Friends thought flight attendants Jennifer and Kenneth Lewis were such a good match that they collectively referred to them as "Kennifer." Though the husband and wife team from Culpepper, Va. often worked separate flights, they were together on American Airlines Flight 77, planning to vacation when they reached Los Angeles.
Jennifer, 38, loved a good practical joke, shoes, horseback riding and her horse, which she named Poet. Ken, 49, a former ski instructor, was into hiking, climbing, golfing and was always by his wife's side during a horse show. They were introduced by another flight attendant at a party.
It was "a match made in heaven," said longtime friend Brent Payne, who owned the horse farm where Jennifer took riding lessons. "They were such a devoted couple. And as close as they were, I don't know how one could have dealt being without the other one," said Payne. "The families drew comfort in the fact that they were together (on the flights), protecting each other."
