The Victims of Flight 800
By Fred Bruning
EVERYONE WHO DIED aboard TWA Flight 800 has a story and each story an equal share of heartache -- a stab wound of sorrow that will pain family and freinds long after officials solve the case and ocean rhythms scrub the crash site clean.
To follow are sketches of many of those who died when TWA Flight 800 lost its wings -- when hopes and good wishes were brutally dashed in the velvety, summer sky over the Atlantic, when the impossible happened, as, too often, it does.
A Town Remembers Its Kids
By Ken Mortisugu and Ellen Yan
IN THE SMALL TOWN of Montoursville, Pa., residents remembered their classmates with words like intellectual, popular, quiet and bright. They recalled how some of them liked to bowl, sing, run track. They were leaders, and they were friends. And they were teenagers, and chaperones, who shared a love of the French language and culture. Their high school, and their friends, remembered them this way:
Jessica Aikey, 17, was going into her senior year and hoped to study medicine. She was a member of the French Club and the History club, an active volunteer in the community and held a part-time job. The school described her as an excellent student.
Dan Baszczewski, 17, had gotten all A's since first grade. He won a scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania and teetered between focusing on engineering and psychology. The oldest of three children, Dan was the focus of his tight-knit family this summer because of his graduation and plans for his trip to France. He ran track and played soccer, and was a member of the History, Spanish and Stewardship Clubs at school.

Monica Cox, 16, who grew up in York, Pa., had moved to Montoursville at the beginning of the last school year. Monica, who was going into 11th grade, was an excellent French and Spanish language student who school officials said was concerned with social and environmental issues. She liked to write poetry and was an accomplished softball player and bowler. Monica was a member of the French Club.
Deborah Dickey, a chaperone, was the high school French teacher taking her students for a cultural trip to Paris. Her husband, Douglas Dickey, accompanied her.
Douglas Dickey was a regional sales manager for Alling and Cory, a packaging company based in Harrisburg, Pa. The couple leaves two children, 5 and 7.
Carol Fry, a chaperone, was a nurse and a friend of another chaperone, Judy Rupert. She served on the Montoursville Area School Board from 1979 to 1987.
Claire Gallagher, 15, was going into her sophomore year. She was a member of the French Club, Art Club and the Key Club and participated in student government.
Julia Grimm, 15, was going into her sophomore year and participated in concert choir, the French Club and student government. Julia loved to write poetry and was an altar server at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church.
Rance Hettler, 18, graduated this year and planned to major in criminal justice and law enforcement at Northeastern University. He played basketball, baseball and football and was a district champion in track. He was vice president of the History Club, a member of the French Club, Key Club, the Prom Committee and Students Against Drunk Driving. He attended Community Baptist Church. He also was an acolyte at his family's church, Faith United Methodist Church.
Amanda Karschner, 17, was a school leader, according to district officials. She had been chosen as co-captain of the girls basektball team for the 1996-97 season. She was a district high jump champion and also played soccer. Amanda was a member of the French Club, Key Club, Students Against Drunk Driving and chairwoman of the Prom Committee.
Jody Loudenslager, 17, graduated this year planned to attend Delaware Valley College to study animal science. She was a cross-country runner, a long-distance runner in track, swam and played basketball. She joined many clubs, including French, History, Stewardship, Key, Monogram, Athletic Training and the Prom Committee.
Cheryl Nibert, 16, picked raspberries to earn money for the trip. She was going into her junior year and played basketball, ran track and was a member of the French Club and the History Club. Cheryl was active in her church and liked to ski. The school described her as outgoing, upbeat and friendly.
Kim Rogers, 17, was going into her senior year and hoped to attend the University of Pittsburgh. She played soccer, ran track and was a member of the French Club, National Honor Society, the Monogram Club, the Art Club and the History Club. She worked part time. An only child, she loved her dog Butters and called it her sister.

She was a cheerleader, played tennis and powderpuff football, and ran track.

Wendy, who was going into her senior year, also wrote poetry and was a member of Concert Choir and Chorus. Teachers said she was energetic, witty and an excellent student who was willing to speak out on issues. She was a member of the National Honor Society, the French Club and the Prom Committee.
Judy Rupert, a longtime secretary in the school guidance office and a 1961 graduate, was making her first overseas trip. She talked all year about the upcoming trip and bought so many new clothes for it thatcolleagues had joked that she would have to buy another suitcase. Rupert worked for the district for 34 years. She was very loyal and dedicated, said Michael Knott, the supervisor of curriculum and instruction. She loved being around the kids.
Larissa Uzupis, 15, would tell her friends to Suck it up, when they complained about what they thought was horrid school food. Way before 10th grade, though, Larissa knew what she wanted - the top. She once told her little sister and family that she was going to be the first female president, said her aunt Karen Jez. She was a bright, energetic, strong person. She knew what she wanted and she was going to get it. Larissa wanted to follow the footsteps of her accountant father and had already gotten her name on several colleges' lists. The teenager would shoot questions about France at her aunt, who'd been there. The main thing was how she's going to get her hair done, what kind of plug she needed, Jez recalled.
Eleanor Wolfson, a chaperone, was the mother of Wendy, one of the students on the trip.
Mother and Daughter Sharing a Foreign Trip
By Jordan Rau
Constance Coiner and Ana Duarte-Coiner, 12, shared more than a plane flight to Paris. Passionate and hardworking, both mother and daughter rarely slowed down - until they headed abroad, a trip that was Ana's first to France and a reward for Coiner's recent successes.
Coiner, 48, had won tenure last year in the English department at the State University of New York at Binghamton, and had submitted a new book of essays to her publisher.
Coiner was committed to literature, and her courses drew raves. Former student Renee Brochusaid: "She had a way of letting people know what we did was important, that we should find whatever it was we were passionate about it and dedicate our lives to it."
Like her mother, Ana threw herself into activity with a rare dedication. Though only 12 years old, she was a reporter for a children's Saturday morning news show on WBNG, the CBS-affiliated television station in Binghamton.
She would have been in the eighth-grade this fall, and had been promoted to the varsity tennis team. And she played the piano. "The gifted daughter came from a gifted mother," said Al Vof, a fellow English professor.
Birthday Gift of Travel Turns Tragic for Couple
By Dexter Chambers
For Ruth Brooks' 80th birthday, her husband, Edwin, promised a trip to anywhere she wanted to go.
Her choice: the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.
But health concerns forced them to scrap that plan at the last minute.
The Edgartown, Mass., couple left for Paris instead, taking the ill-fated TWA Flight 800. And their neighbors and former colleagues remembered them warmly.
Edwin Brooks, 82, began his career at Binney & Smith, art suppliers and makers of Crayola Crayons, as a member of the international sales division. He retired from Taco Industries in the late 1970s.
Ruth Brooks spent 36 years as a volunteer at Union Settlement Association in East Harlem providing services to those less fortunate. She was the chairman of the board from 1968 to 1970 and from 1979 to 1980.
Warm and energetic, she single-handedly steered the organization through the political unrest of the the 1960s, according to director of development Sally Yarmolinsky. The community agency provides services for the elderly, women and children.
"Ruth was extremely involved in fund-raising and developing new programs," Yarmolinsky said.
"Even . . . when they relocated to Martha's Vineyard, Ruth was still in constant contact with this organization she so loved. She will be dearly missed," she said.
First Trip to France, Last Journey Together
By Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson
For Jay and Patty Anderson, the European vacation was to be the first without the children in years. The trip was a gift to Patty, who had recently turned 41, a friend said.
"It was the first time he [Jay] and his wife could get away in a while," said Bill Maxson, of Allmerica Financial in St. Louis, where Jay Anderson, 49, was the managing partner.
It was their first trip to France.
The Andersons left their 17-year-old twin daughters, Meredith and Emily, and son, Jared, 16, with relatives, friends said. The couple planned to meet in Paris with friends arriving on a flight from Atlanta and then travel on to Rome, Maxson said.
Jay Anderson was a graduate of the University of Missouri at Columbia and a member of the Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity, where he was nicknamed Butch, said a friend who asked not to be identified.
The Andersons were avid golfers, and she swam daily for exercise. The couple lived in Warson Woods, a suburb of St. Louis. They were members of Mary, Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Church in Webster Groves, Mo.
"I think that everyone in the office had a great deal of love for both Jay and Patty. We'll miss them tremendously," Maxson said.
Former Flight Attendant Was a Victims' Advocate
By Geoffrey Mohan and Ching-Ching Ni
The death of Pamela S. Lychner on TWA Flight 800, along with her two daughters, Shannon, 10, and Katie, 8, dealt a heavy blow to crime-victim advocates.
The founder of Justice for All victims' lobbying group, Lychner was a whole football team wrapped into one, said Andrew M. Kahan, director of the Houston Mayor's Crime Victim's Office.
The former TWA flight attendant was en route to Paris with her daughters for a brief vacation, while her husband, Joseph, stayed behind at their home near Houston.
"Shannon's goal was to become an astronaut," said Lychner, who held portraits of his children outside the Ramada Inn at Kennedy Airport. "She was born on the day the [Space Shuttle] Challenger was destroyed . . . To have her die in this way, in so similar a fashion, it's horrific."
Lychner, 37, became committed to pushing for longer prison terms and the use of capital punishment after she was attacked by a twice-convicted sex offender in 1990, Kahan said. She founded Justice for All in 1993.
The group just took off, said Kahan. "In my years in criminal justice, I've never seen anything like it. It was because of her expertise and charisma."
Justice for All has since grown to more than 3,500 members, with chapters in Reno, Philadelphia, Dallas and Houston.
Besides her husband, Lychner is survived by her parents and two sisters.
A Trip to France Was a Gift to a Graduate
By Ellen Yan and Barbara Chai
Ohio French teacher Sandra Hazelton had, in several senses, fallen in love with the City of Light. It was there that she married her husband, Robert, a director of network and data services for Eaton Corp. in Cleveland. Since then, she had flown many times to France as a chaperone for her Orange High School students.
But this time, the trip was a graduation present to her daughter, Katrina Rose, who had received an associate of arts degree from Lakeland Community College in Kirtland.
Rose, a college secretary from Ohio, also was no stranger to Paris. She had lived there for a year 10 years ago with her mother.
"Rose was the type who saw the glass as half full, shrugging off setbacks in hopes of a better tomorrow.
She was bubbly, vivacious, full of life, with the expectations of the young, always great expectations, probably not a dark day in her life," said Donald Stiggers, who first met Rose when she was a little girl during a Christmas party given by mutual family friends. Even then, he said, the child was optimistic. "For instance, once when she didn't get a Barbie doll she wanted from Santa, she shrugged it off and said `Maybe next year.' "
Rose worked in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. Her mother, a resident of Beachwood, taught at Orange High School after getting her bachelor's degree in French from Middlebury College in Vermont.
Their Anniversary Trip Was Going to Be Special
By Stuart Vincent
Eric and Virginia Holst of Manorville were to have celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary tomorrow while they were in France attending his brother's wedding.
Her mother, Luz Mari Pelaez, of Center Moriches, had driven the couple to Kennedy Airport for the flight. "I went to give her a big hug and she said, `Mommy, mommy, I'll see you next week,'" Pelaez said.
Eric Holst, 32, was a dentist in East Moriches and catered in part to children. In his office are cards from elementary schoolchildren who called him Dr. Eric.
The son of John and Joan Holst of St. James, he was a 1986 graduate of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, School of Dental Medicine, and was partners with Dr. Stuart Novins.
Virginia Holst, 31, was her mother's partner in International Distribution Networks, direct distributors for Nu Skin and Interior Design Nutritionals products. She attended Suffolk Community College and the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising in Manhattan. She started her business five years ago and worked out of her home.
Her father, Helmer, died when she was a child.
Virginia also had battled thyroid cancer. She got so strong, so full of energy and life, it was amazing, Pelaez said. She fought that war. And she won.
Eric was on the board of Hampton Vistas Condominiums, where the couple lived. A lovely young couple. We will miss them, said neighbor Jean Squeri.
The couple met at a Hamptons dance club and dated for six years before they were married. "
Two Families Mourned in Alabama Hometown
By Barbara Chai
They had planned it for a year, a trip that would take their two families to Paris for shopping, for hiking and for practicing the French language they were learning.
The tragedy that followed was, according to one resident of their hometown of Stevenson, Ala., the worst thing that happened in this town.
Michael and Barbara Scott and their 13-year-old son, Joseph, the teenager's best friend, Thomas Weatherby, and Thomas' mom, Brenda Privette, were all aboard TWA Flight 800.
Michael Scott, 44, who liked to travel and experience the outdoors, had physics and engineering degrees and worked at the Arnold Engineering Development Center, an Air Force facility near Tullahoma, Tenn. Barbara Scott, 39, was a registered nurse who worked the night shift at the town's North Jackson Hospital.
Privette, 46, had worked for a nearby fabrics company.
The Scotts were leaders of the Boy Scout group based at their church, Cumberland Presbyterian, and Privette chaperoned some troop events.
According to Michael Scott's cousin, Jane Tipton, the father and son often hiked together, and had traveled to Peru and throughout the western United States.
A prayer vigil for the five victims was held Thursday night at the North Jackson High School, bringing out more than 300 people. One of them was Bennie Bookout, who said the whole town felt like victims.
Michael Scott's mother, Clara Scott, had lost her whole family, Bookout said. 3Her life was wrapped up in theirs, and now she's alone.
They had a very busy, meaningful life. In a society where so many kids are on their own, it's tragic to lose a family of that caliber.
A Look at the Other Victims
Matthew Alexander, Florence, S.C.
Matthew Alexander, a 20-year-old French major at Wake Forest University, was so excited about his plans to spend the fall studying in Dijon, France, that he left early for senior-year classes, which were to begin in late August. Alexander, who lived in Florence, S.C., and was described by friends as an accomplished student, had spent the last year living at the University's French House. Alexander, who would have been a senior next year, also was a four-year ROTC scholarship student, said Kevin Cox, a University spokesman. "The entire university was heartbroken at the news," said Cox. "We grieve with the family."
Lamar and Ashton Allen, Marietta, Ga.
Lamar Allen, 41, and his 16-year-old son, Ashton Allen, both of Marietta, Ga., were on their way to join relatives in Paris. The family was flying standby aboard TWA Airlines. Allen's wife, Ann, along with 13-year-old son, Cameron, and 14-year-old daughter, Amberly, had arrived in Paris hours prior to TWA Flight 800. The family trip was a vacation to escape the Olympics, which began yesterday. Allen ran a business called Lincoln Investments out of his home on Paper Mill Road in a suburban East Cobb County.
Michelle Becker, St. Petersburg, Fla.
Becker, 19, was on the flight, accompanying Olsen to France. She attended Georgia State University in Atlanta, studying marketing and business as a junior. Whenever she visited her parents, Walter and Aurelie, she liked to fish. "She was real outgoing and extremely nice, neighbor," Wes Linkovich said. "This is truly a loss."
Myriam Bellazoug, Manhattan
Myriam Bellazoug, 30, an accomplished young architect, was headed to Paris to supervise the construction of a residence she had helped design. Matt Bremer, a colleague at the architectural firm Peter Marino and Associates in Manhattan, remembered the 30-year-old Bellazoug as sophisticated, yet sweet and approachable. "She had a list of great attributes," said Bremer, who has known Bellazoug since they were undergraduates in the prestigious architecture program at Rice University in Houston. Bremer said Bellazoug always had a passion for architecture. "You could tell she really loved the field," he said. "She would work an hour or two past everybody else at the firm. But she wasn't a martyr about it." Bellazoug, a Houston native, graduated in 1988 from Rice University and went on to the Yale Graduate School of Architecture, where she earned her master's degree in 1991. Officials at both Rice and Yale said they have received many inquiries from former classmates who are interested in doing a memorial tribute to Bellazoug. A lecture series or a scholarship fund in her name is being considered.
Arthur and Joan Benjamin, Philadelphia
Arthur and Joan Benjamin were off to Europe to visit their two daughters, Rachel and Sara, in France and Italy. Their son Caleb, a Philadelphia resident, was going to go with them, but decided to catchup with them at a later date, said neighbor Patrice Ryan. Arthur Benjamin was a teacher at a Philadelphia school for the gifted, and his wife was a semi-retired architect, Ryan said. Last Saturday, Ryan and her husband Frank had dinner with the Benjamins, and the two men played guitar while their wives teased them. "They left us on a very high note," Mrs. Ryan said. "I'm in denial at the moment. We've lost two very good friends."
Luc Bossuyt, Trumbull, Conn.
Luc Bossuyt, 52, the director of international technology in the medicines division for Bristol-Myers Squibb, was traveling on business. He left behind his two adult sons, Stephen, 27, of El Paso, Calif., and Francis, 26, who is studying rain forests in Peru. His wife, Myriam, lived in Trumbull, Conn. Alison Olivieri, a family friend, said Bossuyt traveled often, throughout the world.
Rosemary Braman-Mosberg, Hoboken, N.J.
TWA flight attendant Rosemary Braman-Mosberg was a last-minute addition to the flight, her brother, Charles Braman Jr., said from his home in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights. Braman-Mosberg, 47, was a resident of Hoboken, N.J., where she lived with her husband of two years, Stewart Mosberg. She wasn't scheduled, her brother said. "She picked up the shift at the last minute . . . She loved being a stewardess." Her brother said she had been a TWA employee for more than 20 years. He said his 2-year-old son had been crazy about her.
Michel Breistroff, Roubaix, France
When Michel Breistroff, a native of Roubaix, France, played on the Harvard University hockey team, he liked to joke about the Gallic features that made him appear older, according to a university statement. The day I first met this year's freshman hockey players, they thought I was one of the coaches, he is quoted as saying in a 1994 university press release. "He was very proud of being at Harvard and very proud of playing hockey at Harvard," university hockey coach Ronn Tomassoni said. . . . We who were fortunate to be part of his life at Harvard will miss him greatly. Our prayers and thoughts are with Michel and his family." Michael Jackman, a spokesman with Harvard's athletic department, said Breistroff, 25, will be remembered for his charm and maturity, his intelligence and his witty sense of humor.
Jack, Janet and Caitlin O'Hara, Irvington, N.Y.
Jack O'Hara, 39, an executive producer of ABC Sports for 14 years, was off to cover his last assignment for the network: the finale of the Tour de France bicycle race. O'Hara, who hated flying, was accompanied by his wife, Janet, 39, and daughter, Caitlin, 14. They leave behind twin 12-year-old sons, Matthew and Brian, who stayed in upstate Irvington in the care of Jack's parents. "He and Janet had planned to take this trip for a while. He was combining it as business and a vacation," said Larry Kamm, a longtime friend and former ABC colleague, who spoke with O'Hara by phone Wednesday.
Richard Campbell, Ridgefield, Conn.
Richard Campbell, of Ridgefield, Conn., was a flight engineer on TWA Flight 800, and leaves behind a wife, Marjorie, who is a schoolteacher, and two sons, Scott and Todd, of Ridgefield, and a sister, Ann Fleming of Tucson, Ariz.. A former Air Force pilot, Campbell was hired by TWA in 1966 at TWA and had logged 18,527 flight hours. He had attended Ohio State University.
Paula Carven, Bel Air, Md.
Flight attendant Paula Carven was on Flight 800 with her 9-year-old son, Jay. This was a special trip for her son, said Jean Gregonis, who lives across the street from the Bel Air home Carven shared with her son; mother, Ann Carven, and brother, Sean Carven. "I was shocked," said Gregonis. She had a lot of friends here. "It's hard to believe, but it will sink in eventually. It's been a very trying day."
Ludovic Chanson, Garancieres, France
Ludovic Chaunce, an 12-year-old French exchange student, was headed home on Flight 800. At the gate, a flight attendant had to separate him from the embrace of his American friend, Luke Sargent, 14, of Mendham, N.J. The two had been friends in the past two years of international exchanges. "We were going to send mail back and forth," Capozza said. "He shared any secret with me. We were like brothers. He was a real good friend."
Jacques and Connie Charbonnier, Northport, L.I.
Jacques and Connie Charbonnier of Northport were both flight attendants for TWA and took the New York-to-Paris Flight 800 as often as five times a month. They met 21 years ago on a flight. Jacques, 65, managed flight attendants -- among them, his 49-year-old wife, who was an accomplished painter of French landscapes.
Marcel Dadi, France
Last week, Marcel Dadi was in Nashville to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame's Walkway of Stars.
On Wednesday, he was climbing the stairway to heaven. Dadi, 46, of France, is credited with popularizing American country music - particularly the Chet Atkins-style guitar music - while playing throughout Europe. Dadi gave more than 1,000 concerts and sold more than 2 million records during a career that began in 1972. He had such a successful first album that Atkins flew to France especially to meet him. Marcel was one of my dearest friends, Atkins said in a prepared statement yesterday. He has helped me greatly over the past 20 years I have known him. This has been a terrific blow to me and hundreds of guitar players all over the world. My prayers and thoughts are with his family in France. The Country Music Hall of Fame, referring to Dadi as the European Mister Guitar, released a statement saying: If today thousands of European people know Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Doc Watson, Jerry Reed, it is thanks to him.
Judith Connelly Delouvrier, Manhattan
Judith Connelly Delouvrier was a patron of the arts, devoted to an array of volunteer causes from East Harlem to the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where she lived. Delouvrier, 48, was headed back to Paris Wednesday night to join her two children, who were staying with French relatives. "She was a very fine and accomplished woman. A wonderful daughter, sister, wife and mother," said Victoria Flaville, vice president of the Connelly Foundation, a private family foundation that gives grants in human services, the arts and education primarily in the Philadelphia area. Flaville said Delouvrier made all of her achievements seem effortless. "She was a writer and an artist and was particularly interested in fostering cultural programs for children." In New York, Delouvrier had worked at Sotheby's, Revlon and Marcella Borgehese cosmetics. She was an adviser for an exchange program for French and American students and had been a volunteer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She had also founded a program called Art Tours for Children, based in New Jersey. She is survived by her husband, Phillippe Delouvrier, her two children, her mother, two sisters and two brothers. She was also the first cousin of Maureen Connelly, a public relations and political consultant in New York City who was the press secretary for former Mayor Edward Koch.
Warren Dodge, Ashland, Mass.
Warren Dodge, 49, was a flight attendant at TWA for more than 20 years. But at home he also was remembered as the man who trimmed the lilac bushes for his mom. Another neighbor remembered Dodge as a schoolboy, walking through the neighborhood on his way to school, more than 40 years ago. A lifelong resident of Ashland, Dodge lived with and cared for his mother. He recently became engaged to a fellow flight attendant, according to Bonnie Cain, a neighbor. They were to be married in the next few months, she said. Although Dodge's career took him to far-off locales, including France and Greece, he always found time to help his neighbors. "He would shovel snow from your driveway, he was just willing to help people," said Cain, a neighbor of Dodge for more than 20 years.
Larkyn Dwyer, New River, Ariz.
It was with some hesitation that Ron and Ann Dwyer let their daughter, Larkyn, 11, fly to Paris to visit a pen-pal. "They very reluctantly let her go, it was so far away from home," said Ray Downey, Ron Larkin's business partner in Phoenix. "They're going through this stage of guilt for letting her go." The family, including her 15-year-old brother, Kyle, had recently moved to New River, Ariz., and returned to New York for an upstate vacation last week. Downey said Larkyn, a willowy pre-teen with shoulder-length blond hair, was a fixture in her father's office, where she talked often of her love of horses. "She was a typical teenager, tall, skinny," Downey said. "She was an `in-between' . . . not yet a young lady and not still a child."
Daryl Edwards, Jersey City, N.J.
Daryl Edwards of Jersey City, 41, always had an exotic answer to neighbors' queries about where he was heading. On Wednesday afternoon, it was Paris. "A lot of times I'd see him leaving and I'd ask where he was going, and he'd say, London, Spain, Puerto Rico," said Charles Calnen, a neighbor in Edwards' Jersey City neighborhood. "He did work a lot." A friendly, witty and cultured man, Edwards ran a catering business in addition to working for TWA as a service supervisor, and was frequently away for stretches of days at a time, said Calnen. "You knew he went to school when he talked," said Calnen.
Namik and Clara Ersoz and nephew David Babb, Pittsburgh and Volant, Pa.
Namik and Clara Ersoz were chaperoning their nephew, 13-year-old David Babb, on Flight 800, en route to joining more family members in Paris. David, a straight-A student, was not only to be reunited with his mother and sister in Paris but with an exchange student, Julien Valette, whom the Babbs had hosted for a year in their Volant home 50 miles north of Pittsburgh. "It was an opportunity of a lifetime for him to have a trip like that at his age," Alfred Babb said of his son. "He just got on the wrong plane." David is survived by his father; his mother, Sherri, his two sisters, Michelle and Katie, and his brother, Brandon. The Ersoz' met while training to be anesthesiologists at the University of Toronto in Canada and later worked in separate Pittsburgh hospitals. Clara, 59 and better known as C.J., was an expert on health care quality management and continued to consult and lecture nationally after retiring from hospital work. "The medical profession will feel a serious loss," said Dr. William McMillam, who considered Ersoz his mentor. After retirement from his anesthesiology practice, Namik took up the accordion, welding and skeet shooting. Clara and Namik are survived by their family, including a son, Nathaniel, and daughter, Meryem.
Deirdre Feeney, New Hyde Park
Deirdre Feeney, 17, of New Hyde Park, was looking forward to a a full day of sightseeing in Paris before traveling on with her mother, Vera, to Roscommon, Ireland, where mother and daughter were going to spend time with family members. "She had been talking about the trip for weeks. She couldn't wait," her father, John, said yesterday, explaining that his daughter was an avid soccer player who was trying to convince her mother that they needed to check out French soccer stadiums during their brief Parisian layover. He described his daughter as quiet and thoughtful, someone who was known for doing sweet things for the friends and family in her life. "It was the little details that she paid attention to," Feeney said. "She promised to bring back my favorite foods, Irish sausages and Cadbury chocolates. She was just a good girl." Deirdre, or De De as her friends called her, had just graduated from Kellenberg, a Catholic High School in Uniondale, where she had been on the honor roll for four years and played for the varsity soccer team. She had received a four-year scholarship to the College of Mount St. Vincent in the Bronx, where she was going to begin studying nursing, her father said. The trip to Paris was a graduation present from her parents, he said.
Vera Feeney, New Hyde Park
For Vera Feeney, her family was her life. The 53-year-old part-time housecleaner and her 17-year-old daughter, Deirdre, both of New Hyde Park, had hoped to board a Tuesday flight to Paris but were instead bumped to Flight 800. France was a stopover and mini-vacation for the mother and daughter before arrival to their ultimate destination: Roscommon, Ireland, where they had planned to visit Vera's 80-year-old mother for a two-to-three-week holiday. The Feeneys had been making the annual trip to Ireland since Deirdre was small enough to be carried in her mother's arms, Vera's husband, John, recalled yesterday. This trip to Ireland was particularly important because Vera Feeney wanted Deirdre to to spend time with her 80-year-old mother, Margaret, and father, James. Feeney came to this country more than 20 years ago from Ireland. The family's last few days before the trip had been filled with marathon shopping sessions at Roosevelt Field Mall for clothing and souvenirs for family members in Ireland, John Feeney said. "They had tried to get on the Tuesday flight but were bumped to TWA's flight 800." When Vera Feeney wasn't doting on her husband, she was doting on her daughter, the apple of her eye, John Feeney recalled, explaining that she would spend her days bringing Deirdre back and forth to soccer practice and games. "They couldn't wait for the trip, discussing at their last dinner together how long the flight would take and what sights the two were planning to see before taking a connecting flight to Dublin and a two-hour train ride to Roscommon. They were each other's best friends," John Feeney recalled.
Daniel Gabor, Pleasanton, Calif.
Daniel Gabor, 27, who lived in Pleasanton, Calif., and was a two-time All-American track star, had packed light to visit his British girlfriend, Claire, whom he met when he ran track at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. He had his passport around his neck, duct-taped Nike sneakers on his feet, and carried only a backpack onto a flight from Tulsa to New York, said Artie Huff, a friend. "He said, `I've got all I need, I've got a raincoat.'" Gabor, who stopped running competitively in 1993, was finishing his master's degree in geology, former coach John McDonnell said. His father died when Gabor was a child, but he remained close to his mother, Ann, and sister, Cathy, who often came from his hometown of Pleasanton, Calif., to watch his meets, McDonnell said. Friends characterized him as a free spirit known for daredevil skateboarding, free-hand rock-climbing and a fondness for travel. "When he got on the plane," Huff said, "we told him how lucky he was to be going to the city of love and that we'll see you real soon."
Steven Graham, Napa, Calif.
Steven Graham, 38, had been looking forward to his trip of a lifetime, said a coworker. He was to meet his parents, who had traveled to France ahead of him, said Sam Medina, co-owner of Ameritel, where Graham worked. From there, Graham planned to meet a friend in London for a two-week European jaunt. "We got voice mail messages from him fifteen minutes before he got on the plane, reminding coworkers about projects," Medina said. An avid bowler and San Francisco Giants fan, Graham had a very dry, quirky sense of humor. "We're all still in shock here, Medina said. We were wondering what we were going to do without him [for three weeks]."
Charles H. Gray III, Memphis, Tenn.
Charles H. Gray III, 47, president of the Midland Financial Group, an insurance company in Memphis, became a victim to the crash en route to a meeting in Paris. The trip was purely business, said his son, Charles Gray IV, in Memphis. Gray's trip was part of negotiations to merge the Midland Financial Group with the Danielson Holding Co. in Manhattan. "Hank was a trusted and valued friend," said Midland CEO Joseph McLeary. "All of us at Midland will miss him."
Donna Griffith, Brooklyn
Donna Griffith, of Brooklyn, had worked hard to build a new life for herself. Griffith had just graduated from Audrey Cohen College in Manhattan and had registered to attend graduate school at New York University in the fall. And at 37, she had been eagerly anticipating her first trip to Europe, friends said yesterday. "She was a close friend and a sober person who had a wonderful influence on other people," said Cathy O'Connor, who said she met Griffith in an Alcoholics Anonymous group.
Beverly and Tracy Anne Hammer, Long Beach, L.I.
Beverly Hammer, 59, had just passed her stockbroker's exam July 8. She and her daughter, Tracy Anne, 29, were heading to France, where Tracy Anne was to deliver a paper on veterinary science. "They shared a restless intellect and voracious reading appetite," said husband Richard Hammer of Long Beach. Tracy Anne had a lifelong love of horses and was to receive a double doctorate in veterinary medicine and microbiology in May from Michigan State University. An advertising sales consultant, Richard Hammer considered joining his wife and daughter, but the two were keen on traveling strictly as a pair.
Dr. Ghassan and Nina Haurani, Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.
The news that Dr. Ghassan Haurani, 51, and his wife, Nina, 54, were aboard the TWA flight to Paris, stunned the communities where they lived and worked. Suzanne Schut, director of public relations for St. Joseph Mercy Hospitals in Macomb County, Mich., said Dr. Haurani will be sorely missed by his patients. "He was amazing because he made everyone feel special." "He was so accurate at doing things that you felt that you were in good hands. He probably saved my life," said Pat Ackerman, a 10-year patient of the Michigan vascular surgeon.
Schut said the couple, who had four children between the ages of 16 and 25, were traveling to Paris to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Nina was his office manager. "They were always together," Schut said.
Susan Hill, Portland, Ore.
Susan Hill, 45, a police detective who was the first woman on the Portland Bureau of Police hostage-negotiating team, was planning a five-week vacation when she boarded Flight 800 for Paris. "She was really up [for the vacation]," said Mary Jane Gleeson, a police secretary who spoke to Hill during her layover at Kennedy Airport shortly before the crash, remembering how excited her friend was about her trip. Hill, who was appointed to the bureau in 1974, is credited with being involved with the investigation of more than 70 homicides. Gleeson said Hill asked her and a few others to go with her to Paris, but ended up traveling alone. Gleeson described Hill as outgoing and a very talented seamstress who enjoyed playing racquetball.
David Hogan, Paris
David Hogan, 47, a Virginia-born composer and graduate of the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, was heading to his Paris home. Hogan earned bachelor's and master's degrees in voice from Peabody during the 1970s, and in 1972 helped found the Walden School, a summer school for young composers, in Dublin, N.H. "The thing about him was that he was a fabulous musician and extremely talented composer," said Lynn Hebden, Hogan's friend and former teacher at Johns Hopkins. He was a lovely person." Hebden said Hogan just finished composing music for a French film scheduled to be released in September. Hogan has a 13-year-old daughter who lives in California.
James Hull, Costa Rica
Former Long Island resident James Hull, 45, was just about finished building his dream house in Costa Rica before boarding Flight 800. The 18-year veteran TWA flight attendant planned to move into his new house later this month with his wife, Liessy, and two daughters, Michelle, 6, and Cindy, 8. Hull, off-duty on the flight to Paris, was flying to Europe to work a return flight to Atlanta. "He raved about his new house," said his stepbrother, David Remmey. "He couldn't wait to finish it." Hull, born and raised in Ivyland, Pa., moved to Costa Rica from Long Island three years ago and spoke seven languages so he could communicate with his international customers. "He was so good at his job," said Margaret Hull, his aunt. "He wanted to make everyone he met feel special. He was special. "
James Hurd III, Glen Burnie, Md.
James (Jamie) Hurd III, 29, couldn't wait to rendezvous with his girlfriend in Paris. Taking a brief vacation from his job as manager of his family's auto repair shop in Glen Burnie, Md., Hurd boarded Flight 800 in hopes of meeting up with her and her parents to sightsee and celebrate her finishing studies there. "He was a good catch -- his girlfriend was lucky," said Annie Benham, a neighbor who had known Hurd since he was a child. "He offered so much to so many people -- such a genuine and gentle person." Hurd graduated from Towson University with a degree in business administration and took care of all the finances of the family business. Outside the office, he coached children in basketball, baseball and football.
Courtney Johns, Clarkston, Mich.
Courtney Johns, of Clarkston, Mich., was a recent graduate of Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. She planned to attend Villanova University in the fall. Johns was a tennis player on the school team and an excellent honors student, Sister Lenore, the principal of the school, said.
Arlene Johnson, Grand Junction, Colo.
It seemed no small town in any corner of the nation was immune to the disaster. Arlene Johnson, 60, a flight attendant aboard TWA Flight 800, left behind her twin sister, Marlene, who lived with her in a restored Victorian the pair ran as a bed-and-breakfast in Grand Junction. "It's been terribly hard on Marlene," said neighbor Thelma Brodine. "They lived together all their lives. They were very close. We heard about it on the local TV, and a neighbor of mine said Arlene was on that flight. Grand Junction is not a big place. This is really unusual. Of the number of people on the plane, for one of them to be our neighbor is really surprising. The town's buzzing. You don't expect something like this to happen to someone from your town, let alone your neighborhood."
Jed Johnson, New York, N.Y.
Friends recalled designer and architect Jed Johnson, 48, as softspoken, charming, with a keen artistic sensibility. Johnson, who headed an architectural firm in Manhattan, Jed Johnson & Associates, designed a home for pop artist Andy Warhol, whom he counted as a close friend, said Stuart Pivar, who had known Johnson for more than two decades. "It was a stroke of genius," Pivar said of Warhol's home. Jed built period rooms of such refinement and perfection. The level of quality in that house had no equal. Jed influenced Andy to appreciate fine old things. It probably influenced Andy towards the classical theme of art.
Margot Krikhan, Brookfield, Conn.
Margot Krikhan of Brookfield, Conn., was a native of Germany but had been in the United States at least since the 1970s, where she worked at the German Consulate in New York City, according to the Springer Foreign News Service, which supplies news to German publications. According to Christine Matthai of the news service's Manhattan office, Krikhan was 51 years old and once worked in the passport office of the German Consulate. Quoting information from the news service's sources, Matthai said Krikhan was headed to Paris with a friend and from there planned to go to Germany.
Andrew Krukar, Bridgewater, Conn.
Andrew Krukar, a 40-year-old engineer for The Torrington Co. in Connecticut, wasn't just headed to Paris on business for his company; he'd planned a marriage proposal to his girlfriend. He was en route to our Paris office. This was a business trip for Krukar, the divorced father of two teenagers, said Dwight Keeney, spokesman for the company, which manufactures bearings and automotive components. But Krukar's girlfriend, Julie Stuart, told the Hartford Courant, "I knew he was going to ask while he was in Paris." She said she was scheduled to meet Krukar in Paris later in the week. Krukar had asked Stuart's father for her hand in marriage, the newspaper reported. "All he could talk about was the wedding," Krukar's 13-year-old son, Kyle, told the Courant. Keeney said Krukar had been with the company 22 years. He was engineering manager for camshafts, which are components of automotive engines. Krukar worked out of the company's Watertown, Conn., offices, said Keeney. He was known for his dedication, energy, good humor and spirit, Keeney said of Krukar. He was a key member of the engineering staff.
Barbara Kwan and Lonnie Ingenhuett, Scottsdale, Ariz.
Barbara Kwan, 40, and Lonnie Ingenhuett, 43, a Scottsdale couple, were off-duty TWA flight attendants who boarded the flight for Paris. A neighbor, Danon Judevine, said the couple were frequently absent from the neighborhood because of their hectic travel schedule. Judevine said he heard about the crash on the night it happened, but only learned that Kwan had been on the flight when a television station in the area called him. "It was quite a shock," said Judevine, who said news of their deaths spread through the neighborhood quickly. Kwan had a son, Alec, who is 7 years old, who neighbors said was staying with family.
Jane Labys, Morgantown, W.Va.
Jane Labys cared about her neighbors and her community. The real estate agent and mother of two grown children spoke five languages, sang, painted and took an interest in development plans for her city. She was on TWA Flight 800 to meet her husband, Walter, a professor at West Virginia University who has been teaching and doing research in Switzerland, according to friend and colleague, Phyllis Marshall, who said Labys was to stop in Paris on the way to Switzerland. Labys was, friends say, the kind of woman who looked after an elderly neighbor, a woman to whom others were drawn because of her friendly manner. All I know is Jane was a very good friend to me, said Lona Bell Barker, a neighbor of Labys. Barker said Labys had sold her home four years ago and helped her find a new place. Labys left behind two children in their late 20s, said Kim Dickerson, Labys' next-door neighbor and good friend for about 10 years. I just cried when I found out, Dickerson said. I talked to her a couple hours before she left. She was my friend as long as I lived here. She's a really community oriented person and she was really active in her church. Marshall, who worked at the Dorsey Kiger Real Estate firm with Labys, said Labys was a multifaceted person. She had many interests. She was truly a citizen of the world. She said Labys was president of the local historical society and was on the planning committee involved with charting a course for Morgantown in the next century.
Ray Lang, North Massapequa
Ray Lang always bid for flights overseas. Paris. Cairo. Germany. And with 20 years as a TWA flight attendant, the 51-year-old North Massapequa man often got his wish. He brought back sweets for his mother, Mildred, gifts for his close-knit family and tales of adventures, including when he took over for a sick driver and steered a tour bus through the rural outskirts of Cairo. "He was always telling stories," said Ray's only brother, Ted, 54. "If there were fifteen people in a room, he was the center of attention." Friends and family said the outgoing Farmingdale High School graduate carefully tended to his flowers and hungered for books on American history. Then there was his appetite for crossword puzzles and Jeopardy. But Lang's passion was traveling and flying. It began decades ago after a three-month backpacking trip through Europe. "His job was everything to him," said Wendy Lang, Ray Lang's niece and goddaughter, who is also a TWA flight attendant. "He wouldn't have been doing anything else."
Elaine Loffredo, Glastonbury, Conn.
A flight attendant since 1968, Elaine Loffredo, 49, was a caring and devoted person who tended the garden in front of her house as well as the needs of others, neighbors in her Glastonbury, Conn., neighborhood said. "She loved God, family and her job, in that order," said her husband, Robert Loffredo. "She loved flowers, birds and people." She had a generous streak, opting one year to forego a vacation to use the time to bring medical supplies to Mother Teresa in Calcutta, Loffredo said. "She was absolutely the most caring woman in the world," he said in a telephone interview. "Anybody she ever touched came away with a good feeling."
Sandra Meade, Camano Island, Wash.
When Sandra Meade, 42, was at home on Camano Island, the TWA flight attendant would relax by tending to her rose and vegetable gardens and doting on her large Persian cat, PF. Meade, who lived alone, has a sister in Minnesota, said a neighbor, who did not know the sister's name.
Grace Melotin, Flushing, N.Y.
Grace Melotin, 48, of the Beechurst section of Flushing, worked for TWA. She lived in Florida with her father, who died two months ago, and stayed at her mother's house whenever she was in New York, said neighbor Marga Pielli, adding that she believes Grace was a supervisor for TWA. Her mother wanted to sell the house and move to Florida so she could be closer to her daughter, Pielli said. "This is terrible," she was an only child.
Gideon Miller, Sarasota, Fla.
Gideon Miller, 57, an off-duty TWA pilot from Sarasota, Fla., wasn't supposed to be on the Flight 800, a neighbor said. Miller changed his schedule to take Flight 800 so he could return in time for a family gathering that had been scheduled for this weekend, said Florence Brown, 85, who lives across the street from the Millers. He was going to fly a 747 jumbo jet back to Kennedy Airport, Brown said. I saw him about three days ago. I went to the mailbox and he was coming out and he hollered: `How are you doing Mrs. Brown?1 like he always did, Brown said. Miller and his wife, Betty, have been members of the Bahia Vista Mennonite Church for the past 10 years. Brown described Miller as a neighbor who checked on her as if she were his own mother. When Brown's mailbox was damaged, Miller installed another. One time Brown called Miller when she thought a prowler was snooping around her house. He came by with flashlights and checked around the house, Brown said. His wife and a grown son and daughter were in New York.
Kyle and Amy Miller, Andreas, Pa.
Kyle and Amy Miller were married five years and were proof that opposites attract. Kyle, 30, enjoyed woodworking and fixing up old houses. He worked in his family's hardware store as well as their plumbing and electrical business, and was the family clown, said his brother, Todd Miller. Amy Miller, 29, was the secretary for the hardware store, and will be remembered as the exact opposite of him -- very professional, very meticulous, he said. The couple were off to see a friend Amy met as a college exchange student in France.
Robert Miller, Tenafly, N.J.
Robert Miller, the Tenafly borough supervisor, and his wife, high school teacher Elizabeth Miller, planned to tour France's wine country. The Millers have a daughter, Kristina, whose age was not known.
Gadi Notes, Manhattan
Gadi Notes, 29, a senior associate for Donaldson, Lufkin, & Jenrette's investment-banking division, was traveling to Paris on business. In a joint statement, chairman and chief executive John Chalsty and president and chief operating officer Joe L. Roby said: "We have lost a talented colleague and a great friend -- our whole firm is saddened. We extend our deepest sympathies to Gadi's parents, his brother and sister and many friends. We share with them the pain and sorrow of this sudden and tragic loss." Born in Israel, Notes served in that country's Air Force from 1985 through 1988. He then attended Tel Aviv University and graduated in 1991 with honors. Deciding that he wanted a career in the financial world, he attended Columbia Business School, where he received an MBA in 1993. He lived on the Upper East Side. Gadi was a highly talented young investment banker, Roby said. "He was mature for his years, patient and kind to those around him and well-liked by his colleagues. He had exceptionally high personal and professional standards and consistently produced first-rate results. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult period."
Rebecca Olsen, Macon, Ga.
Rebecca Olsen was on her way to France for a friend's wedding and to do some backpacking with a college pal, Michelle Baker, said Bobby George, a friend of the Olsen family. Olsen, 20, of Macon, Ga., had just completed her sophomore year at the University of Georgia in Athens and had a 4.0 grade-point average. She was a graduate of Macon High School, where she was captain of the cheerleading squad and French club member. She had been overseas before, George said. "We're distraught over Becky and all the other families, too," said George, whose daughter had been friends with Olsen. "It's a tragedy for the whole country."
Judy Penzer, Pittsburgh
Judy Penzer, 49, of Pittsburgh, grew up in Lawrence and was well known for her massive murals of sports figures, which graced large buildings in her adopted hometown as well as some in Brooklyn, the Bronx and other places across the country, said her brother, Richard Penzer, 38, of Lawrence. Penzer was a Lawrence High School graduate and had attended several art schools around the world, said Penzer. She had planned to drive around France with a friend, Jill Watson of Pittsburgh, an architect who had won a Mellon Foundation grant. Watson also died on the flight. "She could do any style of mural; she was a highly trained artist, off to Paris to see the world," said Penzer. "I'm living with it. She enjoyed life," he added. "But my mother is in shock." Her mother, Anita Penzer, 75, lives in Manhattan and has an apartment in Atlantic Beach.
Marion Percy, Tuckahoe, N.Y.
For Marion Percy, a retiree, it was to have been a spontaneous jaunt to Paris. Neighbors now know she didn't make it. "I talked to her almost every day," said Noel Degaetano, a neighbor who had known Percy for 10 years. "She would always tell me when she was going away." But Degaetano did not learn Percy had planned to travel or that she was on the plane until late Thursday night. As her neighbor, Degaetano rented a parking space on his property in Westchester County to Percy. He also valued her friendship and her support of his art business. "She would always bring friends to my gallery," Degaetano said, describing her as "very intelligent, an astute lady, very spiritual, really supportive and really helpful."
Rico Puhlmann, Manhattan
Rico Puhlmann, 62, who lived in Manhattan and also had a home in the Hamptons, was an internationally known fashion photographer who shot more than 125 covers for Harper's Bazaar. He was on his way to Paris on assignment for Italian publishing company Rizzoli Periodici. Born in Berlin in 1934, Puhlmann was known as a child movie star before he moved to New York City in the early 1970s. He worked for a variety of fashion magazines, including Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Glamour and German Vogue. During the 1970s and 1980s, Puhlmann was the top photographer for Harper's Bazaar, Michele Mazzola, the magazine's former special projects editor, said. Richard Sinnott, a fashion editor for Harper's Bazaar, recalled doing a shoot with Puhlmann and Gabrielle Reece in 115-degree temperatures in the deserts outside of Las Vegas. "We draped wet towels all over our heads," Sinnott said. "I did more than fifty shots with him, and I always looked forward to working with him." He did maybe half the covers in any given year, Mazzola said. "He was knowledgeable about everything, from flowers to fashion to photography. He was a real Renaissance man." "He was probably one of the top photographers of the time," said Sinnott. Puhlmann is survived by two brothers, Klaus and Heinz Puhlmann, both of Berlin.
Yon Rojany, Studio City, Calif.
Yon Rojany was an aspiring pro basketball player on his way to Rome for a tryout with an Italian team and originally was scheduled to be on another flight, his mother said. Rojany, 19, of Studio City, Calif., was supposed to be on Flight 840 to Rome, but was switched when it was canceled. "It was strange because, when I saw the break-in on the program with the news, they said it was a flight bound for Paris," said his mother, Lisa Michaelson. "I don't know if it was a mother's instinct or what, but I knew he was on that plane." Rojany worked in a restaurant in Brentwood, Calif., where he met Larry Brown, the coach of the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, who arranged a tryout with the Italian team.
Steven Snyder, Stratford, Conn.
Even with 30 years' experience and more than 17,000 flight hours on jumbo jets, TWA captain Steven Snyder, 57, of Stratford, Conn., still got a kick out of flying his single-engine Cessna. Friends and neighbors describe Snyder, who was divorced and lived alone at Oronoque Village, as a quiet, handsome gentleman who liked to golf and had worked hard to refurbish his Cessna, a job he had completed nearly a year and a half ago.
Scott and Marit Rhoads, Bellevue, Wash.
Her usual route took Marit Rhoads into one of the most security-conscious airports in the world -- Israel's Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. But with her schoolteacher husband, Scott, freed from his teaching duties by a summer vacation, Rhoads, 48, a TWA flight attendant from Bellevue, Wash., decided to fly with him to Paris, where they had vacationed before. Scott Rhoads had time off from teaching high school football and wrestling, said a neighbor, Norma Custard, and so Marit Rhoads swapped her normal Tel Aviv flight schedule with one to Paris, where they had been before. The trip was a treat they gave themselves after working hard to renovate their garden, Custard said.
Mike Schuldt, Safety Harbor, Fla.
Mike Schuldt, 51, of Safety Harbor, Fla., was working his favorite New York-to-Paris route as a TWA flight attendant, said his wife, Judy. He loved Paris and flew that route as often as he could, she said. He loved to travel and was one of the first male flight attendants. Schuldt, who spent his free time as a leather artist, had planned to return to Paris next week with his wife.
Anna Maria Shorter, Los Angeles and Dalila Lucien
Anna Maria Shorter, of Los Angeles, was on her way to Rome to see her husband, jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter, who was on a European tour. She was traveling with her niece, Dalila Lucien, who she was taking on the trip as a gift for Dalila's high school graduation. "Anna Maria Shorter loved children," said her friend and neighbor Valerie Bass, who last saw Shorter on Saturday, when she came over to swim in Bass' pool with Bass' granddaughter. Shorter had spent the last few years entertaining and decorating their home. "The whole home was Anna. She was a very classy person, with very elegant taste," Bass said. "I'm going to miss her so much." Bass said that when she initially heard that Shorter was on the flight, she didn't believe it because Shorter was not scheduled to go to Paris. It turned out that her plane had been changed at the last minute. "I said, `I don't think so, she's supposed to going to Rome.' I just couldn't believe it," Bass said. Shorter, who was in her 40s, was beautiful and youthful, always full of life, Bass said. "She had dark hair and dark eyes with a twinkle in them," Bass said. "When you'd walk into a room she'd stand out. She was the center of attention. She just had that aura about her."
Eugene, Etta, Candace and Jamie Silverman, Los Angeles
Eugene Silverman, 54, a prominent Los Angeles tax attorney, was on his way to a short tour of Italy with his wife, Etta, 53, and their two daughters, Candace, 22, and Jamie, 15, before going on to the bat mitzvah of a close friend's daughter in Jerusalem. They were switched to Flight 800 when a flight to Rome was canceled. The enormity of that entire family perishing is something none of his friends are able to absorb, Jerry Rabow, a law partner, said. The Talmudic view is that to destroy one life is to destroy an infinite progression of descendants that come from that person - to see it happen this way is just horrific.
William Story, Newport Beach, Calif.
"Honey, I'm calling to tell you my connection did not work." Those were the last words insurance company president William Story left to his wife, Judy, on their telephone answering machine. Story, 41, of Newport Beach, Calif., had booked a United flight out of Washington with three other executives: Kirk Rhein Jr., 42, of Darien, Conn.; Charles Gray, 47, of Memphis, and investment banker Gadi Notes of New York. They were headed for meetings in Paris and London to raise capital for a corporate merger. But their limousine driver got lost on the way to a connecting flight in Hartford, so the four switched to TWA Flight 800. Later that evening, Judy Story got a long-distance telephone call from Rhein's wife, Martha, who had been out jogging and heard sketchy radio reports of a crash. She and I were on the phone together all night, Story said. William Story and his wife of five years, both previously widowed, were still overjoyed to have found each other, and the machine message was typical of those he left every day, Judy Story said. "Do not worry -- I'm still coming back on the Concorde my regular way on Saturday to see you," he told her. "I love you very much and I love the girls," referring to her two daughters, whom he had adopted. "Please give them my best."
Melinda Torche, Irvine, Calif.
Flight attendant Melinda Torche's family thought she couldn't have been on Flight 800 because she had called her autistic son in Mission Viejo, Calif., from St. Louis Wednesday. The next day, according to the Orange County Register, they learned she had been calling while she was working aboard the New York-to-Paris flight that crashed.Torche, of Irvine, Calif., was divorced for 15 years from Ralph Minnis. But they remained in close touch because of their handicapped son, and he flew out to her home after learning of the crash. Neighbors and co-workers described her as an upbeat, conscientious and kind woman who'd leave a food dish out on her front porch for stray cats. "I remember her smile," one colleague said. "It just kind of beamed out at you."
Rick Verhaeghe, Goldsboro, N.C.
The night before he died doing one of the things he loved - flying - Rick Verhaeghe was engaged in another of his pastimes - community activism. He and his wife, Barbara Joe Verhaeghe, had manned a concession stand at a church league baseball game. Verhaeghe, 48, a Vietnam veteran turned TWA pilot, was off-duty and heading to Paris for an assignment there when Flight 800 went down. Verhaeghe, a past president of a local homeowners' association, was described as an avid family man who often smiled and waved at neighbors on his way to a tennis court with one of his two sons. Verhaeghe, who was a Reserve lieutenant colonel with the 916th Air Refueling Wing at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, served in Desert Storm.
Ruben Windmiller, New Rochelle, N.Y.
Ruben Windmiller, 66, lived in New Rochelle. He was the father of two grown sons, including David Windmiller of Melville, and had two grandchildren. He was traveling to France on a trip that combined business and pleasure. Windmiller was traveling with his girlfriend, whose name was unavailable, to Paris for a week's vacation. Neighbors said he was a successful businessman and frequent traveler who had recently been on a cruise to Alaska. He was an avid boater, owner of a 48-foot Danish-built Nauticat sailboat that he had sailed to Cape Cod, Atlantic City and Bermuda. "He wasn't scared of anything," neighbor Joan Lorusso said. "He got stuck in the middle of the ocean on his way to Bermuda, and it didn't phase him at all."
Bonnie Wolters Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and her mother, Betty Ruth Martin, Belleville, Ill.
Brooklyn State Supreme Court Justice Mike Pesce spent most of yesterday morning at Kennedy Airport, waiting for more information on the woman who was to be his bride, Bonnie Wolters, 44, and her mother, Betty. In the meantime, grieving friends kept vigil at the couple's Carroll Gardens home. "Bonnie was a wonderful person," said Paul Bader, a friend of both Pesce and Wolters. "She was a great friend to everyone who knew her." But concern now seemed to shift toward the judge. "It's been very difficult for him, said Bader, just very difficult." At Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corp., where Wolters worked as a bond trader, colleague Bill English echoed the same sentiments, while others were too grief-stricken to talk.
Judith Yee, Manhattan
Judith Yee was a quiet but sociable and easygoing neighbor of Bella Abzug at a Fifth Avenue apartment building just off Washington Square in Manhattan. A seven-year resident of the building, she was in her late 50s and had no known family members in the area, a doorman in her building said. But Yee was well known in the dog-walk area of Washington Square Park, where she went regularly with Max, her brown terrier, and joined with other dog-loving friends. she also was fond of having small groups of friends up to her apartment for quiet dinners. She left with Max for the airport at about 4 p.m. on the day of the crash, but neighbors only learned yesterday that she had been on Flight 800.
