deeply saddened

All of Buffalo and Western NY is deeply saddened this morning. Flight 3407 from Newark to Buffalo crashed in Clarence last night. All souls on board we lost including one on the ground. This happened in a residential area and could have been much worse. I'm friends with frequent fliers and they are all fine.

My prayers go out to those who died. Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to the families and friends. WNY may be a region with a city, we certainly have a small town feel. This will affect us all for a very long time. There is a flight path over South Buffalo as well... incoming us it for the southerly approach. I can't help listening more closely now. I grew up right behind a small craft airport(small jets would land there too) and I never even imagined this could happen.
