Project 2996 - Sharon Carver

On September 11, 2001 Sharon Carver was sitting in her office at the Pentagon when a hijacked plane hit the building killing her.  She was only 38 years old.  She was civillian accountant for the Army while working towards her master's degree in accounting.  She lived with her family in Waldorf, MD.  The days after the attack her nephew was interviewed by the local news, they were still holding out hope that she survived the attack. One of many hearbreaking scences that played out for days after the attack. 

A life that was cut too short.  A life that will not include grandchildren or growing old.  A life that will no longer include the annual family vacations.  She was days back from a family outing to Disney World. A family is now missing a loving daughter, sister, and aunt.  The Pentagon is missing a dedicated emloyee, and her friends are missing her personality, her humor, and that amazing smile of hers. 

Sharon believed in education and public service.  Traits that we should all aspire to.  She was dedicated to her family and her country. 

"You are truly missed. I remember your kind and warm spirit. You brightened the halls of Anacostia with your smile."

To Sharon's family, there are no words to express our sympathies to you.  May God Bless you and know that Sharon is watching over you and smiling.

Thank you for remembering Sharon.

I honor Christopher Paul Slattery, who died in the World Trade Center.

Sharon Carver's beautiful smile must have been a reflection of a beautiful spirit. Your tribute brings me to tears.

What a lovely tribute to Sharon. Too many radiant smiles were extinguished that awful morning.

As you honor one, you honor all who perished that day.

Thanks for your diligence, in remembering our fallen.

sharon carver is from my home town, waldorf maryland - however, i've been gone for 23 years now. sharon was 2 years older than i and i didn't know her, but my sister did. in towns across the country, the personal impact of even one lost one was too heartbreaking, too much to bear. and yet, bear it we must.
