I'm lifting up a prayer today for Alfred's family and ask that God richly bless you in some way as Alfred blessed so many when he was here. With very much love from Texas,

I remember reading this story and my heart was so relieved. My childhood best friend lost her niece in Sept. 11. I use to see her all the time as a chiId and got re-acquainted with her the week before at my baby shower. I didn't know what her relationship with God was, but was so relieved when I heard this story of Al leading the people to Christ that day.
September 10, 2014
Today I'm reading this story for the very 1st time. Tomorrow, September 11th 2014, I will share it with a group of women at our weekly church Bible Study. What a message of love and a legacy of Godliness Al has left; and to the Braca family, thank you for sharing the memory of your loved one with us. He is still making a Godly impact, years later!

To the family - As a pastor I have also used the story of your husband in my sermons and this Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013 I will share it again in a message, What do we Really Care About? I have prayer many times for those who lost loved ones in 9/11 - out of your loss and suffering many have met a man who they would probably never know and the love he had for God and his family. I pray today God will Bless All of You - With much Love, David

Hello Jeannie and family,
I will always remember and cherish the years which I spent working, shoulder -to-shoulder, with Al on the Corporate Bond Desk at Mabon Nugent. There could
never had been a better person to work with and to call my friend. He was always cheerful, positive, professional, and forever caring. A man who truly loves God, wife, children, and friends. Everyone on the desk had a nickname, and Al gave me mine -- Cadillac. I am proud to call him my friend, and will always pray for him, Jeannie and children.
Peace Be With You.
Till we meet again.

Deanna and Shaun,As the 5th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, I wanted to tell you that your dad's faithfulness on that day has always inspired me. I've told his story to many people over the years and have never once been able to tell it without being moved to tears. I'll be praying for your family. Love, Sherry

Dear family of Al,
How time goes by without our love ones beside us. Al was my husband David's partner on the desk. Every day, some times many times a day we all would talk for one reason or another. Oh how I do miss the hello's & what's doing? I pray Jeannie & the family are doing well. I know there are a few grandchildren also in Al's family. I know between Al & Dave all of Wall St. would know what was going on with the kids & grandkids. Just like the days of past when Dave would come home with the stories of the day. Who - what - when & what happened to all of the familes. How I miss that & the friendships of all the guys. It seems so hard to believe 4 1/2 yrs. have gone by. It seems too hard to believe we are not dialing the office or they aren't dialing us at home to tell us what was going on or to tell us what they would like for dinner that night. Yes that is all true but now they all are at the Lord's table. I'm sure still telling tales & still having close friendships and telling jokes. Well Al & Dave and of course the many others you are all so very missed and loved. Our hearts are surely broken. God Bless you & God Bless all the families left behind. Guide us & keep us safe.
Love - Margie

Dear Braca family...I used your dad's story for a christian talk in 2002. Now, I've been asked to give it again. I recently found this website and what a blessing it is. Deanna, I know how priceless your wedding pictures must be to you because my daughter was married in May and her dad was there for her, too. Your dad was such an inspiration...there is no way of knowing how many lives he touched. I know it doesn't stop your hurt; or you missing him but, I believe that he took many, many folks on into Heaven with him on September 11. What a hero Al Braca was. Thank you Braca family for sharing him with the rest of us.
July 10, 2003
Braca Family,
It is almost 2 years since your dad/husband died.It is amazing to me how his testimony continues to live on....God is good and even though it is a huge gap in your have the assurance that this is just a "short" time away from him as you all will see him again one day! As the anniversary arrives in about 2 months...continue to be encouraged that Al was a testament to Gods Grace and peace to others! Blessings! Romans 8:28

i am a 15 year girl from a small village south of manchester, England. today i went to church where a man named neil wayne spoke. He told a story of how he met Christopher Braca and i felt i had to get in contact with your family. i was touched by the story that he told, of your father who was such a great man. Chris, i just wanted to tell you that although i do not know you your father has inspired me. i want to be a great christian like him and he has made me a stronger believer. It is hard to make an event like september 11th seem positive but i know that i, like many others, have learnt a great deal. I feel for your family and cannot imagine what life must be like for you. Always remember God loves you and that your great father is still remebered today! i just thought i would tell you so. God bless Lots of love Terie Breegan x

Dear Braca Family, I read your story in Focus on the Family a couple of weeks ago. I have shared with my children, ages 14 and 17, that Al is an excellent example of persevering through our feelings to be a "light in the darkeness". I have shared him so much the last two weeks that now I just say "Remember Al". I thought about you with many prayers on Wednesday, and mid-day on the 12th was burdened to stop what I was doing to pray for your comfort and strengh. I will continue to remember you in my prayers as you walk through your grief and for your health. I will still remind my children and others of Al's example of godliness. I will always "remember Al".

I am Kendra Freeman's mother. I met Deanna when she and Kendra were getting ready to teach 2nd grade. Kendra told me about the many times that she was able to be with your family after she was married and living so far from home. Thank you for making her feel welcome and a little less lonesome. She was so impressed with all your family, including Al. We read your story in Family magazine and were blessed by hearing about your family and Al's last moments. Yesterday at my high school, one of the social studies classes gave to each of the students and teachers a name of a victim to wear and remember all day. I thought you might want to know that people everywhere are thinking and praying for you.

I knew Al for many years and considered him a friend as well as a business associate. He was the most honest bond broker in the business and I really loved doing business with him. When he told me something, I knew that it was the truth.
When I had a very serious problem which led to my leaving the business, he was the only one in New York that came to my side and said that he would pray for me and that if he could do anything for me, just call. I will never forget that. I have been praying for him since the terrible disaster that took his life. I know that he is happy and with the Lord.
I will be saying weekly prayers for the entire Braca family. God bless you all.

Jeannie, do you remember me? Lee Cuccia? Jonathan and David went to PS 36 together, and we worked at the Phone Company a million years ago? I saw your precious son, Christopher, on 48 Hours last night and flew out of my bed. I KNEW he was talking about you and Al. I tried to call you, but you are not listed. Please email me your phone number @[email protected] If you feel like talking, I am here for you. If you are not up to a phone call, please send me your address. I am so incredibly sad for you and your wonderful children. I am in Texas and didn't have access to NY papers. I just didn't know. Please feel my love. Can I help? Lee

Dear Braca Family, I heard how Al was leading people to Christ up until the moment of his death. What a testimony and what a legacy he leaves behind! You must be so proud to be his family. Lisa Chilson-Rose from the New York Southern Baptist Mission Board told us the story. Someone she knows was one of those saved just before he died on 9/11. May God richly bless you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss. Don't you know Al is happy today at home with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Remember the good times and remember-- this place is not our home...

My daughter Jennifer Boscarino is a friend of the twins. Our hearts and prayers are with you daily. He will never be forgotten and will pave the way for us all.

Al was my father's partner at Cantor for years. I grew up talking to Al on the phone almost on a daily basis. I will always remember talking to him with the low, relaxed voice saying "Hi Dawn, how ya doin'?". Even though my dad had many girls calling him, he always knew my voice. He was always nice to talk to and I miss our short conversations. I think of him and his family often.

God Bless....

I just located this website today during my lunch. By way of introduction I am Col. Donald Wirth's(ret) cousin (Shaun's once removed - second).

Don and I grew up best of friends and we've stayed close through the years. We stayed at Don and Lynn's (Green Bank - Egg Harbor City)in the summer of 2000.

While my wife Sandra and I were unable to attend Deanna and Shaun's wedding we've held their marriage up with our prayers.

Don shared some about Al and the imapct he made in the lives of many others in obedience to our King. I praise our Lord Jesus Christ for his commitment to be godly man. I've held the Braca family in my heart and prayers since I first learned of yor loss. May our Lord continue to fill you with comfort and peace.

I look forward to meeting you all one day - here or Home - as well as all of those that Al's life affected towards salvation. To God be the glory.

Coram Deo, Stephen

Dear Bracas,
Hello! It's me, Mandy! I don't know how often you get to read this, but no need to tell you how much I love you guys. I'm continuously praying for you and think about you all the time. Chris, you're a great guy. You all radiate strength and endurance and continue to amaze me everytime I get to talk to you. Keep your faith in God (even though I know I don't have to tell you that :) ) and embrace him at all times. I love you guys dearly and can't wait until I get to talk to you again.
Much love my dear Bracas!

Dear Jean and David, I worked with you at the Family Assistance Center and felt honored to do so. I know that your loss is great and I wish you and the rest of your family peace and love in your memories of what sounds like a wonderful husband and person. Take good care. I will remember you always.

I worked indirectly with Al for about two years in the early 90's at Cantor Fitzgerald. He was a kind-hearted, modest, fair and good-humored man who taught me a lot about how to live as an adult. I will always remember him, and I feel for your loss so much.

We are very sorry for your loss of Alfred. May his deep faith, his life and love live on in you. May the sorrow you feel today be lightened by warm memories of yesterday. Our heart 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

Dearest Jeannie -

I will always remember the blessing that you & Al have been to me and my family at Calvary Chapel Four Winds, and I look forward to seeing Al again, along with our Lord Jesus Christ - what a reunion that will be! I love you all, and you've ever been in my mind, heart and prayers.

I love you all. Your Sis In Christ,

What a fulfilling, wonderful life with Alfred!

That makes it so much more difficult to let go. Alfred would want you to be happy. Please remember that.

I am very very sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing the story of how you met.
October 05, 2001
Your testimony was surely a blessing when it was shared to us at a bible study by those who heard your son's story. You encourage us to be bold in sharing to the whole world that the only way to have a peaceful life here on earth and after is by having Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. What a way to respond to a situation but to rely solely on the Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him unto the end... Life only begun when you met our prayers to the families of the victims.
September 28, 2001
May God bless you in this terrable time of sorrow.. rest assured all will be made right some day.

You are one of the chosen who will stand as a testimony for freedom and sacrifice. May Heavenly Father bless your family with peace. My heart goes out to your family and our prayers are continually with you and yours.
