The Farmingdale State students were killed in a small plane crash in Pennsylvania last Wednesday after taking off from an airport in Sterling Township.
Graduating students of Farmingdale State College arrived for commencement on Saturday morning. And just steps away was a congratulatory message, mixed with a message of sadness for the two students who died in a plane crash on Wednesday.
Federal investigators hope to figure out what exactly caused the single-engine aircraft to go down Wednesday night.
Pilot Patrick Sheridan, a 34-year-old from Long Beach, and Casey Falconer, a 19-year old from New Hyde Park, were killed. The lone survivor was 21-year-old Evan Kisseloff, of Oceanside.
