Oil spill victims to be honored at memorial in Jacksonville, MS

Motley Rice LLC would like to join the international community in offering its deepest sympathy and condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the 11 men who tragically lost their lives on April 20, 2010, as a result of the oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the rigorous steps being taken to investigate the cause of the disaster and address the resulting economic and environmental consequences, there has yet to be a national pause on behalf of our country's human loss.

On Tuesday, May 25, 2010, Transocean will be holding a memorial service at the Jackson Convention Center in Jacksonville, MS at 1:00 p.m. (CDT) to bring together families, friends, fellow crew members and others touched by the oil rig tragedy in remembrance of the men who perished. We encourage all to take a moment on this day to honor these men and support the people and communities so closely affected by this momentous loss.
