(AP) U.S. Sen. John Cornyn says tragedies like the fertilizer plant explosion that killed at least 14 remind him of the fierce loyalty Texans have for each other.


Cornyn spoke on behalf of Texas' congressional delegation Thursday at a memorial service for the first responders who died in last week's explosion at West Fertilizer. He introduced President Barack Obama, who attended the service along with first lady Michelle Obama.


Cornyn called on those watching to "never forget the courage and the resolve" of the people of West. He says one resident of West told him after the blast that being from Texas is not just about a home state, but an extended family.


Ten first responders and two people who helped fight the initial fire were honored at the service.
