9/11 Memorial - Placing the Names

When it was decided the memorial would have the names of all those lost in the 9/11 tragedy, one practical aspect soon become a hurdle that would have to be tackled and solved: how would the names be placed?

There were over one thousand requests for people wanting their loved one's names to be next to family and/or friends... and managing all that soon become too much for any single person to grasp.
