New York Times Portraits of Grief

Elaine Cillo

Elaine Cillo loved to take pictures. Her two-bedroom apartment in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, might as well be a photo gallery, with pictures even crowding the walls in the bathroom. There are photographs of the Brooklyn and Verrazano- Narrows Bridges, of apples in a basket, of autumn leaves in upstate New York. She has a beautiful shot of the Eiffel Tower.

Elaine's twin sister, Lynne Cillo-Capaldo, was looking at the photos on Saturday with her husband, Paul Capaldo. Elaine, 40, a vice president at Marsh Technology and Information Service, worked on the 97th floor of the north tower.

Over the summer, the sisters and Paul vacationed in Greece. Lynne said her husband got a great picture of Elaine: It showed the camera buff taking a photo.
