Buddy Holly's wife María Elena was two weeks pregnant when he tragically died in the plane accident in 1959 at age 22, and since that fatal day, she blamed herself for his passing.
Elena Holly found out about the death news from the TV reports. She didn't feel very well that fateful day and hence, didn't join him in his scheduled tour. She felt extremely guilty for his demise as she knew "he would have never gotten into that plane" if she "had gone along."
