My sister-in-law Susan Ann Ruggiero died in the towers on 9/11 (96th fl). I went to look for her on 9/12. My family and hers never cried so much or so hard. We expected to sort through injured victims to find her. There were none. This was very hard to understand. We went from Hospital to hospital looking for her. The Red Cross was amazing, so caring, so compassionate.
My sister, her father, brother and I did not want to go home. It meant telling my brother that we didn’t find her.
Through DNA, her remains were found in November of 2001. She is buried in Holy Rude in a triangle for 9/11 victims. We never got over her loss, we only learn to live with it. We miss her daily.
