S-T: A young writer suggests...

I remember these, Kristen:

Thomas Burke

died Sept. 11 in the World Trade Center, at 38.
Managing director and partner at Cantor Fitzgerald, Mr. Burke worked on the 104th floor of Tower 1. He is survived by his wife, Julia (Tweddle) '85; four sons, John, Brian, Thomas and George; his mother and father, Alexander J. Jr. '53; five brothers, including Brian J., M.D., '79 and Matthew M. '87; a sister, Nancy Burke Salter '83; and 19 nephews and nieces.
The profile of Mr. Burke that appeared in the Portraits of Grief section of the Oct. 31 edition of The New York Times noted his commitment to family: "Tom Burke's mother always had a happy birthday. Tom Burke's family never wondered where Daddy was. Tom Burke's friends never lay sick, alone."
A Mass of the Resurrection for Mr. Burke was celebrated on Sept. 28 at John Jay Homestead, Katonah, N.Y.
A trust fund has been established in Mr. Burke's memory: "The Thomas Burke Family Trust" c/o Ropes & Gray Att: Valerie Thibeau, One International Place, Boston, MA 02110

Edward A. "Ted" Brennan III

died Sept. 11 in the World Trade Center, at 37.

Mr. Brennan worked more than 11 years for Cantor Fitzgerald Securities on the 105th floor of the north tower, serving as vice president, institutional broker and salesman. A sports enthusiast, he had been a founder and captain of the Holy Cross Squash Club and a member of the Manasquam River Golf Club. He had also been a member of the Grammercy Park Republican Club of New York City. Mr. Brennan is survived by his parents; three sisters; his grandmother; two uncles; two nephews; a niece; and his girlfriend, Meghan Daly.
A memorial service for Mr. Brennan was held on Sept. 22 at St. Mark's Church, Sea Girt, N.J.
Contributions may be made in Mr. Brennan's memory to: The New York City Fire Department, Portsmouth Abbey School, The College of the Holy Cross, or the Social Concerns Committee of St. Mark's Church, Sea Girt

(I've carried these around for a few years, thought I'd pass them along. Copied from something I don't remember, probably an alumni letter. Schoolmates.)
