Thank you for your heroism and perseverance. You and Pablo saved 70+ lives and gave your own. You are a true hero. Rest in peace.

I juat finished watching the 2 hour special on TLC on Heroes of the 88th floor. I must say Frank Martini and Pablo Ortiz working with you side by side. You are both heroes as you saved so many lives that day and did that without hesitation. Your courage and bravery will never be forgotten. May you both rest in peace. I really believe if you had more time that number would have been much higher. You are amazing.

As a teacher, I am always looking for examples of people who exemplify the best in human nature. I watched a special 9-11 TV program recently-I am sorry that I can not remember the name of the program- about heroes. The TV special included many people who despite the immanent threat of terrible death continued to help others. Two of those heroes highlighted were Francis di Martini and Pablo Ortiz. Their, deliberate, calm courage, and their sacrifice deserve to be remembereed and honored. I will honor them by teaching my students about their superior display of character on that 9-11 day of infamy.

Paul should be a happy guy to have a selfless hero for a brother. you should be proud of youself. people look up to you and praise you for the family members that you and Pablo saved. god bless you and I hope that god is treating you well.

I watched that special on tlc about mr. De martini and mr. Ortiz. In the face of great tragedy and danger these two men disregarded their own lives and headed towards danger instead of safety in hopes of saving more people. The last anyone saw of either of them they were still on the 78th floor trying to free a man stuck in the elevator. Such a great example of heroism. Thank u to both of the families for sharing their stories and letting us all know what are all capable of
