I lived across the street from Vinnie. We grew up together with his two sisters and two brothers. Vinnie was the middle brother and the prankster. He was funny and mischievous. We were the same age, but I was closest to his oldest sister, Maureen. The kids on the block played outdoor games as much as we could. We drifted as he went to Catholic school and I to public school. After marriage, we would occasionally see each other when we would each visit our parents. Ironically, Vinnie even went to high school with my husband, Richard, and they knew each other through school. I miss him, knowing I will never run into him again at our parents' houses. I wish his family well. I see Vinnie's mom quite often. She is a remarkable woman. Her heart is always open; it runs in the family. We will never forget you, Vinnie. Until we meet again....

I only recently learned that I share the last name with one of the heroic firemen who lost their lives during America's darkest hour. Not only will this be a source of pride for me, but will always cause me to pray for his family and that somehow, some way we are able to find a positive result from this crisis and humanity moves forward for the greater good of all.

I had the opportunity to visit NYC in April, 2002, and quite by chance stumbled across Ladder Station 8 in Tribeca where Lt. Halloran was based. Everything was so fresh and painful then, as I'm sure it still is for you now, but I just wanted you to know that it was an honour to visit the station and talk with the people who knew and worked with him and I still treasure the shirt I bought in his honour at the station. (5-5-8087 on the sleeve). Of all the thousands of items of memorbilia that came out of 9/11 I feel fortunate to have something so personal and meaningful that relates to a real live wonderful person. Thank you for sharing him that little bit with me. Coming up on five years now since that awful day, you should know that the terrible loss of that day still weighs on everyone and those lost will never be forgotten.

I did not know him as a firefighter, just as the most wonderful dog groomer known to man. I remember him talking about doing dog grooming full time when he retired. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

God bless you.

Last year I read the article in Real Simple magazine, and I haven't been able to get the family out of my head- they are in my prayers. I saw the picture of Phelan in People magazine this spring- she looks like her brothers! How proud he would have been.

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.
