A flag was waving for you on the 14th Street Bridge along with one for each victim from the Pentagon on this, the 10th anniversary of such a horrific tragedy. May the memory of you and all the others from that day long endure.

Cousin Eddie, you will always be remembered in my heart. Today I shared the story with my son Ramar. I always tell him of how your father encouraged me as a child telling me that I can be anything I want to be in life.

To my dear friend and long time colleague at P.M., Eddie Dillard, I can hardly believe ten years have passed since the terror of that 9/11 day. I just wanted to add my voice to say how much you are thought of and truly missed. I will always remember you as a kind and gentle man with such an enduring smile. R.I.P. Eddie.

Mr. Dillard hired me out of college to work at PM USA. With respect I always used to address "him" as Mr. Dillard. One day he looked at me and said "I am not Mr. Dillard, that is my father. I am Eddie. Please call me Eddie" Yes, Mr. Dillard..oh, I mean Eddie. I replied.
Eddie had a wonderful smile and laughter that lit the room.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Dillard family. Blessings to all.

I, your ex-wife, think about you all the time. I know you did not get a chance to see DeShaun, your grandson, but he is truly a wonderful grandson. He has been told about you. You will never be forgotten by any of us or by your son Edrick Dillard. We love you!

You will always remain gentle on our minds.

Eddie, you will never be forgotten, from R. Dillard. You have a grandson by the name of DeShaun Eddie Dillard, who looks
a lot like you, and he is a very smart baby boy. I told him about his grandfather. I know you are in heaven right now, and you are blessed to be with our heavenly Father. We all miss you.

I knew Eddie from the Tolleston neighborhood in Gary, IN. We grew up together on 19th and Taft. The Dillards lived across the street from us. When my brother David was killed in the Navy in 1967, I remember receiving comfort from Eddie. May Eddie and David enjoy eternity together.

My heart still breaks as I remember on this 8-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our great nation.

To our Lord in Heaven above, a few words to send up to my Uncle Eddie.

As a child, Uncle Eddie, you and my Aunt Ruby gave me the first job I ever had. Just 14 years old... you let this skinny, inquisitive kid tag along with you to your 7-Eleven store in Seattle. You worked me hard and kept me from complaining about those awful oh-dark-30 hours! You taught me to take pride in my work and be grateful for each and every opportunity when people believe in you.
That was so long ago-- feels like several lifetimes now. I wish you could see how much that groundwork of ethics and thoughtfulness on the job... has helped me to prosper in my television career.
Often when people get divorced, the families of those ex-spouses lose touch but, you on several occasions kept track of me. Thank you for loving me and showing me ways to be successful in life, both personally and professionally. You are missed.
And, as we near another anniversary of your death, know that you continue to inspire me. Love, Harris Kimberley Faulkner

I worked with Eddie from 1981 to 1985 at Phillip Morris in San Francisco, CA. Each year, on the Anniversary of 9-11, I think of Eddie and the good times we had working together. I remember Eddie bringing his son out from Texas to work with him and the fun we had betting on 49er football games. My thoughts are with you, Eddie.

Eddie was a caring, respectful brother that I am glad to say our lives at Tolleston High touched each others' and determined the roads we would travel in this life until God calls us home. You will never be forgotten. I often remove the 1965 yearbook from it's resting place and wonder where they all went. Perhaps I will see them as I am sure I will see you on the other side in God's Heaven.

Rest In Peace, Brother

I have known Eddie Dillard since I was growing up in Gary, Indiana. I knew his brother, Andy Dillard. The last time I saw Eddie was in Gary, Indiana at our 25th high school reunion. Eddie was a wonderful friend during those early years.

My heart and mind are in blessing for Eddie.

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!

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.
