Message Follows:

Today was a tragedy for all of America and to my family, a very personal
Lynn and my Niece Liz's husband, Jeremy Glick was on United flight 93 this
morning. When the Hijackers took control of flight 93. Jeremy called my
who in-turn conferenced him to 911. Jeremy relayed to the police what was
happening as the hijacking unfolded. As our niece Liz listened, Jeremy told
police there were three Arab terrorists with knives and a large red box that
they claimed contained a bomb. Jeremy tracked the second by second details
relayed them to the police by phone. After several minutes of describing the
scene, Jeremy and several other passengers decided there was nothing to lose
rushing the hijackers. Although United Flight 93 crashed outside of
with the loss of all souls. Jeremy and the other patriotic heroes saved the
lives of many people on the ground that would have died if the Arab
had been able to complete their heinous mission.

Please offer your prayers for all of those who perished or were injured in
tragic of all days and to our niece Liz Glick and her 2-month-old child,
Emerson, who are left without their loving Husband and Father. May we
Jeremy and the other brave souls as heroes, soldiers and Americans' on
flight 93 whom so gallantry gave their lives to save many others.

Lynn, our four adult children and I are headed to New York to be with our
family during this time of great sadness

All of my best,
