FLIGHT 587 – November 12, 2001 – TWENTY-TWO YEARS LATER

Since taking office in 2021, I have prioritized attending most ceremonies that honor our colleagues in one form or another.

Early this morning, Nathanael and I arrived at the memorial site, and as we set up for our dedication, an exquisite woman approached us and asked us some questions. Her name is Patricia Mills, sister of our beloved Michele Mills. In our brief conversation, Ms. Mills shared that she was there with her brother, whom she later introduced us to. She proceeded to share some of the very intimate moments that led up to that horrific day, and some personal concerns on how time changes how the lost are remembered. With her permission to share our photos, I want to dedicate this base brief to Patricia Mills and all the loved ones who lost someone on Flight 587. Please know that we share your grief and will forever continue to keep their memories in our hearts.

Patricia, thank you for allowing Nathanael and me into your heart and, in a way, helping us be reminded of how important our role is in the lives of our members and their families.

In Solidarity,
