MURRAY, Ky. (AP) – Details about the fathers and mothers, friends, siblings and children who died during a tornado outbreak that ripped through the Midwest and South are still coming into focus nearly a week after the onslaught.

Lannis Joe Ward was a father and boyfriend who worked at a candle factory that was destroyed in Kentucky.

A mortuary is preparing for the funerals of two sisters who worked there.

At least 89 people have been confirmed dead across multiple states after more than 40 tornadoes pummeled a wide area, and entire communities are grieving for the lost.
