NEW YORK (Reuters) - Beverly Eckert, the widow of a September 11 victim and an advocate for survivors, died in the commuter plane crash near Buffalo, New York, relatives said.
Eckert met President Barack Obama in Washington last Friday along with other relatives of those killed in the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.
"She was an inspiration to me and to so many others, and I pray that her family finds peace and comfort in the hard days ahead," Obama said on Friday.
Eckert, 57, became a prominent member of Voices of September 11, a group providing services for those affected by the attacks and promoting policy reforms on prevention, preparedness and responses to terrorism.
Her husband, Sean Rooney, died in the World Trade Center in New York, destroyed after al Qaeda hijackers seized jetliners and crashed them into the two towers in 2001.

i like to point out from time to time, that there is no such thing as coincidence. NONE. Its synchronistic. the way our world REALLY is, there is no coincidence. So, this leads to why the plane crashed, because the 9/11 widow was on it, or was she on it because the plane was to crash? Also, what about the bigger picture with the crash. Is this the one in Buffalo? i'll look and see if there are any odd synchros. But i will state again, there is no such thing as coincidence.
