Visitors gather on the overlook at the Flight 93 National Memorial Visitors Center in Shanksville, Pa.

(Shanksville) -- Relatives of two people killed in the crash of United Flight 93 during the 9/11 attacks say they hope to keep the memory of the 40 passengers and crew alive for another generation.

A published report says that about 120 visitors gathered Saturday at the Flight 93 memorial in western Pennsylvania to hear Ken Nacke and Ed Root tell the story of their loved ones.

Nacke's brother, 42-year-old Louis Nacke, was a passenger on the flight on Sept. 11, 2001.

Root's cousin, 58-year-old Lorraine Grace Bay, was a flight attendant.

Hijackers crashed three other passenger airliners into the World Trade Center towers in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C., the same morning.
