The mother of two girls who died in a plane crash has been speaking out, just over a year after the tragic accident in Arizona.

Cynthia Larmore told Fox that she has been touched by the outpouring of love from the community and the help of strangers since the fateful day her daughters, 12 and 14, boarded a small plane with their father and stepmother on Jan. 2, 2017.

They were going on a family ski trip, but they never arrived. The weather was closing in, and the plane headed into snow and ended up flying into the tree-lined cliffs and slopes of the towering Mogollon Rim.

Larmore said that the girls’ father, who was flying the plane, should never have taken off, and should have turned around when the weather began to change.

She described the moments that she began to realize something was wrong, almost instinctively knowing that her worst fears had come true.

Larmore said she reached out to another mother, whose children had also died in a plane crash, for support and wisdom.
