I did not know you, James. But you, and all the others who died, live in my heart. I look up at the clouds and see you there, hear you in the whisper of the wind, see you in the twinkle of the stars, feel your soft touch in the silver moonlight. I did not know you, but I will always remember you.

Thinking of you this morning, James. Sorry we had not met in life. It seems you were very special. May God keep you and yours in the palm of his hand.

Andy was my first friend when I lived in Chicago. At the time ( Nov. 1968) Andy was just a baby, but I would walk past his window, and he would smile and wave. Just as he did throughout his brief life, he made other people feel good.

Whenever I think about the terrible events surrounding 9/11, I think of Andy and his family Sally, Wally, Christen. My prayers, and thoughts are with you all.

Wir beide haben uns nie persönlich kennengelernt. Aber Deine Geschichte hat mich sehr berührt, als ich Dein Foto bei Deiner damaligen Verlobten sah. Was ich aber nicht verstehen kann ist, dass Sie 2004 neu geheiratet hat und 2005 schon wieder nen anderen hat. Sei froh, dass Du sie nicht geheiratet hast. In Gedanken aus Germany

Andy was a former boyfriend of my daughter...and later her best friend.  His smile could light up a room. He cared about all he loved and loved him.  There is a hole in my heart since that day...we miss him so much

I saw Rachels picture in The Observer on Sept. 16/01, ever since I have wondered how I could ever get in touch with her and offer a friendship, only emails. If this note is ever seen by Rachel she can write to pasamayo1900@yahoo.com
I hope this comes a reality.

I am from Salem Oregon, and our paper on September 14, 2001 had a heart-wrenching picture of Rachel Uchitel on the front "searching for her missing fiance".  I've always wondered her story, their story, and how she is now.  I cried over this picture at least a dozen times over the past few years and as I pull it out of my box again today, I cry for her and what she went through.  You and your family has been in my prayers and will continue to be forever because I'm sure your memories will not be forgotten.

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. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
