It was 10 years ago today that an airplane chartered by the Oklahoma State University athletic department crashed in Colorado, on the way back from a men's basketball game. All 10 on board the aircraft were killed.
My best friend from college, Kendall Durfey, was one of them. Kendall and I were undergrads at Oral Roberts University; Kendall went on to OSU, earned his master's, and went to work for the university, producing instructional videos and serving as an engineer for the radio broadcasts of OSU sporting events.
Please keep the Durfey family, and the families of all 10 who were killed, in your prayers today.
Here is more information about the crash, and here are some parody radio commercials Kendall and I produced together when we were at ORU.
