The plane went down as it was taking off on Sunday afternoon. High winds at the time of the crash might have played a part in the crash. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Marshall, Texas held a prayer vigil last night to remember the victims.

“It’s hard to take when you lose your whole family. Philip (John’s father) had two children and a granddaughter and they were all in that plane so its, I don’t know how you take that” Charles Reeves, a family member, tells KLTV Television.
