2,996 a Tribute to Peter A. Siracuse

I've struggled for weeks about what I would write on this day. I've struggled trying to sort through my feelings and thoughts. It is difficult to express how I feel when reflecting on the events of this tragic day 5 years ago. I know that my struggle with a simple post is nothing compared to what Peters family went through when he was killed on September 11, 2001. Peter A. Siracuse 29, was in/at the world trade center on September 11, 2001. He had a wife Alana and a son Ryan Joseph. My greatest wish is that his family will find peace and hope in this world without their loved one. I pray for the continued remembrance of this day. May we all take a moment to reflect and never forget. God bless Peters family, friends and all that were touched by his life and vivacious way of living. I was particularly touched by this note I found from Peters brother. Not knowing Peter myself I wanted to share words from someone that did. Dear Pete, It has been two year since that tragic day in which you left us here to go to a better place. There is never a day that goes by that I do not think of you. It could be a song on the radio or a little kid on a bike that brings me so many happy thoughts of our childhood together. I brought Mom and Alana to your resting place at the foot of Tower One on 9/11 and we prayed for the day when we all could be together again. I know that you are watching over Ryan as we are. He will come to know you through the many stories and photos that we hold close to our hearts. I Love you and miss you and look forward to a time when we can play a round on the ultimate course with THE GUY. You will live forever within each of us. Love Your Brother, George Expert from 9/11 site Information gathered from Legacy.com and the Peter A. Siracuse foundation. For all other participants, please visit 2,996 .

Beautiful tribute. You brought Peter to life for me, and left me just a little sadder on this sad day. My heart goes out to his family.
