Ten years after her death on Sept. 11, 2001, Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas still inspires people. That's not an accident. Her husband, Jack, insists that her legacy be a living one.

Lauren -- along with 39 other passengers and the flight crew -- died when United Flight 93, having been hijacked by terrorists, went down in a field near Shanksville, Pa. It was the flight that fought back against the attackers, preventing the plane from reaching its target in Washington, D.C. The heroism of those passengers -- and their battle cry, "Let's Roll"-- lives on as part of the tragic story of 9/11.

For Jack, the sudden death of his wife carried additional grief. Lauren, 38, was pregnant, and Jack, suddenly without his family, was thrust into a world of pain and loneliness, engulfed by a dark depression. It was Lauren's spirit, in many ways, that gave him the strength he needed to fight his way out of it.

Thank you for playing "Amazing Grace" by Toby Mac, 10th ave North, and Mandessa, when they played it in your K-Love location a year ago, It brought tears to my eyes, angels in disquise. My recollection of 9-11 was the shock of the moment, and the slowness of the day, as one disaster led to another, the everyday heros that amazed us all, the sadness that filled the nation, the wanting to connect with family and never let them go, the prayers for the families, and souls, and even the prayers for the perpertrators. Thank you for your unconditional love from your station. An admirer.. Kathy

I have been trying to find the tribute to flight 93 song that reads off names of the victims in alphabetical order and then has comments about how they fought back in between the names.  Is there a place online I can find that? Thank you, LeaAnn
