Pierre - my thoughts are with you this morning.


What a beautiful tribute to your friend. I'm so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts today are with all those New Yorkers who lost family and friends. God bless you all.


I am truly sorry for your loss. I shed a few tears for Andy and the others today as well.

Please send me the name of Andy's charity. I'd like to contribute.


That... is such a eloquent tribute. So often it is hard to put into words what you want to say, to help people understand your feelings. I feel you've given us a window into your heart.


Wow. I hope that writing this was somewhat cathartic for you, if even for a minute. That was beautifully written.

Mr. Big Dubya

Nothing I can say other than...

Sorry. Our condolences to you, BossLady and all your friends whose lives were so profoundly touched by Andy.

That's all I got. I'm sorry.


BIG hug.


Great post. I wish that all of us could have such a friend.


Moved to tears, too.

Lifting my glass in Andy's honor.



We should all be so lucky to have a friend like Andy in our life. But we would also be lucky to have a friend like you. Beautiful post, MD. Made this old man's eye well up with tears.


Not living in New York, I think a lot of us forget the lasting pain and sorrow that 9/11 caused so many people who lost friends and family. I'm so sorry for your loss. This was a very beautiful tribute to your friend Andy. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Wow. That is a beautiful letter.

I am so sorry you lost your friend. He sounded like a wonderful guy.

Hope you and your family are doing ok.


Thanks for having the courage to share this with all of us. I hope you can at least take solace from the fact that you've clearly held on to your friendship in many ways. It sounds as if you were truly blessed to have had Andy in your life, even though your time together was years shorter than it should've been.

Thanks again.


Wonderful letter. The best anyone can do is love those around them, and when they go, their love is still felt. He did it well I see.

I would have loved to have known him. He sounds like an awesome person.

I've always been slightly envious of people who had such close friends. As you get older, I think you'll find that special friendships like these are a very rare thing. You're lucky to have had such a friend. I'm sorry for your loss.


Great post, Metro. Thanks for sharing this with us. My heart goes out to all New Yorkers who lost friends and family on 9/11. Always remember.


Wow. As politicized as 9/11 has become, your note and today's readings really bring home the human side of the tragedy. Very moving and heartfelt, and my condolences for your loss. It never gets any easier...


You are really a fantastically gifted writer. After reading this, I was so moved and I felt like I really knew your friend Andy. I lost a good friend of mine last year to cancer. It's been tough but I try to remember and celebrate her life as well. Sorry for your loss.


Hearing parents and family read off the names of their loved ones yesterday killed me.


tears, hugs, and a toast to your beautiful toast to your friend, metro.


You and Andy were lucky to have each other. Thanks for sharing about your beautiful friendship.

Hugs from Kentucky.


A fabulous tribute. Thank you for sharing yourself. Andy was lucky to have a friend who loved him so much.


That was truly a beautiful and touching post, MD. I'm so sorry that you lost such a close friend. Thanks for sharing it with us. My heart goes out to all you New Yorkers who lost friends and family on 9/11.


I'm sorry. I wish Peanut could have met him.


Cheers, MD. Great friends create great friendships. Thanks for this reminder to value them every day.


Aside from my husband, I've never had THAT great of a friend - no one like Andy, that's for sure. I can't begin to imagine your loss.


I'm sorry to weigh in so late on this, but I am so moved by your loss. Maybe it's because I lost a best friend named Andrew (to AIDS in 1983) and I still miss him terribly.

Kisses to you.


Thanks for sharing. I'm such a whimp and can't hold tears back when I read this. You should put a NSFW warning on this kind of writing. Here I am crying at work which is a testosterone filled trading room where you don't cry regardless of what happens.


What a beautiful frienship. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.


Wow, what a special person he was, and what a tremendous loss for those who loved him. I'm sorry, thank you for sharing this with us.
