Donald DiTullio
"Riding Free and Forever"

When the people who admired Donald DiTullio think about him, some go to the distant past, some to the recent past and some to the future, but it is always with fondness. His older sister, Janice Fleming, recalled how, as a toddler, he would fix things around the house with his new wooden hammer. He hammered so hard, his indentations were left as a reminder until the home was remodeled.

His mother, Marjorie DiTullio, talks about how Mr. DiTullio, 49, a passenger on Flight 11, took good care of her, maybe even spoiled her a little. He lived in Peabody, Mass., not far from her. If she talked about something that she needed done, "It would be `Yes, mother.' It was not what he said, but the way he said it," she said.

A co-worker at Smith & Nephew, a medical device manufacturer in Andover, Mass., thinks of Mr. DiTullio, a Harley-Davidson fan, in the future. "I see you riding free and forever, wind blowing in your face, leaning into long smooth turns, spitting out the occasional bug," Sue Farnsworth wrote on a family Web page. "Your bike is chromed to the max and running perfectly, with a crank on the throttle. A deep throaty blast fills the air. Ride, Don, ride."

Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on January 20, 2002.

Hard to believe that its been eighteen years since you, Janice & Mrs and Mr James Trentini, who I grew up with in the village section of Everett, was taken from us on 9/11....God bless the families left behind.

Thinking of you and Janis, as always. Hoping Auntie Mum is with you also -- assuming you are together again rooting for all our beloved sports teams and all your nephews and niece...I know you would have loved seeing them grow up.

Remembering fun times and wishing you could have enjoyed the vacation you and Janis had planned.

Love, Ellen

It's a tribute to your character that so many of your friends continue to speak of you and your good deeds. I join them in keeping your legacy alive as we remember that every sad day when The United States pulled together to mourn the loss of so many. Much love to your family and friends.

Don...

I once again told everybody about you as I do and have done always, at every mention of that tragic event and I have just added a 9-11 Memorial album on my FaceBook account where it can be seen by anyone in that new album there if they search for me as Carl Anthony Straus in the FaceBook search box.

There I memorialized you and Janice both, and the 4 other people in that album that were taken from us that fateful day too, back in 2001... all on United Airlines flight 11.

Rest In Peace, Don and Janice and all the others who were ripped from our grasp that day too!

I won't EVER let people forget ANY of you people!

I got a new reminder in my e-mail that so many good people still remember you here Don... I mention yours and N. Janice Lasden's names often, as well as James and Mrs. Trentini's names, every time anyone mentions 9-11-2001.

"Jim" was a Phys-Ed. and Health Teacher at Burlington High School (my own Alma Mater) and a former US Marine. He also was a good man who was cut down in his prime. He was one heck of a good guy who, like you, had helped so many people to preserve and restore their optimum health and maintain wellness, as you did in your critically important Medical Device Manufacturing career. There were no two finer, caring men on God's green Earth!

It was YOU who took me under your wing to teach me all about the F.D.A. Good Manufacturing Practices (F.D.A./G.M.P.'s), a complete system of accountability, control, and traceability on all Medical Devices manufactured. I simply could not have had the great career that I wound up having and now obtained 2 pensions without your mentoring and care.

Thank You sincerely, Don, for the Man that you were!

Carl Straus, Peabody Massachusetts.

Happy Birthday! A five-year celebration, can't believe it. Whatever will happen you will be with usw stronger than ever. You have a new great-great-nephewww Eli, born on Father's Day. How about that! Went to the boys' baseball game and did some reminiscing about your days in "little league". They didn't win but we had fun. You are with me every day.

Hi Uncle Donnie - I thought that as the years go on the grieving process would get easier but it doesn't. 10 years ago you were suppose to go on your dream vacation, but someone had a different journey for you. Just wish that you were still in the real life journey with us.

I went to a ceremony today to honor those lost and was given a letter to hold up at some point in the ceremony. All the letters made "God Bless America". As the ceremony started, I realized the woman handed me the D, not for just the ending of God, but D for your name. I'm so glad that I went today because I really didn't want to go and I would have missed your sign. I love getting your signs because it reassures me that you're still here with me.

Love and miss you not only today, but everyday.

Don,

Osama Bin Laden has now gone to face true justice. We promised we would never forget, and we haven't. As long as I live and breathe, whenever I hear 9-11-2001 mentioned, I will share your story and keep your memory alive. That is my personal promise to you. You were a great and noble human being who always helped me personally, as well as helping the world to heal and get better. I will honor you all the days of my life. Thank you for your influence upon me and my life. Rest In Peace, old friend. AMEN!!!

At last justice has been served. It's been a long time coming. We feel a sense of relief but that doesn't bring you and Janis back. Think of you all the time. Keep sending those message; they are well received and honored. Mom is well and misses you daily.

All my love

Dear Uncle Donnie,

We finally heard the words we've been waiting for. Osama Bin Laden is officially dead. It was announced on Sunday night, May 1, 2011. President Obama spoke about the mission and how diligent they were to find Osama. One quote that stuck out from his speech was: Disrupt, Dismantle, Defeat. That's exactly what our military (Navy Seals) carried out. Osama hid for 9 years, 7 months and 20 days but he finally met his fate and the USA found its justice.

On another note, I received the signs you sent me. Your first sign was Friday night through a scratch ticket. The winning numbers on the ticket were 9 and 11. What were the chances of me getting that when a bunch of tickets were handed out before I received the one I was given. The second sign was Saturday night. I was driving w/the kids and looked up at the sky and there was a shooting star going over us. I hope you still give me and others your signs. We love getting them because it shows that you're still with us even though we can't see you.

We all love and miss you. I hope you and Janis are dancing the nights away.

Love always,
Colleen

Don,
You were a great friend when I worked at Smith & Nephew. You showed me the light when my world didn't have any. I didn't know you were on the plane until a few years later. I have since said many prayers for you & your family. You will be forever missed & I will forever be grateful for everything you did for me. I am married with a liitle girl now and someday when she is old enough to understand I will try to explain 911 to her and how this world lost many wonderful people including you. I will teach her what you taught me about life, etc. Thank you fo being a great friend. Sadly missed.

Hi Uncle Donnie,

Navilyst played against the Boston Bruins Alumni team tonight in your honor. Bert sent me tickets to sell and the proceeds are going to your scholarship fund at Smith + Nephew. It was a great time and the score was, yes you guessed it, Navilyst 9 Bruins Alum 11. Bert and the team did a great job. Smith + Nephew celebrates your life and they respect you in a way (I feel) no other company would do.

Our friend, Russ' son Eric Currier passed away in Afghanistan on Wednesday, Feb 17th. Please watch over him for our friend.

Love and Miss You,

Hi Uncle Donnie,

I just wanted to let you know I received your sign last night. I was going to shut off the tv, but the recipient of the Madeline Sweeney award was going to be shown (She was the flight attendant on AA #11 ((the plane you were on)) that called to inform her supervisor what was happening). This annual award is given to a person that was involved in a civilian bravery act. As I waited for the commercials to end, the lottery numbers popped up. Guess what came up in the NH pick 4 numbers... 0994. The month and year of my wedding. I wish that I played the numbers.....

Thank you for the sign. It goes to show that you are still with us and watching over us.

Love,
Colleen

Hi Uncle Donnie,

Tomorrow will be the 8th yr anniversary and also my 15th wedding anniversary (I know, the big 15 this year!). What should have been a joyous day has now been filled with mixed emotions. Just think, 15 years ago you and cousin Susan were dancing up a storm at the reception. I think someone has that picture of you two laughing and dancing on the dance floor together. That picture will have to be posted to the site if it turns up.

Tomorrow will be the first time that I'm at work. Ever since the day it happened I've always taken the day off as I never know how I'll feel that day and I've also attended the memorial services. I now feel that I've had some closure and I will be able to handle it. As Leona Lewis sings in her song, "It all gets better in time" and that's what I repeat in my head all the time.

Also it seems that whenever I look at the clock it's always 9:11 am or pm. Don't ever stop sending us your "signs". I get them all the time and it gives me comfort knowing that you're still here with us.

We miss you!
Love,
Colleen

Dear Uncle Donnie,

Thank you very much for the sign today. I just happened to pull up to the local fire department to ask a question and a note on the door said Be right back, out front for 9/11 ceremony. I went out front and attended the service with you and Janis in my mind and heart. I really appreciate all the signs that you have given me over the years and I hope you keep sending them over the years. It's nice to know that you're still around watching us and it also lets us know that you are okay.

Went to Boston for the Memorial services that the City hosted on Sunday. The service was really nice, but brought back the sad memories from that day and the weeks following. Sitting in the room with all the people that also lost loved ones was overwhelming.

Don,

You were my mentor, friend, and immediate supervisor when I first entered the world of F.D.A./G.M.P. Medical Device Inspection and you had encouraged me to join the American Society for Quality and to go on to take the certification test to become a Certified Mechanical Inspector. I just can't thank you enough as it had opened many career options to me after I left Smith+Nephew Dyonics! I have been through 2 periods of total disability in my life now and I have you and George Briley to thank for being able to finish raising my 2 daughters as my ex-wife has been fully disabled since her second major car accident back in 1984. It was not an easy task as I am now permanently disabled with many mobility issues due to multiple joint diseases in my lower extremities and chronic depression. I now get 3 times what many other disabled people that I know get for a pension as you had challenged me to be more than average in my career aspirations. Little did I know that when God was calling you to train me right and require my best effort that he was also setting the stage to reward me with a disability pension that would allow me to finish raising my youngest daughter Heidi. She will start classes at the Le Cordon Bleu Institute of the Atlantic Culinary Academy at MacIntosh College, Dover, New Hampshire for dual Associates degrees in Culinary Arts and Liberal Arts in July 2005. I owe you and George my complete gratitude for helping me to still meet my fatherly responsibilities after much hardship and tragedy in my young life. I cannot thank you enough. I moved to Peabody almost 3 years ago, and I pass by the Knights of Columbus Hall on Main Street often. You are present with me here in town always, and in my heart forever! God rest your soul Don!!!

The weather is ideal. Looking out over the water and watching the boats come through the channel, expecting you and Jan to be paddling back from visiting your friends on the island. I made a blueberry pie and we'll put a candle on it just for you.

"Happy Birthday"

Love & Miss you

Hi Don: Today is July 2nd, Collin's first birthday. He missed your birthday by an hour and ten minutes. Tomorrow you would be 52. I wish you a Happy Birthday as I know you are watching over all of us. You would love playing with all your great nephews. They are so much fun. Colton Donald says his full name clear as a bell. When they are old enough to know, we will tell them about you and how much fun we always had together. Miss your smile, laugh and phone calls. We awarded the third scholarship to a member of the Lynn Tech Hockey Team. He played left wing and I would certainly get out of his way if he was coming down ice toward me. He is a big boy. The scholarship helps out young people starting their way in the work force or going on to college. We wish you were here with us. Love you.

Your sister Janice

Hi Uncle Donny - Thinking of you - Happy Birthday. I continue to receive "your signs". I see 9-11 everywhere it seems. Colton knows that his middle name is Donald and can say it clearly! Love, Ellen and all of the boys.
