FEMALE SPEAKER: So our brother is William Gregory. He flew in March of let's see.


FEMALE SPEAKER: '95. He was on Mission STS 67, and it was a great night launch. It was exciting, and it lit up the whole sky.

FEMALE SPEAKER: And we were both pregnant. We were ready to deliver, and we went. It looked like the launch was not going to happen because it had been raining and storming all day, and really, literally 60 seconds before they did the countdown, the heavens opened up, the sky opened up, and they started from 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, and it was like just then did we realize that he was sitting on top of a rocket and ready to go up into space, and he was the pilot.

Our grandmother who is 95 was there. Our parents were there, and boom, it lit up the entire sky. It was a remarkable experience.
