Hi Barbara,

No, I sure don't have it anymore. Please email: cat99zr (at) aol (dot) com. Again, you and yours are in my daily thoughts.

Hello my Angel,

It's very early in the morning, and I couldn't sleep, so I thought I would just say "hello" to you and tell you how much I love you. It's so quiet right now, and I smile as I think of you. I was watching the sun come up, a thing I did so many times as I watched you leave for work. I remember that once you had to go in so early that it was still dark out. I kissed you goodbye and stayed outside to watch the stars fade away and see the sunrise. It's cool here this morning, and you can see the night sky is starting to look like fall. Are there seasons where you are? Or is it whatever you want it to be? Please be with me today, and I promise I will whisper to you what I hold in my heart.... I love you.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

My Darling Husband,

I am still feeling the sadness of the days that have past, so I will just sum it up by telling you that you live in my heart and always will. I miss you more than anything and will love you forever.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute that you gave to my husband every day by wearing the mercy band with his name on it. I wear mine every day in the hope that people will notice it and remember and pray. I, too, wore a POW band years ago until it broke in half. I never thought that I would someday wear one with my husband's name on it. I pray every day that people never forget all who were lost, but the sad reality is that many have forgotten. I am truly blessed that you are not one of them, and that you pay tribute to Steve every day. May God bless you and keep you safe.

I have been wearing a mercy band with Steven's name engraved on it since December of 2001. I'm still reminding people that we must never forget one of our victims of that tragic day. Years ago I wore a POW bracelet, and I was so glad they brought back the idea for these bracelets. jmhurt622 (at) hotmail (dot) com

My Sweet Angel,

Today is September 12th, and I am still feeling sad. I couldn't sleep last night because I watched many of the documentaries, just searching for answers. I felt so close to you yesterday, as if you were right by my side where you belong. And so now we head towards the end of the year, and I will celebrate our 21st anniversary. I hope you will always remember how much I love you.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

You don't know how much you posting means to my son Steven and myself. Steve was so very proud to be in the Navy and on the Bigelow. He attended the reunion that year and was so happy to have met everyone. They still send me the paper from the Tin Can Sailors, and my son reads and keeps everyone. We have everything of Steve's, and will never let any of it go. We have his uniform, jackets, hats, etc., and everything that reminds us of the ship he was so proud to be on. In fact the picture that I used at his memorial was one of the ones where he wore his cap with the ship's name and number on it. I am glad that you contacted me, because you knew him before me and you were his friend and can probably tell me even more about him. You would have been proud of the man he became, always putting others before himself as he did on 9/11. He is now on a poster that was developed called "Faces of The Brave". It can be seen on line and one of the pictures they used is the picture with his Bigelow cap on. He is one of 3 civilians included in this photo which contains all the policemen and firemen lost that day. As you can see, I loved him with all my heart and always will. My son and are are so happy that you contacted us. Please feel free anytime as we would love to hear from you. God bless and keep you safe.

My Love,

The seventh year anniversary has now come to an end. But this is only one day. I have been without you for 2557 days, and not a day has gone by that I have not thought about you, either with a smile or with tears. I smile sometimes because I remember the beautiful moments that we had together. But then the smile turns to tears as my heart refuses to accept that I will never have those times or new times like them again. I will never see your smiling face when I wake up in the morning or feel your kisses as we say good night. Each year, a numbness comes over me, making me feel as though I am back in 2001. I went to the memorial late this evening, so I could talk to you without all the people being there. It was quiet, and your picture looked up at me as if to say you were there with me. Were you there waiting for me in the silence of the night? Today was filled with so many tears, and it felt as though my broken heart fell into tiny pieces. This heart will never mend because I know that I was lucky to have my soulmate in my life. You were and always will be the only man I will ever love, and I try to do something every day to show you how much I still love you. I would give the world to be able to turn back time. I want so much to look into your eyes again, and kiss you good night, and smile at you every day of my life. I know that this is a wish that will never come true. How do I now turn the tears back into a smile for a while? I am not ready to go through the holidays and our anniversary again without you. Steven will be 20 soon, and since we lost you, he will not celebrate his own birthday. He is so filled with sadness without you because you were his best friend, and he loved you so much. I promise I will continue to write to you on here for as long as they keep this site. I love you more than ever, my angel.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

R.I.P., Uncle Steve.

Thanks, Barbara. You're correct that 9/15 would have been my one-year anniversary, but we have separated since June. He felt better off with other female "friends" ... and when I found out, I was crushed!

But you still inspire me, Barbara, that there is True Love out there. I still think my husband is my true love; I just think he got "lost." My thoughts and prayers are with you and Steven.

We've not met, and I wish I had done this sooner. I was a shipmate of Steve's on the Bigelow. I pray for you and your family often. I teach High School Biology now, this is my fourth year as a teacher, and every year on September 11 I put up my pictures of Steve so the kids will ask who he is and I can tell them what a great friend he was, and a good man. I wish I could say more, but the words fail me.

"Chucks" friend,
Mark Jennings

My Love,

I couldn't sleep again last night, and I am so tired that I can't think straight. Today hurts the most, because I know now that 7 years ago tonight would be our last night together. It's playing over and over in my mind. If there hadn't been trouble at work, you would have been on vacation, and maybe you would still be here in my arms. I don't know how things would have turned out had the alarm not gone off late. You were going to take Steven in with you because you knew you were going to come home early. Would I have lost him as well? Or would you have left because he was with you? These are answers I will never know, and our poor son has to live with this every day of his life, wondering if the outcome would have been different or worse. What he must be going through! Yet he never speaks of it, but holds you so dear to his heart. How does a person move on when they know that the only person they could ever love is gone? And where? Where are you? Why haven't they found the rest of you? Where are all these people who were lost? And why have so many people forgotten? I promise that I will never forget you. I will always cherish every moment of every day that we were together. You are safe in my heart forever ... I promise!

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

Angelique, thank you, and if I remember correctly, happy first anniversary, and many more!

Hello Barbara,

I wanted to let you know that you are still very much in my thoughts and prayers ... more so now. Please take comfort in knowing the lives you have touched. Mine. Thank you so much....

May God bless,
Angelique Lanier

Oh, my love,

I sit here in the morning hours feeling like my heart is being ripped from my body. I can't stop the tears because I know that now I would only have you in my life for 2 more days. I still keep watching everything replayed on TV, still trying to find answers. I need to know what happened to you. I need to know what you went through because my mind is making it worse and worse as the years pass. To never know what happened to you keeps me in a hell that will never end. I pray that you didn't suffer because I promised you when I married you that no one would ever hurt you again. I feel that I didn't keep my promise, and I don't know how to live with this. I loved you from the first moment I ever saw you. I felt whole for the first time in my life and just wanted to grow old with you. I feel so trapped in time because I cannot let go of you, nor do I want to. I want you here with me where you belong, and that was taken from me in an instant. I will forever love you with all my heart and soul.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

Dear Barbara,

My tears and sorrow go out to you as we approach this most horrible of anniversaries. I am so, so sorry.

My Beloved Husband,

Today is your 51st Birthday, and it is one of the saddest days of the year, filled only with tears, because you are not here with us. I have in the past always mentioned a song by John Denver called, "For You," and being this is your birthday, I dedicate this song to you:

"Just to look in your eyes again
Just to lay in your arms
Just to be the first one always there for you.
Just to live in your laughter
Just to sing in your heart
Just to be everyone of your dreams come true.
Just to sit by your window
Just to touch in the night
Just to offer a prayer each day for you
Just to long for your kisses
Just to dream of your sigh
Just to know that I'd give my life for you

For you are the best of my life
For you are the rest of my life
For you alone, only for you.

Just to wake up each morning
Just to you by my side.
Just to know that you're never really far away
Just a reason for living
Just to say I adore
Just to know that you're in my heart to stay.

Just the words of a love song
Just the beat of my heart
Just the pledge of my love my life to you"

I love you so much, my Angel ... Happy Birthday.

Steven and Barbara

My heart to only yours forever
Your wife, Barbara

My Love,

Tomorrow is your Birthday, and I wish with all my heart that you were here with us. Your birthday wish was always such a simple one. You wanted to be with us and have our love forever. Well, half of your wish remains because we will always love you forever. We will probably spend the day doing something you loved to do. We are having a mass said for you tomorrow, and then when the evening comes, we will celebrate you with a cake and sing "Happy Birthday" as we always do. I have never been able to finish, because I always break down before the end. Tonight I send my love to you, as well as my heart, which will stay with you until this week is over. I need to be with you because I love you so very much, more than anyone could ever love another person. You were and always will be my soul mate, and that is the way we will be until I am in your arms again. I love you, my angel.

My heart to only yours forever,
Your wife, Barbara

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.

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