Me and Ricky were friends for as long as I can remember, from before kindergarten till adulthood. My memories could fill this space 100 times over, and thats just the good ones, what a great guy. You may be gone but never forgotten my friend. I stop by the Plainedge H.S. memorial almost every wed. night when I go to visit my parents and say a prayer for you and your family. I hope you can hear me. Rest in peace my friend. your pal, Joe.

Rocco and I were in the same graduating class of 1970 at Plainedge High School, on Long Island. He was one of a large group of school buddies that met together and enjoyed good times. I remember he enlisted in the Army right out of high school and served his country with honor. He was a gentleman and a family man. Though our paths drifted after graduation, we'd hook up at high school reunions and laugh about old times. I was deeply saddened when I heard of his fate at the Trade Center. My thoughts and prayers for him and his family surface each time I remember that infamous day. Rest in Peace, Rocco.

He was one of the nicest and friendliest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and growing up with. Ricky and I go back to 1960.... I will never forget him.

Rocco (Ricky),

I'm still missing you buddy. I hope you are at peace and looking down on us all.

It's hard to believe six years have passed since that tragic day. You're in my thoughts and prayers each and every day. God has blessed you with eternal life. Until we meet again, my friend.

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.
