Family remembers loved ones lost in tornadoes

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TORNADO SURVIVOR, AMY TIPPIN, SAYING: "We heard it and I said here it comes boys.. didn't I, I said here it comes. And we just held each other tighter and I told them I loved them. And then it was like it was over like that." Amy Tippin and her family have lost everything after deadly tornadoes that killed at least six people tore through central Illinois. Besides their mobile home, the most devastating loss, was that of their family members. Tippin's grandmother who lived next door died from her wounds after being pinned under a pile of rubble. Tippin's great uncle was also killed. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LINDA ANGE, DAUGHTER OF FRANCES HOY, SAYING: "We were planning on a Thanksgiving down here. Amy bought a turkey and Uncle Joe was going to fry it. So we were all looking forward to that (crying) but we don't know what we're going to do now." The unusual late-season storms moved dangerously fast, tracking east at 60 m
