Buffalo (WKBW) Emotions ran high inside Christ the King Chapel at Canisius College Friday night, as a community remembered a snowy February night two years ago Saturday. The night when Continental Flight 3407 crashed in Clarence Center.

John Kausner lost his daughter in the plane crash. "It's wonderful that someone in the community said 'we're going to do something to remember those folks. It's not just us remembering, it’s the community remembering," Kausner said Monday.

Poems and letters were read through teary eyes. Also, a special musical composition was played called "Toward the Light," as a tribute to those who lost their lives in the crash of 3407.

And though it has been two years, those who lost loved ones when the plane went down, said it seems as though time has stood still.

"It seems like yesterday. I can't believe it's been two years since I lost my girl," Kausner said.

Families of Flight 3407 have planned private memorial events on Saturday, the two year anniversary of the crash.
