The Clarke family's story
Janet Clarke was leaving her home in Villanova, PA. for her
regular Tuesday bible study group when her daughter Tricia
called. "Turn on the TV, there's a fire at the World Trade
Center." Janet remembers it was 9:10am. Both towers had been
hit. "It was horrendous. I called Christopher's wife Casey,
who was at work at Credit Suisse-First Boston in downtown
Philadelphia. "She couldn't talk."
Casey had already received two phone calls from her husband.
The first one arrived at about 8:50am. "We have to get out
of here. Papers are flying all over the place." Casey told
Christopher to "get out and call me." He called back moments
later to say only "It's chaos here. We're all getting out."
Casey could hear the fire alarms in the background. That was
the last anyone heard from Christopher.
Janet remembers thinking about the beautiful weather on
Tuesday. "I can't believe he went into work. He's a golfer.
I thought he'd at least be late." Janet says Christopher is
among more than 60 missing Sandler O'Neill colleagues working
on the trading floor.
Janet moved into New York to make daily visits to Sandler
O'Neill's command center set up at the St. Regis Hotel, and
to help in the daily checks to city hospitals, searching for
her son's name. Christopher's twin bother Tim drove home in
24 hours straight from Dillon Colorado where he had moved
last month. Tim told his Mother "he's alive. I know he is.
I would know if he wasn't." Janet says Tim's words help her
sleep at night so she "can be strong when we find him."
