I met "ace" 3/14/99 while we were visiting a hotel on Cape Cod. There were many people in line at the entrance, and I walked over to see what was happening. We had 2 sons who played hockey, and were strong supporters of the Bruins, having attended several games. I was thrilled to meet this popular athlete, who invited me to have a seat while I asked him for not 1 but 4 autographs plus another on a hockey puck which he graciously gave me. I was more impressed with the sincere interest he exhibited in asking me about my family, the sports my boys played, etc. I later went back to speak with he and his staff about what a kind and thoughtful man ha was. I had gotten many prof. Athletes signatures before as we are a strong sport family, but I can still remember telling our friends that day what a wonderful humanitarian person he was. We were deeply saddened to hear the shocking news of 9/11. I have kept the pictures, including the team pictures he signed for me in 1999, and now, in 2012 I made a decision to give my sons each a copy and my young grandson who started skating at 3 and wants to be a hockey player, with a biography about Ace, and I know that this will be the most significant and meaningful collectable they will ever own, as I deeply cherish mine.
It was a a great privilege to have been afforded the opportunity to meet and spend part of that day with such a truly special person, and I believe he would happy knowing my sons will have those autographed pictures displayed on the walls in their family rooms. May God Bless his family.

Went to many hockey games when he played for the Bruins Although he was in the penalty box a lot!, loved seeing him fly down the ice with that beautiful blond hair blowing. Bless his family and friends today on this 10th anniversary.

I did not know Ace that well---only during his brief years with the St. Louis Blues. Howver, he was always a gentleman. He always took time to meet and talk with his fans. He is and always will be missed.

I was a Ranger fan when you were playing. Essentially, though, we are all brothers, regardless of team colors. Rest in peace, Bro.

I was an avid Bruin fan growing up in a small town in Maine. I loved Ace Bailey and was so sad to hear that he was on Flight 175. I still have a picture I drew of him when I was 12 years old in his Bruins uniform. Rest in peace, Ace. You will always be remembered~

My prayers go out to all families affected by 9/11/01. I never realized Ace Bailey was on Flight 175. I remember when he played for The Red Wings. How very sad, so young and such a giving individual. Rest In Peace.

Lynnfield remembers. All Boston Bruins fans the world over will always remember "Ace" Bailey. He should have died of old age in obscurity with children and grandchildren (ice hockey players, all) at his bedside. Those nineteen followers of the "religion of peace" murdered him and all of the others.

Gone but not forgotten. Almost ten years after the tragedy, your story is still being told. And what a story! Your legacy is never ending:

We went fishing together with my buddies and your son.. we actually entered a tournament and won $500. We had a chance to know you guys just a short time and that was very nice.
We remember and pray to God that the world remembers this day forever and you will be remembered forever.
