And, he is a hero William Denton Cox was the only crew member who went down into third class, and helped people get out if he hadn’t have gone down many people would have died, and subsequently he died. So he this area was all beaten down the photographs if you had a nickel for every photo that was taken of this stone people left love letters they left flowers they still leave money as you can see some people even left women’s lingerie here for him.
