One of the miners who died in the blast was 25-year-old Josh Napper. And today, President Obama read from a letter that Mr. Napper had left for his mother and girlfriend.
P: If anything happens to me, I'll be looking down from heaven at you all. I love you. Take care of my baby. Tell her that Daddy loves her. She's beautiful. She's funny. Just take care of my baby girl.
