9/11 Tribute: Relecting on Losing a Father on 9/11 by Kimberly Rex

On September 11, 2001, Kimberly Rex lost her father, Vincent Litto who was a senior vice-president at Cantor Fitzgerald. He worked on the 104th floor of Tower 1. Kimberly recently had two opinion pieces published: "When people say 'Never Forget' 9/11, this is what I hear" for CNN, and "My father was killed on 9/11. I still struggle to understand how he just disappeared" for the Washington Post. She graciously talked to Saint Louis In Tune and reflected on the loss and memories of her father and the ongoing grief which impacts many 9/11 families.
