We've made it safely back home for our annual visit, hanging out with family,
enjoying their slightly cooler weather and we arrived just in time to attend my
high school reunion, afterwards we stopped by
the Continental Flight 3407 Memorial that's at the the end of my parents street.
One of my high school classmates was aboard the plane when it went
down that cold February night in 2009 along with her baby boy.
The kiddos spent time making sure they read all 51 names on the plaque
and the 2 survivors that lived in the house. It brings tears to my eyes
thinking of my friends who had relatives that died in the crash and
our community that lost so many wonderful people in such a tragic way.
Luna kept staring at the engraved image of the house that the plane
landed on, what an incredibly sad legacy our little town has to carry on but
what a wonderful memorial they built so we never forget.
