In June of 1998 my Father passed. I was left to clean out his personal things in his prescious little beach cottage at Plum Island, MA. The process was overwhelmingly emotional at the time and I ran out to the surf and looked to the heavens sobbing uncontrolably..Finally, as I composed myself, excaiming to the heavens and my Dad.."I'll take care of Mom and the cottage as I promised..If only there was some way for you to send a sign that you were alright!!" Precisely at that moment, a Double Rainbow formed to my right and left along the shore line running North and South..Joining right over my head. I was 58 years at the time and had never seen a Double Rainbow before. I ran up the beach and people were pointing it's your Dad!!! Never morned for Dad after that Day. The following morning the local Newburyport News had a picture of the Double Rainbow over P.I. with a captian, that the photographer had been taking pics of P.I. for 28 years and had never seen a Double Rainbow..Then came 9/11. The president had asked for a Nat'l Day of Prayer. I attended a local church and among the prayers were a few parting words for my Dad..Stating that lot's of people were coming his way..Please pay special attention to Ruth and Juliana McCourt..Tell'm a few stories, show'm around and maybe a cool drink. Be sure to tell them that I will be a good friend to David and I will pray and burn a candle for them for the rest of my days..The next day, Saturday, I attended the Memorial Celebration of Life in Flanders, CT. Among the speakers was Ruth's Mother. Mrs. Clifford, opened her eloguent presentation with the following words.."I knew Ruth and Juliana were with us this morning when I drew the curtains overlooking the Sound, there was a Double Rainbow stretching across the sky. I am 76 years old and I had never seen a Double Rainbow before in my life!" From that moment forward our families did in fact meet. And a votive candle will be burning somewhere to celebrate the lives of Ruth and Juliana from that moment..Thanks Dad, Mrs. Clifford and Dave for having me.

I met Ruth on a plane ride from Ireland to Boston on May 30, 2000. I was returning home from studying in Ireland for a semester. I was experiencing some mixed emotions about leaving - I missed home, but at the same time, I had grown to love Ireland, and I was sad about leaving that new home. Anyway, Ruth was sitting next to me. Neither one of us spoke to one another for the first half of the trip, but by the second half, we began chatting. I quickly learned that we had a lot in common. She had just been returning from Ireland - she was there planning and then attending one of her bothers' 40th Birthdays. She told me all about how she planned the party, where it was, etc. She was so excited and full of life. We shared our saddness about leaving Ireland. She actually made me feel a lot better. She was very maternal, very caring. We exchanged information because we were both from CT, and she thought perhaps her niece would want to meet me when she came for a visit to the States. When we got off the plane, Ruth walked with me to the baggage claim area and stayed with me until I found my parents. I will never forget her. When the planes crashed on September 11th, I was in my room watching the news and I saw the BBC news report about the terrible event. I looked up, and there was Ruth's picture. I knew it was the same woman. I grabbed my wallet, where I kept her business card, and sure enough, it was her. I was filled with a terrible saddness and my room actually got colder than it had been. I will probably never forget that moment, but I choose to remember the warmth I felt from her while we chatted on the plane, both of us with tears in our eyes. All I can say is that I pray for her family. And I think of Ruth often. May God bless her family, and may Juliana, Ruth and Paige be blessed in heaven.

I never knew Ruth or Julianna, but when I think of 9/11 it is their names I remember. I'll never forget that horrific day or the lovely family lost. My thoughts and prayers are always with their families.

I went to school with ruth in cork she was in my sisters class and we both went to ruth's birthday parties in her aunties house and ruth would often come to our house. My memory of ruth was her beautifull red hair and she was always smiling and happy she was never still!!! My mom used to say she would be on the stage some day she was so full of life!! It was only when I saw ruth's photo on the television that I realised that she was on one of the planes that went into the trade centre I could not believe it she was such a beautifull person and her daughter was such a beautifull little girl. My heart goes out to both families who lost two beautifull people. Ruth was the only daughter -sister in her family and it must leave a terrible void. I am so sorry for you all. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May Ruth and little Miss J rest in peace.
