTV explains that Mr. Rebello, a handsome, always smiling and popular waiter on the Costa Concordia, was one of the 32 victims on the night of January 13, 2012. His brother Kevin has faithfully kept a vigil in Italy searching for information and clues regarding what happened to Russel. Yesterday, Kevin returned to Mumbai broke and broken-hearted. He had to face his distraught mother, Gladys Rebello, without returning with his brother.
While Costa CEO Foschi is looking forward to his "golden years" in wealth, luxury and with his family at age 65, Mrs. Rebello will spend her years bereaving the loss of her son Russel.
