I would have loved to talk to the survivors who might share some insight into his last moments. My mother, Ina, brother, Buz and I continued to live in Moab for many years, and even after 50 years the memory of that horrible day still takes my breath away. My dad is buried in Moab and right next to him is one of the other survivors who had no family and so no headstone was put up.
The owners and the mine inspectors who failed these men should be ashamed even now, 50 years later.
