Those we have lost
Gronlund was on her way to California for a vacation in Napa Valley
on Sept. 11. She'll be remembered for her bravery, ambition and determination
in the face of terrorism. Gronlund, an attorney with BMW who had a
stubborn defiance, called her sister and told her the plane had been
hijacked and that she and others were planning to take it back. Gronlund
then bravely told her sister where to find her personal papers. She
was on the doomed plane with her boyfriend and planned to celebrate
her 47th birthday the very next day in California's wine country.
She was 46.
