Moises Rivas

He said, Mami, he loves you no matter what happens.  He loves you.

On September 11, 2001, 29-year-old Ecuadorean immigrant Moises Rivas called his wife, Elizabeth, after terrorists flew an American Airlines 767 into the north tower of the World Trade Center.  Moises worked as a chef at the Windows on the World restaurant, which occupied the north tower's 107th floor.

Elizabeth was at the laundromat when he called.  She rushed home after learning of the attacks and asked her daughter-in-law, Linda, if Moises had called.  Linda said he had, and told Elizabeth what he had said.  That was the last anyone heard from Moises.
