Writing Never Mumbles

A Family Visit Turns Into a Tragedy

When Rikki Menora, 16; Rachel Menora, 14; and Sara Klein, 17, went to visit their grandparents in Chicago, IL, their parents never thought that they would never see them again. A plane piloted by their grandfather, Moshe Menora;73, and his four grandchildren visiting from Israel, crashed in Michigan’s upper peninsula on Wednesday, July 14, around 10:15am.

The mother of three was in Italy with one of their siblings while their father was in Michigan. They flew to the crash immediately as any grief-stricken parent would and learned that their youngest child, Nathaniel Joseph “Yossi” Menorah survived by being thrown out of the plane as his siblings, cousin, and grandfather died instantly. He is currently in critical condition with burns that cover fifty percent of his body.The grandfather,

Moshe Menora had 30 years of experience as a pilot, and had just celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary with his wife, Sema Menora last March.

My condolences go out to the parents, grandmother, and siblings. May you never have to go through another tragedy again…

Never take the ones you love for granted.
