DEAREST STEVEN,
I HAD A BAD FEELING YOU WENT TO WORK ON THE 11TH. YOU WERE THE FIRST PERSON TO RUN THROUGH MY MIND OTHER THAN MY COWORKERS FROM THE 16TH FLOOR.

DURING THAT HOUR I KEPT THINKING HOW YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN. THE LIFE LONG MEMORY OF YOU GETTING ME OVER MY FEAR OF HEIGHTS BY MAKING ME COME TO THE 107TH FLOOR THAT DAY. YOUR INFECTIOUS SMILE AND HOW DAMN TALL YOU WERE!!!

I REALLY DIDNT GET CONFIRMATION THAT YOU WERE REALLY THERE UNTILL 9-03 WHEN I SAW YOUR FACE ON THE TV SCREEN. ALTHOUGH I HAD A GUT FEELING ALL THE WHILE, I STILL SHED THAT ONE TEAR WHEN I SAW YOUR SMILE COME ACROSS THE SCREEN. YOU GREW UP SO HANDSOME.

I HEAR YOU HAVE A WIFE. I HOPE SHE IS WELL. SHE REALLY LOST A STUNNING PERSONALITY IN YOU BUT IM SURE SHE SMILES WHEN SHE REMEMBERS HOW YOU MADE HER LAUGH.

I HAVE A BACKGROUND PICTURE ON MY COMPUTER OF THE BLUE MEMORIAL LIGHTS SHING UP TOWARDS THE HEAVENS. EVERY DAY I SEE IT I SAY HELLO TO YOU AND THE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS AND HOPE ALL OF YOUR SOULS ARE AT PEACE.

STEVEN YOU HAPPEN TO BE THE ONE PERSON I KNEW THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME AT DEAN WITTER REYNOLDS BUT HAVE THE MOST POIGNANT MEMORIES OF.

I ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR THAT.
YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN MY MIND AS THE SAME BEAUTIFUL PERSON I KNEW BACK IN THE DAY.

BE AT PEACE MY FRIEND I WILL WRITE AGAIN AS I CANT POSSIBLY FORGET SUCH A SOUL AS YOU. MY ONLY REGRET NOW IS NOT KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND NOT BEING ABLE TO TELL YOUR WIFE FACE TO FACE HOW LUCKY SHE WAS TO HAVE YOU FOR THE TIME SHE DID. YOU ARE MY FRIEND. KEEP SMILING UP THERE, WE CAN FEEL IT DOWN HERE.

MOST RESPECTFULLY,
A FRIEND
