On Saturday, a man who was an experienced pilot was taking his daughter back to college. Another daughter and a family friend accompanied them.
They didn't make it, crashing in poor weather in a soybean field.
As the daughter of a pilot, I am thankful this was never my family.
My sincerest and heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of those four victims, whose lives were tragically cut short.
Hug your kids and parents a little harder tonight.
