I worked with Zandra at IBM in the 1980s where we both went through IBM sales school together. Zandra was a role model in so many ways. She was extremely dedicated and very hardworking - yet she was compassionate towards her fellow IBMers. Always smiling, very bright and confident, organized and self-motivated. Zandra will never be forgotten. Prayers today for Zandra and her husband, Robert, as well as all their children.

In memory of Zandra Cooper. Praying for her family she left behind.

Zandra was a friend and IBM colleague and each anniversary of 9/11 I think of her and her family. This anniversary is no different except I found this site and wanted to extend my condolences to her family and to let them know that we all remember Zandra...and it makes me smile to do so.

I worked with Zandra on the FEDRIC Staff at IBM for over 3 years. We shared many a laugh together and I remember her smile. She was always smiling. She was always quick to help out a friend in need or offer words of encouragement. I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

I worked with her sister in San Antonio. No one should be forgotten in this tragedy and in any tragedy. May she always live for her family.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Zandra at IBM for a couple of years ('86 - '88). Every one of my many memories of Zandra are of the good times we shared - smiles, laughter, warmth, consummate professionalism, competence service, dedication, and sheer joy.

I last saw her in the late '90s at Comdex in Las Vegas, and when we discovered that we were both single at the time, we had a good laugh over the idea that we could actually date each other if we weren't a thousand miles apart. I can honestly say that I loved Zandra as a sister. She was a beautiful person, inside and out, and I remember very clearly the tears I shed when I learned on that dreadful day 9 years ago that she was one of the victims of that hateful crime against humanity. It made 9/11 painfully personal for me, and easier to imagine the incomprehensible suffering of so many whose loss was so infinitely greater than mine.

So to Zandra's family and loved ones, if you read this, please know that there are many others who share your love for Zandra and remember her with tremendous fondness and warmth. She was a bright light of hope, love, and joy - and even the darkness of evil cannot extinguish that light in our hearts and minds.

My heart goes out to you. I know you will never forget. Please help me preserve the personal stories of 9/11. History will remember the details of that horrific day; in my own little way, I am attempting to remember the stories of everyday people. Please consider allowing me to hear your story, or a story of someone you could recommend. Please visit iwas911.com for more clarification on what my intentions are. I leave you with one thought that I received from an individual I talked to from Wyoming after hearing his story. He, by the way, is a farmer and motivational speaker. At the beginning of his presentations, he asks people to write down what they would do if they found out they only had six months to live, and then put the paper in their pockets. At the end of his talk, he then tells them to remove the paper and look at it. He then states, "How do you know you DON'T have only six months to live?" He posed that question to me regarding the people who perished on that fateful day.

Take care. Remember. God bless.

On this 2009 anniversary of our loss of Zandra, I just want to say I still remember her from the time we worked together in Branch Office 21W at IBM. Zandra was always smiling.

Zandra was my cousin. Her family left in San Antonio are thinking of her today.

I am so thankful for all the firefighters who helped and who died trying to help save the twin towers and get the people out.

Zandra was my mentor at IBM. She was always a joy to be around. We enjoyed many meals at the Corner Bakery, and she would explain the workings of IBM. I think of her often and have the warmest thoughts. I will never forget her.

I never knew her, but I'm thinking of her today, and praying for the family she left behind.

I worked with Zandra at IBM for over two years. We had a great relationship. Zandra was always so supportive and positive. Zandra always kept things in focus and was never without a smile.

I have missed her for 5 years, and my heart reamins heavy. We keep her memory alive here at home as I speak of her often. My prayers go out to the family.

My neighbor, Mike Gann and my favorite IBMer Zandra Cooper and their families are in my thoughts and prayers today.

One never quite heals from such devastation. I will always remember 9/11/2001.

In memory of Mrs. Cooper. I went to high school with her daughters and worked with Zena. I thought it was important to remember her and all who knew her on this anniversary. you are in our thoughts and prayers.

*** Posted by Emily McGilton on 2004-09-11 ***

This is the Mother of a friend of hers. One time she threw a party and Zena and I served the party for her Mother. Her Mother was so proud of us. I will miss her.
