MARK PROCT podcast excerpt: "It was hard to believe what happened to Stevie the night before and we were not sure what we we were going to see (at the crash site). The FAA was already onsite and they were very nice to Jimmie and let us go up the hill to the site. The amazing part of this was that Jimmie was looking for Stevie's cross. We were there for a while and couldn't find it. We went to leave and a guy ran up to the car we were in. In this field he had found the cross and handed it to Jimmie. It was amazing."
