I did not know him, but we were neighbors. I never met him, but we went to the same law school. I never spoke with him, but we shared a faith. From what I have heard in the past three months, I would have been better off if I had met him, known him and talked with him.
For some reason, the personal story of what Mr. Zucker and his wife had been through before and September 11th, and what his entire family went through afterward (not being able to sit shiva for their beloved because there was no body), just broke my heart. May his widow and family find peace.
I never met Andrew, and I don't actually live in the United States, but in England. I was in America on September 11 and remember watching the events unfold. One thing I remember in particular was the feature done about Andrew, about how his wife and family were desperately looking for him. It was so heartbreaking, and I just felt like I wanted to do something to help. I prayed and prayed that he would be found, but it was not to be. I thank God for Andrew's life, and my love and sympathy go out to his wife at this time.
