AIR CRASH VICTIM'S DAUGHTER CREATES MEDAL FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDERS

"The daughter of a victim in the crash of Comair Flight 5191 said
she hopes commemorative coins she designed will honor emergency
responders and “the love and support the whole community has shown.”

"Bronze coins about the size of a quarter, inscribed “With Gratitude,”
are expected to be delivered soon to 550 public safety officers,
coroner’s officials and others who responded to the crash site.

"The coin was conceived and designed by Amy Turner, 23. Her father
was Larry Turner, dean of the University of Kentucky’s College of
Agriculture, who perished in the crash.

"The Comair jet crashed while attempting to take off from Blue
Grass Airport the morning of Aug. 27, 2006. Of the 50 people on
board, 49 were killed.

"Amy Turner sketched the designs by hand. Drawing is something
she used to with her father, she said. About 600 coins with the
word “Remembering” were distributed on Monday to victims’ family
members.

"Turner intends to keep hers in her billfold. “I think it’s a
pretty sweet reminder of the good that’s come from this,”
she said."
