Shane Sanders, I am truly sorry for your loss, I got engaged on Sept. 10, 2001 instead of celebrating we sat and channel hopping between CBC, CNN and Fox as planes crashed into and people jumped off the twin towers. Death is a fact of life, despite all our progress no one lives forever ... I should know I suddenly lost both my parents before I was 26 yrs old.
Unfortunately your post would be more authoritative were it not for the 43 others all of whom claim to be surviving 'grieving family (blood relations) of flight 11's pilots :- Thomas 'Tom' McGuinness, 42, Portsmouth, N.H., First Officer
John Ogonowski, 52, Dracut, Mass., Captain
Perhaps you really meant the Cabin crew
Barbara Arestegui, 38, Marstons Mills, Mass., flight attendant
Jeffrey Collman, 41, Novato, Calif., flight attendant
Sara Low, 28, Batesville, Ark., flight attendant
Karen Martin, 40, Danvers, Mass., flight attendant
Kathleen Nicosia, flight attendant
Betty Ong, 45, Andover, Mass., flight attendant
Jean Roger, 24, Longmeadow, Mass., flight attendant
Dianne Snyder, 42, Westport, Mass., flight attendant
Madeline Sweeney, 35, Aco-cton, Mass., flight attendant
Assuming your dad was Tom McGuinness Co-Pilot which are you Jennifer 16, or Tommy 14, (Syracuse Post Standard, Dec 1st 2008) because John Ogonowski, Captain had all girls, Laura, 16; Caroline, 14; and Mary, 11 (The 2996 Project: Remembering Capt. John Ogonowski)... So you're really Tommy McGuinness Jnr, can you explain why you didn't use your real name on this forum? Ironically there is a NJ student(Googlemyspace)by the very same name you posted under!!

come home wrapped in the flag they love, by patriots - both deserve to be recognised for what they are.
