Hi Daniel,I am from your school in year 4. Your btohrer Will and you came and talked to us (year 3 and 4). You are very inspiration to all. I promise I will by a book! You are doing a marvulours job for saving the orangtans. I really hope that you and everbody who wants to help you save the orangutans will be able to do what your dream is. People should be more like you because you are trying to do something good instead of trying to plant Palm Oil Trees, it is very bad that people would want to wipe out a animals habitat and if it keeps going it will also wipe out that animal too!YOU ARE AWESOME!!

Uncle Willie told us stories when we were kids that were completely mind boggling and always made us want to hear more. WE were always excited when he came around the house.

'Cousin Willie' was one of those guys I didn't get to spend much time with since he was much older, but I remember one time we went to his place for some family shindig.

He and his wife were so nice. I was like 9 or 10 at the time, but they treated me like a grown-up, asking me what I wanted to eat, drink, or do while we were there. They took the time to speak with me, and that made me feel special. They were the kind of people who wanted to make you feel welcome. It was genuine and sincere, and that's how I remember him.

I only regret finding out so much more about him after he was gone.

Bill was my colleague in the Tax Department, where I was fortunate to work with him on projects involving Affirmative Action. He was generous with his time and his expertise, and he had a great sense of humor, which was so important at the time. Even now, so many years later, he will not be forgotten by those of us lucky enough to have known him.

William Valcarcel was my older brother and my hero. Like my beautiful niece, Lindley, I too wish that I had known him better. I didn't grow up with him, and I had the pleasure of getting to know him as I grew older. He was such a kind and lighthearted man. Most importantly, he was a strong family man who raised his family with great values and convictions. Before his death we were both beginning to learn more of the other. I miss him every day, but I know that just like he took care of his family in life, he continues to do so in death. He is the guardian angel to many of us. Thank you, Willy, for all your love and guidance.

William Valcarcel was my uncle, my dad's brother, and I wish I could say that we were close, but to be honest I only remember meeting him once when I was about 6, and I remember not fully understanding why I had never seen him before like all my other aunts and uncles. On 9/11/01 I remember feeling relieved that no one I knew worked in those buildings, and it wasn't until later that afternoon that my mom explained to me that my dad had a brother who worked in one of the towers. I was scared and confused because I couldn't remember this man, and sad because I knew I would never have the chance to be close to him like I am with my other relatives. Instead of making it easier to deal with it, somehow has made it harder because each year I can't stop thinking about the uncle I never got the chance to know, and it makes me miss him terribly. I may not have known him personally, but I know him through the stories my family has shared with me, and I know the kind of person he was based on the kids he raised, my cousins who fortunately I am in contact with now. I miss you so much, Uncle Willy, and I will never forget you.

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.
