I got to answer a comment someone mention about me. I work in the industry. I happen to have worked with both people involve multiple times. So i would thank the person who made those comments to keep them to yourself. To date i had not heard that the wreckage or bodies were found. I wanted to make sure that it was true and not rumors that were started. So next time think before you post comments like that. Thanks twinstar_ca. I was just trying to get the facts straight. There is no hug for warner from me!!!
