As I cross-stitched your name on the memorial that I am doing for all of the victims, I prayed for you and your family. Please know that your death was not in vain. We will always remember. God Bless.

after the towers were hit I checked all the names from the towers where I had known so many people. I never thought to check the list from the planes until months later when I heard that you were on the second plane. I checked and rechecked, unable to believe that you were gone. The last time I saw you we danced at Neffa and had a good chat and I walked away thinking that we would drop in and out of each others lives for years to come. I was and am so sad that I won't see you again on or off the dance floor. My love to all who have lost you- and my regrets that I heard so late that I was not there at the time to help them to remember you.

Hi Chris, you still LIVE ON!!! We're sorry we missed the party in Brooklyn with your girlfriend a few months before you passed away, you know we had the baby thing going on, Grant was about 1 1/2 and Hope was about 6-7 months old, remember, we lived in the far reaches, not in NYC anymore, but, OH NO!!!! the burbs in CT, but I remember thinking, Brooklyn, that's only an hour drive... You know Bill helped about a week - I think (or less??) later at night in NYC after he went to a meeting for work, that was his way of helping. I gave free drinks and lunch, (they always wanted straight shots) to the grey ash covered rescue/clean-up, workers I saw in a pub near Ground Zero after going there a few days later (there was a great Irish place that served lunch that they liked) - and, of course, we laid down some flowers for you on one of the fences!!!! I still tell people how amazing your memorial service was, connecting bikers up with English folk dancers, I have to tell them about 3 times before they wrap their minds around it. Love you and we'll show Grant, Hope and Joy about you when they're older. Love you always, Julia, Bill, and kids

I graduated from High School with Chris, over the years we had lost touch. I was shocked to find out that he was on United Flight 175 and perished when it hit the Tower. I was doubly shocked to find out that Chris worked at UMASS and lived in Turners Falls, MA. I live in Colrain, MA, just 30 minutes from Turners Falls. Every year when the 9/11 anniversary approaches I feel a large pang of regret that not only did Chris perish on that plane, but I had not kept in touch with him to know that he only lived 30 minuntes from me.

I remember vividly eating lunch and enjoying great conversation with Chris. He has the heart of gold and his memory will last forever.

I don't know Chris, but about 1 month ago my mom came to me with these bracelets of the victims of 9/11 and i looked through them, reading their information about where they lived and what job they did. For some reason, Chris's kept coming back into my mind as i looked at the rest of i decided that this one had to be the one that i'd proudly wear and think of often. It wasn't until now that I wanted to know what kind of person he was. It wasn't a surprise at all from the things i've been reading, he sounded like a really "mr. wonderful". I'd like to tell his family and friends that i'm sorry for his loss. Rest In Peace Chris.

on sept 5th, 2001, i arrived at the oit centre in umass to try and open an email account. had just arrived in the us, no idea of how american colleges worked... and there was a blonde guy with glasses who opened the door and smiled everytime i went through with another form that i should have filled in. i thought i'd never be done, and he kept telling me to stay in line! if i wanted anything done at all today! whew! he was so funny, and his face stuck with me; i thought, what a shame he's not working in every department at this crazy american college.
but the next time i went into the oit office, it was sept 15th, and there was only his picture on the wall.
i didn't know this man; i met him only once. but few people make any kind of impression the first time you meet them... and he did. even to complete strangers. my thoughts are with his family today. i am so sorry. may he rest peacefully.

Risen Angel
by Susie Stowbridge
two years
since our angel
moved to a better place
and left those still here
on earth
trying to explain our loss
healing as best as we could
without our Mr. Wonderful
two years
since our angel
rose to his eternal
place in our hearts
in our every thought
our angel has not left us
but instead
assumed a higher
place among us
and always will be there
just as he was here
for us all
on earth
