I learned about Annie last year,
right after September 11th. I had heard that Cantor Fitzgerald had been
one of the hardest hit companies in the WTC and followed the news closely.
I read about Annie in the NY Times and continue to feel such immense
sorrow for what her family is going through.
I have a daughter- she's 10 years
old. Janette, please know that although we have never met, I have thought
about you every time someone mentions September 11th. I've cried for
your loss and have given my little girl many extra hugs because I have
a feeling you would want me to.
Your daughter was an incredible
person- that has become obvious to me by reading the tributes from her
friends and family. Surely, one of the reasons why she made such an
impact was because she had you as her mom.
I am a single parent- it's a challenge
sometimes to come up with enough energy to make it through my day.You
have inspired me to be more patient, more loving and never to leave
the house without telling my kids how much they mean to me.
I am sure this will not ease your
pain but I wanted to let you know that Annie- and you- have made a big
difference in my life.
