5:24 am
house. >> we celebrate todd's life. >> he's become a symbol of what happened and what was lost that day. he had two sons, still does have two sons, but they were 11 years old and now they're graduating college next year. and so their lives have changed forever. so yeah, it was a celebratory kind of a thing, but it's bittersweet for us. we lost a son and they lost a father. and so he had a very successful career building, in washington. and he was on that plane because he was going out to california on some business legal thing. so yeah, we're happy about it. and but at the same time it's sad for us to know what was lost that day for us and the people jumping up and down in front of the white house are happy and i
5:25 am
respect that, but the families have a lot of memories and. >> once you get over the excitement of bin laden's death then you think about your loss. so it's a double edged sword. i mean, i'm happy that he was caught, but it brings back all the memories that we still have. >> talk to us a little bit about todd. you know, obviously many, many years have passed, almost ten years now. what has it been like having to tell his children about him? what do you tell them to keep their father's memory alive? >> they were pretty close with them. he was a big sports fan. i mean, i went to games with him. in fact, not soon before 9/11 we went out to the redskins'
5:26 am
football practice, they miss that. i miss that. you know, we're sports addicts. he wouldn't be happy about the caps losing last night. we used to go to the u.s. arena and watch them play. i miss that camaraderie with him. and he was just a good guy. i mean, he was a very smart guy, good attorney. he was well liked by his firm. and so that's one of his two boys, twin sons, and now they'll be graduating a year from june at syracuse university. >> they're doing very well actually. i asked them because i wasn't doing so well. they said they've learned to move on. >> they've tried to put this thing behind them, you know. >> some of the people we talked to outside the white house said that their hope was that this would provide some type of closure in some way for family
5:27 am
members. does it? >> i guess to some degree it does, but you never get closure when you lose a son or a daughter or a mother or a father. closure is a very general term, particularly when you lose a child. i mean, to us he was a child. he was 40, but hea child. and closure is sort of a general term, but yeah, it is helpful. it's helpful to know that they finally got the guy that did this thing, but we'll just live with this forever. we never thought we'd be on television or doing these kind of things. >> it does change your life, it makes your life hard. it makes it hard to be together sometimes. >> he has memorials all over the place. benches at the pentagon and memorials in montgomery county and stuff. so here he was living this normal life and all of a sudden he's become this person that everybody wants to talk about.
5:28 am
and sometimes you don't want to talk about it. it's hurtful. >> carol and jessie ruben, we appreciate you coming in and sharing this with us. we'll talk with you again in our next hour. we appreciate it. stay with us, we'll be right back.
