Air Force Child

Nina Bell was every inch a fighter pilot's daughter — slender, athletic and looking even taller than her 5 feet, 8 inches. Born in the Netherlands, the first stop in a nomadic Air Force childhood, she grew up confident, smart, "the It girl," as a friend once put it. A bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Colorado at Boulder led her to become a manager of information systems and, most recently, into project management.

But to her friends and family, there was also the side that was not all business. Ms. Bell's notebook had a bumper sticker that read, "Mean People Suck." With her brother, Lowell Bell, 40, she kept up a private banter, sometimes based on the dim Canadian duo, the Mackenzie brothers, from the 1970's television show, "Second City TV." "Hey, hoser," she would call him.

This September, Ms. Bell, 39, had settled in Manhattan, in a new apartment on the Upper East Side and in a new job as a project manager with Marsh & McLennan. In an e-mail message to her friend Lorraine Davis on Monday, Sept. 10, at 2 p.m., Ms. Bell wrote, "I am so very happy."

Not sure what to say?

You are in our thoughts daily. We miss you so much that it is hard to describe. Isaac entered the university of Hawaii this year. Look over him Dad & mom

On my visit to the 9/11 memorial, Nina Patice Bell was the first name I saw. I turned to my friend and said "do you see what I see?" Why is this so crazy? My last name is Bell and from then on i have wanted to know more about the person who shared my last name. My heart goes out to the family and prayers for healing.

Hi Nina. It's the 17th anniversary of that horrible day. I'm in San Francisco this year. As always I'm thinking of you. I continue to see signs and symbols I believe are from you, and I always recognize them and say hello. You are a big part of my spiritual development, I thank you so much for that. My prayers are with your family and to all who love you. You are never forgotten and are always in our hearts. Love, Danny

While Show on Sunday morning, there was a segment on a new 'Sports' section of the Memorial Museum. As the cam era panned the donated items, I saw a letter form a Letterman's jacket - "M" with a fleetfooted pin and I know this belongs to you. Great memories came flooding back to our High School days running Track and playing Volleyball at Mitchell. Love and miss you Nina - Always

Seems like yesterday. Scar inside us. A wise 95 yr old women said to me "Jill turn your scars into stars". Nina ~ you are on of the brightest !! You made this world brighter and still do. Run many a mile for you. Thank-you! xo

Remembering you Nina at this time of year and always. Keeping the Bell family in thought and prayer.


Always remembering Nina at this time - she is an Angel among us.

Prayers for Debi and all the Bell Family on this 16th anniversary.
