Best friends in grade school- years that formed us. Took a Cub Scout trip up the Hudson with his good and gentle dad. Spent the clear blue day, not unlike 9-11, at West Point. George was not the type to run and jump (though he could outrun everyone in our class). He climbed a tank slowly with a respect that I now see precocious in a young boy. His smile was one of real joy, a smile only dampened once in eighth grade when we heard something about Cuba and some missiles.

George taught me my first piece on the piano with an unusual three fingered bass (thumb, pointer, and middle) that I still use today. We went to different high schools and sadly never saw much of each other after that. But he is undeniably part of me now. I will remember his clear eyes, sharp mind, and the spring in his step that came from his buoyant spirit.

We can only wonder of the private terror he faced and I still find my 12 year old self reaching out in a timeless world to rescue my 12 year old friend. But time is real and despite the violence, these ten years have at least allowed me a softer view that I find captured in these words from Joyce’s Ulysses:

“Frail from the housetops two plumes of smoke ascended, pluming, and in a flaw of softness softly were blown.”

May his spirit continue to blow softly upon us all.

George was a classy guy, great colleague and showed me a few tricks in the business. Thinking of him and his those he left behind.

I found out that George had died in the 9-11 tragedy when we were researching our fellow classmates for our 40th high school reunion in 2007. Needless to say, I was so saddened by the news because what I remember about George in high school was that he was nice, kind, smart, gentle, and just a great guy. I remember this about him as if it were yesterday, and we were 'patrolling the halls' :-) together ... so vivid are my memories of him. All my love from my heart ... to you his family for your and our loss.

Thinking of you each time 9/11 is mentioned. George was a very nice person.

I am so sorry for what happened to these people. It is a tragedy. I almost lost my father as well. He is in our prayers!

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.
