Anthony Luparello- 62, worked in the accounting department at ABN Industries @ WTC. You can tell from the profile that I read that he loved his wife. He called her daily during his lunch break and when the buses brought him home later than "normal" , he'd be upset because he felt it was his home time and he shouldn't be sitting around in a stupid bus. #911 #project2996

His wife said that "He could see the humor in anything. As one friend put it: He looked at life and got the joke." #911 #project2996

September 11th was her birthday and her family tried to talk her out of going ot work that day, but she wouldn't because she really liked her job. She was a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Anne Rose Ransom 45, worked in the travel department of American Express @ WTC. A high school friend said that "She was a subtle adventuress". When her husband's talk of getting a sailboat manifested into an actual boat, she decided it was time to face her fears and she signed up for a sailing class for women. While it didn't make her a 'real' sailor, it did give her sea legs and demonstrates how she faced down her fears in life. #911 #project2996
