I agree Kev.. I love this pic of Robbie...

This is really sad news...
It's still hard to believe and the sadness only becomes worse as it's learned that Robbie wasn't the only tie I had to this crash. I knew Robbie Cannon but not his family, I didn't know pilot Joe McCormick but it turns out that his inlaws are old family friends. Joe leaves behind a wife, 3 boys and a 3 week old daughter..... I remember his wife as a young girl and can't imagine her as a widow with 4 children of her own. :(

These men died as heroes. but my heart is truly broken for the families that have been left behind.
