Ah, yes...I didn't recall Gallipolis, but "the Silver Bridge" does ring a bell. After all - it was 40 years ago, and we've all been through a lot since then.

My memory of the event is fuzzy. I was very young. My mother paced the floor a lot. No cell phones then. It took several hours before my father was able to call. He got home from work about four hours late.

I understand the pacing, no cell phone thing. But four hours isn't all that bad. When I was working in northern Los Angeles County, and still living in the southern part of the county, I can remember being on my way home from a long graveyard shift, and getting home over SIX hours late, thanks to one crash...
