WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A memorial service for a Connecticut woman who was lost at sea during a fishing trip with her son will take place this week after all, but at an undisclosed location.

An attorney for Linda Carman’s son, Nathan Carman, tells the Hartford Courant that friends and family have been invited to a private service on Wednesday morning.

Nathan Carman was rescued by a freighter about 100 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard after the boat he and his mother were on sank during the weekend of Sept. 17.

A memorial Mass was originally scheduled at a church in West Hartford, but church officials said it was canceled. Linda Carman’s sisters released a statement questioning the memorial service with the sinking still under investigation by multiple police agencies.
