Incredible Link Between Buffalo Couple and 911 Attacks Will Bring Tears to Your Eyes
This is one of the most incredible stories I've ever heard. And I hadn't heard it before today.
She was on her way to Buffalo to commemorate her husband Sean Rooney's birthday.
Sean Rooney was killed in the September 11th attacks in 2001.
After the planes hit the World Trade Center, Sean called Eckert. They exchanged voice mails and briefly spoke. He made his way to the 105th floor, trying to reach the roof, when the tower collapsed. She never heard from him again.
After the attacks, Beverly became an advocate for the creation of the 9/11 Commission. Just days before her death, she had met with President Obama in her role as an advocate for those affected by 9/11.
Here's a recording of Beverly talking about her conversation with Sean as she spoke to him one last time.
