The essay at the link below is by Kara McDermott, who is the daughter of Matthew McDermott who worked with Michael. She was 3 years old on 9/11/2001. 

The McDermott family is a very special part of our family. I know it's not what we usually post but this is such a moving essay, I'd like to have it on the website to share with others.

There are also two essays from Matthew McDermott, Kara's brother, who was born 7 months after 9/11/2001. It is a touching tribute to his father, Matt, and our Michael after whom he is named.
