I Will Remember You....................

In Memoriam

Tim Samaras, Paul Samaras and Carl Young
Our Friends, Tim Samaras, Paul Samaras, and Carl Young
All three of these fine men died on May 31, 2013 doing what they loved, chasing tornadoes, and placing specially equipped electronic devices known as probes in the path of extreme tornadoes to obtain scientific readings on the workings of a tornado, in order to increase the warning times ahead of the tornadoes.  Most of you probably know Tim and his crew from the Discovery Channel's program “Storm Chasers”.  Tim and his crew, along with all the other storm chasers are like family to many here in Oklahoma. 
Oklahoma suffered a great loss. May Tim, Paul, and Carl rest in peace.

Memorial services were held today in Littleton, Colorado for Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras and his partner Carl Young.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 so we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is  preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,  as we  look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

  3. Thank you for this post. They were my favorite storm chasers and what makes their deaths so much more tragic is that they were probably some of the just shows how dangerous it is.

    May they rest in peace...watching those storms from above now.
