News as of 11/25/01: You may have noticed the pictures on this page during the past month or so. The lady on the left is my cousin, Maria or Maritess. The lady on the right, Judy, is a friend. Both lost their lives during the World Trade Center attacks on 9-11-01. Judy was dropped off at 8:30am in front of the building and it usually takes 15 minutes to take an elevator from the main floor all the way to the top, which is the 110th floor. We are assuming (we will never know what exactly happened) that she was on the elevator near her floor (104th, North Tower or Tower 1) when the plane struck. Maria was on the 103rd floor of the North Tower when the plane struck. She was able to phone call from her office to her father at home in Parsippany, New Jersey. She said that a plane struck the building and that she didn't know what to do. Her father said to evacuate right away and she replied "Okay, Okay! I gotta go! I gotta go!" Those were the very last words he would hear from her......
Maria was suppose to get married on May 11th of 2002.
I ask you to please do a little prayer for both of these wonderful ladies. Thank You and God Bless America.
