Flight 3407 Widow: Pray for Flight 370 Families
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) As the mystery continues over flight 370, a widow of Flight 3407 calls on people to pray for the families of those on board as she wonders what they are going through.
Robin Tolsma lost her husband Darren in the crash of Flight 3407 in 2009. "They need to be told the truth," says Tolsma, who recalls her NTSB briefing after the crash that killed 50 people. "Whether it's good or bad, we just wanted to know the truth, and let's face it the news was just bad. So not knowing must hurt and with each passing day they lose hope," believes Tolsma. She says there false hope is not there any more. "That's starting to fade more and more, and the reality will soon set in with the families."
Tolsma is urging folks to pray for the victims' families. "It's gotta be incredible. Eating is hard, sleeping is hard, thinking of anything other than your loved one is hard," says Tolsma.
