Our hearts and prayers go out to you, your family and all involved in this
tragedy. We are so shocked by the magnitude of it. I visited the WTC
years ago and can't believe anything could infect that amount of damage in
terms of physical destruction as well as human lives. This disaster as well
as the other terrorist acts are constantly on our minds.
No words can express our sorrow. Please be safe. Jim Call
