Beverly Eckert, whose husband Sean Rooney was killed in the September 11 attacks in 2001, was a passenger on the plane that crashed on Thursday outside Buffalo, New York, according to her sister. All 49 people aboard Colgan Air Flight 3407 perished in the crash. One person on the ground was also killed.
Sean Rooney was in one of the Twin Towers when he was killed. Beverly Eckert was a prominent member of "Voices of September 11" and was on her way to Buffalo to celebrate what would have been Sean's 58th birthday.
How strange is this? What are the odds that a Husband and Wife would die this way almost 8 years apart?
Perhaps Beverly's sister said it best when she reported this info to a Buffalo newspaper..."and now she's with him."
Maybe it was meant to be.
