Oct. 2, 1970. A tragic plane crash. Devastating sorrow. Faith, hope and love triumph over heartbreak and loss in a father's musical gift to his son. When the plane carrying Ronnie Johnson and other members of the WSU football team crashed, Howard hoped to have the ring Ronnie always wore to remember him by. Thirteen years later, the ring was miraculously found and returned to Ronnie's parents. Based on Howard's poetry, which helped to console him in his grief. Rated G.
