Dallas-Ft. Worth Remembers 9/11

My wife missed flight 93.

Cedar Hill TX

My wife missed flight 93.

I just wanted to put a shout out to my wife, the “Unsinkable Dana Fuzz” who narrowly missed stepping onto flight 93. She was scheduled to fly back to SFO on Tuesday (9/11/01) when the fares are cheaper. She was in NJ for her mother’s funeral that Sunday and couldn’t bear waiting until Tuesday so she went on stand-by. The ticking agents told her it was a slim chance she would get onto a Monday flight because they were traditionally over booked with business travel. She waited in the airport all day and was finally allowed onto the last flight out from Newark to SFO.

Dana and I lived together in the bay area until we got married in September 2003. We moved back to the DFW area and six months later she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is now cancer free. Near miss number two for her. Life is a journey, not a destination.

Thanks, Richard
