One Year After Comair Crash Flight 5191, Family and Friends Gather in Memory

It was one year ago today when Comair Flight 5191 crashed taking the lives of 49 people aboard.

Today, families and friends gathered to remember the victims and visit the crash site.

The day started with a private memorial service for families at a Lexington home. It was a chance for them to be together and grieve for those they lost.

It has been one year for us all, but for the families it has been a very short time for them to grieve. As Vice President of Counseling Services with Hospice, Sherry Weisenfluh deals with grief daily she says at this mornings service many families were depending and leaning on one another.

After the service, the families made a trip up the long hill to the crash scene. Some of them choosing to visit the site searching for peace as well as healing.

Shuttles have been coming and going from the crash site most Monday afternoon.

27NEWSFIRST has a copy of a responsive reading they did at the private ceremony this morning, and at the end it reads:

"As long as we live, they too will live. For they are now a part of us as we remember them."

    Thank you for doing such a great job on the 5191 crash. I have now seen the same photos, videos and news stories at least 25 times and maybe more. While I know of the great lose and there is no way to remove the pain of that event, I do feel that if everyone did not have to relive the event every week and month, many could find closure. Let's face it, this is all about making money. How many more newspapers can we sell? How will this inprove our viewership? How can we sell more flowers? How can we sell more hotel rooms, transportation, improve the law suits and the list is endless. There are some that are leaches on those left behind from the crash when they are the most weak. Can we PLEASE move ON?
