You're always in our thoughts and prayers....

Harry, I will never get over missing you. You and I had the best of times in our teenage years when we were able to hang out, go partying, etc. Not having any older brothers myself, when your oldest brother Robert married my older sister Vivian, I gained you, Henry, and Robert as brothers.

I remember life around you was hysterical. When we got together, you were the ultimate comedian.... You made everyone laugh with your joking humor. Especially me. Sometimes I'd get into a laughing attack and have to try to tell you to stop ... but NO — you just kept going on and on. I told you plenty of times to go into show business. You were that good!

I remember the day: I was at your home (I forget what floor) in the Projects, and we were by the the window.... We started joking and laughing, and then we noticed an album collection, and we just started flinging them out the window like Frisbees. We would fling stuff like Barry Manilow and laugh as we were doing it. That was a bust-up back then, as many other times were. Remember when you had your green dodge charger? Man, you thought you were so coooool ... and then one day you came to Queens to visit me: I was outside the house when you came around the corner, and s-n-a-p went your drive shaft, and you coasted to the front of the house. You were crushed, but it was hilarious. You even started laughing after a bit.

Ah, Harry, I don't know, man. I still miss you. When I went to live in California because of the Navy, you know, whenever I would get back to NY to visit, I would make some time to hang out with you and your brother, and sometimes stay overnight, much to the anger of my own family, because they knew I had a short time in my visits and it wasn't totally devoted to them.

Harry, I still have your voice recorded on an incoming message. You were scolding me for not talking to my parents or calling anybody on the east coast, because of some anger I had over something happening. I was never mad at you.

Anyway, the way you still remain alive for me is in my memories. I often think about you. I can't bear to look in the direction of World Trade Center anymore. I know your brothers have been to the site. But I can't do it still.

Harry, just so you know, for the past five years, I've been working for the company that produces the UAV Drones, and a while back I was able to have a US Flag flown on a UAV Mission within the plane itself. I was then given the flag and a certificate bearing your name, Harry Ramos, connected to that mission. In October 2010, I presented it to your oldest brother Robert. It now hangs on the wall.

Your wife and sons are doing fine. To me, your oldest boy is you reincarnated.... He is so like you, bro. And if he grows to have the sense of humor you had, I'll tell him like I told you ... go into show business.

Harry, you're a hero for what you felt compelled to do on September 11. In heaven, keep them laughing!

Forever in my heart and mind,
Your brother-in-law, Nelson

Well, what can I say about my brother that all these wonderful people havenít already said about you, brother? I am happy that I got to say good-bye to you for the last time when I dropped you at the train station. Your family and friends are proud of you. Well, Harry, see you in my dreams!

Love you, brother,
Henry Ramos

We never met; however, I met your widow in September, 2006 when I was a patient at the oral surgeon whom she was working for. She asked about my family, and I told her that my son had enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, and I was worried about him being deployed. And then I asked about her family, and she told me your courageous, selfless story of how you stayed behind to help someone when you could have easily gotten out of the building. I never saw your widow again; however, since the day I met her, I have never forgotten your name and your heroism. Thank you, Harry, for the sacrifice that you made, and may God bless you and your family.

Harry, I see your name just about every day when I pass your house, the street was named after you in your honor. I remember growing up w/ you in the bowling alley, I remember you as my neighbor, I remember catching the subway and train w/ you to the WTC every day on our way to work. Now I remember you as the hero you are! MAY GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL!

Dear Harry Ramos,
      As for me, you're my mother's cousin but I consider you as my cousin as well. I love the way people call you a HERO. You sacrificed your life to help someone else. I'm impressed. I don't remember meeting you but my mom says we have met. I met your sons Eugene and Alex. You're such a great father and they are wonderful kids. When people ask me if I know a hero from the World Trade Center, I will say, "Yes, my cousin was a hero." Words can't explain how much I feel today when people mention about this day. Today is the 11th year and you will never be forgotten. I love you and miss you my cousin.
          yours truly,
                Stacey Lopez

I will always remember Harry as the life of the party.

You are truly missed! You and your family are always in my prayers.

Harry was my neighbor. My Mom would send me over to his house to borrow his hose to water our, small, lawn. I was the kid that everyone knew, outgoing, talkative, and always helpful. I remember once Harry was cleaning out his garage and couldn't get his motorcycle back in, so I helped him push it. He was always honest and upfront. I miss him. I feel that since I knew him at an impressionable age I have learned things from him that became part of my personality.
Thank you Harry.
Thank you for being a positive role model in my life. As long as I live I'll never forget the Hero that lived next door.

When I first saw this documentary, as a Hispanic male, I cried like a little child, and I continue to cry when I think of it. Reading through the blogs of the many people who pay tribute his heroism evokes many emotions inside me. Mr. Ramos, I truly appreciate what you did for that disabled person whom you did not have to save. Being a disabled person myself, I truly appreciate what you did and will always have a special place for you in my heart. I believe that you made the ultimate sacrifice on that horrific day that will forever be entrenched in the minds of America.

Harry, I know that I never met you; however, I hope you are resting in peace. You are definitely a giant among men. Your family should definitely be proud of you and think of you each and every day. Mr. Wald's family should be indebted to you for your fortitude and service to mankind. Rest in peace, my Hispanic brother, knight in shining armor. I can honestly say that I would have loved to make your acquaintance. People like you are definitely a rare breed.

Uncle Harry,

Here we are on the eve on 9/11 once again and it still feels like it was yesterday. Words will never be enough to express what you meant to me and our family. When you passed, a piece of us all passed; especially my dad. Losing you (his younger brother) was the toughest thing he ever had to deal with till this day. We still talk about you all the time, and we still make fun of you every chance we get. Your best friend Victor came to see dad and I a few weeks ago and all we did was tell old stories about you all night laughing. It makes me extremely proud as your nephew and godson to see how many people you have touched all over the world. I have read through countless posts that people have placed about you, just from hearing about your story. If they only knew how great you were to be around on a daily basis. The last time I was in the WTC was with you, the night I celebrated with my co-workers right before I moved to Florida at Windows of the World, Latin Thursdays. You took time to meet me there after work with your nephew. You wished me the best of luck with relocating to Florida like a true loving uncle would. You will always have a special place in my heart. Give grandma and grandpa a kiss for me and tell them I love them. Dad, Eric, and I will be together tomorrow for the 9th anniversary in remembrance of you. Love you uncle Harry, you are a TRUE 9/11 hero!

Dear Mr. Ramos,

Hello. I was born in '96 and was around 5 or 6 when the September 11 attacks happened. So I don't really remember that day clearly. My father was born on September 11th, so it was his birthday. I was getting ready for Kindergarten or 1st grade when my aunt who lived across the street gave us a call and told us to turn on the TV. At first we thought it was an accident, but when another plane hit the south tower, it was clear. I've been studying about these attacks and learned about you. You are a true hero, Mr. Ramos. I pray for your family, and may you rest in peace.

You're always thought of.

I miss you. What you are is my hero. I watched that documentary, and I heard about you. Helping that man Victor, a complete stranger, was the awesomest thing I ever thought anyone would do. You are truly my hero. I miss you, buddy, and some day I will meet you to have your autograph!

I have had the honor of teaching your wonderful son Eugene twice. I just watched him graduate, and he is moving on to Seton Hall Prep. What a fine young man he has become, which I am sure is a reflection of you and his mother. Alex is also a sweetheart. May you continue to look after them and guide them from above. Thank you for giving us such special gifts; your boys are very special to all of us.

Hello. My name is Harry Ramos Hille. I am Brazilian, and I'm 22 years old.

I was here looking for people with the same name as me, and I found this hero named Harry Ramos, and I was very moved by his story.

I am honored to have the same name and last name. Like him, I hope one day to die as a hero and have thousands of people I admire and, even without knowing me, like me.

*** Posted by Harry Ramos Hille on 2010-06-24 ***

What you did was an amazing act of heroism, and may God forever keep your soul at ease. I am proud to share the same last name as such an amazing man. You are a role model to everyone, and I know you're sitting right next to God on a thrown fit for a king. God bless your soul.

I worked with Harry for about 5 years on Wall Street. Harry left such a mark on my life. I am forever relating stories about his kindness and chivalry. He was very down to earth and always had a smile on his face. I survived 9/11, but when I awoke the next morning and began to see the people with the posters of those missing and then I saw Harry's face my heart broke into pieces. I live in Florida now, but that time remains vivid in my heart and mind. God bless Harry and his selfless act and all of those that perished behind bravery and courage beyond our comprehension. I love you, Harry! xxoo

You're my hero because you didn't have to help Victor. You could have walked past him. But you're a good man, so Harry, can you do something for me? Rest in peace.
