NHL.com has an article about how the friends and family have of Ace Bailey and Mark Bavis have moved forward since their deaths on United Flight 175:
When tragedy strikes, you can do one of two things: 1) Let grief consume you, or, 2) move forward, despite the endless strides and rocky roads that lay ahead.
For the families of two Los Angeles Kings scouts, Mark Bavis and Garnet “Ace” Bailey, two passengers who were killed on United Airlines Flight 175 when it crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, they’ve come to realize that though five years have passed, their loved ones aren’t forgotten.
Lew Mongelluzzo, an Ottawa Senators scout who hails from Philadelphia, clearly takes the city’s nickname, “The City of Brotherly Love,” to heart.
Mongeluzzo, who owns and operates the thoroughbred-racing stable, Team Power Play Racing, simply combined his two favorite interests to keep the spirit of both Bavis and Bailey alive. Mongelluzzo decided to purchase a New York-bred colt that he named Aces Mark in honor of his two peers.
“I’m not a Boston guy, so I don’t go way back to when they (Bavis and twin brother Mike) played high-school hockey,” Mongelluzzo said. “Mark and I would see each other in the rink, we traveled together, and we’d discuss players. It was a good friendship. We’d have a coffee, have a beer, and discuss players. That’s the kind of friendship we really had.”
