In Loving Memory

For those residents that live in the Valley of the Sun and the State of Arizona it became a very sad and tragic day for all. When you get up every morning and come home every evening to watch the days events on the news you expect to see the familiar faces and names of your favorite news channel. Today changed all of that when four well respected men in the news media died when one helicopters turned and suddenly collided into another hovering helicopter. The helicopters went down into Steele Park 9 miles directly down the street from where I live.Your Higher Power never does anything irrationally. The best way to think about this is God thought they were so Damn good at what they did He just had to take them to Heaven and make them Angels with Wings to Fly and watch over everybody else, take pictures and send reports to Him, otherwise all the children and the adults with them, that were in the park earlier would have been killed with that crash.The hearts of the entire State go out to the families of Scott Bowerbank, pilot, and Jim Cox, photographer/reporter from KTVK Channel 3, as well as, Craig Smith, pilot, and Rick Krolak, photographer, KNXV Channel 15, as well as, to all the News Media, Friends, Witnesses and Public that have been devastated by this event.

  1. Condolences go out to the families, friends and witnesses of such a sad and horrific event.

    From Phoenix, you are loved.

  2. OMG! One of the boys in the home I keep for them was watching t.v. He came up to me and asked me “Don’t you know somebody that lives in Phoenix? I gave him that sideways look and being confused over the question I asked him, “Umm, why?” He told me that there was a Chopper crash in Phoenix and 4 people were killed and I needed to look at the t.v.

    I didn’t bother to call you knowing you were at work, I was shocked that it was so close to your house, so I gathered the boys together and they decided, on their own, to hold a prayer meeting for the fallen and those affected by it. We do this prayer meeting everyday for the soldiers in Iraq and their families.

    It made me really realize that these kids come to me as unruly out of control kids, who actually have gotten control and feelings and respect for others.

    I hate to admit this, but the entire story made me cry and the kids made me cry more.

    I pray that Peace comes to the families of those that died and I think it’s wonderful to view them as Angels doing Gods Work with the skills they have.

    From New Mexico, you are loved.

    The Celtic Princess once told me “to make an impact on your life you must use your best skills to impact others and Heaven will open It’s Arms to you when you leave this planet.” The 4 men that died certainly made an impact on others everyday and they are truly loved in Heaven.

  14. Cyfrgolli!!! Computer was down, just back online, cuz, sorry it took so long.

    To the hearts and souls of those who have lost a loved one, and my cousin, the celticprincess and I, are so familiar with that, my heart goes out to you. It’s hard and very painful to unexpectedly lose someone you love so dearly, that when others suffer from the same type of loss, you can’t help but feel their pain. I lost my child at the age of 8.

    Please post this in English, because I just couldn’t think of all the words in English at the moment. This is so sad.

    Cariad nesnes Golau. (Love and Light)

    From Cydweli, Wales you are thought of and loved.

  15. This is really sad!!! I love you so much mommy!!! I’m a kid and I lost my dad 2 years ago. I know what it is like to lose a parent. Little things like this website help make me feel happier. It might not be much for adults, but share it with your kids who have lost a parent. Cartoon Glitters
