Poor Kevin, taken before his time. But we can take comfort that he is still around, in the air we breathe, things we can see and touch, and in good deeds that are done. I didn't know Kevin, but his story is very human and valid. How would we have coped with the terrible situation Kevin found himself in? Hvil I fred, Kevin. Rest in peace, Kevin.

Thank you for your bravery, solitude, and dignity. Rest in peace.

I've heard your phone call from that horrible day. I'm 15, and I think I wasn't ready to hear something like that.
The way you died was a nightmare, and was just one cry that made me feel hollow and afraid of what could come to me tomorrow. I didn't even realize the pain of all people who suffered in this catastrophe. I just can't deal with it; it's very, very sad. I hope you are in heaven, smiling, with God taking care of you. It's 5:27 a.m now, and I can't sleep thinking about it. I may just watch T.V. to calm down. I hope I can get as brave as you. From another Kevin out there, blessings.

It is with a heavy heart that I felt the need to search for Mr. Cosgrove after hearing the tape of his final moments. I feel terribly saddened for his family: It must've been (and I'm certain still is) unimaginably hard for them. The only thing I can say is that I, for one, will try to live every day a little more aware of how precious life is after this. God bless you.

I lost my mom and dad in the south tower. I listened to your call for the first time today. God bless  your family.

Rest in peace.

Rest in peace. God bless your family. My heart is with you.

Difficult to hear your message. My Brother was also in the South Tower, contract to AON.... Our last call from him was also on 105. God Bless your children.

Your last words "Oh God ... Oh!" on the YouTube tape that I heard were the defining moments of when you faced true evil in its face. We can only imagine what it must be like to have the walls crashing in on you and the floor giving away from under you ... but you actually had to suffer that for no fault of yours. R.I.P., Kevin.... I am praying that your family can live each and every dream of yours that you could not live to fulfill.... This tragedy has only affirmed my faith in spreading the message of peace and love.... Like a butterfly's wings can cause a cyclone, I am hoping that some day my voice will help change this tide of hatred to love.... Till then, friend, ... rest in peace.

With all the confusion since September 11th 2001, it seems easy to forget the poor people who lost their lives on that day. It easy to forget that this was a human tragedy more than anything else. I'm not a sentimental person, nor am I one to leave comments like this; however, I heard the recording of Mr Cosgrove's last moments in the tower that day, and I couldn't help but admire his courage and selflessness. He made sure to mention the names of all who were with him and spoke of his kids and that he had reassured his wife that he was OK. This man is a true hero. I was breathless and crying by the end of the tape. It was just heartbreaking. My best wishes and condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

A great man, and seeing that video was the scariest thing, and I wish the best to his family and friends. Nothing hurts more than losing someone. R.I.P., Kevin Cosgrove.

What a brave man Kevin Cosgrove was. I'd not heard this tape until today, and it brought me closer to the final second of the tower falling than I'd ever been. God bless his family and friends who must miss him like mad. And God bless this country.

My heart goes out to Kevin's family. When I listened to that call, my heart broke, and I just cried for him. I never met Kevin Cosgrove, but I will never forget him.

*** Posted by Robin on 2008-06-14 ***

Absolute heartbreak. The first I heard the tape was last night, May 26, 2008. I cannot describe to you the sadness I am feeling for this man and his family. My heart is with you. I can only hope that his family can live the way Kevin would have wanted them to live. All my respect and compassion.

Dear Kevin and his family,

I'm Cleo, and I'm 13. I heard your audio tape from the south tower. It really hit home how bad it was in there, and I heard you say, "I'm not ready to die. We're young men." And I'm so sorry that you did pass away. And you also said you had young children. I'm so sorry you passed away, Kevin, I really am. My heart goes out to you and your family. I hope you did not suffer too much, but I know it must have been so hard. Kevin, I love you, you showed me how bad it really was in there, and I'm so sorry you can't read this.

I love you,
Cleo xxx

I will never forget that tragic day as long as I am alive. My heart goes out to the Cosgrove family. Kevin will always be a hero, and from time to time I play his phone call because that's my way of saying millions of Americans were by his side, and we will never forget Kevin, we will never forget the jumpers, and we will never forget the innocent people who perished on 9-11-01!

*** Posted by Adam D on 2008-05-16 ***

Words are so inadequate to describe this tragic situation: What do you say? That this should never have happened to Kevin? That he should still be with his family? That his family should still have him? Obvious statements, but they are so true. I hope God is looking after you and your family now. Rest in peace, mate.

I love you, Kevin. Your call sent chills down my spine and reinforced how horrendous the 9/11 attacks were. I send my deepest and strongest condolences to the families and friends who have lost loved ones in the World Trade Center. The long time between the plane crash and the collapse must've been a living nightmare. Kevin, I want you to know that I will never be as brave as you were.

Hi Kevin,

I'm your neighbor Anthony, and I live a couple of houses away from you. You've got beautiful children and a terrific wife. Your wife Wendy is doing an awesome job on your house. I pass it every day. You're my 9/11 hero. You would've made a great neighbor, and you still are in my heart. You'll make it through, I promise. I miss you.
