Michael was an exceptional individual. I played roller hockey with him when we were kids and it was always a pleasure being alongside him on the rink and hanging out after. He was a very special person and will always be missed.

Mikey is so missed, he was full of joy that was truly infectious. My dear childhood friend. I have fond memories of riding our bikes, skinning our knees, playing super heroes and dukes of hazard in your backyard, and taunting Michelle and Nancy for fun. such blissful innocence. You would sign the Oscar Myers bologna song at the corner store and score us free candy!
I think of you and your family often and pray for peace in your hearts. Every time I visit Nancy and the boys I wish you were there too, I know your watching over them. Thank you for your sacrifice. I miss you.

Love Kathy

I never knew Mr. Elferis, but I wear his silver bracelet. I am in Texas and am reminded of his courage every time I wear it. May God bless his family and friends.

My name is Phillip Jenkins, and on September 11, 2001 I participated in the Charlotte Firefighters Memorial Stair Climb. I carried a picture of Michael J. Elferis around my neck for all 110 stories. It was an honor to participate in the climb and remember a fallen firefighter.

When people look at the number of lives lost on that day they are horrified,but the numbers do not even begin to show how many of those that perished where the greatest human beings alive.Mikey was a leader,freind,coach,roll-model all rolled up into one!The last time I saw Mike it was a couple of blocks away from the world trade center about a year befor he passed and he played a practical joke on me that I will never forget.he was a police officer at the time and was in a dark patty wagon with his partner.His partner called me over as I was leaving a club "bombed out of my bird" and sayed Brendan we need a word with you!We have a file on you and explicet pictures of you with a old man having well lets just say a "Gay old time"!I was like what...i turned red as a stop light I couldnt believe wut I was hearing. The police officer in the front seat then told me to get in the back of the paddy wagon and when the door opened it was Mikey there laughing his ass off! I didnt now wether to choke him or laugh..then I remembered he is a cop,,, so we laughed for what seemed for ever and then some more.I vowed to get him back,but never had the chance!His impact on my life will never be forgotten!God Bless Mikey and His family! If there is a heaven Mikey I know Mikey is ther waiting for all us!

Mike,
It has been 10 years since you sacraficed your life to try and save other people. I am proud to say someone in my family was a hero that day. God Bless!

To Mike's loving family and friends;
I have been wearing Michael's bracelet since then end of September 2001 to honor the life of a brother firefighter. I have read every post at this page over time and now am moved to feel worthy to comment. He was the best of the best along side all the other 342 brothers. I look at them as the guardian angles that were sent to protect and take care of everyone that was lost that horrible day. My bracelet is worn from the years, but I will never take it off. My daily reminder that freedom is never free, but worth fighting for. That one life does make a difference to all that knew him. I pray everyday for justice to those who deserve justice and peace to those that deserve peace. He will always be missed even by us that never knew him in life but through you he lives on to tell his story, his contributions, his dedication, his professionalism, his passion and most of all his love for his family and friends.

Oh, and Uncle Joe and Aunt Jen's baby, Michael, is getting so big. He reminds me so much of you: always happy and loving. I hope he grows up to be the hero that you were. I miss you.

*** Posted by Melissa on 2010-08-28 ***

Uncle Mikey, I miss you. More than you could ever imagine, I need you really badly right now. I just don't know what to do, and I know you'd put me back on the right track. Mommy and Grandma miss you more than you know, my mom prays at your picture every morning. Please continue watching over us—and send butterflies every now and then, they make everyone think of you. Much love. <3 I'll see you soon, loooooooove you loserrrr!

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!
