I'll start you off with a little haiku tribute to Gregory James Malone and to all of the victims of the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001:
We are guardians
Our hearts crumbled on that day
Etched in memory
Gregory James Malone worked on the 84th floor of 2 WTC (South Tower). He worked for Maxcor/Euro Brokers. Flight 175 hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. between floors 77 and 85. I watched it as it happened. My husband called from work telling me to put the TV on. He was working at the airport in the little tower, and they had heard news that something had happened. Sure enough, the North Tower was on fire. I thought, 'There's been a terrible accident.' As we were talking, United Airlines Flight 175 appeared and slammed into the South Tower. I could not speak properly, trying to grasp it.
Greg was 42 years old and has been described as a man's man. He grew up in Rumson, New Jersey and lived in Hoboken. He went to Lehigh University and was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. A bachelor(who looked like he might have been getting ready to settle down..), he loved baseball, fishing and hockey. He joined Euro brokers in 2001 and loved life in the fast lane. He loved the thrill of taking risks, and was a funny and kind man. Survivors include his parents Lawrence and Helen, his sister and brother Jane and Lawrence, and his fiancee Fiona.
Here is the guest book for Gregory at Legacy.com. He is sorely missed by many who knew and loved him.
Here is the profile that Maxco/Euro brokers has online for Gregory. They also have profiles on all of the employees that they lost that day.
Eight years on, we still feel the devastating loss. We are determined never to forget the lives of the people that we lost that day.
