First I would like to pass on my condolences to Christopher’s friends and family. I only know what I have learned from the posts and a few internet searches on his life and legacy, but I discovered enough to say society suffered an immense loss on that day… Kristopher R. Pickford

I am lucky to have the Tribute C.D. of Chris Pickford. I listen to it every once in a while and think of him. He was an awsome gutairist. I always listen to it on 9-11. Althought I did not know him he is remembered with his music in this household.

I just spent the weekend in NYC, and we went to the Brooklyn, Coney Island Sept 11th Memorial with Chris's mom. A lot has happened since Sept 11th: Chris's dad (my brother Tom) died in 2005. His brother David became a firefighter with FDNY, fell in love, married, and has a beautiful son, named Christopher Peter Pickford. We are all still trying to live our lives to the fullest, keeping in mind that Chris would have insisted on that. I can't say what brought me to this web page, but I feel a sense of pride and peace now.

Thank you all,
Aunt Susan

Christopher was my cousin. I didn't know him very well because I was very young, maybe 3. But from what I heard, he loved me very much. He was a brave man, and I will never forget him and what he has done for us. I wish I could've known him longer and better. I miss him very, very much, and I love him with all my heart. He will always be with me and my family. I pray for him and his family (my aunts and uncles, etc.) I love you all very much.

After doing an internet search for 9/11 NYFD bracelet, we stumbled upon this website and quickly found the name of the courageous young firefighter we were looking for, Christopher James Pickford. He was 32 years old at the time of his death—such a terrible waste of a life, of this man who put his life on the line every day for his fellow man. Reading the tributes and condolences, it is obvious that he was loved by all who knew him, and many prayers have been sincerely prayed by those of us who didn't know him, but who appreciate his sacrifice.

To Kristen, the owner of the silver bracelet, Kim and I hope you are visiting this website again during the 2009 holiday season because Kim has located the bracelet that you lost. Kim works at a Red Roof Inn, and this bracelet was left behind in one of their rooms several months ago. The policy is to keep items in the lost and found department for 30 days and then dispose of them. However, Kim held on to this bracelet for months longer than that, hoping that the guest who left it would call to claim it. Today she brought it home so that we could research it on the internet. A few clicks later, and we found this page. We both hope you read this and email us at mrcptnr (at) yahoo (dot) com, using Christopher's name as the subject. Our Thanksgiving has been made even more special this year by having the opportunity to return this cherished bracelet to you, Kristen. Our prayers are with you, your Mom, and all those who lost loved ones on 9/11/2001.

About a month after the attacks my mother bought me a silver bracelet with a name on it and she told me that the name was for a fallen firefighter on 9/11. It had Christopher Pickford's name on it and I prayed for him and his family every night. I wore that bracelet for four years until someone stole it and I was heartbroken when I found out that I could not get a replacement. I hope whoever stole that bracelet knows the significance of the amazing person that the name represents.

Though I never met him, I'll remember Christopher Pickford forever. Rest in peace.

I didn't know Chris personally. But I did lose a very close friend that day, who was a Captain in the department. The reason I post? I walk my dog every day on the block where he must have lived in Queens and that bears his name. It is a reminder. I look up at the street sign every morning, and I say a prayer. For Chris and all the others: At this eighth anniversary, many of us remember and always will. My prayers and thoughts are with Chris's family on 9/11/09.

I go to the same school he went to, and there is a mural memorial for him there.

We were delighted to see Tommy and Linda, Christopher Pickford's parents, when they came to Cork, Ireland. I remember Chris from when I was in New York. Love from Dorothy, John, and Audrey.

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.

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!
