I am remembering Chris' playfulness today. We miss him on the dance floor and in our lives. Chris and Chris's family -- you are in my loving thoughts today.

To the family of Christoffer Carstanjen:
Christoffer gave the ultimate sacrifice and will be held in the hearts of Americans forever. I cannot and will not let our heroes of September 11 be forgotten. My deepest sympathy to you.

Hey Bro!

..preparing to mark nine years since you've passed....

...maybe someday you can tell me: did you know in high school? ...your quote in our yearbook...

I'm with Ken Hill on this one...I think you're probably floating around us here and there, now and again, rolling your eyes at our idiocracies, narrow-mindedness, and tunnel vision...I bet it's MORE exasperating being on The Other Side and all...having an even GREATER perspective!
...sorry brother...
...alls I can say is that many of us are doing the best we can...any help you can give us?

Anyways: ...always talk of "9/11" brings your fairhaired countenance to mind and recollections of your numerous truthful, unique insights in Homeroom and Study Hall conversations...and brings weight to my heart...tears to my eyes...knowing what the world lost in losing you...

The saying "only the good die young" is too truthful in your case...

Love always,

A high school chum and comrade-in-cynincal-verbal-arms-

I saw this guestbook for the first time the other day. I got really emotional.I
always tried to imagine what was going through Chris's mind. After watching the movie flight 93 and that strategy behind the operation. I knew Chris pretty well. He would have come up with some several satirical comments. Like Maybe they will fly us to Cuba, or I hope we don't fly to Iran, I gonna be really late. His hysterical satircal wit is missed. My mom called me two days after it happened. It hurt me deeply, to my soul.

Chris, I will never miss your clever sense of humor. You better be the first one in heaven that I meet.

Seven years ago today...can you believe it? It still brings tears and always will. It's difficult to understand how and why it happened, and whether it will happen again. But just as the lights continue to shine in the night skies over New York City, Washington, and Shanksville, PA, the light and warmth for Christoffer and all the others that lost their lives seven years ago today, will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

We remember you...we miss you...we will never forget you.
Rest in peace.

Reflecting on 9/11,

Dear Mimi:

I can't believe I am just now learning of Christoffer's sad death at the hands of terorists. As a neighbor of yours for more than 20 years, my fondest memories of Chris as a little boy are when you came to visit Gilford Street. Your family has had so many tragedies over the years, I don't understand why God allows this to continue to happen. My brother Richard visited Mickey last year in Cape Cod and learned about Chris' passing. I relocated to Raleigh, NC in 1984 and live here with my husband Sam of 38 years, my two children Stephanie age 32 and Matthew age 35. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful grandchildren Peyton,6; Sammy,5 and Kennedy, 3. They are the age Chris and Jon were the last time I saw them. If you happen to see this note, please contact me at I would love to make contact again after all of these years. I miss Gilford Street...we had such wonderful memories. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Happy Birthday!!!

I was thinking of Christoffer recently. We worked together at Northfield Mount Hermon and lost touch a bit after I left there in December 1999. I was glad to have the opportunity to get back together with him on September 8, 2001 at the Connecticut River Brewer's Festival, where we enjoyed many great beers and planned to get together again upon his return from California.

Now I'm working at UMASS and thinking how nice it would be to see his face on campus and hear his goofy laugh again.

You are missed, my friend.
