Barbara Keating 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Barbara Keating.  Barbara was 72 years old on 9/11/01.  She was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11, heading back to California after visiting with her family.  
Having been a widow for 20 years, she moved from Cape Code to California, she survived two fights with breast cancer, had five children and worked for 25 years serving people like the Boys and Girls Club... wow, what a strong person and a real fighter.  In California she drove a red convertible and attended church every day. 

From what I have read of her, Barbara Keating a happy, full life, but still, she was taken too soon and it's so unfair.  I'm so sorry that her loved ones lost her, she was loved and no doubt that she is missed.  Here are some messages and memories left for her...

Welcome Keatings to NYC for 10 year anniversary! You haven't changed a bit.
Barbara would be so proud of the grandchildren. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. Tom F
