Origins: Flight attendant Karen Perry of Gold Canyon, Arizona, a single mother, lost her three young children in a small airplane crash which also killed her ex-husband on the day before Thanksgiving 2011:
Friends are wrapping their arms around Karen Perry after the Gold Canyon, Ariz., single mother had to face the loss of her three young children and ex-husband.
Perry, who was a pilot and currently works as a flight attendant with Delta Airlines, was described as a doting and selfless mother to her three children, Morgan, 9;Logan, 8; and Luke, 6.
The [Thanksgiving-eve] flight between Falcon Field in Mesa, Ariz., and Safford, Ariz., seemed to be a common one for the three kids.
The twin-engine plane slammed into the Superstition Mountains at 200 mph shortly after takeoff, creating a fireball that was captured on video.
Pilot Russell Hardy, 31, and mechanic Joseph Hardwick, 22, who was engaged to be married on Dec. 16, were also on board.
