As they were talking, they heard screams outside from the street from people who saw the "Slocum" burning up. Because her friend missed the trip, she and her family were not among the dead.

From memory, missing, never found, but I will need to check.

So many stories like your grandmother's I had a similar one myself (that I'd rather not post about here) that is the only reason I'm alive today.
