Every September 11 I wear the bracelet my daughter brought home for me which she got from her office. She is with the US Capitol Police. The bracelet reads:

Thomas Gorman NY/NJ Port Authority
September 11, 2001

I wear it to remember his bravery and his sacrifice. I know, as the mother of a police officer on duty that day at the US Capitol, it could have been her. The Gorman family will always be in my heart and my thoughts.

I did not know this person, but my school is raising money in honor of those who died on 9/11. You pay one dollar to get a laminated tag of a stick figure man on your backpack. Each tag has the name of a person who died that day and this is the one I got. Like I said, I did not know who he was or anyhting about him but I know that his family is in my prayers. He must have been a wonderful man just like the countless others lost on this day. Just wanted to leave a small thought.

Dear family and friends of Thomas E Gorman. I am sorry you lost a loved one

After 9/ll, I got memorial bracelets from FDNY and from NY PA. My bracelet has your name on it. I have prayed for you and for your family for 10 years. I keep your bracelet on display and put it on my Christmas tree each year. I live in south Mississippi. Rest in peace.

Thomas was a name that came to me on a bracelet. A way many of us found a way to express our grieve over such an unimaginable time. Since then I have read many postings and articles from his family and friends and found that this stranger, the hero I carried on my wrist, was a much loved family member to them. On this tenth anniversary, my thoughts are with the family of Thomas Gorman. God Bless!

We remember Tom as a fun, full-of-life guy who loved his family and enjoyed life and helping his community.

He is a person missed by his family and friends.... It's hard to believe that nine years have already passed.

Still remembering.

Mr. Gorman lived in the same town as I did, he also worked with my uncle at the Port Authority for many years. He was a great guy. Mr. Gorman was a little league coach on one of the opposing teams in our league. He would always give me a tough time about my uncle to "bust his chops" (in a joking matter of course). This day was a terrible shame but I am honored to have known Mr. Gorman and a few other of the officers lost that day they were great people and would never hesitate to help you out with anything you might have needed. I had the honor to meet his niece Kathy who is a fine young girl. It's a shame how things took its toll that horrible day. It's kinda strange how life plays out, but Mr. Gorman will always be missed. May God bless him and his family stay strong.

I knew Tom and Barbara from high school ... in Bayonne he was a good guy, and she was so pretty. I'm so glad that they got married and started a family. I worked with Tom for a short while on the Turnpike. That was not good enough for Tom; he told me he wanted to help people.... Well, help he did. You're a hero, Tom, to me and everyone who knew you.... Rest in peace.

Miss you, Tom! Just spent the night with Barb and Laura talking about old times.

God bless you, Tommy. I think about ya every day, buddy. Peace to you always.

I'm originally from Bayonne, as was my father Frank. I was working day shift on September 11, 2001. I was in charge of traffic in Woodbridge, where there are two vantage points where you could see the towers in the distance. My father never spoke of his side of the family. But he was strong, courageous, and yet gentle. Thomas will always be remembered by this Gorman. I'm sure he was strong, courageous, and yet gentle. Rest in peace.

No words can ever express what I really feel. Thank you for being one of our heroes. My heart aches for your family. May they find peace somehow ... someway ... someday. R.I.P.

I used to go to school with his daughter, Bridget, and we were in the same class one year. After I moved away from Middlesex, I came back to visit. I went to Hazelwood with Laura and saw Bridget crying. I knew about 9/11, but I had no clue her dad had died. He was a great man that the whole community of Middlesex will miss. And may his Mauger Gym memorial live on to inspire the kids of the school. I give special wishes and inspiration to Bridget and her entire family on a day of hardships.

Tom was my dad. As everyone says, he did have a great sense of humor. He was the best dad i could ask for.  Evrytime i feel that i just want to give up, i think of him and how if he had given up. hundreds of people wouldnt be alive right now.  I know hes still here, i can feel him. My brother Pat was using our punching bag one night and he stopped it to look at the time. he then heard the chains move and the bag was swinging back and forth ad a fist mark went in and out. He knew it was my dad working out with him.thanks for honoring him.

Jeanette Gorman-  Your Uncle and I were boyhood friends on third street in Bayonne. I wish you could have known him as a kid, he was very funny and a good athlete. I was not surprised to learn that Tom had gone on to be a firefighter and then a police officer for the port authority. He was always kind and had a nice sense of humor even if the joke was on him. We miss him and remember him with great affection. God bless you and your family.

Thomas Gorman was a wonderful human being. He was my uncle and he was a source of encouragment. He always told me that i can do whatever i put my mind to. With sports i was not that good when i was little, but now that i got older i told my self that i can do anything because my dad and my uncle said i will become a good softball player one day and not i play softball and i get better and better every day. My uncle was a great guy, he cared about everyone and would help you with anything. He loved his family and loved what he did. He is a Hero in my eyes.
