I was lucky enough to get hold of the Dutch Foreign Affairs representative just after little Ruben - the only survivor - was reunited with his aunt and uncle. So something happy at least in the swamp of misery surrounding 103 tragic deaths.

Katherine Tillet was in my grade at school and I remember her as being a quiet, almost nerdy girl who went on to make a good career for herself. Her mom goes to my mom's church. How ridiculous that the plane flew all the way to Libya just to crash in front of the runway.
