In Memoriam:

To the crew who dedicated their lives to save lives, you will not be forgotten. May you rest in eternal peace.  As a fellow EMT your dedication will be missed by those you left behind and to your families I personally want to say THANK YOU for sharing these people with us. It truly was a honor to have known that you saved countless lives in the Northern Iowa and Southern Minnesota area. I personally want say AMEN to our Heros. May these families find peace and comfort through the support of all of us who care! My hat off to you.

Although I didn't know any of the flight crew members personally, I know they made a difference in many people's lives while risking their own. My thoughts and prayers are with Russell, Shelly, Gene, their families and friends,  Mercy Medical Center, and the Mercy Med-Air Flight Team.
