Each year I take great pride in listing out the names of those we lost on April, 27, 2011 on Twitter and Facebook. It is a labor of love and dedication that has increasingly become harder and harder to do due to changing policies at social media companies. Last year we exceeded the rate limit on Twitter and our account was locked. This year I started early and found a partner that developed an app that would help automate the posting on Facebook but every time we worked to get the app approved, Facebook denied it. So this year will be the start of a new tradition. We will post the names on this dedicated forum and encourage families and friends to share their comments here. We will continue to develop this thread into a proper online memorial over the next year and offer something to families that never goes away.

To those who lost loved ones, we will all remember that tragic day and the families and friends whose lives were changed. We can't bring them back but we are happy to ensure that they are never forgotten.

“There are special people in our lives who never leave us …. even after they are gone.” – D. Morgan

So many children died, it's very emotional to see that. The youngest I saw were two three year olds, that passed, hearts will always go out to the families who lost their loved ones.

I grew up with Jennifer Hallmark as she lived next door to my grandmother's house and I graduated with her brother. It was so distressing to hear their story and understand that multiple generations were lost in the blink of an eye. Her surviving daughter worked with her grief counselor to create a book about her experience.

Carol McElyea's age is incorrect. Per the link under her name, She was 47, not 67. Our families were friends.

I wonder why Garrett Jones of Concord isn't included in most lists I've seen? His wife died that day, but he didn't pass away until a few months later.

I graduated HS with one of his brothers, and was friends with his other brother who passed away from cancer while a senior in HS. Lot of tragedy befell that family in a short amount of time. I saw Kevin (surviving brother) and Garrett at the funeral home in Hueytown just two months before the tornado (viewing for one of their grandparents was at the same time as my grandmother's).

Garrett's obituary

Equally as sad, I went to church with Carrie Grier and her brother Curt. Her newborn son is now nine years old -- right at a year older than my daughter. :( Carrie's obituary

Carrie was such a sweet girl. She died a few houses down from a home I used to play in all the time as a child in Pleasant Grove -- two streets over from the home I grew up in and lived in when my father died in 1991.

Honestly, I try not to think about this stuff as it makes me so incredibly sad. Neither Carrie nor Garrett deserved to lose their lives that day.

I guess I'm also grateful that more people I knew in Pleasant Grove and Concord did survive that day -- although, tragically, the scourge of opioids took one one of those survivors just a few years later. My childhood friend and neighbor who lived across the street. RIP, CF. I'll never forget how you always took up for me as kid.

We stopped at an Exxon station in Russellville for gas this morning, and I saw this memorial to the residents of Franklin County that passed away on April 27th. As many times as we’ve driven through here, we’ve never stopped here so it was my first time seeing it.

I had the privilege several years ago of meeting Loryn Brown's mother. We have remained good friends ever since. I met her at one of Kim Cross's book signings for What Stands In A Storm

Still remember watching Fox 6 and seeing this when I was in 6th grade as my dad was at work in hueytown. Ridiculous day still gives me chills thinking about it.
