    As with Paul Gilbey, who seems to have been known to many relatives and friends throughout SE Essex, UK, so too must a myriad of people in Birmingham and East Coast USA be riding along in pretence of having a relative, even a very close one, called Andrew Bailey. While some of them may be keeping 9/11 related secrets, I don’t think this is one of them.
    On Andrew’s tribute page we notice another occasional visitor, Edlyn

    Initially Edlyn Cabrera in 2003 but subsequently Edlyn Sarante, still of the Bronx, NY.
    The tribute is verbose and scripted but from a close friend, with some unscripted codicils…
    PS. I got married 07/07/07 hmmmm

    Take care Mr. Bailey “lol”

    Well well well.
    The twitter try-out
    leads to a dead FB page, but here’s the current one… kuka the clue-ka there.

    Perhaps “we will never forget” – or do they want to forget it after all? **

    A curious friend flits by, clearly he’s not in on anything…

    Other visitors to the legacy page keeping the death alive include
    Gissette Benitez
    and Melissa Florio-Benitez
    who must be relatives of Aila.
    Melissa Studied Criminal Justice at St. Francis College and
    Studied Anthropology at College of Staten Island and is Married to Tim Florio
    From Brooklyn, New York

    I know you are laughing in heaven! Can’t wait to see you again!
    Gissette, Kyel, and Elias

    Whaaaaaat??? Gissette, married to William Flynn, is perhaps Aila’s sister.

    One more comment from 2011 at Legacy is worth noting, that of
    ~ Alicia G Guerrero, Deerfield Beach, Florida, b. 12/18/70 formerly of the Bronx,[relative Alejo O. Guerrera] and who sounds like another of the “old Marshians”.
    who seems to be in the know. Otherwise all tracks are covered.

    To wrap up this “victim” Andrew Bailey for the moment, here’s the linkedin for Edlyn
    Edlyn Cabrera

    December 1997 – February 1999 (1 year 3 months)

    Administrative Assistant
    Marsh USA, Inc

    (5 years 5 months)
    Serviced three separate departments.
    Arranged meetings, travel arrangements, car services for employees.
    Maintained and updated phone list, attendance records, schedules, supplies.
    Met with prospective clients and vendors.

    1996 – 2004 (8 years)

    **Bradley Morrow Senior Vice President
    November 1997 – June 2016 (18 years 8 months)

    who in turn was recommended by
    John Schmidt
    Global Network Security Director

    Marsh & McLennan
    2000 – 2005 (5 years)
    John Schmidt has no online connection with the WTC or 9/11…but while searching I came across an unrelated online source from a Princeton alumnus Red Barrington who, in 1984, travelled from Englewood NJ to the 85th floor of the WTC to work at Keefe Bruyette and Woods.

    On September 11, 2001, our headquarters in the World Trade Center was destroyed and 67 employees perished. Five of our nine board members, including our co-CEO and Chairman, died. The employees of several departments were nearly completely lost.

    Were these fictitious board members? All their attendance at board meetings faked? Surely not?

    Any UK “victims”? Surely not? To be sure, yes…
    . Derek Sword, 29, from Dundee, was working for American finance firm Keefe, Bruyette & Woods when the second jet went into the south tower.
    Scottish “victims” are more difficult to trace and prove their existence but perhaps I’ll have a look now.

    reference –
    Vice Chairman Andrew Senchak was “away from his office”..

    Click to access A-Battered-Firms-Long-Way-Back.pdf


    Chairman and Co-CEO on 9/11 was Joseph Berry and his 23 year old son Christopher Berry who had just joined the firm three months before 9/11…

    The current board is here
    including some 9/11 old timers…
    e.g. Seth Blair who has a three year lacuna after May 2001 in his Marsh CV. Gardening leave?

    and Peter J Wirth, on the books since 1982…

    and Co-CEO John G Duffy – 1978 KBW vintage.

    Lots of secrets there.
    Who were the other board members who “died”? I’ll find out from the list below

    • This reply was modified 4 years, 11 months ago by xileffilex.

    Before we move on to Derek Sword, one of the numerous twins to “die” in the WTC [and whose siblings leave significant trace] who were the high profile directors of KBW who “perished”?
    Reference lists
    [no trace of Seth Blair in the post-9/11 phone list]

    Key directors who “perished” were David Shelby Berry, 43 [correction to above – it was Christopher Duffy, 23 who “died” along with director Joseph Berry, no relation]
    Joseph A Lenihan, 41 of Cos Cob and Thomas Francis Theurkauf, 44 The last two also left families
    Theurkauf – wife = Robin, children Tommy, Teddy, Henry.

    DS Berry – In addition to his mother, Nancy, of New York, Mr. Berry is survived by his wife, Paula Grant, an executive of Scholastic Inc.; three sons, Nile Philip, Reed Nicholas and Alexander Ashton; a father, Charles N. Berry Jr. of Oklahoma City; and two brothers, C. Nelson Berry III of Seattle and Michaels C. Berry of Bainbridge, Wash.

    The final interesting “death” there is of analyst Dean Eberling who had a high media presence. [wife Amy…”In his last few years, his wife said, he had been trying to spend more time with his daughters, Cori, now 15, and Lauren, who turned 10 on the day of the terrorist attack” – sounds like he hadn’t been around too much as they were growing up….]
    sept 28 1998
    working for Putnam, Lovell, de Guardiola & Thornton.

    july 12 2000, working for KBW
    and several other quotes in the media upto August 2001. He was a go to person for a quote.

    Somewhere in the CNN archives there will be a tape of a TV interview with him
    The transcript is here
    CNN TV march 20 2001

    Sounds pretty real. Or was it a cardboard cut-out in the board room and in front of the CNN interviewer?


    There was over $30m from KBW to be spread around to families of the “deceased”.
    Oct. 10, 2001

    My feeling is we’ll pay the families entirely in cash for their stock, and do it as quickly as we can.

    It looks as if we’ll pay around $30 million — the high 30s, tops — to buy out our shareholders who were lost. The payouts will not harm the firm’s financial position one bit. We have $150 million of capital now, so we’ll have around $120 million afterwards and we’ll have no need to raise additional capital.

    There are four remaining members of our board of directors — myself, [John Duffy] [Vice Chairman] Andy Senchak, Tom Michaud [executive vice president of equity trading] and Michael O’Brien, head of asset management. The other four directors were lost.
    I’ll look at their miraculous escapes later.
    What of our Scottish victim, Derek O. Sword?

    Family of 9/11 victim hope for peace after death of Osama bin Laden

    Derek grew up in Barnhill, went to Monifieth High School and studied commerce at Abertay University, where he graduated with a BA honours degree. He went to work for an Edinburgh investment bank, moving to New York in 1995…
    Derek, who represented Scotland at tennis as a teenager, met fiancee Maureen Sullivan at a club dinner and they planned to marry in 2002.
    On the morning of the attacks Mr Sword, who worked on the 89th floor of 2 WTC, the South Towerm made three calls to his fiancee and one to his parents to assure them he was fine.
    Friends and family on both sides of the Atlantic commemorated his life through the Derek Sword Challenge squash trophy donated by KBW.
    Derek is survived by parents David and Irene, who live in the Dundee area, elder brother Graeme (42) and twin brother Allan.

    I’m sure he was alright.
    September 13 2001 [while still “missing” according to his employer]
    Asked how she was coping, she responded: “Just, you know, holding in there.”

    She added: “We’ve been in constant touch with his family and his brother in Dubai.
    “Everybody has been ringing the doorbell and phoning up to offer support.
    “When I can’t stand sitting around any more I go out hanging flyers everywhere with his photo and details.
    “We are constantly calling hospitals and it’s just a case of hoping.”

    We? And why cut out his elder brother?

    On the surface it might be a romance of convenience with “fiancee” Maureen Sullivan… her subsequent husband runs a restaurant in Rhode Island and she works in NY where he also teaches.

    Maureen Sullivan, a pharmacist who became engaged to him 10 days ago on holiday in Scotland, said: “After the second plane hit, he phoned me again to tell me that his building was now on fire, but he was OK, to call his parents to make sure they know he’s OK, and that he was going to be evacuated.”

    [i.e. written in the evening of 9/11…]
    September 11 2011
    In October 2007, Maureen Sullivan Derek’s fiancee at the time he died married Ed Moon, who she met on a trip to Block Island. David and Irene were delighted to attend the wedding.

    I bet they were.
    In July 2002, Maureen donated a memorial bench at Block Island, RI.
    because they had visited Block Island several times, staying at the Neptune House..

    Jaunary 13 2002 Sunday Mail [Glasgow]
    Fingering her engagement ring, and fighting back tears, Maureen confessed yesterday: “When I wear it now, I feel very close to him. When I take it off, I just feel empty.
    “I have no plans for the future. New York is getting back to normal but I never will. I have no normality any more.”
    The 30-year-old New York chemist got engaged to Derek just weeks before the attack.
    Derek, from Broughty Ferry, Dundee, brought Maureen home to Scotland before popping the question in romantic Skibo Castle, in Sutherland.
    Maureen, who was in Britain yesterday to support a squash tournament dedicated to her fiance, The Derek Sword Trophy Challenge, said: “It was a traditional proposal. He went down on one knee and everything. I knew he was going to propose, but the ring was a complete surprise.
    “Derek was just wonderful, always laughing and making jokes. He always made people feel comfortable.”
    Since the tragedy, Maureen has been in regular touch with Derek’s family in Dundee.
    His father, retired lecturer David, said: “On September 11, he phoned me and said an airliner had flown into number one tower but he was in number two tower and was OK.
    “He said ‘I have to go now dad.’ That was the last time we spoke.”
    The Derek Sword trophy Challenge between London and New York is set to become an annual event.
    Derek’s brother Graeme, 33, said: “It’s a very fitting tribute and exactly the sort of thing that Derek would have been involved in had he been here. Maybe this will help heal some of the wounds.

    Sounds very scripted.

    Here’s the provider of the back story for Derek Sword, Maureen Sullivan [in lilac on right] in 2014

    source –

    From the Guardian , September 23 2001
    Despite the fact that they were twins, Allan, 29, always saw Derek as one of a kind. While they and their older brother Graeme, 32, all played hockey or tennis to a national standard and worked in investment banking, Derek was the one who was unafraid to be noticed in the crowd.
    ..the others being shy, then?

    Evelyn, wife of Allan posts a twin photo to Legacy from Dubai in January 2002:
    Often they would be mistaken for each other and many times when Derek was visiting us, and other people weren’t aware they were twins – people would always mistake Derek for Allan and Derek would always play along for the laugh….I will never forget you Derek, I just have to take a look at my very own husband, and there you are.

    Well, they don’t look at all identical..
    Elder brother Graeme did play squash for Scotland in 1989 in the World championships in Singapore. He now works for Blue Water Energy


    Twin Allan is now in Bahrain with the Arab Banking Corporation,

    Spotlight Squash in the US

    at the annual Derek Sword squash trophy.
    “In November 2002, Derek would have run in the Marathon. It was always going to be around his 30th birthday (that he did the Marathon), explained Sword’s good friend, NYAC pro Pat Canavan, who is co-director of the event with Alan Thatcher. “His parents were going to come over then. So, from now on, we are always going to have the event on Marathon Saturday.”

    Dave and Irene made an interesting comment, that for them it is sad to think they are coming to New York for Derek because he will not be here.

    Philip Norton, Cantor’s technological guru, was on the floor with Shaun [Lynn] and remembers the chilling intercom exchanges.

    Lynn and Norton watched dumbfounded as colleagues jumped to their deaths.

    Speaking from New York, Cantor’s global CEO and chairman [Howard] Lutnick, 50, is happy to put the record straight. “The survival of the business is due to the London office and their superhuman efforts. It is without question the reason our firm is here today.
    Lynn, 48, now CEO of the London operation, and his then boss, Lee Amaitis, rallied the troops to fight back from disaster

    Perhaps Lynn is unconcerned that Eaton is not listed on the Cantor memorial site.

    The techological guru
    He began his career in financial markets in 1984, trading Eurobonds for Smith Barney, Harris Upham, followed by 11 years at Cantor Fitzgerald, managing businesses that broker European Government Bonds. His next move was to Head of Sales for eSpeed International in London, where he oversaw the introduction of eSpeed to the European financial markets.

    In 1999 he became Global Head of Sales at eSpeed, where he drove the sales effort for eSpeed’s Software Solutions and eSpeed’s online initiatives and added new products to the eSpeed electronic trading platform.

    The top execs were all family men we are told by Lutnick

    Glenn Kirwin, Head of Product Development. I have known Glenn for years and he was by far one of the brightest, most analytical executives in the industry. It was a pleasure to observe his thought process, the manner in which he analyzed issues and his ability to problem solve. Glenn was truly a creative force in the eSpeed family. His understanding of the business and attention to detail was virtually unparalleled. The systems he designed and the businesses he created are something his wife Joan and their two children can always look at with great pride.

    Anybody who survived in the above list would surely have something to say about 9/11. What about Cara Kiewel?
    Cara is still about
    one of whom is Amy Nauiokas, another eSpeed alumna
    Senior Managing Director, Partner
    Cantor Fitzgerald
    2000 – 2004 (4 years)
    Amy was part of the management team responsible for driving Cantor’s brokerage business online. In 1999, she helped lead the successful IPO of Cantor’s online business eSpeed, Inc., which was later sold to NASDAQ for $750m. Amy also played a critical role in the company’s rebuilding efforts after September 11th, serving as Head of Investor Relations, Global Marketing, Business Development and Human Resources for the firm.

    What was Amy’s 9/11 escape story? She overslept as told in 2007

    She worked for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center and her lie-in was on September 11, 2001. “It’s hard to not just think that I was very lucky that day”, Nauiokas says.

    Sitting for an hour with Nauiokas at the top of Barclays’ headquarters in Canary Wharf, you get the impression that this is the longest she has sat still in a whirlwind career that has taken her to the top of Britain’s biggest retail stockbroker and the management committee of Barclays Wealth by the age of 34.

    Amy doesn’t do 9/11 or Cantor on her FB page…

    Nor does Cara

    who seems to have done a London – NYC swap with Suria Clarke. I guess Cara would have known Suria well.
    November 08, 2004
    Cara Kiewel, VP of PR in Europe and Asia, handled much of the initial media requests – from the US and worldwide – from Cantor’s office in London. Amy Nauiokas, former SVP and director of marketing communications, set up an emergency outpost at her home in New York with the five surviving coworkers. “We were only accustomed to being read about in the business section” of the newspaper, says Kiewel. “It was a whole different kind of media relations: the news cycle. Business-to-business companies are in the news, but we weren’t one of them. It was learning how to be the news instead of generating reasons for people to write about you, like the traditional, proactive PR campaign.” Just over three years later, the communications team is facing another daunting challenge. Although executives know Cantor can’t completely separate its identity from 9/11, the team is aiming to focus on the firm’s suddenly expanding business story. Cantor is increasing its investment banking and asset management services. In doing so, this October it spun off its inter-dealer voice brokerage business with the creation of BGC Partners.

    Sept 27 2001
    Cantor, which lost more than 700 out of about 1,000 employees and its New York headquarters in the attacks, is relying heavily on a team of about 600 at its offices in London, said Cara Kiewel, a spokesperson for Cantor and its electronic trading arm, eSpeed , on Thursday.
    Vice President Communications BGC Partners 2000 – 2006 (6 years)
    Vice President, Public Relations Cantor Fitzgerald and eSpeed, Inc. 2000 – 2005 (5 years)

    Beth Logler aka Elizabeth Claire Logler, b 10/16/69 is an interesting 9/11 “death” character. She joined eSpeed only in January 2001 as vice president of investor relations , same time period as Rachel Clarke aka Suria Clarke. Logler was American however.
    she was in thick of planning her wedding in December to Doug Cleary, her boyfriend of six years.

    Everyone who knew Beth will always remember her wit and spark. Many have said that she lit up a room. Beth was an avid runner and skier, a competitor. This drive made her strive for the best personally and professionally. She was happiest when she was at the beach with her family, fiancé and friends. Her greatest joy was making her god daughter Caroline laugh. Beth holds a part in our hearts that no one else will ever fill. She will be forever loved by her parents, her brother Brian, Jane Ellen, Caroline, her fiancé Doug, and all her friends. She loved us all and showered us with her kindness and generosity.
    Claire and Bob Logler, Parents

    Not sure who JJAne Ellen, Caroline are, perhaps sisters?

    Yet another wonderwoman.
    I worked closely with Beth on many projects at eSpeed.….

    When Beth came aboard eSpeed, we hit it off instantly…

    Rather strangely, for someone with such a high position

    Beth’s rather slim Legacy file is here for reference, which needs closer examination – one writer mentions meeting her fiance’s brother, Colin Cleary.

    As expected, the parents and fiance Doug Cleary were wheeled out in 2011

    Every Sept. 10, the Loglers spend the night in Manhattan, in the two-bedroom Tudor City apartment that Beth, who worked at eSpeed, was decorating before her planned marriage on Dec. 30, 2001, to Doug Cleary. And early each Sept. 11, before the Loglers head for Ground Zero, they meet Cleary in the lobby. He hasn’t been inside the apartment for 10 years.
    Now 43, he has not married, though he hasn’t ruled it out. In 2002, he saw to it that a bench in one of Tudor City’s parks bears a plaque with Beth’s name on it. Her memory is with him always.
    “I don’t try to dwell on it,” he said, “but I don’t choose to bury the memory either.”

    There’s the expected charity
    Jan 11 2006
    The New York Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI-NY) is calling on all public and investor relations agencies and in-house investor relations and communications departments in the tri-state area to help children who lost parents on 9/11 start their careers by partnering with the NIRI-NY 9/11 Beth Logler Internship Program

    NIRI-NY receives applications by partnering with the NYPD, the FDNY Family Assistance Unit (, Tuesday’s Children (, the Silver Shield Foundation ( and the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund (

    The internship program was announced by the NIRI-NY board in December of 2001. That board shortly thereafter learned of the loss of member Beth Logler in the World Trade Center collapse. The program was subsequently renamed the NIRI-NY 9/11 Beth Logler Internship Program.

    Howard Lutnick’s Second Life
    New York Magazine – By Meryl Gordon
    His fiercely loyal secretary, Maryann Burns, comes in to ask a question. He looks perplexed for a minute, then says with a gentle smile, “Let’s ask Beth.” He is referring to a dead colleague, Beth Logler. Burns smiles sweetly back. “It’s just a thing we do,” Lutnick says. “It’s a way to remember someone.”

    Bit of discontinuity perhaps, in the Eaton narrative?

    In the article above (London Evening Standard; 19/9/2001) Eaton was supposedly transferred by his employer, bond brokers Garban, to their NYC office. Where he was then headhunted by Cantor Fitzgerald:

    Yet on the decade anniversary, The Evening Standard (11/9/2011) ran another story about Wortley. Quoting Shaun Lynn, MD of Cantor as saying: “I hired him, lovely fellow, he worked for me in Frankfurt. Then I sent him to New York.

    Almost immediately after 9/11, the Cantor offices in Frankfurt and Paris were closed
    October 25 2001

    Cantor Fitzgerald will close offices in Frankfurt, Germany, and Paris, as the bond broker that lost about 700 employees in the World Trade Center attacks seeks to reduce expenses.
    The firm, which before last month handled about one-quarter of the trades in the $3-trillion U.S. government bond market, shifted most trading to its ESpeed Inc. unit, an electronic trading system.

    “Trading can take place anywhere” as a result of advances in electronic trading, said Tony Tucker, managing director of Executive Resourcing Group, a recruiting agency. Last month’s events probably forced Cantor Fitzgerald “to bring forward some of the things happening in the industry anyway.”

    The broker’s customers in Germany and France can continue trading electronically, spokeswoman Cara Kiewel said. The 48 staff members affected have been offered positions in London, Kiewel said.

    Cara Kiewel was Suria Clarke’s opposite number in London [see previous posts]
    658 people off the books would be quite a saving without shutting offices, or perhaps both were required?

    Just looking for anyone who might have worked for Cantor in Frankfurt.

    Originally from Brighton, Robert sold his one-bedroom bachelor flat in Battersea 10 years ago to pursue his dream in the US.

    He had been selling bonds at brokers Garban in London and transferred for a brief spell to the firm’s New York offices. His talent was recognised and rewarded by the firm but in no time he was headhunted by Cantor Fitzgerald – one of the world’s largest financial companies. He rose rapidly into the higher echelons of New York’s financial world.

    The Eaton Narrative is all over the place C/F are clearly trying to cover up something here.
    According to the above article Eaton sold his London flat in 1992 when he was 28, prior to being transferred to New York by his then employer Garbans.
    Yet I’m sure he never worked for C/F’s espeed until 1999. So 7 years with Garbans in New York is hardly a brief spell.
    Is it possible Eaton may have been doing some underhand business with C/F whilst still employed with Garbans ?

    I think we can assume the flat was purchased in the late 80s maybe when he was 24/25. This would have been at the height of the 1980s financial boom, so by selling it in 1992 he would have made a significant loss.

    The C/F Frankfurt office clearly played a major role in the 9/11 scam & was important for setting up espeed. It was handy for it to be been shut down immediately after 9/11.

    Clearly Robert Eaton was making regular New York to Frankfurt trips. One trip just 2 weeks prior to 9/11 according to his father.
    And an ex C/F employee posting on the soccer forum, saying he can remember Eaton working in the Frankfurt office.

    Antipodean – a couple of people who allegedly knew Robert Eaton have apparently been overlooked, one of them had posted on his legacy page of 2007. The other seems like a genuine witness, although if Robert is living in a flat in London, I would have thought he’d have found some football chums nearer home to play with on a Sunday

I remember him as a bubbly and fun-loving guy and I hope his loved ones can take some comfort from the thought that he brought fun until people’s lives. With best wishes.

    It’s the standard scripted story,
    The morning of Sept. 11, 2001, started out as a usual working day for me. I was employed as a government securities broker, working at the World Trade Center’s North Tower… I said hello to friends waiting in the lobby who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, a competitor of my company….

    I waited on the street adjacent from the towers, hoping to spot my nephew Steve Strobert exiting the building. Steve worked for Cantor Fitzgerald….
    My nephew Steve was killed that morning, along with many friends and coworkers. These people left for work that morning expecting to return home to their loved ones. Steve left behind a 1-year-old son

    When I close my eyes, I see my brother, Steven, as a small child. Although we were years apart, Steven was such a joy to be with that we spent hours playing together……Steven’s son, Frankie, shares Steven’s incredibly joyful disposition. Steven was robbed of so many joys of Frankie and Frankie was robbed of Steven. Seeing what Steven left in Frankie is too painful for the thought to remain in one’s mind very long. I only hope that Steven knew that I, and many others, will always be there to protect his son. Steven showed his courage during the ’93 attack by helping a pregnant stranger slowly walk down the 100+ flights of stairs of the WTC. Steven, like so many others who were lost in the Twin Towers, was aware of the possibility of additional attacks. However, they were determined to face their lives like the hero’s they were. I love you, Steven.

    Strobert, who was 33 at the time of his death, was known for his generosity and even helped save a pregnant woman during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, according to his obituary.

    “The backpack program memorializes his constant displays of generosity and compassion for those less fortunate,” said Mark Dehnert, a friend of Strobert and the president of the foundation.

    That would be the staged Risk Waters conference for the 9/11 script.

    There is no available obituary for Giulia Ferraina [who was a teacher in 2008 yet is said to be dead by 2015, or for that matter any information on Mario, who also was a carpenter, like Andre b 1978]

    PS The Representative Andrew Hastie, who was taught by Elise’s mother was born in 1982, so that would have been in the 90s when she taught him.

    An extension of the Cantor Family – the Sand/Fraser nexus
    On Park Avenue now, Lutnick shares his glassed-in corner office with Stuart Fraser, the easygoing vice-chairman of the firm. The two started together as trainees at Cantor in 1983 and became very close; Lutnick even played matchmaker years ago, fixing up Fraser, a Missouri-bred wilderness-camp enthusiast, with Elise Sand, the woman who became his wife and the mother of his three children. Fraser, who has stayed at his desk during the recent bomb scares to, as he says, “lead by example,” nonetheless cannot bring himself to muster his old macho Wall Street front these days. Mourning his brother-in-law, Fraser tells employees who seem shaky that he’s logging hours with a therapist and urges them to do so, too. “I feel novocained,” he admits. “There are days when I’m just numb. It took me three weeks to realize this was not a dream, a bad Dallas episode.”

    He tells a story about going to dinner with his wife, Howard, and Allison recently. For weeks after September 11, Fraser says, Elise, who lost her brother in the attack, couldn’t bear to turn on the TV news; all she could handle was the Food Network, for hours on end. She was still grieving when she had dinner with the Lutnicks, and Howard gave her a speech: “Elise, you have to stop acting like you died,” he said. “You didn’t die. You have to live.”

    Hmm. Who would that be?
    Eric Sand
    A stock trader at Cantor Fitzgerald, Eric Sand grew up in Scarsdale and lived the last three years in Hawthorne with his wife, Michele. They have a son, Aaron, who was 18 months then. Eric Sand was on the 106th floor of Tower 1 when the airliner hit and last spoke to his mother-in-law, Sandy Rosenblum, to say there had been an accident but he was OK.

    His parents, Sandy and Lloyd Sand, drove up from Florida when they heard Eric was among the missing. Other family members who were in the New York area for the wedding of a cousin stayed for support, Michele Sand said.

    Sand enjoyed kung fu and studied at a center in Manhattan. He volunteered with a charity organization called RBI, which works to revive baseball in the inner cities. Sand’s brother-in-law Stuart Fraser, an executive at Cantor Fitzgerald, was not at work on Tuesday, Michele said.
    Not even a feeble excuse for Stuart.

    During the past six months, 14- and 16-hour days have been the norm. Michele keeps busy running to the hardware store, shopping for her son, buying furniture for her house, reading a good book…..normal for Michele still feels very far away as she struggles to put her life back together without her husband.

    After Eric’s death, what was left of Michele’s life in New York followed her to her parents’ South Florida home.

    “I think I knew almost immediately that I was going to come down to Florida at least in the short term, because my support network was there,” says Michele, whose parents, Sandy and Barry Rosenblum, moved to Lake Worth four years ago. “Not only their emotional support for me, but their help for Aaron.
    “I didn’t know how long I would stay,” says Michele, 32. “I was pushed a little bit. Everybody said this was the right thing to do.”

    Simon Maddison has a lot of back story in Harlow – Passmores School
    friend Jonathan C Vogel [two years older, Harlow]
    I can’t get a handle on his best man, Stephen Head of Hampshire England though, whose apparent wife Nicki seems unusually far more concerned, despite never having met him…
    Tributes seem to be tapering off, especially from the family of his sister Elizabeth M [Liz] Collis and her three children Gemma, Louisa and Nicola and brother Stephen [wife Susan daughters Emily and Kathryn [Kate]

    The geneaology checks out too – His mother, one of nine children from South Wales, Violent Margaret, died in 1997. His father Peter J Maddison was quoted on the same page of a Sussex newspaper as the relatives of well documented “victim” of 9/11, Robert Eaton.
    Simon Maddison, 40, was killed when the first plane hit the north tower, where he worked as a consultant for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 103rd floor of the World Trade Centre.

    His father Peter Maddison, 76, from Horsham, said a couple of months after: “We just try to carry on one day at a time, otherwise it would be too much to bear.

    “Simon was a son to be proud of, generous to a fault and totally dedicated to his wife and children. It is really hard to believe he is not coming back.”
    For Simon’s American wife Maureen, 39, who he lived with in New Jersey, their three children are the legacy he has left behind.
    Simon was described as an adoring father of Caileigh, seven, Kyle, four, and Sidney, one. They may never see their father again but they have been taught what a special person he was.
    The family flew from the US to attend a remembrance service in Westminster Abbey in November last year for the British victims of September 11.

    Caileigh and Kyle presented a posy to the Queen as she arrived.

    Mrs Maddison said: “The real importance of presenting the flowers is about them knowing their father was so special that even the Queen wants to have a memorial service for him and the others who died.”
    Widower Peter was listed living with his daughter and husband Norman Collis in 2002.

    liked by widow Maureen
    and Simon’s daughter

    No comment from

    It seems like fun all the way.

    Dawn Thomas of Harlow provided a tribute at legacy.
    Here’s Mark Thomas, and Maureen likes it

    Dawn is a friend of Maureen

    I notice another like from Liz’s youngest daughter and niece of Simon
    now Nicola Fletcher,
    studied at Tanbridge House School
    which is interesting because a teacher at the very same school died in mysterious circumstances in 2009 [inquest 2010]
    and…he was an old boy of Robert Eaton’s old school, Brighton College, perhaps a faked death.
    A note on the Tanbridge House School website from headmaster Jules White says: “I am extremely sorry to confirm that Stephen Head ‘slipped away’ from us all on Saturday morning. Our deepest sympathies are, of course, extended to all that knew and loved him.
    who was actually a contemporary of Robert Eaton

    Perhaps just a coincidence

    This may be Stephen M Head of Andover Hampshire, married to Nicola J Head.
    I don’t seen any link between Simon and Mr Head or even a marriage between the Heads.

    Last word from Maureen…

    Well, everybody’s all still there and very ‘together’ in 2016, 15 years on….


    Here’s one for the site’s Australian members to look into.

    After some recent googling I was trying to get information of the Qantas flight LA to Sydney on 9/11, because it was a connecting flight for Australian passengers aboard AA11 & AA77. Given that American Airlines code share with Qantas.

    Alberto Dominguez who I thought was a probable sim.Allegedly aboard AA11.
    He worked for Qantas and was apparently known to self styled Oz 9/11 activist John Bursill.

    If you follow the links in the above Lets Roll post it illustrates that Dominguez cancelled his flight at the last minute.

    I thought that I knew all there was to know about this Sim. Until I recently discovered that he was involved in the start up of SBS Australia’s first migrant ethnic TV station.


    Alberto Dominguez was the first Australian to die on 9/11. Better known by his nickname, ‘El Pocho’, he perished on-board American Airlines flight 11, the first plane to plunge into the World Trade Center on 9/11. He was a pioneer, one of the first broadcasters to breathe life into SBS Radio, where he worked for 13 years.

    But in spite of being a beloved and prominent figure in the Spanish-speaking community, when news of his passing hit mainstream Australian media, he was only remembered as a 66-year old migrant, a ‘Qantas baggage-handler.’
