Victims remembered from Oklahoma tornado

Posted:

MOORE (WKOW) -- The search for victims is over in Oklahoma. Officials say all of the missing have been accounted for.

The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office has released the names of the dead. In all, 24 people were killed.

10 children were among the 24 victims of Monday's natural disaster. The young victims who died are remembered for their athletic skills, enthusiasm and vibrant personalities.

Seven children died while huddling together in Plaza Towers Elementary School. On Wednesday, a wake was held for 8-year-old Kyle Davis. His family says they will remember him as one of the "most fun and loveable kids anyone could ever know."

Kyle was called "the wall" for the way he played soccer. Another victim, 9-year-old Janae Hornsby will be remembered for being the life of the party. Janae's dad says she was full of enthusiasm and joy. He's now trying to heal after the disaster.

"There's no way to explain the anger and the sadness that I had all at one time," said Joshua Hornsby, Janae's father.

The youngest victim in the storm was only four months old. Twenty-nine-year-old Megan Futrell was a mother of two kids. She died with her four-month-old after a roof collapsed on a 7-Eleven. They were sheltered in a walk-in cooler.
