I don't know Andrew but my friend and I decided to do a project about him so I thought that we should post a comment and give respect to all his love ones and God bless!

Andrew was a cousin of sorts and although our paths only crossed once or twice when he visited the UK with his brother Stuart and lovely Mum and Dad, I can still recall the nights in shared bedrooms and Parents telling us to go to sleep. I love New York but haven't been able to go back since 9/11 and have relayed the story and history to my new fiancée and now feel ready to visit again and pay my respects to a top guy, a top family and an amazing city. God bless

I volunteered to write a commemorative blog post about Andrew as part of a tribute for the 8th Anniversary on Project 2996 (http://project2996.wordpress.com). I didn't know Andrew but as a fellow Australian felt it worthy of remembering one of our sons. My deepest condolences to the Knox family and to the families of all who suffered as a result of this horrendous attack. May none of them be forgotten.

I don't know why, but I feel like writing something here. I met Andrew on a few occasions in Adelaide, SA. I was pretty young and doing training with the ACTU, about 12 years ago. He seemed so mature and clear about his path and the contribution he would make. I thought he was a genuine person, and he did not have time to muck around. He was friendly and respectful. I am glad there is a scholarship in his memory for work in industrial relations. His passing is a loss for the world. I remember him even after all this time.

I went to uni in Cairns with Andrew, and we shared more than a few lunch hours and after-study beverages together. We had a bit of a competition going in one subject to try and outdo each other and, no matter what I did, I couldn't get a higher mark than the lad. A gorgeous man who was as big in personality as he was in person. My condolences to his family.

I remember Andrew, admiring him for his wit, his wisdom, his success and most of all for his laugh and contagious smile. He lit the room up when he entered, and I don't think anybody he met will ever forget him. I never knew him as well as I wish I could have, and it makes me sad to know he's gone. He was not only a gentleman, but he was a truly gentle man. So many years have gone by but it still seems unthinkable that he was lost in the way he was. I light a candle for him each year and I try to remember.

One of life's true gents: A decent, honest gentleman, who's passing was a loss to the world and to all who ever met him. Never forgotten.

Just to show you're not forgotten.

I only met Andrew once, during a political campaign in Cairns. My memory is of an intelligent, happy, good-looking young man, who seemed dedicated to the ethos of his political party. I extend my condolences to Andrew's family and friends. Lest We Forget.

Happy days we had Andrew, while working for Raine and Horne Cairns, I miss you and think of you often. My love to you and your family

Andrew was my cousin I did not know him very well, but I do remember when I was very little that he used to talk to me even though I probally wasnt listening as I was only 5 and I will always remember him as the man who went out of his way to talk to me probally the only person who ever will. I MISS YOU ANDREW. I'm 16 now and I was 11 when he died and i am very grateful for the time he spent with as a young child......

I'm now living in Shanghai 5 yrs later and remember his smile/candor and Aussie cheekiness (I call it) and of working with him in Cairns, Australia. He was never short of telling it the way it was - and for someone younger than me, I admired that confidence and maturity. I hadn't wondered why he had ended up working in the most renowned financial building in N.Y. - He was charisma. I remember often smiling when he talked to the 'boss, who always smiled when he replied. I think of you, Andrew, at this time. You are there, tall, handsome, smiling and most importantly, funlonving. What more could you ask? He would probably tell me to '...'in colourful Aussie talk, which I love!, but there you go it's how you remember people isn't it? Happy Days!

Andrew Knox lived near me on the Upper East Side. I met him one morning in 2000 when he grabbed me by the lapels and yanked me on to the 6 train as the doors were closing. His comment "now you won't be late for work" was his introduction. We used to run into each other on our morning walk to the subway and became friends. I miss him and think of him every time I miss a train!!!

Andrew was an amazing person that made all around him feel special. He loved life and lived his to the fullest. To know him was and is to love him, he is far too loved to ever be forgotten. He touched the hearts of all that met him.  Our collective hearts have been broken by his loss. He is thought of every single day and so are his family and friends who carry the burden of his loss.
