Rock Tunes and Giggles
When Jennifer Brennan was pregnant with her first child, her husband, Thomas M. Brennan, would play Grateful Dead tapes loudly, hoping the music would reach the ears of his unborn daughter. When the baby kicked, as she invariably did, Mr. Brennan was delighted. She, too, he would say, was a fan.

On the last day he spent with his family, the Sunday before Sept. 11, Mr. Brennan, 32, played Grateful Dead compact discs in the car as the family shopped for furniture for their new house in Scarsdale in Westchester.

Strapped to her car seat, Mr. Brennan's daughter, Catherine, now 19 months, laughed and moved to the music. And that is how Mrs. Brennan would like to remember her husband: as the only person who could make their daughter giggle uncontrollably.

With his wife pregnant with the couple's second child, a boy who was born last month, Mr. Brennan took on many of the child care duties. He often got up early with his daughter, fed her breakfast and carried her when she needed a hug.

Mr. Brennan, an investment banker with Sandler O'Neill, treasured the time with his family, in part because he traveled constantly for work. Tuesday, Sept. 11, was the only day of that week he was scheduled to be in the office.

Hello right now I'm in class writing and creating a tribute for Tom. I personally read and just these few words touched my heart. I hope I can give him some justice in my tribute. My respects for the family

Hi Uncle Tom it's your niece elizabeth Brennan Ann I want to say I love you so much and I am praying for you and children and wife ??

In reading Tom's bio on his memorial website I realized I share the same exact birthday with him. Though I didn't know him personally one thing we have in common is the ability to laugh! May God continue to bless Mr. Brennan's family and we will never forget him or the lives lost on that day. Many blessings!

I walked a mile for you (mile #251) on 5/21/13 as a dedication to your life.

I am Marie, a 64 year old grandmother of 4. I live in Southington, and tonight I attended a tribute to the victims of 9/11. I chose Tom Brennan as the person I prayed for all day.

I never knew Tom, but wanted you to know that he was in my prayers today.

May God Bless his family.

When I would come over to play with your brother John when we were kids, you were a pain in the butt. I ended up marrying a GCHS and BC grad, so i guess the joke's on me. I pray for you often, Tom!

Tom,
Coming up on 10 years buddy. Miss you, but I know you are in good hands.
