You know, I was home. And I, the only reason I wasn’t where I was every morning, subsequent to the 26th day of July, I was – my mornings were spent, usually at a breakfast meeting at Windows. An 8 o’clock breakfast meeting, Windows, the top floor. And then going down to visit with my tenants, my new tenants at the Trade Center, getting to know them, understanding their problems and so forth, ascertaining how I could we could service their needs. Better! And which is a – one of the first things you do when you acquire a property, get to meet your – meet your tenants and start talking with them.
And so my mornings were spent at the Trade Center. And then by noon I was back uptown. And so, that particular morning, because I have light colored hair and fair skin, and an annuity to the dermatologist, my wife, God bless her, made an appointment for me, at the doctor. And I remember dressing to go the doctor and finally saying to my wife, ‘Sweetheart, I’ve got so much to do downtown, I got to cancel this, I’ve got to go downtown. And she said, ‘You’re not going to cancel this appointment, you’re going to the dermatologist.’ You know, having been, been married now to the same woman for 46 years here, you get the sense of determination on occasion, the voice, so I say, ‘Ok, yes, dear. I’ll go. I’ll go, fine.’ And then, just minutes later, she got a telephone call to turn on our television set and witnessed this horrendous circumstance.

We were in occupancy, temporary occupancy the 88th floor of the North Tower, prior to or moving permanently into the 91st floor of the North Tower. And so my children, two of my children Roger and Lisa both work with me, they were on the way to work, at 9 o’clock, many of this – hundred people with us on their way to work, and as it turns out had the plane struck 15 minutes later our firm would have been decimated. As it is we lost four of our people, two of whom I had hired just a few weeks prior to that and there are six children among them and it was a horrendous, horrendous experience.
