I think about the both of you and Nancy on many occasions. It is so heartwarming to see all the good things that are being done LEILU NISHMAS CHANA PEREL.May you both have a lot of nachas from your wonderful family and a gezunta gebenchta year.
All our warm wishes Rhoda and Yechiel.
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.

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"
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."
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.
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.
Though I was far away in Israel on 9/11 and though I live so far away now in Australia, your pain is real and palpable.
BUt what shines through is a remarkable person who you were lucky to know.
May Hashem send you true comfort and reunite you and Nancy with the coming of Moshiach.
I am an only child but I always wanted a sister or a brother. If I could have had a sister I would have wanted her to be just like Nancy. I never met Nancy but I miss her. Thank you God for letting us have Nancy for the short while we had her.
