OKLAHOMA'S FALLEN WORKERS

These are a few of the men and women that went to work in Alabama and were fatally injured never going home to their families at the end of their shift.

---- Lost love is still love. It takes a different form, that's all. You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it.-Mitch Albom (sent by LeeAnn) To see more about Russell.
