Hello- my name is Bill Knickerbocker, and on Septemebr 11th I was a resident at James Tower where Nancy lived. I also worked accross the street from the Trade Center at 2 World Financial Center. I will never forget the feeling when I walked in 101 West 90th a few days later and saw Nancy's missing poster hanging in the lobby. You see- among the many residents in that building, there was one at the time that stood out, and that was Nancy. This wasn't just because she always had her bike with her (a reminder that it was time to start working out), but more because she always seemed like such a happy, friendly person, always greeting a neighbor with a smile. Although at the time I didn't even know her by name (the extent of our conversations were limited to elevator and lobby small talk), I knew she was a special person that was loved by many. I recently found this tribute to her and know that I was right. On this 10th anniversary, I think and pray often about the victims and their families, and Nancy and those who loved her are at the top of the list. I hope that my entry provides some comfort for what you already know- that Nancy is still with us and will not be forgotten- even by an acquaintance that was lucky enough to call her neighbor.
God Bless,
Bill

I have thought about Nancy often over the years. I have thought about how hard this must have been for her family, especially her parents. Tonight, as the death of Bin Laden is announced to the world, I find myself thinking about you all again and hoping that in some small way, a moment of peaceful satisfaction has helped in your healing process.

Dear Suri and Hanie,
It is so hard to believe it has been 8 years since this senseless tragedy happened. Time marches on but our thoughts and prayers are always with our loved ones.
I have passed around the beautiful book you sent me to my family members and they all have been touched and inspired by this amazing book. It is a tribute to Nancy. Although I have never met you or Nancy, I have felt a kinship as we have the same last name. My family was from Lublin, Poland and from Minsk. So there is a chance we may be related. Whenever I feel a little down, I pick up the book and start reading it all over again. I get inspired and go out into the community and volunteer. It makes me feel so alive.
Thank you for sending the book. It has changed my life.

With warmest regards.
Martha Morgenstern Soltesz

Dear Suri & Haney,
I missed seeing you and your beautiful family at the Nancy Morgenstern Memorial bike race this September. I was not bike racing, but running with my daughter, Lark! OY...the hills! I did a 5k running race in Nancy's honor on 9/6/2009 on Govenor's Island. Much to my delight I won my age group (womens 40+) The bibs were imprinted "Jane Berger running in memory of her friend Nancy Morgenstern" It was a thrill to hear our names called as I crossed the finish line. Nancy has always been inspiring to me in so many ways...in sports to race thru the pain! All the best, Jane (Moloney) Berger

I found your link after reading a bicycle favorite blog, http://cozybeehive.blogspot.com. This is a favorite bicycle site visited by bicyclist all over the country. That article is still up on the site. It featured the authors visit to ground zero, and he saw the picture of Nancy and published, hoping that someone could shed some light on her. It did not take long for the information to be put on the blog. After I saw that picture of Nancy and that all embracing smile, I knew that I must know more. I read most of the site about her and now have it as one of my "favorites". The testimonies and especially the Torah Perspective was so thoughtfully written and brings a greater understanding of how special Nancy was. I am learning from her.

This is also a personal message for me. I live in Somerset, PA. On 9-11, United flight 93 went down near here and with the aircraft traveling 450 MPH, all the local people I know were 8 Seconds from death, depending on how the aircraft tracked. A temporarily memorial site is set up at the crash site near Shanksville, Somerset County, PA. My oldest son also lived in Arlington, VA at the time, so it felt as if my family was under attack.

I am an avid bicyclist. I follow the racing scene and also participate in bicycle tours every year as active vacations. Many people in this area also ski as Seven Springs and Hidden Valley ski resorts are in our county. Ski is also a way of life for me. But how Nancy practiced her active lifestyle is a true inspiration, so I have requested this book to share with both my sons and their wives. The oldest now lives in Cincinnati and the youngest in Rockaway, NJ. That picture of Nancy is a true blessing to everyone that sees it.

Dear Nancy's Parents and Family,

I am an USA Cycling Official from Massachusetts and a few years back I received Nancy's Book at the fall race in her memory and started to read it before the start of the race at Harrimann State Park. I was really touched by the way the letters to you helped me see the Nancy you raised and loved, as I had not meet her.

Dear Suri & Haney & Tzivi,

I'm sorry I couldn't be with you on 9/11 this year but I was thinking of you the whole day and how it all feels like yesterday. Nancy is still very much alive in our hearts and not a day goes by that I do not think of her. She would laugh that great laugh of hers if she knew I got married & had moved to California! But I'm sure she does, and I'm sure she watches all of us everyday. We all talk about her and quote her often. Speaking with Tzivi and you always comforts me.

Love Mindy
