"her son said in a statement released through the local police."

It's sad that this is how it ended for his mother, but at least there is closure.

Good for the family concerned. Others likely to turn up over the coming years. Back in 2011 the TV coverage was showing people being swept away by the tsunami. It was truly horrific and heart felt. 10 anniversary will be hard for all those who suffered lost.

Closure is important. My auntie didn’t get it for my cousin 25 years ago and she became nuts.

So sad, what happened. But I am glad that she can finally be put to rest and, as her son said, her family move on.
