Nicole, it hurts so much, your last moments on earth. You must be in a much better place now. Lots of Love to you.

Hey Annie I miss you so much and we just did a poem in creative writing and it made me think of you

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!

The Color, on the Cruising Cloud—
The interdicted Land—
Behind the Hill—the House behind—
There—Paradise—is found!

Her teasing Purples—Afternoons—
The credulous—decoy—
Enamored—of the Conjuror—
That spurned us—Yesterday!

Emily Dickinson

I miss you Auntie :-)

The link to two video/music presentations about Ann is:
http:/www.youtube.come/watch?v=aQfDBOO6XoY. The song "Annie's Gone Home" was written and performed by a HS classmate of mine named Wilson Gillette. Wilson Gillette is a HS classmate of mine. I do not know who made and submitted the other. They both are beautiful ways of keeping her memory alive.

I knew you a little, but I did not know you well.  What I do remember is that you were a beautiful young lady who stood out among your peers. You knew who you were and were ambitious to achieve much, even during your high school years. I pray for your family during this time each year and refuse to forget you or the horrible act that caused you to leave your loved ones so soon.

Thank you for connecting us to something larger and more important than ourselves.

I saw a plaque in memorial of you in the ND Emergency Operations Center. I am an Emergency Manager from Oliver County. I was deeply moved and felt such a love for our state, our country, and your family.

We will always remember. Our thoughts are with Ann's family.

Dearest Annie,
Today marks the 9th anniversary of that terrible day when the evil forces of hate and violence took you from this world.
For us that was the day when smiles and laughter turned to despair and tears and yet somehow we had to live on.

Since I believe we have come to this life to learn from the experiences that we face, I ask myself what have I learned from this.
I have learned that God, and only God, must repay vengeance.
I have learned that human beings must pursue ways of love and forgiveness.
I have learned that the systems of operation that govern our world today are inadequate and that we all must strive to do better.
I have learned that we must not dwell on our losses, but we must rather maximize our opportunities, for life is short.
I have learned that though the spirit leaves the physical body, it lives on and comforts and sustains those that it loves.
I have learned that nothing can separate you from me, my dearest love.

Every year, in honor of victims of 9/11, with a special thought for Ann, I honor the local police and fire departments in Mandan and Bismarck with food gifts as a thank you. As we approach another anniversary, my thoughts are with you, Gary, my long-term friend, and with Jenette. I will never forget.

There are so many friends and so many heartfelt comments that there is hardly anything left to be said. Physically, it is a little empty around here without you, but I know that spiritually you are with us, and I remind myself that you're always in the present tense.... And thank you for choosing us as your parents.

Gratulere med dagen. Hope your birthday is fab.... Miss you, Ann!

Dear Ann,

I go the the school you used to go to, Wayland Academy. When I heard that you went to this school and that you died in the World Trade Center, I wanted to know more about you, like: How was your life at Wayland? And even: Which room did you have?

*** Posted by Magda on 2010-03-05 ***

Dear Ann,

I think of you and pray for your family often, but especially today. I so wish I could have known you and spent time with you. You have been, and continue to be, an inspiration for many.

Dear Annie,

Even though I was only 4 when you died and said some things to you that I shouldn't have, I hope you knew that you were and still are my favorite aunt. Ever. Every 9/11 I cry myself to sleep, hoping that you would come back. And every 9/11 I get reminded that one day I will see you again and apologize for those harmful words. Every one misses you so much. I miss you so much.

Your little Brookey

Although we never met, I think of you and wish we had met. There is a memorial in Sacramento, at state fair grounds, with several I-beams from the WTC. It is a powerful experience. I have let other family know about you. We are a spread-out family, but we all love and care. Peace to you, Dan Roben.

My husband and I were recently staying at the Lion Square Lodge in Vail, CO. We stayed in a room that had a loving photo of you and your many family skiing adventures in Vail. We knew nothing about you other than the pictures in the photo, but somehow we both felt touched by the loss your family and friends must feel. We will forever be touched by your life-loving face that will help us to forever put a real face to a national tragedy.

Dear Ann,

What an amazing spirit you have (and are). I have learned about you from my friend Suzanne, so touched by your upbeat, committed, compassionate nature, your love for family and the world. And now my daughter has been touched by you as well, playing a part in the unfolding of your story and a greater story. I am so glad you were born, Ann, and so glad your presence and promise continue to impact so many in the world. Love and light to you ... and to your mother, from this mom.

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
