You are always in my thoughts every day. I miss you all more than a simple typed sentence can express. Heaven has THE best flight crew, and I miss them everyday.

Bill, you brought so much joy to our lives in the 31 years you were with us. I love you dearly, I always will. You were so dedicated to your profession and I am so proud to call you son. I miss you so much, so saved so many lives, it is so tragic that you gave yours in the line of duty.

-  Arlette B. Mann MOTHER of William J. Mann, Jr.

William J. Mann, Jr. - Flight Nurse,

I flew with Bill for the first and only time two weeks prior to the accident. Even in that short amount of time I saw how dedicated, caring and wonderful he was. Despite our brief encounter, I will always remember him for the hero that he is.
