Nick, On this Ash Wednesday  my emotions are so out of control.  I am weepy, angry---not alot makes sense.  Waitimg in line for ashes this am I recall the day I went to the funeral home to see what was left of you--your right hand --no fingers--at least I got to hold it for a moment  ---strange that I recognized the feel.  Today on Ash Wednesday we are all to remember we are all just dust and soon to be again.  I guess in the  whole picture I won't be away from you that long but  I only hope that during what ever time I have left I can "get my act together"---you were certainy No saint but  today I remember once again how you served everyone---your family, clients, friends---you Always Gave and never expected anything in return.  If I can be half as giving as you were I will count myself lucky.  Please help me,Nick to do whatever I am supposed to do here so I can finally  go home.  I love you, Patrice

Another year---I think the events in SE Asia finally shook me out of my feeling sorry for myself---Nick, My loss of you is and always will be horrific and devastating---but at least I had a roof over my head and  food and water--I look at those poor people and recognise the look on their faces---they are still in shock--how it will get worse once "reality" of their loss really hits them.  If I can help out at all I want to be there---let April happen--You were Always so giving--If I can be half as good as you, I will count myself lucky.  I hope to dedicate everything in your name and memory.  You are so loved,Patrice

Oh, Nick, This is so very hard. The holidays are so very different without you---everything is different--Not good. You would have been watching the Steelers---yelling for "the Bus" We would have been to Donna's on Christmas and my family---now there is nothing---It doesn't even feel like Christmas without you.  Please give me a sign.  I love you, Patrice

Christmas Eve---someone reminded me that it has been 4 Christmases that have past without you---Can't believe it! Oh, Nick, You never liked this holiday and now that you aren't here, I  dread it also---It has not been a good year---Reality has hit hard-too hard.  I stare at our pictures--it seems as if every memory just happened--that this is just a terrible nightmare. WE would have been in Franklin Lakes right now---I know you would be nudging me to get going on the presents.  Tomorrow we would be driving to Donna's and you would be complaining about the traffic---what I wouldn't give to have you here. Merry Christmas, Nick. Please give me a Christmas present--a dream would be nice--or even your signal that you are near. I love you, Patrice

Thanksgiving---Your  favorite holiday---This one is a killer for me---I miss you more this year than ever---I remember how you used to love to cook everything and spend the day watching the games and  eating.I miss you, Nick--My heart is so broken yet I am so thankful I had you in my life ---what a wonderful gift you were.

Hello, my Love and  my Heart,
Another month has gone by---Donna  sent more pictures and your family is so Beautiful.  How you would have gone nuts over Nicolette!!!!  She is so very Beautiful!! I know wherever you are, you are just beaming over her and watching over all of us.I know how happy it must make you to know that finally all is well with all of us. So much has happened and yet nothing has happened to change how deeply loved you still are to so many--most of all Me. I smile when I feel you around me, (and hopefully I won't be committed to a looney bin as I believe you are with me every moment of every day).  Please keep with me and send me  those signs, I love you, Nick

How to describe the person--the loss---the pain?  Nick was The Best!  Everyone loved him  He was so very generous to everyone---with his time -with his smile---with his love-with his money --with his knowledge---with everything --He was so giving  Everyone wanted  his time---to be around him--He made people feel special and happy.  He loved his family--he loved golf---his friends--his life.  I believe he is still with me  I love you ,Nick

On the eve of the most horrible day, emotions are so high and so low---rather than focussing on me and the terrible loss and pain I feel like it happened yesterday, I want to focus on you---Nick, I never heard a petty  word from your lips, you were so very generous in everything you did for so many people---you were so giving--so happy---so nice to everyone,  the love of so many people's lives---so special in every way. I wonder where you are now: do you finally realize  how much you are still loved?  Are you happy and ok?  I just want tomorrow to be over--I don't want to focus on that horrible  horrible day--Nick, you are so loved.  My heart is with you wherever you are, Love,Patrice

Dear Nick,  This is the week we would have been in Saratoga--one of your favorite times of year--I remember how you loved playing every course there and how tough it was for me to get up in the dark  to play--what I wouldn't give now to have  just one more day with you--- instead I am running away again---running from NYC--I  miss you every moment of every day.  Much love, Patrice

Dear Nick- Today I saw the most beautiful rainbow in the sky--It was the first time I was able to see and appreciate beauty since 9-11. It scared me a little as in a strange way I don't want to "get on without you"  I only hope that wherever you are, you were able to see the same rainbow and smile at me.  I love you, Patrice

Nick, I ache today for you.  A sign would help.

Arriving back home--without you to share everything that has been going on---I still feel like  a big fish hook has gutted my insides and I am only an empty shell.  Donna was so thoughtful sending pictures---how proud you would be and how you would just Love Nicholette!!!  Seeing how happy your family was makde me feel good---how happy you would be--I hope you are somewhere where you can see all.  I miss you so very much,  All of my love, Patrice

Hi, Babe,
I miss you so much!  I don't feel you around me--where are you? I like to think you are with me--just in another dimension--an energy that is with me always but there are so many days and nights that I don't feel you.  I don't know what is real about where you are right now.  Please show me a sigh that you are with me.  I love you, Patrice

*** Posted by Patrice Regan for Nick Massa on 2004-06-29 ***

Dear Nick, Donna was so kind to send pictures.  All I could think about  was how proud you would have been seeing Ryan graduate-- seeing how big Brendan has gotten and how you would be going gaga over Nicholette.  They will miss so much by not having you with them.  I know wherever you are you will watch out for your entire family.  This is not fun being without you.  Much love,Patrice

My dear Nick,
Fathers' Day weekend---I know what we would have been doing this entire weekend and miss you so much.  Thank you for  being in my heart and mind all of the time. I hope that you are pleased with everything you see wherever you are.  I love you, Patrice

Dear Nick, Please give me a sign that all is ok. I love you, Patrice

On this Memorial Weekend  you are so remembered!  We would have opened the Monmouth box--You are always with me--I love you so,

I miss you so!  This time three years ago (can't Believe it has been that long!!!) we went to Kasey's graduation! I remember everything of that day--seems as if it was a month ago!--on the Friday (5/25 we played golf with Marco and Donna--Colts Neck and went to Monmouth that Sat---it can't be 3 years!!!  Why is this so hard to believe?  Why aren't you coming back?  I am beginning to freak--these 9-11 hearings are so maddening--I try to not even turn on the TV or look at a paper but it is so in my face--please help me,Nick.

Nick, Your grandaughter, Nicolette is so gorgeous---you would have just gone crazy over her--how I wish you were here! I know Donna will keep your memory alive but she will never know just how wonderful you are. She curls her toes the way you did when you were happy--I wish you could have held her but I know wherever you are you must love her so much.

Happy Easter, sweet prince.  I miss you every moment of every day.

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.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.

We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
