A little more information:

Beverly Eckert, Bereaved of 9/11, Dies in Buffalo Plane Crash

February 13, 2009 by Mark Whittington

The bitterest of all ironies placed Beverly Eckert on Continental Flight 3407, the commuter plane that crashed near Buffalo, New York. Beverly Eckert lost her husband Sean Rooney at the World Trade Center on that Second Day on Infamy, 9/11.

Beverley Eckert's husband Sean worked on the 98th floor of the South Tower. On the faithful day, he called Beverley to tell her, as it turned out one last time, that he loved her. In the midst of the telephone conversation, there was a loud explosion, then nothing.

9/11 and the death of her husband thrust Beverly Eckert into unexpected and unwanted role of activist. She and others of the bereaved of 9/11 campaigned to force Congress to pass reforms of American intelligence gathering. Beverly Eckert co-chaired the 9/11 Family Steering Committee, which pushed to create the 9/11 Commission and, once the Commission had convened and made its recommendations, to make those recommendations law.

At one point, Beverly Eckert had vowed to return to some kind of regular life, like Cincinnatus after the wars, a citizen activist. But there was no going back. The work surrounding the 9/11 reforms having been done, Beverly Eckert devoted her energies to Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps poor people to build homes.

Even so, Beverly Eckert could never get entirely away from 9/11. A week before she died, Beverly Eckert was at the White House with others of the bereaved of 9/11 and of the USS Cole sailors, discussing with President Obama's plans for dealing with captured terrorists in the wake of the decision to close Gitmo.

Sean Rooney died at the hands of fanatic terrorists. Beverly Eckert died in a plane crash likely caused by more conventional causes, mechanical failure or pilot error or perhaps both. But the fact that they both died untimely seven and a half years apart by plane crash is both ironic and bitter.

Beverly Eckert was a woman who was able to take her grief, of losing a husband, her high school sweet heart, and turn it into something powerful. The reforms that she and the others of the bereaved of 9/11 caused to pass likely helped to ensure that no other Americans have died, so far, from terrorist action on American soil. If gave Sean Rooney's death some meaning and made sure that Beverly Eckert's life mattered.

Not a bad legacy to leave behind, that.
