17 Years Later...We Shall Never Forget

Message: My darling LeRoy, before I start my letter to you, I would like to thank all the known and unknown people, who gave tribute to you.Your words have warmth my heart and have given me comfort and a vision of how caring, loving and compassioned people can be. We are all people of God and wish for peace,unity and brotherhood. My heart ache' for everyone, who has lost a loved one during September 11,during any war, and especially now in Iraq.Please, dear God bring comfort to all!LeRo, my darling you stole my heart on August 27, 1965 when I held you for the first time in my arms. You were a loving child, who held on tightly to my leg, where ever I went. Your dreams were my dreams, and when Daddy died, one day before your eleventh birthday, you tried to be the man of the house.My sweet, sweet boy.Every step you took became a success, because you were modivated,thoughtful, kind, humble and filled with humor and great spirit. You were a great brother, friend and family man.You loved Melodie with all of the love you had to give and you adored our little Laurel. She still kisses your picture and tells me :"I miss my Daddy." Life can never be the same without you. Your friends feel your loss as much as we, your family do.I just had another poem published in your memory. It came out two weeks ago.I am going to write it now for you, because only through my poetry can I express my sorrow for the loss of you. 9-11 Heartbreak....Today is just another day of heartbreak and of sorrow. The tears shall never wash away, the linger past tomorrow.Concealt forever in my heart, despair can't be consoled. Abandoned by my inner strength, these tears flow uncontrolled. In nature I have often found a soothing resting place. A haven for my wishful dreams, a source of calm and grace. Between the rocks and sprigs of green I'll rest and pray for peace.Although, you have left my side, dear son, your soul has found release. I look upon the stars at night,they are so far away. God took your hand and brought you there on your darkest day. Each day I try to draw my strength from memories of you. Without your picture in my heart, I might have vanished too. In ever changing moments I listen and I hear your softly spoken words, assuring me you're near. As look back on the years gone by, I thank our Lord for you. You have been the greatest gift, it's your Mom's point of view. Farewell for now, rest in peace, your light will always shine, You are a hero to the world, no more are you just mine. Stay safe, fly with God, sunshine of my life. Forever and ever, your mourning, loving Mom

Message: LeRoy, my sunshine, since Daddy past away so long ago, I am writing a message in his honor to you. I know of his love for you and I can speak through him to you. He would say : LeRoy, you have given me joy since the day you were born. I am sad, that I could not be with you during your childhood, teenage years and manhood. You were always my pride and joy.You have enriched my life, brought me happiness, and made me see the world through the eyes of an amazing young boy. Your warmth, gentleness, love and curiosity, and the love for all living things have made me always wonder, what have I done to deserve such a gift from God.If I have ever forgotten to say :" thanks " to you for the love and campassion you have given to me, please remember that all these warm feelings were in my heart. You knew how much you were loved, I am just so sorry that I had to die so early in your young life and had to leave Mommy to care for four such small children on her own. I know we will be together in a place where sorrow and pain does not exsist and our love will be celebrated among the very best , who died on 9-11 at all four places, each of you heros to the world. All my love, your Dad

Message: I'm watching a movie that honors you and the other people on Flight 93 with tears in my eyes and sorrow in my heart but also with gratitude and hope that, at the worst moment of all, men like you, Leroy, could be so heroic and show the world what humanity and human decency are. The men who hijacked the planes that day tried to take away our faith and our hope. You restored those to us. Thank you.
