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.”
