CANFIELD, OH - Remembering the Fleming family.

Services were held in Canfield, Ohio Sunday to remember six people who went missing in a plane late last month over Lake Erie.

Two of whom were graduates of Boardman High School.

Boardman alumni had a memorial for the family, tying blue ribbons on trees outside the high school.

A few had a moment of silence.

John and Sue Fleming graduated from Boardman in nineteen-eighty-nine and were high school sweethearts.

They were onboard the plane with their two sons, a neighbor, and his daughter.

Fleming was taking his family and friends to a Cleveland Cavaliers game.

Among those tying ribbons Sunday were two women who graduated with John and Sue.

"Anytime we can remember true, dedicated Spartans who gave their time to the school and the community, and were involved, and they touched so many others lives, I think it's very important that the alumni association reaches out to those folks and these families at these times," says Cheryl Tarantino, President of the Boardman High School Alumni.

The city of Cleveland tweeted the next scheduled search and recovery operations would be today (Mon) if the weather allows for it.
