FORT MYERS, FL- Lorne Lyles says he carries a smile after learning Osama Bin Laden had been killed by U-S Navy Seals. Lyles lost his wife Cee Cee in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. Cee Cee was a flight attendant on Flight 93. After the hijacking was underway, Cee Cee managed to make several calls to Lorne's cell phone. The first calls went to Lorne's voice mail. He says he had worked the night shift as an officer of the Fort Myers Police Department and was asleep when the calls were coming in. He did awaken and get to have a conversation with his wife before the plane went down. Lorne says they  prayed together and said their goodbyes. The plane went down in a field in Pennsylvania. There were no survivors. Now, nearly a decade later, Bin Laden is dead and Lorne says there can be no closure but he has learned to cope with his loss. He also expressed thanks to former fellow officers and citizens of Lee County for all the support he received after the tragedy. Lorne went on to note, Bin Laden was killed on he and Cee Cee's wedding anniversary date.
