'I will never forget'

I am not from Huntington, but I am a West Virginian. I will never forget the news of the crash that November night in 1970. At that time I was married and living in Connecticut. With my husband and two small children we were returning home to Norfolk, Conn. from a visit with relatives in Torrington, Conn. when the news of the crash came over the radio. I will never forget the shock and sadness I felt at the terrible news of the crash. Much later in my life I met and became a friend of a dear person, Jim Proctor, whose parents were lost in the crash. May God bless and comfort Jim, his family and all who suffered the great loss of that night.

Don't forget Jim had two other siblings Courtney, and Patricia who also suffered the loss of their parents. I graduated with their daughter Courtney who was our class president Class of 1982, she was a very sweet, talented, and loved by all of her classmates, and today as well as then she will remain in our prayers and I personally wish her all the happiness that she so rightfully deserves.
