    My first cousin lost his wife and daughter in this accident. I do believe that prayer is powerful, so those among you who are prayers, I would appreciate prayers for the family. This family has been hard hit in the past few years.

The elder O'Keefe is currently chief executive of the U.S. division of European defense contractor EADS North America.
    Tindall leaves behind a husband, Virgil Peachey, and a son, Connor Tindall.

    "Our hearts are with Dana's family," said GCI president and CEO Ron Duncan in a statement on the site. "Dana and her daughter Corey were a big part of our GCI family and we are devastated by the news of their passing."
    A 24-year GCI veteran, Tindall had served in her current role since mid-1993. Previously, she served as GCI's vice president of regulatory affairs.
    Tindall has served as an adjunct professor of regulatory economics at Alaska Pacific University. She is a past board member of both the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation and the Alaska Council on Economic Education.
    Tindall earned her bachelor's degree in economics and master's degree in public policy from the University of Michigan.
