To the friends and families of our co-workers of UAL flight 93 & 175.
I offer you my prayers and condolences for the tragic loss of your precious loved ones. I pray that the Lord will comfort you and sustain you in your time of sorrow.
Sheila Smith Marshall, LASSW
Sharing in your sorrow of the loss of your co-workers/friends. My deepest sympathy is with you.
In Loving Memory to the crew of Flight 93: Captain Jason Dahl, F/O Leroy Homer, Lorraine Bay, Sandra Bradshaw, Wanda Green, CeeCee Lyles & Deborah Welsh
Tonight I sit here, numb as can be...
Missing my fellow crew members - They're lives taken on flight 93...
The crew did their jobs above and beyond what we're taught - The passengers were brave, their heroics won't be forgot.
It wasn't my turn, that's what they all say -- But if I kept my trip then it would have been me that day.
How do I go on, with a smile on my face?
How can I be okay, when someone else took my place?
Sadly & fondly
Kim Stroka, EWRSW
Dear AFA Members at United,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the crews lost in these tragedies.
I am a US Airways flight attendant based in Philadelphia. If someone at United needs shelter in Philadelphia during this crisis please don't hesitate to call me at (215) 779-5964.
My thoughts cannot explain how much I hurt over this incident. My world as I knew it is completely "ROCKED" I pray for all those who lost someone. God Bless our Brave Flying Partners
Heaven became a much more beautiful place the day my flying partners showed up at those pearly gates. God, please enjoy them even more than we did here at United...and may they rest in your love and your peace.
You are all deeply loved and missed.
I pray for the families of our fallen colleagues. I pray that they will be healed by the Love that Christ has for them. I pray for us who are left behind to carry on, that we will remember the teachings of Christ and practice tolerance, restraint, compassion, and respect for each other.
I did not catch her name, but I have to say that the UAL flight attendant who lost her son in the PA. crash was one of the most inspiring souls I have ever come across. In the grips of what must surely be the saddest time of her life, she managed to make others feel proud to be Americans, and made me even prouder to be a United airlines flight attendant. I send my prayers and my gratitude to her for her selfless dignity.
Debra Waltman, JFKSW
Words cannot begin to express the devastation that these mindless acts have caused. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost their lives and also to their families. A sad time for us all.

...sometimes thoughts can touch where words can't reach.
Our prayers are with all our co-workers and their families and those others who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We must stand tall and proud as Americans now more than ever. Fly your flag high and proud. we live in the greatest country in the world, be proud and be willing and ready to fight for the freedom we all enjoy. God bless America!
|I flew with
Captain Jason Dahl from LHR to JFK exactly one week before this
I remember him as being a funny and genuine man, who couldn't help but joke about my bruised cheek (I had had a wisdom tooth extracted the previous week). I walked away that day thinking there should be more people out there with his bright outlook on life. I also remember the crew commenting to each other during the flight what a nice flight deck we had that day.
Words can't express what went through me when I saw the images on TV, nor what I felt when I heard people I had worked with, were involved and had been killed.
Like all of us, I will always carry this with me. Never forget. But hopefully move on from all this terror.
I would like to express my sincerest sympathy to all family and friends of those who perished.
Mireille Breedijk, LHRSW
To All those who had to endure the pain and suffering caused by the traumatic events of this past week, my thoughts are with you, your family and your loved ones. You have a purpose and meaning to all the lives you so lovingly touch everyday. Have strength and love for yourself and others and do not let another day go by without realizing that life is so precious and enjoyable because you chose to share in the good and bad times with me. All of my respect and love to you.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of my flying partners that lost their lives so needlessly at the hands of terrorists. You are in my thoughts daily - and rest assured, these braves souls will not be forgotten - even as this country gets back on it's feet.
Each time I get on a plane - I will be thinking of each and every flying partner that lost their lives.
Their deaths must not be in vain - Action is called for so that this never
Bless you all.
Kellie Slater, SEASW
I have cried tears of fear and now I cry tears of anger. I shall not let these a--holes keep me from a job that I love. In memory of all those that died I shall fly again. Defiantly, and proudly, I shall fly again.

|I would like
to say my prayers and thoughts are with all the victims who were
involved in Tuesdays tragic and senseless events. My heart goes out to
all the flight attendants and pilots who had to go right back to work
when our nations airways opened back up, luckily myself, I have a few
days off to try and grasp reality before returning to work. I would
like to add that in the news I saw where there was another off duty
flight attendant onboard UA flt. #175, Jesus Sanchez, is this true
that he was a flight attendant for us, and if so lets not forget him
in honoring him in the line of duty all though he was traveling as a
passenger. Lets all try to show each other how much we truly
appreciate and care, and give one another support in this difficult
Your fellow flying partner and friend.
Shaun Simmons, ORDSW
Though your lives have been taken, for whatever reason will always be unknown....No one can ever take always the "wings" that you so proudly called your own.
From here on I will always fly with the memory of all of you so close to my heart.
Thomas F. Apgar, JFKSW

day. God bless us all.

And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
Wanda Green was a beautiful and dedicated Newark based Flight Attendant. When I would come to 'briefing' and see her there......I knew the trip would be great....full or light load. She was United's finest.
My deepest sympathy to her family and loved ones.
To the families and love ones of the fallen crews, our thoughts and prayers are with you. They are gone but not forgotten by the tens of thousands of their coworkers. God bless and comfort you.
United Airlines Employee
Dear friends and co-workers,
May all of our families be forever touched by this. We must never forget our crew members who gave their lives for our entire country. We rest in the peace that our God has carried them into His kingdom. My heart holds hope that we will all stay United and encourage one another.
Debbie Ash, SEASW
To all the families and friends of our United "heroes", as well as my fellow New Yorkers, my heart grieves with yours. If thoughts could ease your sorrow and pain, KNOW that there are thousands of us sending you love, sympathy and support. We will hold you close in our thoughts and prayers, along with our precious co-workers.
Susan Manzo, LAXSW
What words can express the horror and immense sadness we're all feeling right now? My heart goes out to those we've lost, to their loved ones and to my flying partners with whom I share the mourning process and the intimidating task of rebuilding our confidence and sense of security in our workplace.
I hope that we lean on one another for strength during this unspeakably dark and seemingly bleak time. It is inconceivable to imagine what our friends and colleagues on these flights experienced. They remain forever heroes. We must keep them close in our hearts and thoughts. We face some tough days ahead- but I have met so many amazing people on the line that I have no doubt that we can find solace in our unique community and become ever stronger as individuals and as a group.
Please take care of yourselves and one another.
With much love,
Dena Kilgore, IADSW
From My Family to Yours...Our thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you. Our uniforms are worn proudly in representing your lost loved ones and the unity of all of our families. May God bless all of us.
