I found your name and I want your family to know that you are being thought of... remembered... and your prayed for today.
March 28, 2018
My wife and I visited the memorial last weekend and found Simon's name. My brother Kevin was a friend of Simon's from those crazy motorbike days around Harlow in the late 70's early 80's. I remember Simon well and was very moved but happy to visit the memorial and touch his name and picture and remember the good times now past. I wish your wife and children well Simon. Happy Birthday. Best wishes, Kent

Simon and I were class mates at Passmores during our teenage years. The one thing that always sticks in my mind was his smile. When I found out about his passing a few days after 9/11 I was so shocked and saddened. The following year or so I kept seeing his face as we were at 16 years of age. RIP my friend.

missed but not forgotten, old friend.

I clipped Simon's profile from the New York Times pages in the months after 9/11. My wife's mother was British and although we do not partake regularly of Marmite nor do we stash jars around the house I do have several Gentleman's Relish ceramic containers on my desk from such posh shops as Fortam & Mason which various relatives have sent over in years past. We do drink prodigious pots of tea and have been known to tear through packets of English biscuits during the 4PM tea hour.

Sorting through my desk today I again came across Simon's profile and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes. The tremendous loss of life on that day affected so many and I can only hope that Simon's wife and his three children have been able to move on all the while carrying the spirit and memory of their remarkable husband and father.
September 13, 2011
10 years on, gone by in a flash, I have just spent the 11th with Maureen and the children, you would be so proud of them.

September 11, 2010
you are loved.I hope with all my wooden soldiers that you know it. Simon, in your name, I will do my best to be a better person, a more loving person, if anyone reads this I hope they will do the same. Time doesn't change the love. You are loved by so many and in so many ways, my greatest prayer is that somehow you know this. And that anyone reading this will do something today to live love, peace, tolerance, justice, etc. Do something today to show your LOVE to others.

September 10, 2007
As always, my thoughts are with you today Maureen, as they are with your children.
Time heals pain, but memories never fade.
June 07, 2007
Don't know how I ended up viewing this but when I read Maureen's tribute I was reminded of when she met him as I was one of the "Jersey shore girls" with her at the diner. I remember Simon's wonderful smile and easy laugh and how lovingly he looked at her in those early days. This past Christmas my family met with Maureen and her children and our son's became fast friends. They are a wonderfully happy and active family and it was evident Simon is always there in spirit. May God rest his soul and continue to bless his family.
March 28, 2007
Happy Birthday!!!

Simon on his RD (various ones) I will never forget him. He used to take great delight going round the clock tower rounabout (in Harlow) with me on the back scraping bits of the bike. Thanks mate for introducing me to motorcycles , always remember you..Jon

Thinking of you Maureen, and your 3 beautiful children today, 5 years since Simon was taken from you. Hugs to you all.
March 28, 2006
It's your birthday today Simon and we miss you as much as we did on Sept.12th, 2001. Your kids are beautiful and have grown so much. They all have so much of you in them that it comforts me and breaks my heart at the same time. We sent off balloons to you, made cupcakes and wrote on shells and threw them into the ocean at sunset like we always do. You are in our hearts always. We miss you. We will always love you.
Yours forever, Maureen
September 11, 2005
4 years later and I still think of you. God bless and sleep tight.

God Bless the Maddison Family on the 2nd anniversary of that fateful day. Your family is in my prayers.
September 08, 2003
I rode my Harley Davidson to honor the spirit of (Simon) this past Sunday in the 9-11 Parade to honor the victims, in Phoenix Arizona. His spirit was hear loud and proud with the rumble of my straigt pipes. I did not know him but I can tell his family that wearing his name on my wrist band make me wish that I had. I will continue to wear this band on the futher rides in years to come, the attendance was 10-12 thousand motorcycles that attended the ride. God be with you Simon and peace be with your friends and family. His spirit will live on !!!
September 11, 2002
I am sitting in my office waiting to hear your name read on 9/11/02. I had not seen you in many years yet I have tears in my eyes. I will always remember the fun times water skiing in Pennsylvania. Your were a fine person "Remington Steele"


July 21, 2002
Did you know how much we loved you while you were here
Did you know how much you meant to us and that your life was so dear
Did you know we were so happy when it was Maureen's heart you stole
Did you know that your important part made our family whole
Did you know that everyone noticed your three children adored you
Did you know it was so obvious that you adored them too
Did you know we never minded when you challenged our political views
Did you know it was just a way of keeping us amused
Did you know we always loved the silly things you would say and do
Did you know we always laughed because we were laughing along with you
Oh Simon,I hope you knew it even if the words were never spoken
I will say it to you now......
our love for you will never be broken

April 12, 2002
Just wanted to let Simon Maddison's family know that I am making a quilt square in the memory of Simon (thru United in Memory). I'm thinking a British flag and a jar of Marmite is a must, if you have any other suggestions please contact me asap. My heart breaks every time I read about Simon's wife and Children. GodSpeed.

Simon -
So many memories - It was so great to see you, Maureen and the children in August, we can still see you sitting in our lounge, playing paper aeroplanes.
We remember that lovely day in Cambridge, and the ride on the punt that we so very nearly had.
We all miss you so much.
Steve, Sue, Emily & Kate

Simon my friend - your online jokes
were the best and made me always laugh even when I was down.
I miss you and your jokes so much..
My love to Maureen, Caileigh, Kyle and Sydney.

In remberance
February 07, 2002
Simon, you were the man that made my sister Maureen happier than I've ever known. You were a wonderful husband and gave her 3 beautiful children. Al and I wanted you as our daughter's godfather because you were the perfect example of a loving, giving and patient father. We are just sorry that you will never know your god-daughter Nicole. But Nicole will know you through us, Maureen and Caileigh, Kyle and Sydney. We love you and miss you terribly.
February 06, 2002
I met him on September 22nd 1997 at 61 Walsh Drive, Parsippany, NJ. He is wonderful man and he made me comfortable with the big project he was dealing with. Though I know him for 5 days, I cannot forget him forever.

My family and me pray for the well being of his family.
February 06, 2002
Simons voice was always a breath of fresh air.
Always knew it was him on the phone even if it was a long time since we spoke. He never had to introduce himself I always knew. Working together was great but talking with him about life was better. Simon was a man that was "In Love with his Family". He use to tell me how he would love to play with the children when he got home and then once in bed (7:30!!Still don't know how they did that!)he would look forward to spending the rest of his evening alone with his "beautiful wife". WOW! I can still hear his words in my head.
He made me laugh so hard I cried.
When we love so deeply we run the risk of loosing it. We must strive to keep it in our hearts. I can't even begin to understand the pain but I do know that the pain will lessen and one day we will be able to all breath better. I am sure that Simon is wishing for that day for all of those who have lost people due to this tragedy. My heart and prayers goes out to YOU Maureen and your three beautiful children.

To Uncle Simon, love Peter (age 10)
We Are Still All Together

He was the one that we remember
Eating marmite with his loving children
He was the one that we remember
Saying "Pass the Parcel"
He was the one that we remember
Loving and caring
He was the one that we remember
Bugging Christine about getting a Suburban
We will remember him
So long as we live,
They too shall live,
For he is a part of us
For we remember him !

Simon asked me to get him some Orange Squash when I went to the UK for Cantor. I was always sorry I didn't make the effort for him.

I was instrumental in dragging Simon to see the Offspring. I hope that made up for the Orange Squash.

I will always remember him for dressing-down his suits with his Doc Martens. I wouldn't have bought a pair for myself if not for him. They are a constant reminder for me of a great guy who we will all miss.
February 03, 2002
To Simon, who I met through my husband, a very kind person and even though we never knew very well would always ring us to visit him when he was in the UK. The last time he rang us we unfortunatly were too busy to see him, thinking he would soon be over again anyway. God bless to Maureen and the children, I am sure Simon is never far away. x x
January 31, 2002
Simon... I will miss you my friend.... miss our joke of you calling me "Matt" everytime you saw me.

I had such fun with you joking about Monty Python.... and finding a way to rib you.

I will miss working with you my friend.
January 31, 2002
When I think of Simon I think of a guy who accepted me into the ranks of Cantor on my first day, who seemed to know what I was going to say before I said it.

I think of someone who was happy just to have my friendship.

He was a my friend and we spent many hours talking about our points of view, and we enjoyed our contrasts. I will always remember him standing behind me at my terminal at work and hearing him say "thanks for coming in!" So to Simon I say "Thanks for being my friend.."
January 31, 2002
Our Dear Friend>>Simon ;-)

To, My Uncle and Friend Lost Forever!
I will always remember you, you were a friend, an Uncle and a joker and your memories will be with me forever.
After all the jokes you used to make about my boyfriends, It leaves me sad to thing that you won't be around to see me grow up, get married and have children.
I will Always remember you.
All my Love,

Simon, you were a wonderful friend and colleague - a talented technician. I miss you and our coffee breaks, your recycling bin cubicle of Snapples, and shooting the breeze. It's 3 o'clock. Want to run downstairs and get some coffee?

Godspeed, Simon.
December 23, 2001
We are deeply sorry for your loss of Simon. May his life and love continue living on through those who love him. Our hearts cry with you.
America Cries
We see your sorrow-
and our hearts cry....
We can not erase your pain
but you do not have to face the anguish alone-for we-
-the American people-
are beside you.
We so desperately want to have the touch that brings you comfort,
the strength that gives you courage,
and the words to lighten your spirits.
And when we are left speechless
may the silence of our nation weave love into your hearts
to ease your sorrow.
May you find healing through our nation's strength as we-
-the American people-
face this difficult time together. Our hearts are with you. Teresa Jahn
Dixon, IL

Simon will be remembered as a very talented VMS developer. He proved that America is indeed the land of opportunity. He will not be forgotten -- certainly he will be missed. GodSpeed.

To my little brother,
