He was a great man.

My mom just emailed me about this site, so it is my first visit here.... I knew Bobby from all of the wonderful summers we spent growing up in Ocean City, NJ. He was the best of friends with my younger brother, Blaise, and younger sister, Dana. He was blonde, beautiful, kind, and really funny with a smile that instantly put you in a good mood and an energy that lifted spirits wherever he went. I remember laughter and friendship and joy. I remember him coming over to our house and telling stories that made us laugh until we cried. I remember Bobby with my brother and the rest of the guys being silly, cracking jokes, playing games, and planning parties. I remember Labor Day weekend being so much fun that you never wanted to miss it.... Sadly, I was unable to make it to OC for Labor Day 2001, so I didn't get to see Bobby. Shortly thereafter he was gone, and we are left with a void in our hearts.... But every summer I visit Bobby's bench at 16th Street, and I remember.... And I say a prayer.... And I know that I will never, ever forget....

Robert Joseph Coll, also known as Bobby, was a sweet, caring person who helped everyone around him. He had a short life, but he had a great life, and we celebrate his life on the day of 9-11. Life would have been different if that day hadn't happened, but that day brought all of us closer, and we knew that Bobby would always remember us, and we would think about him in our hearts and never forget him. He put his life aside to help someone in need, and that makes him a hero to everyone who knew him. If you knew Bobby, you would know that, if you needed help, he would be there for you no matter what. My family has enjoyed reading all of these comments because I am actually Bobby's daughter, and we loved him so much and will never forget him. Thanx.

I was walking the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ and saw his name on a bench. My nephew Bobby Mcilvaine, age 26, also died at the towers. Now each time I pass the bench, I stop and say a prayer for the two Bobbies and our families.

I am reading this memorial page to Robert J. Coll, and wondering if he is a relative of mine I have never met. Coll is not a common name.

My heart breaks for the victims of 9-11, on the planes, in the buildings and those who witnessed firsthand, and those who watched on television...all victims!

Last seen climbing up the stairs of Tower 2 helping others up along the way. He was unaware that this was suicidal. This hero along with others with him went to work as usual and disappeared. A worker who survived described him as blonde, blue-eyed, and handsome. The instant Tower 2 started collapsing, its upper section of floors above the imapact zone tilted toward the east. Things inside fell from tables and shelves, rolled down floors, and slide across rooms and hallways into desintegration. Rumbling, cracking, and violent shaking. Then blackness.

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.
