This is Lisa Fenn Gordenstein.

Lisa Fenn Gordenstein was, says a neighbor, "the kind of person who when she saw you in the neighborhood, wouldn't just wave hello - she'd pull her car over to ask how you were."

Her boss, the President of TJX Companies, described her as an excellent businesswoman - but remembered most that she "loved being a mom."

Her husband and her two daughters - David, Carly and Samantha - miss her. Her other family members miss her - her friends miss her.

On this September 11th - the fifth anniversary of that awful day, the day that Lisa Fenn Gordenstein and 2,995 other people lost their lives, I blog in honor of Lisa.

I honor her life - as from all of the descriptions I've read, I think I would have quite liked her had I known her in person. And I honor the impression she made on the lives she touched - the impact that she made.

I hope you'll take a moment today to visit this site: Bloggers Remember - and browse other blog posts dedicated to those who were killed on September 11, 2001. I hope you'll remember the way that many of those killed lived their lives - and that you'll pray/send kind and healing thoughts to the loved ones they left behind.

Oh Nicole, what a wonderful post. I wasn't able to check out that site yesterday because I couldn't access it - I think the traffic going in to it was way too high. I got in there this morning, though, and have been reading and crying all morning.

Thank you for this.
