      with you a lifetime and that was one that will always have special meaning for me.

      My wife and I, and two of our children, survived a tornado in the 1970's. It was terrifying, and it was only an F2. I can't imagine surviving something like the tornado that hit my grandparent's home.

      I once had lunch with George Jone's family. His niece told me that she was living in a trailer house when her first child was born. A tornado struck the house, ripped off the roof, and sucked the baby out of her arms. They found it a mile from the home. It was a very tragic story.
