'We grew up fast'

I was a freshman at Marshall on Nov. 14,1970.My husband was a senior.We had just started dating. I will never forget the crash like many others who were on campus but it was especially memorable for me because my husband's best friend was one of the players. His best friend was Marcello Lajterman. We had also just been lavaliered the night before. It was a shocking night for everyone but I had a new boyfriend going through a difficult time and I was only 18 years old! We grew up fast that weekend.
