crashed last night in Buffalo, NY, killing all 49 people on board and one on the ground. While details are still emerging, the following part of the news article grabbed my attention:
According to CNN affiliate WGRZ-TV in Buffalo, one of the crash victims, Beverly Eckert, was the widow of 9/11 terror attack victim Sean Rooney, a Buffalo native. Eckert was traveling to Buffalo for a weekend celebration of what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday.
She also had planned to take part in presentation of a scholarship award at Canisius High School that she established in honor of her late husband, the Buffalo News newspaper reported.
How absolutely dreadful. My heart goes out to the families of all those who lost their lives in this terrible accident.
