In life and death, Stephen Siller brought his family together. With both of his parents dead by the time he was 10, his six brothers and sisters, all much older, helped raise him. When Siller, a New York firefighter, died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, his siblings rallied around, helping his widow raise their five children. As New York marks the fourth anniversary of the attacks at ground zero, the Sillers will once again stand together.

TEMECULA - To visit Cpl. Juan Dominguez in his new "smart home" adapted to his combat injuries, his friends will wind through streets with names from the traumatic event that led to the Marines being sent to Afghanistan. Off Meadows Parkway, they'll cruise along Nacke Drive, then Bradshaw Drive, Dahl Drive and Lyles Drive, all named for people who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93, one of the planes hijacked by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. From Lyles Drive, they'll come to Rivera Drive, also named for someone who was on the flight that crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers and crew members thwarted the terrorists' plan to crash the aircraft in Washington.

After 21 days of bagpipes, tears and eulogies, Sally Siller was reeling from grief. She had mourned at the funerals of firefighters killed in the World Trade Center attacks, and now it was time to face her own loss. Her husband, Stephen, had not been heard from since he raced to join his Brooklyn fire engine company at the crash site on Sept. 11. And as days turned into weeks, her five young children still had not been told what happened to their father.
