We never met him face to face. Ours was a telephone relationship. He was always willing to speak with us when we called to invite him to a Focus Group or to ask him silly questions about Technology that we didn't understand. Erwin & I spoke about things other than that. We spoke about the world and the craziness going on in it. We spoke about his family and things going on in his kids lives. He was a very dedicated and committed father, very involved with what his family was involved in. He made sure his wife was taken care of when she needed to be taken care of. We even spoke about his working on such a high floor at the WTC. We've been in communication with his wife since Sept 11. Several Girl Scout Troops (they didn't know him at all) near us have raised money for his family and planted a tree in Erwin's honor....he so loved trees. My heart still aches thinking of the senseless loss of his life as well as all the others. I pray that the Heavens give these people the strength to carry on in their lives. The emptiness, I imagine, will never go away. I never met him and I have this feeling of emptiness. I can't even begin to imagine what his family is feeling. I pray for them and others as well, a peaceful, safe and good New Year. We will keep them always in our thoughts and prayers.
