The latest news updates state that all 49 passengers including crewmembers did not survive, however, the residents of the home did make it out alive. This along with any other tragic event really churns my stomach over and over. I know first hand what it's like to lose loved ones at the snap of a finger without any warning and to think about all of their family/friends now having to deal with the heart wrenching reality is very, very saddening. My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy goes out to all of the victims and those affected by this event.

I agree TG, My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy goes out to all those affected as well....

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
