Buses available to take central Oklahoma storm victims to memorial service in Moore - Article Photos 1/51

Jill Tompkins, 28, stands in the rubble of her home at 1001 SW 15, holding a picture of her with her dad, Larry Tompkins, when she was a young softball player for the Washington Wild Things. A volunteer from Moore First Baptist Church had just handed her these photos after he recovered them from the debris. Tompkins thanked him repeatedly and smiled big, explaining to him why these pictures are of such value to her. Her dad, who was her softball coach from age five through high school, died in March. She said her dad "had me out there practicing every day." She didn't like it too much then, but now says she is very thankful. While at Washington High School, her teams won four state softball championships. She found three of her four state rings in the storm's aftermath. She said she is amazed she escaped unhurt and is "so thankful" to have survived the strong tornado. Volunteers from various parts of the country joined Oklahomans in assisting residents on Saturday, May 25, 2013, doing whatever was needed to remove debris and salvage items from this neighborhood east of Santa Fe, north of SW 19 Street. An EF5 tornado leveled many neighborhoods in Moore and southwest Oklahoma City last Monday. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman.
