A catastrophic crash in Buffalo last night, killing all on board, including a 9/11 widow:
According to CNN affiliate WGRZ-TV in Buffalo, one of the crash victims, Beverly Eckert, was the widow of 9/11 terror attack victim Sean Rooney, a Buffalo native. Eckert was traveling to Buffalo for a weekend celebration of what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday.
She also had planned to take part in presentation of a scholarship award at Canisius High School that she established in honor of her late husband, the Buffalo News newspaper reported.
Such a shame. I know several people who went to Canisius College, and I had a roommate from Buffalo. The place, while technically a city, really has a small-town feel, so this will really hit the area hard.
