I went to the the memorial and got a writing of your name. I wish you were and and everyone else who died to save this country. When I think about anything smilar to what happened i think of you and america. Kelsey and her family are doing great. But i know Kelsey would want u to know this she would say "I love you" that is from kelsey. I wish u were here. Here is a poem for u: Love con touch someone heart like a child being born, or a daughter growing up, Love can touch someones heart, like a daddy coming back from war, or a grandma getting surgery, love can touch someones heart, love is powerful, love is strong in so many ways. by Rio p.s. I wish you were here.

Message: Hi Bill - You probably don't remember me. I worked in the bank in the town you grew up in. (Nunda, NY) Your sister worked with me for awhile. You came from a great family. Your brother lives just up the street from me now and I see him often. I am so sorry for the way your life was taken. So many tears were shed. It is something that changed my life forever knowing how fast our lives can change. WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!

Message: It's been 5 years and I still cannot forget the feelings I had when Shutts told me about your leaving us. That plane took so much from all of us, yet it did not take you spirit and influence. It's obvious that you are still being a father and Dad to your children. Not a bad feat. Our friendship is still teaching me lessons. I'm proud of you. You will always be a role model for me. Susan misses you as well. Your star continually gets brighter as the years pass. Love Bobhead and dusanhea.

Message: Hi, Commander Donovan and I played recreational lunch-time soccer at the Pentagon. I retired a few years back from the Army. The Pentagon Soccer Club named its Cup in your honor... The Donovan Cup. The Club was on on the soccer field in Arlington today and honored your memory with a moment and the display of a large US flag and then played its normal lunchtime game. Fitting. (local TV even showed it briefly tonight...Channel 4- NBC in DC). The catch that I did not know until today is that your hometown is Nunda, New York, where my grandmother lived her whole life and my Mom was born and went to high school. Poignant. I grew up in nearby Ontario County. Best to your family and children. Peace.
