FORT PIERCE, Fla.-- Friends and family gathered by the Indian River in Fort Pierce Tuesday morning to pay tribute to Cee Cee Ross Lyles.
She was a flight attendant on board United Flight 93 on 9/11 that crashed in Pennsylvania.
Before embarking on a career in the skies, Lyles was a detective with the Fort Pierce Police Department.
"She was a good person and cared about people and wanted the best for people. I'm just glad people are still interested to celebrate her life," said her brother Tony Ross.
"There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my fellow crew and how brave they were that day," said friend Jerome Sangalli.
As part of Lyles's legacy, a graduating senior at Fort Pierce Westwood High is honored with the Cee Cee Ross Lyles Memorial Scholarship.
