My daughter and myself had the great honor of knowing Howie for four years prior to his death. I will never forget the kind man he was, fantastic son and brother. I still have pictures of family functions we all attended and I keep them close to me to remember all the good times I was able to share with him.

I knew Howard since the age of 11 years old, he was one of my brothers best friend growing up. As friends do part in life, Howard was a shinning examble of how hard work does pay off. He was a role model for me. He is deeply missed by me and my family.

I write this on behalf of everyone whomever knew Howie, especially our friends and family, as to know Howie was to love Howie. He had this amazing ability to make you feel good when you were around him. Good about yourself, good about life, good about everything. I guess it is because he was genuinely a good person. He will NEVER, EVER be forgotten. We all love and miss you Howie!

something about this morning made me remember Howie again.  Don't know the reasons, maybe was the calm, warm weather, maybe it was my son waking up early and giving me a big hug, maybe it is because i'll be in nyc come may. don't know exactly when or how feelings arise but needless to say Howie was a good friend and truly missed.

Howard was a friend of mine in grammar school and high school, for what it is worth. We hung out alot then, lot of laughs, and I can't believe to this day that he is gone. I cry all the time because of 9/11; people like Howard make me think of what we lost that day. That Allan Jackson song reminds me of you most because i never believed that you were there. Lots of love to you and yours...

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. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
