In December, Dublin woman Angela O’Reilly, 34, who lost her husband, in the World Trade Center attack moved back to Ireland from her previous home in Farmingdale, Long Island. Her husband of twelve years, Police Officer Vincent Danz, driving his Emergency Service Police Truck from the Bronx, reached the World Trade Center soon after the planes hit on September 11 and was last seen entering the Towers. Angela, together with her three young daughters, Winifred, 8, Emily, 5, and Abigail, 8 months, has moved back with her parents where Angela hopes “it will probably be more real.” ♦
