HUNTINGTON, Utah -- When Utah families gather this week to give thanks for what they have, some may also reflect on what they lost.

For widows of Utah's trapped miners, the pain is still raw.

Bessie Allred, who can only gaze at the mountains that hold Kerry, her 58-year-old husband, says nobody knows what's deep in her heart.

Huntington Mayor Hilary Gordon says even though it's been more than three months since the incident at the Crandall Canyon mine, the pain remains especially sharp because the bodies may never be recovered.

Gordon says the town's 2,000 residents are pulling together this holiday season.
