    A book tour in West Virginia last week went well. The first evening, I saw many of the families of the men who died in the No.9. Larry L. Layne, the federal inspector who penned a memo that explains the disaster, was there, too. Families were happy to meet him. He went to high school in the area and knew some of the families.

    Thank you for your email. I am glad the book arrived. I am so sorry for your family’s loss and hope that in some way the book will honor those who died. Bonnie

    Hi Bonnie—I am Diane Megna Kimble- Joe’s sister. Joe was looking ffor Larry Layne. He was under the assumption that he had passed away….Is he the person that wrote the memo???? I have read the book and want to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart….I could hardly read the book for crying and I hope this will bring some justice to our family…but justice won’t come until someone is held accountable for there actions….Thank you again.
