PART II.One of our own perished on 9-11-2001.
As you probably know, one of the victims at the Twin Towers, World Trade Center, on September 11th, 2001,was my uncle,Francisco Rodriguez-Gorgas (Nick-name:"Paco", born in Corozal,Puerto Rico in 1935. He was visiting the towers at the time - he was an Engineer/architect and designer.. a terrible loss.
His remains have not been found - still missing, however, the City of New York provided our family a symbolic Urn with Sand and ashes from the towers. We really miss him! Peter
