Holton, IN (FOX19) -

Ted and Brenda Tolbert are the couple that were critically injured in the tornado in Holton, Indiana. For over a month she couldn't even talk, that's how bad her voice was, but now she can. Friday, FOX19 talked with Mrs. Tolbert.

"I was blessed and you wonder why you were saved and somebody else had to go. You do wonder why," she said.

The Tolberts' next door neighbor, Ron Pickett, was killed in the EF-4 tornado on March 2nd

Mrs. Tolbert does not remember much of that horrific day.

"I've gone over this in my head I don't know how many times and I don't really remember this whole thing except that I went in to tell my husband about this tornado coming and it hit while I was telling him".

Both Brenda and Ted are expected to eventually make a full recovery.
