    After this long I would never go back down myself. No way. Never. So glad for them and the families.

    my dad was a coal miner and I remember a 'slate fall' in 1955, oh it was scarey. He was injured but survived to be 85 years old. May these men have the same or better life. God be praised!

    blessings,
    Ruth

    Amazing that they all survived so long under such onerous circumstances.
