'Have Daughter, Will Travel'

Growing up in Bucks County, Pa., Sandra Wright was the oldest girl among nine children and the biggest adventurer. When divorce left her to raise her own daughter alone in New Jersey, she did it with gusto.

"We drove across the country in a camper when I was just a little tot," recalled her daughter, Shelli, who gave birth to her mother's only grandchild three months ago. "We went to Paris, skiing in Europe. Most of her family never went into New York."

In 1992, mother and daughter both worked in Rockefeller Center, reveling in the glamour of pedicure lunch hours and "window shopping in the stores we couldn't afford." When Shelli went to college, though, her mother moved from New Jersey back to her hometown of Langhorne, Pa., where her family gathers 150 strong every holiday. A year and a half ago she was married there to Steven Cartledge, a man she met at a church dance.

Ms. Wright, 57, had a round-trip commute of four hours between Langhorne and Aon in the World Trade Center. "She never complained about it," her daughter said, "because she loved New York City and she loved her family, and she got to have both."

Weeks after the September 11th events, I found out that I had a distant relative that perished in the WTC, her name is Sandra Wright. I never had the opportunity to meet Sandra and only wished that I knew that she worked in the same city that I live, work and love. After reading her obituary, I have learned that she comes from a close knit family and I sincerely hope that they are all doing as well as can be expected. I think of Sandra and her family often, especially when volunteering for the American Red Cross at the Respite Center at Ground Zero. I feel close to her, not due to the proximity, but perhaps because it may be her final resting place. I hope that she rests in peace and watches over the family that loves and misses her so dearly.
