May He Never Be Forgotten




9/11 ACTIVISTS' KIN ID'D
By MAGGIE HABERMAN and WILLIAM NEUMAN

April 17, 2002 -- Using DNA analysis, the Medical
Examiner's Office has identified the remains of a young
electrician killed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks - a man
whose family has become one of the most vocal
James, 26, lies buried beneath the rubble that once was Tower
advocates for relatives of World Trade Center victims

James Cartier was 26 when he died. He was working as
an apprentice electrician in the offices of Aon Corp., on
one of the upper floors of the trade center's south tower.


The ME's office matched DNA from James' older
brother, Patrick, to remains recovered in November.
Officials notified the family on Monday.


"It's been a long wait, but we never lost faith or hope
that we were going to find him," Patrick told The Post.
"It's a sense of relief that we finally can put our brother
to rest."


He praised the ME's office for its work in seeking to
identify the more than 19,000 human remains recovered
at Ground Zero.


But he also said the recovery does not end the family's
ordeal.


"Anyone who believes this is a closure is sick. We will
take this to our graves."
