I knew Paige in 1998-1999 when I worked at the Salvation Army Divisional Headquarters in Boston. I was the administrative assistant for Major Ronald Foreman and she was a participant in one of the Army organizations. Whenever a meeting was coming up, it was my job to call all the members and let them know. Ms. Farley-Hackel was always so kind and friendly and I always looked forward to speaking with her. Once when I was very busy preparing for a large event she even offered to help me even though it was not her responsibility. She was so lovely and always lit up a room with her personality. Today I happened to think of her and Googled her to see what she was doing these days. Of course I was shocked and saddened to see what came up. All these years and I never knew of her senseless death. I only knew her so briefly, but here, thirteen years later I happened to remember her; that alone speaks volumes about the kind of lady she was. I am glad to see that there is a Salvation Army park named in her honor. My sympathies to all her family.

I met Paige in 1971 in Switerland when she was on a high school ski trip. I was the guide for her group and was absolutely impressed by her zest for life, leadership qualities,infectious laugh and smile. It was a short time 40 years ago but Paige certainly made a lasting impression on me. My deepest condolences to her family.

I loved Paige most of all for how happy she made my Uncle Allan. He so adored her. Everyone did. Her sense of fun, her rhythm, her laughter were all infectious. She was young in spirit, young at heart and always very glamorous. My children and I will always remember the night she spent with us in Philadelphia. We loved that her favorite part of dinner were the chip cookies!
In loving memory,

Paige, we miss you. You were such an inspiration, someone who really "walked the walk". Your kindness and smile are always with us. My daughter, who was just a baby when you left us told me that you are in heaven and always with us. Through the loving eyes of my daughter, I feel your spirit here.

I am so touched by your story. I wanted to take the time to honor your memory on this very sad day.

To Paige and Allan,
I was your massage therapist for several years. As today is the 10th year, I thought I would share some of my thoughts. The loss of Paige, is the los of a wonderful relationship that only those people who knew both you had the privilege to see. As a couple, Paige and Allan encouraged inner growth, a deeper commitment in the most loving terms from one another, and it was a privilege to watch the two of you work together.

On 9/12 when the flight lists were published, my heart sank and for years I have thought about the loss of this beautiful and unique relationship.

Two weeks ago, I was in NYC and looked up at the new building and I thought, "With every floor, Allan is one floor closer to Paige."

I heard your name being read on TV during the live ceramony at the WTC site today. It caught my ear because my baby niece (1 year old) has the same first, middle and last name as you. My family has never met you, nor do we know your family, but maybe it will comfort them today to know that there is a happy, adorable baby girl running around florida named Paige Marie Farley <3 you are in my thoughts today

I made a donation to the California State Employed Firefighters Association after the tragedy and received a candle to light every year. It came with a card (I have it in my hand and am reading it now - "In Memory of Paige Farley Hackel, Spiritual Counselor, American Airlines Flight 11". I lit it that Christmas and on the anniversaries of 9/11. I often think of her and wondered with the 10 year events going on if I could find her on the internet. Here I am and wish I had done this sooner. I have always wanted to tell the family I honor and appreciate Paige, I never met her but I feel her spirit.

I still remember you Paige. This day, ten years after your senseless end of life on this earth, you are still in my thoughts and heart.

Saw your name in memorial at end of old Wayne Dyer VHS tape. Thought I should take the time to remember you.

I was so very happy to have known Paige but sadly for too short a time. She was a beautiful, generous and kind woman and was an inspiration to me as well as many others. My long delayed condolences to her family. She will be remembered always.

Just wanted to let you know that I wear a silver bracelet with your Paige Fraley Hackels name on it- we made a donation to 9/11 fund efforts and we received 2 bracelets- one was Paiges name - I pray for her often. I am a mother of 4 living in Orange County California and wish you well.

God be with your friends and your family,

Lori Jackson

My dad knew Paige. They went to grade school together. They used to walk home together. He said that she was really nice. Rest in peace, Paige.

Thinking of your bright spirit, amazing smile and tremendous heart.

Dearest Allan and family,

I was married to Norman Levine, who worked for Allan Hackel at one time.... I want you to know that I have always kept beautiful Paige in my thoughts and prayers every year. She was a graceful, wonderful woman and a role model to others. Her ability to make others feel welcome in her world was a delightful trademark of hers. She was kind and generous to a fault. I think of you all and hope with a tender heart that you are well.

Dear Paige,
I remember you bringing lunch to Allan when I worked in his close-knit office. Every time I saw you, I thought, she is one classy lady. I admired your positive energy, smiled at your laugh, and witnessed the love that you exuded. To this day, my heart still goes out to your loved ones. Memories of your spirit truly live on.

Paige ... my godmother <3

I'm honored to be the goddaughter of such a wonderful and renowned woman. My mother and I think of you and miss you every day. The picture of you holding me at my christening sits in a frame on my mantle. And the bunny rabbit with the story book you gave me saying, "I love you this much," has been passed down to my daughter. You are so missed and so loved.

Your goddaughter,

*** Posted by Melissa on 2010-09-09 ***

I knew her in the late '70's and early '80's while working in Boston. I'll never forget her generosity, candour, and humour. Always on life's high. She taught me the basics of skiing and much about life—not to mention how to be a better person.

I was devastated when I searched for her name on Google and found out that she was in that dreadful crash. I've often thought of her and the great laughs we had. Here's to you, Charlie Farley; the world's a sadder place without you.

I have one photo of Paige and me. She attended my birthday party in Boston before I moved back to LA. Paige was amazingly cheerful, strikingly responsible, and incredibly generous. I always loved how she'd calculate how many 24s a person had put together; she was so thoughtful ... always thoughtful. I think about her often, and I tell my students each year about her courage and loveliness in the world here. I know that she will always be in the sparkle of a star ... always something to wish on and be hopeful about ... always someone who knew the value and depth of one's soul. I miss you, Paige, and I will be looking for you in the stars and in the light.

As the anniversary of this horrific event nears, I realize just how often I think of Paige and remember her husky voice, her eternal optimism, and her simple joy for life. I guess you never really know how much one person has touched your life until they are gone or much time has passed. For me, it is both. I think of you often, Paigey-Poo, and always with a smile.
