Sad, at the end of the day it is someone's child, someone's father, someone's husband. Someone who won't be sharing a family meal anymore.

Its sad to read of this story and sending my condolences to the family of the crew. These days you can never know of what was the cause. Hope the black box will shed more light and I pray to God Almighty that its not what I suspect.
