A tribute to Mary D’Antonio

September 11, 2009

 9-11-01  A day that never should be forgotten- nor the people that perished.

World Trade Center

It is my honor to pay tribute to one of the 2,996.  Mary D’Antonio in my research was one wonderful woman. It is sad that her life was cut short. Left missing her are two daughters and a husband surrounded by other family, friends and business acquaintances. In her 55 years she exemplified what it is to be a hard worker, courteous, loving, thoughtful and thorough. She must have had her faith in God as a base in which she pulled her values and steadfastness serving others and pulling through tough moments.  To call the morning of 9/11/09 a tough moment is indeed an understatement. It came to light that because she had been absent the day before- she made an extra effort to come in early that morning to make sure she would be on top of any extra work.  It does not do one any good to ‘what-if’ in hindsight when either way a great loss is still felt.

If it is possible to miss someone that one has never met then Mary D’Antonio is on my list.  May she and her family and friends come to know peace today and in the future. It is apparent she gently touched many lives and only in our passing and ‘life review’ will we truly know how we affected the world for the better.

    Sillyca – thank you! Something today told me to google Mary’s name and your tribute popped up. I know the attacks happened 11 years ago, but to Mary’s daughters it was only yesterday!! People think time mends all; I am her daughter’s sister-in-law. Mary has 3 grandchildren and I must say they are all adorable. Mary would be very pround of the young
    ladies and mothers her girls have become, she is missed very much by all.
