"He never waited"

On September 11th 2001 Lisa DeRienzo lost her other half. She lost her twin brother Michael. Michael, an avid athlete and traveler, was a broker for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 104th floor of 1World Trade Center. Michael was frequently traveling to a sporting event or on vacation. He and his sister were to meet in Chicago on Friday 9/14.

His sister reported that he never put off a trip util the following year. Which is the way that he would lead his life. Always living it to the fullest. His sister reported that he had travelled to France, London and Italy in 2001 and that he had also returned from a trip to Tibet with nothing. He had given it all away.

He and his sister had become even more close after the death of their mother in 1997.

This was a man who lived his life to his fullest. Family and friends meant a great deal to him. The world became a little less special when this amazing man was taken from it. God Bless to his family and all the families affected by that day.
