Reason #27 Anthony "Andy" Marks - 15
And then there was one......
Quinton...Darin...Juan....this was our guy. Our main man...ace in the hole...Andy Marks. Still so hard to believe he is gone. Let me share a story that some may know, but many probably do not: Andy, like myself, was not a member, nor a regular of the First Assembly of God church. A couple of weeks prior to the trip, Andy made the decision that he wanted to get baptized and give his life to Christ...and he chose to do it at First Assembly. So on Mother's Day, Sun May 8, 1988 (one week before the trip), as a gift to his mother, Karen Claybrook (God rest her soul), Andy decided this was the day he would get baptized. To my knowledge, it was this day that he found out about the upcoming trip to King's Island. So to put this in perspective...on Sunday, Andy gave his life to his Saviour...and on the following Saturday, he went to meet his Saviour. Think about that. Andy was a character and had a fun-loving spirit about him. The world lost a good one in Andy Marks. I could tell stories for days about this guy, but for sake of time and to give others an opportunity to share...I will stop there. Andy...bro...listen to me: you have not left me one time in 25 years. You have walked alongside me through the good days and through the bad...and Lord knows there have been some bad. But now, it is my turn...it is our turn to return the favor to you, and to the 26 others that left us on 5/14/88. I promise you that I will not stop until, until this work is done...until your voice is heard loud and clear through the message of IMPACT: After the Crash. You are my strength brother...I got you. RIP Homie. - HD #IMPACT #27REASONS
Reason #26 Patricia Susan Nunnallee - 10
Down to our final two......
First off, Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mothers out there, especially the Mothers who were so tragically affected on 5/14/88. Today is a day to simply say 'thank you' and we empathize with you. But a very special 'Happy Mother's Day' goes out to Mrs. Karolyn Nunnallee, as today, we remember her wonderful Patty. I did not know little Miss Patty, but from what I have learned about her throughout the process of making this film, there is no doubt in my mind she was special. I have always admired Karolyn (and her husband) for their courage in the wake of this tragedy. In addition, Karolyn has taken one of the most unthinkable situations that a parent could endure...especially a mother...and utilized it as a vehicle to be heard and to create change. And for that...I commend you; it is obvious where Patty got her determination. Patty...we love you. You were well beyond your years when you said it, yet you said it best: 'life is about choice not chance.' Through our efforts, along with the support of many, those words will eternally resonate with the many who view this film. Let this film be your voice. RIP. - HD #IMPACT #27REASONS #CHOICENOTCHANCE
Reason #25 Robin J. Williams - 10
And then there were three......
We have reached our final three loved ones to remember, as we approach 5/14/13. Today, we remember Ms. Robin Williams. I believe most of us have come to know and love the Williams family throughout the events of the crash over the last 25 years. It is very difficult to find the words to express to Robin's father...my friend...Mr. Lee Williams, who has endured something that very few could ever fathom. So I will just say to Mr. Williams...we love you, as we honor and remember your precious Robin. Robin...you are one of the #reasons...the many reasons I remain inspired daily, to tell our story. We love you and we miss you. RIP. - HD
Tomorrow marks the 28th anniversary of the bus crash. In light of the many requests to see the documentary, and to further honor the victims and survivors of the crash, we thought we would do something special:
Tomorrow, Saturday May, 14 between the hours of 10am and 10:55pm (the approximate timeframe that the passengers left for Kings Island, and the approximate time the crash occurred) we will be offering the film for FREE on Vimeo on Demand.
Anytime between 10a - 10:55...pm tomorrow, go to the provided link, and use the promo code: MADD.
Reason #24 Lori Kathleen Holzer - 11
Today we remember yet another precious young soul lost on 5/14/88...Lori Holzer. The Holzer family is one that ...I did not have the opportunity of knowing prior to that day. The amount of support and participation expressed, in remembering and commemorating our loved ones in this forum has been amazing. I know they are all feeling our love, as they smile upon us. To the Holzer family...our hearts go out to you on this day. Everyone, please share some stories and memories of Ms. Lori Holzer. Lori...we love you and we miss you. RIP. - HD
Reason #23 Crystal Uhey - 11
It has been brought to my attention that Crystal may have been older than 11, but the State records (which I am referen...cing) have her as being 11, so I apologize if this is incorrect. I did not know the Uhey family prior to 5/14/88, but today my heart goes out to them for there unspeakable loss in young Crystal. Like my parents, the Uhey's did not have one, but two loved ones on the bus that day, with Crystal's older sister Pam's life being spared. I cannot imagine the pain that Pam has experienced over the years, as my sister and I both survived. Today, we remember precious little Crystal, and her family. Crystal...your loss will be forever felt, and your memory never forgotten. RIP.

Reason #22 Julie A. Earnest - 12
As difficult as it is to relive some of these deeply rooted memories of pain and suffering...it is equally as healin...g to remember all of the wonderful things that each and every one of these precious souls brought to our lives. It warms my heart to read comments from these loved ones' close friends, but most importantly, to read comments from their family members, who I am certain, can never fully heal from such a tremendous loss. Let us take today to remember young Julie, and some of the wonderful things that she brought to your lives. Julie...I have been further reminded over that last 22 days...exactly why we made this film...and exactly why it is so important to tell your stories. Today...is an extension of that reminder. We miss you. RIP. - HD #IMPACT #27REASONS
Reason #21 Dwailla Dawn Fischel - 12
Alas, we reach the final week of our #27REASONS commemoration, as we approach 5/14/13...25 years...so difficult ...to fathom. I personally did not know Dwailla and the Fischel family, but we are undoubtedly connected. Let us take time today to reflect, share some memories, and show our love and support for the Fischel family, as we recognize Ms. Dwailla. Dwailla...just know that your loss of life on this Earth will never be in vain as we seek to leave a lasting impact on many lives...through your memory. You will forever hold a place in our hearts. RIP. - HD
Reason #20 Sandy Brewer - 12
As we approach the final week leading up to the 25th anniversary, my heart grows bigger each day, as I am now approachin...g the younger, precious lives that we lost that day. I did not know the Brewer family, but my heart goes out to them today, as we remember their beloved Sandy. Please share some memories and words of encouragement for the Brewer family on this day. Sandy...12 years was way too few. Although I am certain your family would still love to hug you each and every day, my hope is that they find solace in knowing that you are in a much 'better' place. May this film shine a ray of light upon your soul and have a lasting impact, on many lives. RIP. - HD #IMPACT #27REASONS
Reason #19 Denise E. Voglund - 13
My heart goes out to Dave, Diane, Megan and the rest of the Voglund family on your unimaginable loss 25 years ago. ... Let this be a day...leading up to the day...that we all remember Denise, and the tremendous impact she had on our lives. Denise...we love you and we miss you. RIP. - HD #IMPACT #27REASONS
