On this day of remembering my Grandmother, we also remember all those who were lost on this day in 2001.
A book I read afterwards by Patricia Carrington, Julia Collins, Claudia Gerbasi and Ann Haynes, four widows of 9/11, had a profound affect on me. It is a book of loss and hope and I urge anyone who has not read it to do so.
The Title is “Love You, Mean It”. It came about after Julia shouted it out to their helicopter pilot during a visit to Scottsdale. It became their saying between themselves.
Since 9/11 I always make sure that when DH and The Boys go out the door, I tell them to be safe and I love them.
Love You, Mean It.
