I'm former CWO3 Boatwright. I was the family escort at the 9-11-2002 one-year anniversary memorial. Marie had an "extended" family, meaning her parents divorced. I was expecting there would be some "friction" with "two" families coming to DC in her honor. Quite the opposite happened. She was just a small part (but a very BIG, HUGE part) of her family that included two sets of parents, that BOTH loved and cared for her very much. Marie worked as, I think I'm going to say it right, an appellate lawyer for Navy Legal on the Navy Yard, with an office in the next building to mine. She would call and ask for service records on those sailors she was representing. Now, if anyone knows about military service records, being paper-based, micro-filmed, sometimes records didn't leave the ship the person was discharged from, or were sent to the wrong place and got misfiled there ... sometimes it took months to get those records to Marie—but she simply refused to accept that as an answer. She wanted the records "right now, today" or the world would hear about it. She was full of life—a real fighter.

I miss talking with her family. They put a park bench up in her honor. They never once despaired beyond hope. They simply loved her very, very much. It's been eight years. I won't forget any of them ... nor Marie.

Sorry for being long-winded.

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.
