Candace, you're always in my thoughts, especially this time of year. Miss you

I miss you

I will always remember you. You were someone who always smiled and made people better around you. I know you're in a better place now.

Dear Candace,

I pray for you all the time. It's been 6 years, and it's still hard for me, but I know you're looking down upon us. Trying to find a memorial service at Northeastern right now. I hope they have one. I told my little cousin to leave a rose on your tree today for me. It's growing beautifully, she says. She's a Freshman in Immaculate now. You are always in my thoughts, and I will always remember you.

Today marks the 6 year anniversary of 9/11. Not a day goes by that I don't think about having class with you, joking and laughing, and talking about our upcoming trips to California. You were an amazing person. You were and will remain loved by all.

I know you don't even know me, but I sure found out a lot about you from your mom and your grandmother, and your grandfather (Tom) was my mom's brother. When the plane hit the tower, all I could think of is, "All those people!" I was in shock, just like the rest of the world that day. Then I found out you were on that plane. I could not believe my ears but found out through a call to family that it was true. My heart broke in half that day. All I could think about is why this happened. You were so young and had so many plans for your life, and in a split second they were gone. I just keep thinking about your mom and brother. How are they going to handle a thing like this? What do I say when I see her? All I had to do was look in her eyes and know how much she was hurting and not believing this could happen. All she and your brother and your grandmother talked about was what a wonderful and loving caring person you are. I never got to meet you in person, but I can see we all have the same features and smiles. Anyone would know we were related just by looking. I couldn't beleive it when I saw pictures of you and I learned so much about you. I really wish I had the chance to meet you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family every night as I ask god to protect everyone. I know he has his arms around you just holding you so close and near. I am so sorry for what happend on Sept 11, and I will never forget that day as long as I live. And when my time to leave this world comes, I hope you are waiting for me at the gates with the rest of the family, and I will be able to meet you and hold you close.

We remember all those who perished in the September 11th terrorists attacks in our country. You are now in God's place where there is endless love and happiness and no mure pains. We pray for the strength for the families left behind and especially to your Mom and brother.

Its been 5 years today. This morning when I woke to go to class, all I could think about was walking into History my senior year and watching the 2nd plane crash into the other tower. I couldnt believe such a thing could happen. Thinking about it today still brings me to tears but today I turned a different page. I lived my life just as I had pre 9/11 but I held my family a little closer. I cherished my freedoms a little more, and I carried on with my life. While your death was senseless, it was not in vain. September 11th changed us all. It proved America could be unified at an instant when few thought we could. Rest in peace.

I learned of your story last night - and then today saw a lovely tribute to you on the New York news. What a lovely family you left behind and what a beautiful girl you were. I feel as if I knew you, and I will keep you and your family in my prayers - always. You were blessed with friends and family and this tragedy is so beyond senseless. You would be proud of your brother and your friends - and I know that you know you will never be forgotten - even for those of us who never had the honor of knowing you.

Anyone who knew her loved her. I knew her well, and there wasnt one person who didnt like her. She always had a smile, she could always make you laugh, she made everyone around her a better person. The thing about her was that regardless of what people did or what their actions were, she was always able to see the absolute good in someone. It's one thing to see the good, but she was also able to bring that good out. She never held resentment or anger towards anyone. I once heard from a priest that God would always be present in times of need. Present in that we as people might not know, but the presence would be there. I think God sent Candace to that airplane to be his disciple and aid those who needed her confidence, courage and affection. She was the light on that airplane that shined through all the darkness. I look forward to seeing you again, as does everyone else. But I know that Candace would tell me and everyone else, take your time. That's who she was, the best qualities a person can have, she had them all!

It was your birthday Sunday March 5. We put a yellow rose on your memorial. Think of you everyday. Think of your Mom and Corey who miss you so very much.
See you someday.

I did not know her but I sure would being as brave as she was to give up her life for us. I am very sorry that she died in 9-11. That is so sad that she died. We will always honor her as Americans(us).

I didn't know you, but I think of you often.  Every time I pass the tree and plaque that have been placed in your name at Northeastern, I wonder if you and I would have somewhere, sometime passed each other on campus.  As I plan for my future after I graduate this May, it hurts me that you will not be able to flip your tassle or hold your diploma, too.  Why weren't you given the chance to live out your dreams?  I can't answer this question or any of the thousand others like this that run through my mind, but I just want you to know that I try to make every one of my days more fulfilling because I sense, from everything that I've ever heard about you, that you would have done the same.
Thank you, Candace.
Your friend,

Hey Candace.

for speech class tomorrow i have to write a tribute speech. i have chosen to write about you. i took you for granted the short time we were friends. i even was mad at you and blamed you for my mistakes. i wish now i could take that back and spend your last days as the good friends we once were. I saw this page and it was blank. i couldn't leave it that way because you are too special to have an empty page. i love you and i miss you everyday...you would never have imagined that i would be writing this the way we left things. I am so so sorry.

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.

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!
