Remembering September 11, 2001: Eric McDowell


By EricMcDowell

My wife, Jennifer, works for a national company and was flying to a convention in Los Angeles on Sept. 11, 2011. Her best friend with the company was on the plane out of Boston that hit one of the towers. Jennifer was going to be on the plane that day, but instead changed to a flight through Atlanta, and of course was grounded in Atlanta. When she landed there and saw everyone surrounding the TVs, she contacted her company and unfortunately later found out that her friend, Jane, was indeed on one of the planes.

Recently we visited Jane’s mother and introduced her to Sara Jane, our daughter who was born on June 1, 2011. Jennifer got the news of her pregnancy in early September last year. This past Sunday, Sara Jane got extra hugs and kisses from both of us, and Jane will always be a part of her, and ­­­always in our hearts.
