I did not personally know Eric; however, I feel like I did in many respects from seeing photos of him, reading letters he wrote to his wife (Emily), and meeting Emily and Eric's parents personally. That day my plane landed at Reagan National even as the Pentagon was being hit. For some reason, this Wisconsin gal ended up in the craziness of that day. Finally getting out of DC around 3pm that afternoon, my co-worker received a call that Emily had not heard from Eric yet. We went to Emily's house to contact hospitals, etc., and wait with Emily until her and Eric's parents arrived at 2am the next morning. During the weeks after 9/11, we made numerous visits to Emily and offered any help that we could. During that time, many cards, letters, and photos of Eric were viewed and read, including many of his and Emily's recent trip to Ireland. Even though I didn't know Eric personally, if he was anything like his parents or Emily, he was out of this world. I think of Emily, Fred, and Betsy often, and I hope that they find some happiness after having to live through such an ordeal.

I had not thought of Eric or a lot of the folks I went to school with in years until 9/11. From that day forward I have thought of Eric almost every day. Your service and bravery will be in my heart forever. Rest in peace, my friend, rest in peace.

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.
