In Memory of Margaret Ruth Echtermann

Margaret Ruth Echtermann was 33 years old and from Barneveld, New York. (Born: Flemington, New Jersey). Margaret worked as a leasing representative for Regus on the 93rd floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

Margaret liked to spend summer weekends in a rented house in the Hamptons where according to her sister Heidi, she had fallen in love. Also, she was looking forward to moving to Boston where her company was about to transfer her.

On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Margaret spoke to her sister after the first plane hit the North Tower and told her she was fine, then called her parents in Barneveld, a small town north of Utica, and told them the same. Then she called a friend, who recognized Margaret's phone number on her caller ID, but heard nothing. That was the moment of impact, her sister thinks.

In Memory of James Patrick Ladley

James Patrick Ladley was 41 years old and from Colts Neck, New Jersey. (Born: Staten Island, New York). James worked for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 104th floor in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

On September 11, 2001, James was talking to his wife on the phone from his office on the 104th floor when terrorists flew a hijacked airplane into the building.

Shortly after that tragic day, James's wife had to try to explain to their two young children, Elizabeth and James, why their father had not come home. She told Elizabeth, who saw the big building burning, and relates big buildings with her father's work, that "the building became too dangerous and that God is a good person and he opened up heaven and welcomed the people in the building to a safe place." James says that "Daddy is working in heaven." They look at pictures and videos when they miss their dad, but Mrs. Ladley, who wants them to remember their loving and fun-loving father, also tries to assure them that "we big people will take care of everything."

In Memory of Catherine Patricia Salter

Catherine Patricia Salter was 49 years old and from New York, NY. Catherine worked as an assistant vice president in the property claims department at Aon Corp on the 102 floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

On September 11, 2001, Cathy was near her office in the South Tower, when the first plane hit the other tower. Being a VP and in charge of the office, she had evacuated the staff and then called Chicago to tell them that everyone was OK. Next she called her former boss in Cincinnati to tell him all was OK, and he was shocked that she was not out of the building. Catherine explained that the public address system urged people to remain in their offices, but she had evacuated the staff and was just ready to leave herself. It was then that the phone went dead and Catherine's boss saw the new plume of fire from Catherine's tower.

"I can almost imagine seeing her walk the streets and enjoy being alive there. My entire family life has been changed by that day. I may be past the bitterness of strangers taking her life but I will never be over knowing that they must be stopped. We must never forget 9-11-01 if for no other reason than to make sure that it never happens again.

I miss Cathy so much, I look at her picture and I talk to her and I believe that she knows how I feel.

May the circle be unbroken." Love MOM (Eleanor Salter)
