  2. My Name is Mark Abrams.
    When I was in business Joe Spor was my credit advisor at Milliken and Company.
    I was shocked and saddened when Joe died on 9/11 for no good reason but the act of a Mad Society.
    Joe was a true gentleman and business friend always.

    What a terrible loss as the many thousands who died on 9/11.

    – Mark Abrams
  3. Joe and his loving family were a wonderful part of our community in Somers NY. As a firefighter who became one after being inspired by 9/11 I can’t honor Joe’s sacrifice and the sacrifice his family made enough. May God protect and bless his beautiful family, even twenty years later we won’t forgot his sacrifice and the sacrifice all 343 of his brothers made that day.
