Hoy es un dia más que te recordamos, como siempre. Lo hemos hecho desde que pasó lo ocurrido, pero tu familia siempre te tenemos presente. No te conocía mucho, pero soy hija de Elizabeth (Tata). Así que descanses en paz. Dios te bendiga. Ahora estás en un lugar mejor.

[Ed. - Today is one day more that we remember you, as always. We have done it since what happened happened, but your family always remembers you. I didn't know you well, but I am Elizabeth's (Tata's) daughter. May you rest in peace. God bless you. Now you are in a better place.]

Today 9/11/08 I pray for you as I have always done since that terrible day 7 years ago. I never met you but when I found out that you had my same name I have felt a special bond to you and your family. I will always keep you in my prayers. May your family find comfort and peace within.

You will forever be a living memory. This memory is strong and very meaningful. We will always celebrate your purpose in our lives. Hoping you are feeling the love.

Muah and much hugs...!

Yo conocí a Lourdes y a John cuando eran niños y vivían con sus abuelos en Peñuelas, Puerto Rico. Su mamá se encontraba en New York. Caminábamos todos los días a la Escuela Elemental Webster. Tambien jugaba con nosotras su prima, Kilsen. Eramos muy buenas amigas y pasábamos los fines de semana juntas. Nos entristeció mucho el tener que separarnos cuando ella regresó a New York. Todavía recuerdo a sus abuelitos. El señor alto y delgado y la señora bajita y simpática. Creo que luego la volví a ver una vez más cuando regresó a visitar a sus abuelos. Siempre recordaremos dónde estábamos el 11 de septiembre de 2001. Mi esposo estaba asignado al U.S. Army ROTC y vivíamos en una base del Coast Guard en Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. En los días siguientes escuche el nombre de Lourdes Galletti por primera vez en años en un noticiero local. Llame a mi mamá y ella me confirmó que Lourdes murió en el terrible ataque a las torres gemelas. Todavía recuerdo a Lourdes siempre riendo. Parecía que sus pequitas saltaban cuando sonreía y tenía el pelo negro, largo y brillante. Siempre nos hacía gracia cuando hablaba español con su acento americano. Leí el libro que su mamá escribió y me impactó mucho. Me alegra, saber que aunque su vida aquí fue corta, vivió una vida llena de experiencias y ahora vive una vida plena al lado de nuestro Señor. Ahora vivo en Killeen, Texas y mi esposo se encuentra en Iraq. En este próximo aniversario del 11 de septiembre, como en los anteriores, seguire recordando a mi amiga de la infancia y a todas las víctimas de esta terrible tragedia. Soy maestra de escuela elemental y tendremos un acto de recordación donde les explicare a mis estudiantes el significado de todos los heroes del 11 de septiembre. Ellos sabrán que mi amiga de la infancia y mi esposo son parte de esos heroes. A los familiares de Lourdes les pido que sigan luchando como hasta ahora y nunca pierdan la FE. Nosotros seguiremos orando por ustedes tambien.

[Ed. - I knew Lourdes and John when they were young and they lived with their grandparents in Peñuelas, Puerto Rico. Their mother was in New York. We used to walk every day to Webster Elementary School. Her cousin, Kilsen, also played with us. We were very good friends, and we used to spend the weekends together. It made us sad to have to separate when she went back to New York. I still remember her grandparents. He was tall and thin, and she was short and nice. I think that I saw her one more time when she came to visit her grandparents. We'll always remember where we were on the 11th of September of 2001. My husband was assigned to the U.S. Army ROTC, and we lived in the Coast Guard base at Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. In the following days I heard the name of Lourdes Galletti for the first time in years on the local news. I called my mother, and she confirmed that Lourdes died in the terrible attack on the twin towers. I still remember Lourdes always laughing. It looked like her dimples jumped when she smiled, and she had long shining black hair. It was always funny to us when she spoke Spanish with her American accent. I read the book that her mother wrote, and it had a big impact on me. I'm glad to know that, though her life here was short, she lived a life full of experiences, and now she lives a full life at our Lord's side. Now I live in Killeen, Texas, and my husband is stationed in Iraq. On this next anniversary of 9-11, as on the previous ones, I'll keep on remembering my childhood friend and all the victims of this terrible tragedy. I'm a teacher in an elementary school, and we will have a commemoration, where I explain to my students the meaning of all the heroes of 9-11. They will know that my childhood friend and my husband are part of those heroes. To the relatives of Lourdes, I ask them to continue struggling like they have until now and never to lose the faith. We'll keep praying for you, too.]

I met Lourdes in elementary school. We went to St. Anselm's. We did our first communion together; I still have a picture of us together. Though we didn't keep in touch, I've always remembered her energy and smile. I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing. My heart goes out to all those who loved her.

Hello, I want to share this story about Lourdes Galleti Diaz with you:

I remember Lourdes clearly and I met her for the first time about a year before 9/11. It may even have been just a few months prior to 9/11. I'm not exactly sure. But at the time I was working at 'Mars 2112' on Broadway, where Lourdes used to stop  every once in a while. I remember her clearly because she had a 'glow' about her. What makes my memory of her even more memorable was that she even stopped by one time with her mom and introduced me to her. I thought that was very nice. During her visits, she would sit and talk to me. What also made her more memorable to me was that I really liked the name, "Lourdes." This is because I am very devoted to the apparitions and messages of Our Blessed Mother under her title of "Our Lady of Lourdes," France. I remember Lourdes had told me that she was at a point where she was ready to 'start over.' I remember this VERY clearly.

After I stopped working at Mars 2112, I moved on ... and the next time I saw Lourdes was on a "Missing" poster hanging at Most Precious Blood Church in Astoria, Queens. I was floored. I couldn't believe it. It felt like only yesterday that I served her at Mars 2112 and ... now she was on a missing poster at my church!

You bet that I stormed heaven with my prayers! She felt like a sister to me, even though I hardly knew her. Like I was her brother. May God Bless her precious soul. May God bless her family and friends.

Admittedly, I never got to know her that well.... I only talked to her for a few moments when she visited Mars 2112. But she left a really good impression on me, and it was not easy to forget her. I am glad to have met her, and I thank God for it.

Thanks for hearing me out,

Milli, mis pésame para ti y tu familia. Cuando John vino a nuestra familia tuve la oportunidad de conocer a Lordes–muy simpática y dulce. Dios y los ángeles la tienen cubierta con amor y muchas flores. Igualmente para ti, John, no puedo olvidar tu sonrisa y tu pelo largo y ondulado; dios me los bendiga y siempre en mi corazon.

[Ed. - Milli, my condolences to you and your family. When John came to our family, I had the opportunity to meet Lordes–she was very nice and sweet. God and the angels have covered her with love and lots of flowers. Also for you, John, I cannot forget your smile and your long wavy hair; God blesses me with them, and they’re always in my heart.]

I also went to Mable Dean Bacon H.S. with Lourdes (and her cousin Migdalia). I remember her friendly, sweet, big smile. I will never forget 9/11 or the many loved ones that passed on to a better place. May God Bless this family and give them strength and comfort. Lourdes, rest in peace. :-) Dios te bendiga.

I went to H.S. (Mable Dean Beacon) with Lourdes (and her cousin Migdalia). My heart goes out to Lourdes' family. She was a great person and friend, always a beautiful smile on her face. God bless you. May you rest in peace in God's loving arms.

Lourdes,

We were lunch buddies at Mabel Dean High School. I remember your laughter, your smile, and your friendliness. When Migdalia told me that you passed away, I began searching for a photo I had of us in the 9th grade. I finally found it the other day. It is one of my treasured memories. I'll never forget you.

Dearest Lourdes:
I did not know you and yet I pray for you each day, and most especially today 9/11/2007. When I found out 6 years ago that one of the victims of 9/11 had the same first name as myself, and was such a special person, you became my hero, and I have prayed for you every day since then. I read the notes from your mother, family and friends and through them I have gotten to know what a special person you were and how dearly you are missed. May God have you in a special place. Know that I will always pray for you and your loved ones.

*** Posted by Lourdes I. Crohare on 2007-09-11 ***

May you rest in peace, and may God keep you safe.

Hey, girl.... It's been some time, but you live strong in my heart. I will always commemorate your presence. I wore your name on my bracelet through the years. I have passed it on to my daughter, Chelsea. She wears it and dedicates her love for you always.

[Ed.- Hello, my heaven. I love you so much; I miss you so much. I miss your smile. It's been almost 6 Years since you left, but it seems like it was yesterday; you're always with me. You're alive in my heart. I know that you're together with your new family that little by little has made their transition: Tin, daddy, mommy, moncho, and your brother John. Your grandparents who love you so much, your uncles, and your brother. I just ask that you and and the other beloved beings be angels of light and protective guides for all those of us who are on this earthly plane. Some day we'll all be together. I love you beyond eternity. When you see dewdrops in the flowers of heaven, that's me, your mother who lets you know how much I love and miss you. Always take care of your brother, John, my son, watch over him so that he can walk with lots of light in heavenly paths.

You know, Lourdes, you have five little baby nieces and nephews, and Junito is already almost 14 years old. Take care of them from heaven just like your other two brothers who love you so much. Hugs to my parents, my brothers, to my son John and for you.

Your mommy ...]

I do not know this person. But I chose to do my report on her. For some reason her name stood out from the rest.
May her soul be at peace.

THIS MESSAGE IS FOR MY DEAR COUSIN LOURDES GALLETTI. 

JUST A FEW WORDS TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I MISSED YOU.  EVERY TIME I SEE SOMEONE SMILE AND SHOW THEIR GUMS RIGHT AWAY I THINK OF YOU. HOW MUCH WE USED TO JOKE ABOUT THIS. 
THE OTHER NIGHT I DREAMED THAT YOU VISITED ME AT MY ROOM.  YOU WERE SITTING BY THE WINDOW TALKING LIKE YOU USE TO.  I HAD TO GRAB YOU BY YOUR ARM AND DIRECT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.  PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR ANY MISUNDERSTANDING WE MIGHT HAVE HAD.  ONE THING I KNOW IS THAT I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.  I KNOW THAT ONE DAY WE WILL BE TOGETHER AND FOLLOW-UP ON OUR LONG CONVERSATIONS. 

LOVE YOU
CARMEN
