I did not know Douglas personally, however I worked with his wife Susan. I think of her and her family quite often, especially on the anniversary of 9/11. Susan...wherever you are, I send many hugs and prayers your way.

Doug was a classmate, boxing partner and friend. I have him in my thoughts as I reflect on him and our loss almost 10 years ago.

I grew up during the summers on Fire Island, where I was fortunate enough to have a large group of friends my own age. Doug and his crew were about seven years older, and we idolized them growing up. They taught us the alphabet in the sand one summer when we were very young and plenty of other stuff as we got older. Truthfully, I never really knew Doug very well, but I knew he was always great at everything he did, and he stood out for being charismatic and kind, and I knew that I wanted to be like him since before I can remember. I thought seriously about applying to West Point because Doug had gone there. He was visiting one of his Fire Island friends, Doug Gardner, in the WTC the morning of 9/11, and it brings me some small comfort that they were together at the end. I don't know why I have been thinking about the two of them lately, perhaps it's because I'm now older than they were on that day — which is very strange to think about. For me and my Fire Island crew, the names Doug Gurian and Doug Gardner will live forever.

I remember Mr. Gurian's smiling face as he brought his son Tyler to the Palisades Country Day school bus each day. May his family be comforted by those whose lives were touched by him.

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.
