ALISO VIEJO, CALIFORNIA -- Ulrick and Dorothy Foth, victims in the crash
of EgyptAir Flight 990 that crashed off Nantucket Island two weeks ago,
were eulogized Saturday at a memorial service held at an LDS Chapel in
Aliso Viejo. While investigators have still not determined the exact
cause of the crash, memorial services for four of ten Orange County,
California victims were held Saturday.
Nearly 500 friends and relatives attended the service, watching a slide
show of the couple's life together and reviewing their adventures, the
weddings of thier children, the family holidays and the births of five
grandchildren. "Mom would say it's OK to cry a little bit, but you have
to smile a lot," son Gary Foth told the congregation. "We are here to
celebrate the lives of our parents. The vision I have of them, even as
the plane is having trouble, is my father holding her hand, comforting
her, telling her that everything will be all right."
The Foths were on the flight to Cairo with Barbara and Art Peever, their
friends for 40 years, as the two couples began a vacation together.
