We’ve talked to Lynn Castrianno over the years about that heart wrenching day. On the day of the museum dedication, we spoke on the phone.

"When momentous occasions come up, it's a lot of memories just come in, flooding. Some of the very unpleasant, some of them not so unpleasant," she said.

On days like this, were so many of us are reflecting on 9-11, Lynn thinks of her brother.

"One of the things I think about is the loss of my brother, somebody who was extraordinarily close to me. So I think about the loss, I think about how the loss occurred," she said.

President Obama marked the dedication of the 9-11 Memorial Museum Thursday.

"We can touch their names and hear their voices," President Obama said at the dedication.

One of those names, Leonard Castrianno, a 30-year-old mortgage trader for Cantor-Fitzgerald. He worked on the 105th floor of the north tower. It was the first building hit on September 11, 2001.

Lynn says Leonard was a good guy, friendly, with a heart of gold.

"My brother was just very outgoing, very friendly, gregarious type of person. He just thoroughly enjoyed living. He loved being in New York City," she said.

She says the long-awaited opening of the museum brings a sense of relief.

"I would love to go visit the museum. I think it will be a way not only to know what happened historically, but to get to know the people who died and their families," she said.

A way to remember Leonard.

"For me, that's everything," Lynn said.

    A Schuyler family suffered an unthinkable loss, and it's a solemn reminder to always think about safety, when it comes to children. A three-year-old was suffocated after an automatic car window rolled up on his neck, outside of a store on April 15th. Passerby's pulled the child from the vehicle, but CPR efforts weren't enough. Everton Romero was later pronounced dead at an Omaha hospital.
