[Ed - My great heart-felt condolences to the Hernandez family! Norberto Hernandez is a Boricua [Puerto Rican] like me! It's very sad to lose a great human being and father! But now he's in a very special place ... in heaven with God looking down and taking care of them from above! Stick with God because He'll give you the strength to keep struggling along! Hugs and blessings! Rest in peace, Norberto! May God bless you!]

Cuando Un Amigo Se Va          [When a friend goes away]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
queda un espacio vacío          [it leaves an empty space]
que no lo puede llenar          [that can't be filled]
la llegada de otro amigo.      [by the arrival of another friend.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
queda un tizón encendido        [it leaves a smoldering ember]
que no se puede apagar          [that can't be put out]
ni con las aguas de un río.    [not even with a riverful of water.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
una estrella se ha perdido      [a star has been lost,]
la que ilumina el lugar        [the the one that illuminated the place]
donde hay un niño dormido.      [where there was a child fallen asleep.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
se detienen los caminos        [the tracks stop,]
se empieza a revelar            [the magic charm of wine]
el duende manso del vino.      [begins to be revealed.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
galopando su destino            [galloping to his destiny,]
empieza el alma a vibrar,      [the soul begins to shiver,]
porque se llena de frío.        [because it's full of cold.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
queda un terreno baldío        [an uncultivated plto of land is left]
que quiere el tiempo llenar    [that time wants to fill]
con las piedras del hastío.    [with stones of weariness.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
se queda un árbol caído        [a fallen tree is left]
que ya no vuelve a brotar      [that never stands again]
porque el viento lo ha vencido. [because the wind has overcome it.]

Cuando un amigo se va          [When a friend goes away]
queda un espacio vacío          [it leaves an empty space]
que no lo puede llenar          [that can't be filled]
la llegada de otro amigo.      [by the arrival of another friend.]

At the time the twin towers collapsed, I was only in P3 and didn't pay much attention to the news, but I do remember hearing from one of my friends that one of her relatives died in the towers. It must have taken so much guts for Norberto Hernandez to jump. May you rest in peace.

I've just seen the programme "11 Settembre salto nel vuoto" on Italian TV Sky. Words cannot explain my emotions at the moment. May you rest in peace, Norberto Hernandez.

I still remember you. You are a good man. Like they say, "When bells ring, an angel gets their wings." YOU HAVE YOUR WINGS.

stiamo vedendo le immagini di norberto in un programma televisimo trasmesso da sky. le dico che siamo molto dispiaciuti e vicini alla sua famiglia!

[Ed. - We saw the images of Norberto on a program transmitted on the Sky channel. I tell you that we're very displeased and [feel] near to his family.]

I saw a document on Swiss television about your father, husband, brother, son and friend. I believe he was a very strong and courageous man. He will be never forgotten. God bless him and his family.

I remember!

Je suis désolée de tout ceci et j'aurai toujours une pensée pour toutes ces personnes que l'on veut oublier mais qui ont fait preuve de tellement de courage.

[Ed. - I am very sorry about all this, and I will always think of all these people who could be forgotten, but who showed so much of courage.]

hola soy de españa y solo queria expresar mi mas puro pesamen a la familia de norberto. por muchas creencias que tengamos, nadie puede decir que los que saltaron ese dia se suicidaran, era una opcion respetable y logica ante tanta desesperacion, aun que este no fuera el caso de norberto. seguro que todas esas personas estan en el cielo, creo sinceramente que se lo ganaron por el sufrimiento que tuvieron que pasar. descansen en paz

As we have lost yet another hero, we will always remember what these heros did. God Bless!

*** Posted by Peggy Durham on 2006-09-27 ***

Just in the name of Courage! God bless this family.

*** Posted by stuart on 2006-09-23 ***

May your soul be blessed and may you always rest in peace... and all of the other people who left this world that day. And may God Almighty give your family, and the rest of the families, lots of strength and courage…

I am French, from Marseilles. I did not know Norberto but I am deeply touched by this horrible tragedy which struck your country. So much suffering, so much sorrow you must put up with! I lost my dad recently, and it is very hard, so I do not dare to imagine your pain! All my thoughts accompany you like for all the others. May Norberto find peace! God bless all of you!

My first name is Daisy, it is my true first name! I send you all the Daisy's of the world for Norberto

It missed an angel, it is for that that it left!

With all my respect

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.
