When terrorists attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, they left an unimaginable void in the lives of many family members, friends, co-workers, and even strangers throughout the world. The surname Lynch was the third most common among all victims. There were twelve individuals named Lynch that died in the attacks. Only the surnames Lee and Smith were more frequently occurring, with fourteen each.
Although I have never met any of these individuals, my thoughts and prayers are extended to the Lynch families who mourne the loss of these sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts, cousins, grandchildren, and friends. Please keep each of these people and their families in your thoughts and prayers always.
