We visited the 911 Memorial on 8/9/14 for the first time. My partner and I decided to pick one name each from the Memorial and do a little research when we got home. My pick was "Peter" and I wanted to sign the guest book and pay my respect to him and his family. A name I will never forget, Rest in peace Brother and God Bless your family....

I never knew Peter. But I'm starting to.
You see, I am new to Sudbury MA and have often visited a nearby cemetary with my 3 year old daughter Olivia. It is one of her favorite places to walk to and through and I think thats ok. Anyhow, of all of the headstones in the cemetary to see, somehow the one with the heartshaped stone resting on top caught Olivia's eye and intrique. We sat together on a bench right there and chatted for an hour. She clutched that heartshaped stone all the while. I delicately tried to explain to her that that was a special stone left by someone special for someone special (having no idea who indeed was buried there) You see ,when my wife was 6months pregnant w/ Olivia I suffered a cardiac arrest. I was unconscious for presumably 20minutes. It took 6 "blasts from the paddles" to get me going again. So, I almost never met this little girl of mine! After surviving that, everything from that day has changed me. It is from that experience I began to sob a little, knowing that I almost wasnt here to sit quietly with my very own princess! I again was reminded of how blessed i truly am .So just today, my wife went through the cemetary again with Olivia. Olivia HAD to go see the heart shaped rock. It was then that my wife noticed the particulars of this gravesite and specifically the date of Peter's passing. With the help of the internet , the dots were then simply connected.
I see that it has been a while since this book has been signed. However, although I never knew him, and ten years have passed, he still is touching lives he would never have dreamed. Thank you Peter for the gift of your very special place for our very VERY special moments together. They truly are memories in the making.! Next time we're there, i'll introduce you to Olivia!!god bless you and your family and may you rest in peace.We WILL NEVER FORGET

To the family of Peter Morgan Goodrich:
Peter 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.

Within a week or two of joining the company, Peter invited me along to a Thai restaurant, the Lemon Tree Cafe. It was the first time I had ever eaten Thai food and it was where I met my wife, whose family owns the restaurant. Put simply, I would probably not have the happy life I have today, but for Peter taking me there that day.

We also shared an odd shared interest, Peter and I:

I'm a little embarrassed to mention this, but I've always had a fascination (shall I say, "appreciation") for spiders since I was a boy, as they represent a diverse array of highly evolved, skilled predators unparalleled in the vertebrate world. I won a prize at a science fair when I was 12 for keeping a collection of black widows and making scientific observations of them over the course of a year. Peter was the first person I knew (other than a college professor) who shared the interest. Although I had abandoned it long ago, he had a few specimens preserved in acrylic paperweights in his office. I seem to recall he had a Rhinoceros beetle in there, too.

On Monday, September 10, the day before his flight to L.A., I was in his office prepping his laptop for the presentation he was to give. We were joking and laughing about the fact that few others, including his wife, Rachel, didn't share his appreciation of bugs. Several weeks earlier, Peter had loaned me a book he described as his absolute favorite, cherished read, the Biology of Spiders (2d. ed., Oxford Univ. Press, 1996). His wife conveyed to me that Peter would have wanted me to keep it. And so, it remains on my shelf to this day.
