That's the most heart warming anacdote I've heard about that fateful day.

And thank you for sharing the pictures of the things that you cherish.

Ok, so doing the math in my head, the "encounter" with your wife that saved and created your family was around christmas 2000, that's quite a present, and quite a memory.

CL - we got to visit the WTC "ground zero" area when we were in NY earlier this year. I didn't realize we were so close to where you live!

thanks for the well wishes guys.

my building is next to the deuschte bank building that caught on fire recently, which is next to the fire house ironically enough.

there is memorial at the fire house that's both sad and inspiring.

Hey CL,

It must be strange looking out over something like that and realizing how fate can play a part in your life that you can't comprehend.

Have a good one mate.

That was no small miracle.

You were twice blessed.

thanks for the well wishes!!!

not to get to melodramatic but right after the event, there were thousands of people walking around with pictures of their loved ones asking if you have seen them. i will never forget that nor the anguish on their faces. i'm so greatful beyond words i was spared their torment. i still get choked up thinking about that.

many blessings for all of us for the next year.
