The death of Osama Bin Laden came as a huge relief for the families of the victims and the survivors of the worst terrorist attack on American soil.

Joy Garcia, who lived in Carrollton for many years, was working at the World Trade Center when two hijacked planes slammed into the towers on September 11, 2001.

On Sunday, she was at her new home in Austin when she got the news. Garcia said she was flooded with text messages, phone calls and e-mails from friends, relatives and other survivors.

"The face that we associate with terrorism and evil is his face, so to know that he is off... that he is out of this world is just relief... it's great," Garcia said.

She was overwhelmed with emotion and told News 8 that May 1, 2011 is a day she will never forget.
