Mother, medical social worker, wife of a cancer surviving commercial pilot, and other stuff too

It is every wife's nightmare to wake up and hear news of a plane crash first thing in the morning. First thoughts go to one's own husband. Second thoughts go to every other pilot he's ever flown with, trained with, commuted with or otherwise known. Third thoughts go to the families of the pilots involved. Only then can one exhale that breath they took when they first heard the news.
My thoughts and condolences are with the crew who took that final flight west and their families.
"To fly west, my friend, is a flight we all must take for a final check"
