LONE GROVE — The roll call of tornado fatalities is short — eight souls now forever bonded by a moment in time. One by one their names were released to The Oklahoman on Thursday through various sources until the portrait was complete. Together, they are collection of Oklahomans who will be remembered for their wit, wisdom, kindness and love. The eight victims are: Trevor William Kelii Morgan, 30, Lone Grove Tim Nevill, 36, Lone Grove Gary Boyd, Jr., 39, Jones William Vincent Fambrough, 48, Lone Grove Susan Gail Fambrough, 54, Lone Grove Molly Hutchinson, 53, Lone Grove Donna Lee McGarvey, 54, Lone Grove William Wheat, 78, Lone Grove “This hasn't sunk in yet,” said Bobby Richardson, Hutchinson's mother. “I imagine it won't until her service Saturday.” Richardson, 70, viewed her daughter's remains at the Craddock Funeral Home in Ardmore on Thursday. Joyous visions of her beloved daughter have flashed through her mind ever since she received the news Tuesday night. “I see our little girl a lot,” Richardson said. “She always had a smile. You know she was in a bad car wreck over a year ago, and was in a lot of pain. But she never stopped smiling. Everybody loved her.” In the Bar K Trailer Park, Danna McCord remembered her mother and stepfather — Gail and Vince Fambrough — while trying to salvage what items she could from the scattered wreckage of their trailer home. Only a mangled, iron frame remained. At one point McCord found the jacket of her 13-year-old sister, Kaylee, the trailer home's lone survivor. It was a small but symbolic victory in days filled mostly with sorrow. “I'm trying to hold up, but it's been tough,” McCord said. “I have my moments.” The sadness is shared. Stephen McCord, Danna's husband, found her mother's remains in the storm's aftermath. “He won't tell me anything else,” Danna McCord said. “He's trying to protect me. They wouldn't even let me see her remains at the funeral home. So it's been tough.” Surviving family members are instead remembering the way their loved ones were. Melva Morgan, 83, of Healdton only has to go back to Tuesday night to know what kind of man her grandson, Trevor Morgan, was on earth. One of the last things Trevor Morgan did before the tornado hit was call his grandmother. He was concerned about her safety. “The night of the storm, he wanted to know if my cellar door was open,” Melva Morgan said. “He was going to come and open it for me. And I told him, 'No, my cellar door was open.' ... So he didn't come over here. And that's the last time I talked to him. He was always concerned about others. Always. ... We sure are going to miss him.” Mark Nevill offered simple, yet profound words about his younger brother, Tim. “He was a good father and a hard worker,” said Nevill, 39, of San Jose, Calif. “He loved to work with his hands and had a dream of farming the family's land.” Contributing: Staff Writer Nolan Clay
