Hit "play" above to watch the film


From the moment Richard Pecorella met Karen Juday, he knew she was the one. They were inseparable until September 11, 2001, the day that two planes attacked the World Trade Center towers. Richard remembers watching helplessly from his office in Brooklyn as the towers fell, knowing that Karen was at work there.
