 World Trade Center Attack

From a post by "karin" a childhood friend of Christine Belford.
"The strangest one would be that my best friend when I was growing up was Christine Riley. I used to take the bus to her house every Saturday and her mom would drive us to the stables so we could ride our horses. I spent the weekend with her all of the fact went to my first formal with her brother. She became an actress named Christine Belford (Marcus Welby's daughter) and other bit parts. The really neat thing is her home was in Amityville and it was the house that the movie "Amityville Horror" was based on!"

Like Father, Like Son

Their firstborn's name was debated and decided, but the baby looked too much like his father to be a Brendan. He was a Peter J. O'Neill Jr. case closed his mother, Jeanne, decided when she caught her first glimpse. Peter O'Neill shared all of his father's interests and an extra virtue: enamored of firemen from the time he was 2, he joined his local volunteer crew in Amityville, N.Y., at 17.

At home, he and his father were known as "the twins." Handy and outdoorsy like dad, Peter Jr. knew his way around the family boat, the basement toolbox, the lawn mower; he also hunted duck and shot skeet, a bonding ritual for the O'Neill men.

He considered working alongside his father, a Wall Streeter-turned-painting contractor, but realized his business degree from Bentley College would get a better workout at his uncle's firm, Sandler O'Neill & Partners, at 2 World Trade Center. He was a natural there, too, and he and four friends were stockpiling their salaries in hopes of renting a Manhattan apartment.

Shoe-shopping on the Sunday before the attack, Peter, 21, told his mother he intended to take classes to become an emergency medical technician. When she asked why he wanted to do that rather than go to graduate school, he said, "Because, Mom, I want to help people."
