Plane crash twins don't know mother and father are dead
Family members are waiting for advice from a counselor and for other relatives to arrive in Riverhead before breaking the terrible news to Amanda and Bobby Gregory.
"Once everybody gets together, we'll sit and figure out how to tell them," said Todd Gregory, 38, of Coram, L.I., who is caring for the blond-haired tykes.
"They don't know. They think they're camping at Uncle Todd's."
The twins' parents, Robert and Donna Gregory, were killed Tuesday when a small plane from the charity Angel Flight crashed outside Boston while taking them to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The 43-year-old husband, who had battled leukemia for four years and was in remission after a stem-cell transplant, was scheduled for his semiannual checkup, said Todd Gregory, his cousin.
"He beat the leukemia and was on his way up," he said.
"He went through a lot of tough fighting and having this happen to him, it's like, why? It's really not fair."
