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.
