I reported on more aspects of the Mt. Hood crash today (7/08/07).

It got tougher today because I met, at least over the phone, the father of Tyler Williams.

He sounds like a proud, loving father who misses his son with every ounce of his soul.

I'll never forget some of his comments---I wrote a bunch of them up for a web story.

He moved me to tears several times including when he said "God I sure do miss him. And I've only begun to miss him."

I think he is also moved by the many comments readers have posted here. Gary Williams posted one himself this morning on the blog from Saturday.

I'm sure the families of everyone involved feel and appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers.
