"When Woody finally succumbed to Huntington’s disease in 1967, the family decided to scatter his ashes in the ocean where it met the beach on Coney Island. “This spot on the beach had been ours,” remembers Nora. “[It’s] where we built sandcastles with my dad. This is where we all learned to swim and rolled in the waves all those years ago. We felt that this should be my father’s final resting place, just down the block from our Mermaid Avenue home.”
