I remember Chris from when I was in New York. He never liked walking.

Love from Dorothy, John, and Audrey in Cork, Ireland (His Cousins)

I was lucky enough to know Chris well. He was one of my closest friends. We went to school together. We hung out together. And to this day I consider myself one of the most privileged men alive because I have the memories of a great man. R.I.P., SUPER!

Hi. Chris' granda and my dad were brothers. Both were born in Ireland. My dad's name was Chris, and he lived in Limerick. Chris' dad and mum came to Limerick a few years ago, after their son's tragedy. All we can do is pray for him and his fellow workers and family. Our thoughts are with ye all. Always.

Rest in peace, Chris.

I was on Google, tracing my family tree, and searched "Christopher Pickford," which is my son's name (born May 2000). I came across this site, and my thoughts changed immediately. The events of September 11th with be with us all for ever, and I remember (like so many others) exactly where I was and what I was doing when the news broke across the world. It is a tragic event, and the loss of so many individuals is heartbreaking, even more so now, 6 years on.

I cannot begin to imagine how terrible this event was for the many families whose lives were turned upside down on that fateful day, but I truly hope that you all find peace and are able to live your own lives to the full, particularly Christopher's family.

Whilst I never met Christopher, or his direct family, I am sure if I trace my family tree far enough, I will find the connection. I know that every time I write my Christopher's name from this point forward, you will all be in my heart.

Such a brave and selfless act, and from those actions so many others were saved. To a hero amongst heroes we send our love from across the water.

I knew Chris many years ago, at a time that I was looking for caring and understanding. Chris was able to give that to me in a way he probably ever knew. He believed in me when I did not believe in myself. He made me laugh even though I was always crying on the inside. Our friendship was short but powerful, at least to me. He helped to restore a sense of confidence and safety, things that I had never felt before. He meant more to me than he ever knew and I cherish the things that he once wrote to me. His friends are lucky to have known him and even though I did not know him for the same length of time or the same level, he lifted me up and I will always thank him and remember him for that. I wonder if he knew that he touched my heart. Rest in peace Chris... I know God is with you.

I first would like to say that I am sorry for this great loss. My condolences to all his friends and family. I live in Massachussetts, and somehow I have Christopher's C.D. I found it at work lying on a desk, and it was there for about two weeks before I picked it up and started listening to it. His music is so great. I love that C.D., and I listen to it every day. I would love to know some of the lyrics to some of the songs. If anybody has them, please email me at: Mikeyme84@yahoo.com ... RIP, Chris Pickford.

I did not know Christopher. I am from Buffalo New York and was working on a detail in Long Island on 9/11/01. I remember a girl who was Christopher's cousin who was very concerned about her cousin who was missing. It never left me. I followed the story when I got home and even remember when he was found. Strange that I can't remember her name but I remember his. I include him in my prayers often and just want to let you know--I will never forget. I don't know them, but my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and fiance also.

In memory of my brave cousin Christopher. We love him and miss him so much every day, but especially today.

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!
