MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A memorial service is set for 10 a.m. Saturday in White Bear Lake for Gerald and Barbara Heil, the couple who have yet to be found after the Costa Concordia went aground in Italy.

The family of Gerald and Barbara Heil posted its final blog Wednesday afternoon, saying that there will be a visitation at 9 a.m. Saturday with a service to follow at 10 a.m. at St. Pius the X Catholic Church.

They were aboard the Costa Concordia when it ran aground on Jan. 14. Their bodies were never found, and now the family is saying their final goodbyes this weekend.

“We will begin the process of moving forward with the grieving and healing process.  We continue to try and follow the example set forth by our parents as we accept God’s plan,” the family says in the blog post.

The family said memorials are preferred over flowers or plants and will go places and causes of meaning to Gerald and Barbara Heil.

The family also said barring any major developments, there won’t be any additional updates to the blog.
