Myself and my brother Greg were very close and remain so to the Watson family. We spent most of our time with Jim, and alot of that in their basement making music. The best thing was if you loved one Watson you loved them all. The other thing was if you were there that often you were treated like one of the family. Which meant Mrs. Watson would yell at you like one of her own. I miss Kenny and I am happy to have the memories.

I never met Kenny, but I know his mother. She and my mom go to church together in West Virginia. They're really nice people, and my thoughts go out to them today.

I knew Ken, but probably not well enough. He really seamed like a great family guy. Someone always happy and willing to help. He should not be forgotten.

Hi, Kenny,

I'm not exactly sure what to say, really. I was still only in the first grade when I heard of the news, and I honestly don't remember ever meeting you or hearing of you. But I just want to say that I love you. For the past two or three years, I've come to remember you every time September 11th came around. Yes, I admit, I always thought your name was Kevin up until now that I asked my mom, but still, you were in my heart, and always will be. I love you, Kenny.

From your cousin Abby.

Kenneth was from my hometown, Smithtown, NY. He was a noble firefighter with a wife and five children. He was a very generous man, and I knew he was willing to put his life on the line to help others that day because it was his job and his destiny ... even if it meant he was going to die. I know his absence is a very horrible thing. But here is a man everyone can be proud of because he saved other people's lives. May you rest in peace, and please watch your wife and children grow, Kenneth. :'(

Hi, Kenny,

This is Mrs. Colby. As you know, my beautiful John is with you in your new home. I will never forget that day ... John sitting there like a zombie waiting to hear any news about you and our Jimmy ... and when we did, he cried as if he lost his own.... I will never forget your sweet, jovial face as you helped us with our rebuilding of our home ... and how our Gabrielle at the ripe old age of 10 had a sweet and mad crush on you ... as I will never forget our sad and brave Jimmy Colby escorting the fire truck that held your brave and heroic body ... as I long as I live I will never forget 9/11 or my husbandís son proudly escorting you to St. Pats in Smithtown ... and now, my dear sweet boy, you are buried about 100 yards from my John.

I have thought a lot about the attacks that "We" the family of the US faced on Sept. 11th. My husband and I went to a memorial web-site and found that we could order "remembrance" bracelets. Since my maiden name is Watson, I was drawn to ordering a bracelet that reads "KENNETH WATSON FDNY THE WTC SEPT. 11, 2001". I take my bracelet out everyday and say a special prayer for the family and friends who lost Kenneth and wear the bracelet often, but I am sure to wear it every year on Sept. 11th. My heart goes out to Kenneth's family for the loss that they suffered. Please don't think that Kenneth will ever be forgotten. He is amongst a large group of heroes that America should NEVER FORGET. GOD BLESS YOU!

I would like to say "thanks" to Kenny for being a hero. Hereís a funny story: some one gave me a T-shirt with his name on it, and I have been wearing this shirt for some time and never took the time to read what was written on it except FDNY. I just want to say to friends and family of Kenny that your are so lucky to have known a real hero!

Kenny was my childhood neighbor whom I fondly remember growing up with, playing games in the summer and snowball fights in the winter. He will be FOREVER remembered and missed!

Since I was widowed in 2003 I have postponed the grieving process. I have been posting on a good site and I am building a connection with others who are grieving.

Yesterday for some reason I felt drawn to the 9-11 bereaved.

Today I found myself here....and since my maiden name is Watson and my family originally came from the U.S. I decided to type in my name Watson in the search

If there had been more than one person named Watson...I might not have felt the confirmation I feel now.

I grieve 9-11 and it's overwhelming....now perhaps it will become more managable....now that I have found my 'little brother'....the brother I never knew before...I want to know him 'now.'

As someone has previously said.....we are all 'related' after 9-11.

i lost my brother and my boyfriend on september 11th. I know how you feel and I give you my sympathy. he is in a better place.

*** Posted by merrisa watson on 2006-10-04 ***

Dont know if somewhere down the line we could be related, but on 9/11/01....we all were related.

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.
