I visited the World Trade Center Memorial a year ago. Like everyone else I began taking pictures. I stood right in front of Anns name. This may sound strange but among the thousands her name stood out to me. Like she was a truly special happy person with a special purpose/mission. I looked her up on this site as I read about Anne I could see now that she was excately as I imagined happy and full of life. I just want her family members to know that I'm sure she is happy now too. And that her purpose that God gave to her continues on.

Ann Nicole Nelson lived on this earth between the years 1971 and 2001. Her life was both joyful and purposeful. She looked for meaning in all her experiences and seemed to be guided by a plan that was greater than all of us. She placed great value on education and believed that all the world was a classroom. This led her to travel throughout this country as well as many others. She loved and enjoyed people, embraced diversity, and felt that we all have much to learn from each other.

Ann established college funds for many of her young relatives and friends. She attended Stanley Public School, Stanley, ND; Campus School in Minot, ND; Wayland Academy in Beaver Dam, WI; and Carleton College in Northfield, MN. She also studied at Cambridge in England and spent a semester on a study tour throughout China. She recently spent time in Peru, Norway, and Ireland. Ann was born on Syttende Mai and loved to celebrate holidays and special occasions with her friends. Her birthday party sometimes lasted for a week. Ann enjoyed all sports and participated in a variety of events including skiing, golf, tennis and soccer.

Ann died as the result of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center where she worked on the 104th floor as a bond broker for Cantor Fitzgerald. She previously worked for Dain Rauscher from 1993 to 2000, first in Minneapolis, and then in Chicago. Ann is survived by her parents, Gary and Jenette; brother and sister-in-law, Scott and Dawn; their five children, Brittany, Brooke, Jessie, Jeremiah and Brianna, boyfriend of three years, Eric Lockovitch; her Newfoundland dog, Newman; many loving aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as the enormous family of loving friends who will miss her dearly. She would not want us to grieve...only remember.
