I saw the interview on the Weather Channel of three of the survivors and I was impressed by the engineer Barksdale. You can tell a lot about a person by their friends and if Barksdale was an example then your Dad was a fine person and will be missed by many.
Thank you.
I am not naive enough to think people wont say negative things which is why I feel the need to defend when I can. I know people are going to question and blame, it is human nature. If I can correct any misconceptions then I feel I am honoring my stepfather and protecting my mother.
