I had the opportunity to watch my first memorial reading of the names this morning. Although I could not watch the entire ceremony, my memory of Vanessa was stimulated by the ceremony. I hired Vanessa as my assistant in 1997. A month after I hired her, we had a tragedy in our family. Her unconditional compassion came through immediately as she did everything she could think of to help console my wife (a woman she only met once) We only worked together for 18 months or so but in that short time, she left an impression on me that carries through to this day. She was truly a wonderful person. God Bless Vanessa.

I knew Vanessa when she was about nineteen. She was gorgeous, smart, and very funny. I have only just discovered that she is no longer on earth, and I am very sad for her mother, who was a warm friend who welcomed me into her home when I was new to Syracuse. My heart aches for you, Donna.

I still miss everything about you, everything I tried to control, with every fiber of my being. I so want to hold you, V, and have you back. You are still so loved.

You left an empty space, dear. I miss you.

I have just seen a video clip of Vanessa's mother speaking in a press conference and I looked through all the names of the memorials until I could find her and I did. I didn't know Vanessa, but I have learned a little from what kind of a person she was. May she rest in peace.

On this fifth anniversary on Vanessa's death I felt the need to "find" her again. I own the staffing agency that placed Vanessa in the job at the World Trade Center. I will always feel partially responsible for Vanessa being in that place at that time. I had the honor of meeting Vanessa back in March of 2000. She was a vibrant, bright light who impressed me immediately. Regus Business Centers was a good client and I believed Vanessa would truly be an asset to them. I spoke with her just before 9/11 and wished her well knowing little that would be the last time. I am so truly saddened by this loss. I will never forget Vanessa for as long as I live. May she rest in peace and may her family find some comfort in knowing what a wonderful person Vanessa was.

I didn't know Vanessa well; I worked with her on the 93rd floor for just a few months. I just want her family to know I think of her often and intend to never forget her. My thoughts today are on her and the other people I knew -- for today, just know that someone is saying her name and remembering her fondly.

I was given Vanessa's name as part of a tribute to victims of 9-11 and came across this site while searching for more info on her. I am honored to help pay tribute to such a vibrant young woman.

I remember the Yankees game, your senior ball, the trip to Missouri, Walt Disney World, the chicken pox, the Buffalo Bills game, the rabbits, your smile, beautiful eyes and your kindness.

My name is also Vanessa Langer.  I grew up in a small suburb just ouside the city.  Shortly after 9/11, when the newspapers began to publish the victim's names, many old friends contacted my parents inquiring about the name on the list.  The fact that someone so geographically close with the same name as me gave their life on 9/11 frequently gives me an erie feeling that I can not quite describe.  I often remember your Vanessa, and your family in my prayers. God Bless

To all who remember my daughter, Vanessa, thank you.  We all want to hold her close, not just in memory.  Pray for a more peaceful world.

Some time after September the 11th, I went to a victims' website and found Vanessa.  I wanted to have a face to put to the tragedy.  I now think of Vanessa as someone I knew through the stories people have written about her.  Four months pregnant and looking forward to everything.  Those of you who knew her better than I were lucky - even though I live several thousand miles away, I will never forget.

ich heiße genauso wie diese vanessa hier. es ist sehr erschütternd zu sehen, dass jemand mit dem selben namen gestorben ist. aber es ehrt mich. sie starb an so einem schrecklichen ort an so einem schrecklichen tag und ich lebe mit dem selben namen weiter. es ist doch schön, dass es wenigstens ihren namen noch gibt...alles gute dort wo immer du sein magst! vielleicht trifft man sich in ferner zukunft...

Rough translation from German:

I am called just as as these, Vanessa here.  It is so shaking to see that someone died with the same name. however it honours me she died at such a terrible place and on such a terrible day and I live on with the same name. it is nevertheless beautiful that the name still is there ... all good where always you be may! perhaps one meets in the distant future...

Found Vanessa's business card while working "the pile" on 9/13/01.  Never knew Vanessa; will never forget Vanessa.

I never knew Vanessa, I just saw her name as a memorial on the credits of the film Buffalo Soldiers and wanted to know more. I didn't even realise that she was a victim of 9/11 until I searched and came here. That day was a tragedy, a terrible waste. I am just a stranger, I would never have known her but for her work - I just wanted to let you know that someone from the other side of the world has been touched by her life, and I am so sorry for your loss. She and you are in my thoughts, God bless.

Remembered fondly always and forever.

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.

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!
