    Clellan Hays remembers his first sermon.
    "Mother's Day. May 13, 1984," Hays said.

    "I'm a biblical preacher," Hays said. "I haven't changed my message and the message hasn't changed. It's still about Jesus Christ."

    Time wasn’t there. That’s how Judy Ballard Platt describes that night 50 years ago when five young men crashed into a tree near her home. 
    “It was just like it was something that wasn’t happening,” she said. “It was like an eternity, like a slow motion-type thing.”
