Kristen Fiedel

At first, Lindsay Fiedel would jump up at the sound of the doorbell ringing. Perhaps it was Mommy, who had a special jingle to tell her 3-year-old daughter she was home.

Nearly two months later, the little girl knows the hard truth. Kristin Fiedel, a 27-year-old single mother from the Bronx, is never coming home.

Fiedel, who worked in the finance department at Marsh & McLennan, was on the 98th floor of Tower One on Sept. 11. She is among the missing from the terrorist attacks.

'The very first night, she said, ’Hurry up, Grandma, let’s go. Let’s go wait for Mommy,’' said Isabel Fiedel, Kristin’s mother, who lives two blocks from her daughter’s apartment. 'Now she says, ’Mommy’s gone. Mommy’s up in heaven.’ And she wipes away my tears.'

Isabel and Warren Fiedel, Kristin’s parents, don’t know a life without their daughter, the youngest of their three children.

Fiedel always lived at or near home. Her mother and daughter would meet her at the train station after work when the weather was nice, and the family ate dinner and spent the evenings together. Fiedel left her daughter with her parents at night so she could rise early to catch the train to work.

On weekends, mother, daughter and granddaughter were inseparable, going to the mall, concerts and amusement parks: fun for the baby and them, too.

'I’m a shopaholic just like my daughter,' Isabel Fiedel said. 'We just loved going to the mall. Once the baby was born, everything was centered on Lindsay.'

That meant going to the mall to stock up on a constant stream of toys and clothes for the baby.

The last pictures of Fiedel and her daughter together are from their trip to Palisades Mall in Rockland County on Sept. 9. Fiedel’s aunt, Marcia Costanzo, snapped pictures of the two on the roller coaster and Ferris wheel at the mall.

Now, the Fiedels say, they are paralyzed, trapped between the memories of their daughter and the need to move on with their lives.

Warren Fiedel is haunted by his daughter’s voice every time he misses a call on his cell phone. She recorded his message.

'As soon as I hear her voice, I can’t handle it,' he said. 'I hang up. I can’t listen to it now, but I won’t remove it.'

And Isabel Fiedel can’t bear to walk the two blocks to the train station.

'I stop at a certain point and I find myself turning around,' she said. 'I can’t go there.'

Kristen, Lindsay, Marcia & Family: I have worked for Marsh in Cleveland, OH for almost 29 years. Each anniversary, I visit the memorials for all of the Marsh colleagues we lost that day from A-Z. Reading Marcia's posts on raising Lindsay for the past 15 years have been the best and the hardest to read. Can't believe Lindsay was 3 years old on 9/11 and she will be turning 18 years old this year. May God Bless your entire family. I hope Lindsay reads Marcia's posts to Kristen some day and realizes although she lost her mother, she had someone extremely special who filled the void as well as she could. Marcia - you are truly an amazing guardian angel.

I am not doing so well. I was watching the 911 tributes tonight and was compelled to look online. I don't know how I got to this site except to say Kristen you brought me here. I can't believe you are gone. Kristen was my very first girlfriend who only showed me love and joy. Oh how the memories are flooding back. We met in 1995 at New York Life. I remember her bubbly personality, her spirit and who could not forget her smile! She had a heart of GOLD! I think I have the mug with your picture on it you gave me for college graduation. We had soo many good times. I can't believe you are gone. Kristen touched so many people lives. I am honored to say that I was one of the lucky ones. Everyone remembers their first girlfriend. I am so lucky to say Kristen was mine. You have a special place in my heart. You made me a better person. Thank You for bringing me to this site Kristen. I will never forget you.

It's been years, and even now can't bring myself to visit the site. Reading the tributes, this is the first time I'm compelled to write something about someone I knew briefly, but will never forget. Kristen was an absolute sweetheart, guess you can say we just 'clicked'. Goes without saying...her daughter is the light of her life. Both being parents, we'd talk about our kids, about work...about what we liked and didn't, and then we'd talk about each other. Whether it was listening to her talk about getting back adjustments on the train, or just having lunch outside in the plaza....I can't forget her. I miss her even today....a colleague, yes.....or more so, she was my friend. A piece of you will always be in my heart.

I knew Kristen in grade school and she lived a block away from me. My heart broke when i heard the news. She was a sweet girl, a true friend. I will keep you forever in my prayers. My only regret is that i didnt get to reconnect with her so i could see your smile and talk about old times. 😢

Marcia, it has been a while since I have visited this site. On the 11th anniversary, I did once again. I am the former Marsh employee who has a daughter close in age to Kristen's. Our daughters are both teens now. It still makes me sad to think about how much Kirsten is missing out on seeing her daughter grow up. My thoughts are with you and your niece on this anniversary.

I apologise for delving in to put a tribute when I did not even know you, but despite ten years growing up to exposure to such a terrible event I have been touched by your story unlike any other I have read. I wish your family the very best for the future, and hope your passing was quick and painless. RIP from Britain. x

I never knew you. I never knew your family. I am simply an American who came accross this site while remembering the horrible day. I clicked on one name at random and it was yours, Kristen. I just wanted to say that a random, fellow American living across the country in California, just a few years younger than you would be has had an impact from your story and wishes your children and family the best and may you all find peace and love and as I too have lost, be gratefull for the any memories, photographs and stories and knowing some day, you will see her again. God Bless America and God Bless your family.

Dearest sweet niece, Next Saturday is 9 years that you were taken from us. I remember the weekend before that day.You and Lindsey were with us for the weekend,as usual. When you were leaving and puuling out of the driveway, I never thought I wouldnt see you again.Lindsey forgot a Barbie doll,and I ran out to you as you were pulling out and handed it to Lindsey. Two days later our entire world changed. Kristen you are always in our thoughts and prayers,and of course still in Lindseys prayers every day. She is so like you, I know I keep repeating myself,but its sooo true. Thank God, because we are always reminded of you,every day. Rest in peace my sweet niece. Know that you were loved every day of your life on earth and will always be for eternity. your loving aunt that is missing you so, Aunt Marcia xxxxooooo

Dear sweet niece, forgive me for not writing for so long. Things are wonderful and life is so fulfilling and rewarding. Lindsey is the light of our lives,always was,and always will be. She is turning 12 in a couple of weeks and is a super tweenager. She looks more like you every day,every movement,every step,every gesture,her laugh,her voice,she's just you. What a blessing that is for us all.You are in our prayers nightly,and Lindsey always says' God bless,especially mommy'. I still get teary every night when she says it. Okay my sweetie, rest in peace and as always kiss our loved ones that have come to spend eternity with you. Love you, Aunt Marcia xxxxooo

My dear sweet niece, Well time has certainly passed. So much has happened and so many wonderful things regarding Lindsey. She is now in middle school,and is a true tweenager. She has become a beautiful young woman. Much like you,always was and now much more. Your friends are the best,always keeping up with me,asking about Lindsey, and saying the nicest things about you. I wish you were here to be with us in the physical life,even though I know you are watching us from above. I know you are happy about Lindsey and her life, and giving us the okay sign that we are doing a good job with her. We are extremely in love with her,as is everyone that knows her. She is just that type of girl. The apple doesnt fall far from the tree,that's for sure. Okay my sweetie, I will catch up with you another time. Peace be with you always. Say hi to grandma,pop-pop, Aunt Shelli, Aunt Gladys, Uncle Ruby, and all our other dearly departed family and friends that have gone to their eternal home.

Hi Sweetie, Well Christmas has come and gone.I am so sorry I havent written sooner. We are so busy all the time,its hard to keep up. We had a grand day and as usual missing you being there. Lindsey did rather well and received much of what she wanted. She is into Hannah Montana,the Jonas Brothers and anything to put in the Wii. Yes,its a new electronic toy,and she loves it. You put all sort of games in and you interact with it. You,my dear would love it too. Lindsey is so beautiful,getting real tall,and is becoming a wonderful young lady. Craig,and Michael were at the house yesterday too. We all ate Christmas dinner together,and were stuffed to the gills.One of Lindseys friends came over in the evening with her parents and stayed for a while. This year Lindsey wants a sleepover and a trip to the movies for her birthday. Seven girls,total,sleeping all over the floors.Yikes. It was better when she opted for her parties out with 20 or more friends. Oh well, times are changing and she is growing up. Okay,sweetie.I will go now and get ready to go bowling.Lindsey loves to bowl and is pretty good at it. I will write again,soon,probably after her birthday. My gosh,Kristen, she will be 11 years old next month. Love you,miss you, and we need you so much in our lives. With all my love your Aunt forever, Marcia xxxooooo

Hi Kristen honey, Well,here we are, and Lindsey started 5th grade today. Gosh,how fast time goes by. She is at your moms today,and I havent heard how she made out on her first day. I know she did well. I cant wait to see her Saturday so we can discuss everything. Tuesday she starts her 7th year at dancing school. Thats what she loves the best. This year she will be doing jazz and hip-hop. How great is that???????? Friday she starts bowling on her league again,and thats another favorite past time of hers. We just got back from a cruise.She had a ball. Lots of good times, great eats, and a wonderful trip all in all.She loves cruising and wants to go again after shcool finishes in June. Thats going to be a wait and see. We love you always and you are in our thoughts daily,more than you couild imagine. Its seven years next week,since you left our world, with us having empty hearts.Thank God for Lindsey. With her you kind of forget,and dont sweat the small stuff that people throw at us,and all the trivial crap that this world is throwing at us. We know how short our time here on earth is and we have to make the best of what we have,and be happy in it. Okay my sweet niece, rest in peace,love to all of our departed.We miss you all every day love Aunt Marcia xxxoooo

Hi again sweetie,well the holidays are over and everything is quiet and peaceful.Well,as peaceful as it can be with a 10 year old running around. Would you believe,that it's almost Lindsey's 10th birthday. We are having her party at an arts and crafts place. Lots of kids as usual will be joining her. We are all well here and we think and talk about you all the time.Lindsey adds an extra special 'God Bless mommy' after her prayers every night.Please keep her in your thoughts,and prayers as well,as I know you have a greater connection to God than we do. Until next time,my sweet angel, kiss everyone for me,especially grandma and pop-pop. Gosh,I miss them so,as I do you. Love you,your Aunt Marcia xxxooooo

Hi sweetie, well it's been too long since I last spoke to you like this. Time is going so fast,and we are so busy,all day every day. Lindsey keeps me hopping,no lie. Every day is something else,and then of course there's school and loads of homework. Wow,fourth grade is exhausting(lol). I remember you and your brothers coming to grandma's house to do homework when we were there on Thursday's. I was shocked then,and boy am I shocked now. Several years later,and I of course being several years older makes it tougher for me to grasp.We are getting through it,and most of all Lindsey understands most of it,and I am learning from her. Aint that a kick????? Gosh how I wish you were here.I always wonder how it would have been be if you were here raising her and doing all the mommy and daughter things together. I just hope I am doing right by her,and doing things the way I know you would have. I know Lindsey is truly happy,and is more of a social butterfly than I thought anyone can be. She has so many friends,and is loved by everyone. She is so giving and compassionate .She took her snack money from her school lunchwallet and put it in the UNICEF box she received at school for Halloween. Okay my love,I just needed to talk to you amd I find doing it this way is easy for me. Rest in peace,and give hugs and kisses to all of our departed love ones.I know you are with them and watching us here each day. Knowing that truly helps us here on earth.Love Aunt Marcia

Hi sweetie, its January 21st and Lindsey's 9th birthday. Its hard to believe,but true. She had a great birthday party yesterday and shared it with 21 of her friends. God how I wish you were here with her,physically, to be a part of her day.I know you were watching her from your home in heaven,so I do not feel too bad about that. She is doing very well in school,3rd grade and is doing multiplication and soon will be starting division. Yikes, I cant believe it. You were so good in math,and I am quite sure she has those quality's too. Please watch over her,and guide her along the way. We are missing you,as always,every day,every night. Till I write again to you,I will have you in my thoughts,as always. Love your aunt Marcia xxxxooooo

Hi again sweetie,Its almost Christmas and getting very hectic around here. The lights are up outside and tomorrow the Christmas tree goes up.Lindsey cant wait.She also gets to decorate her Barbie tree. Third grade is going well and she made lots of new friends.Now the issue is,where is she going to have her birthday party.She is thinking of lots of places but didnt decide yet. We miss you lots and wish you were here with us to celebrate the holidays. Rita always misses you're being with her at her house to decorate her tree. She tells me that every Christmas. Okay honey, catch you again real soon.Love you much, miss you more,as do we all. Oh my gosh,I forgot again,Lindsey is so like you,looks and all,more and more each day. Its great,its like having you here with us,in a sense. p.s. to anyone that is interested,there is a picture of Lindsey on the CNN 9/11 memorial site. (I hope this goes through,please!!!!!)

Kristen was one of the sweetest people i have ever known. she had the biggest heart that could ever beat in any one person's chest. she was also one of the most unselfish people, that i could have had the honor of knowing. We met at a Halloween Dance at school, and dated for 9 months, and though we dated for such a short time, the memories, of knowing such a sweet endearing person will live on forever. my prayers will always go out to her family whom i hope are doing as well as can be.

Hi Kristen,well here it is Sept.8th and its just days short of five years that you were taken from us. We are not prepared to see and hear everything all over again about what happened on that day in 2001. Its not reasonable to me,yet I know it has to be,that it be told over and over again about that horrendous day. We will be attending a service here in Rockland,at a place you would have loved. Its a beautiful setting,on the Hudson River, with a fabulous playground where Lindsey loves to play. We will be thinking of you and praying for you,and missing and loving you on that day,and every day for the rest of our lives here on earth. Rest in peace my sweet niece with love from all of us here,where we wait until its time to be with you for eternity. Your loving Aunt Marcia xxxoooo

My dearest niece,its June and school is almost out.Lindsey is excited to go into third grade in September. Next Sunday is her dance recital and the rehearsals are this Thursday and Friday. She loves dancing and has a great time. You must be so proud of her,as I know you are watching her do her dance for the show and everything else she is involved in. Camp will be starting up soon too. Time goes by so quickly,its amazing. I wish I had some signs from you,I never do. If only you would let me know you are okay,and happy at your eternal rest.I cant believe its almost five years since you left us. It feels like yesterday.I remember the call you gave me on Monday night,on your way home from work. The next day you were gone. It breaks my heart every time I think of the words you said on the phone.Well thats all for now my sweet one. Love you lots,miss you more. Aunt Marcia xxxxxxxxxxoooooooo

My dearest niece, well Lindsey's birthday came and went.It was fabulous. By the way it was the first time since she was born that there wasnt a snow storm. She prayed everynight from the middle of December for it not to snow,and by God it didnt.It was a miracle.I think she willed the good weather from the day she started to pray because the winter has been great.We finally had a big snow storm last week but then it got so warm again that the snow is almost gone,20 inches of it. I found a picture of you the other day,and Kristen,its you all over again,in Lindsey. The only difference between you and her is your hair color and your eye color. God how I wish you were here to see her. She is getting so big and so mature. You would be so so proud of her,as we all are. I miss you so much,it still hurts,and there are days when I still dont believe you are gone. The time is fleeting by,and the only thing that makes sense about that is that we are that much closer to being with you again. Some of us sooner,some later but in the end,we will all be together,forever. Be at peace and keep watching over us. Love you always Aunt Marcia xxxxxxoooo

My dearest niece,Well here it is almost Christmas again,and of course Lindsey's 8th birthday in January.Her birthday and Christmas list gets longer every year. She is having a bowling party this year,with maybe 25-30 kids.No kidding.She has so many friends.Everyone loves her,and loves being with her.She isnt too spoiled,just so you know that,but you do,I am sure,and I hopeful of that. Lindsey is doing well in 2nd grade,and loves math. I guess she takes after you for that. And of course your dad.(lol) We are all doing well,and loving every minute nurturing and taking care of Lindsey.She brightens our day,every day,no matter if we are down in the dumps or not. Oh,I forgot to mention, we got a kitten at the end of September.Her name is Sasha. Lindsey is crazy about her,and doesnt let that poor kitty alone.Of course Sasha loves it. She even says she reminds her of Pookie. You would love her,as I remember you loved Pookie so much.I believe Pookie left this world to join yours after you left. Well my dear niece,until I write again,know you are in all of our thoughts,daily. We love you and miss you so much. Aunt Marcia love from all,and Sasha too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can not believe it has now been four years since that tragic day. I didn't want to watch all of the programming that dealt with 9/11, but I couldn't not watch it. I don't ever want to forget what happend, not that I ever would. While I was employed by Marsh, (up until 12/05) my co-workers and I would always take the afternoon of Sept. 11th off. We would all go to a local pub and drink to our fallen colleagues. This year I sat with one of dear Marsh friends, watched TV, and cried. I can only imagine how you, Marcia, dealt with all of the sadness. It sounds like you and Lindsey are doing well. She must be a lovely young lady. I am very glad that Lindsey is looking and acting more and more like Kristen every day. I hope this brings you some comfort. May you and Lindsey stay strong, healthy & happy through out next year.

Hello again,my dear niece. Summer is almost over,and Lindsey is getting ready to go to second grade.Can you imagine that??? She is still in summer camp,which will be over in two weeks.She is swimming in the deep end of the pool now,even diving. She takes right after you. Your mom always says that.You used to go to the bottom of the pool and knew your way around like a fish. We are going to go to Hershey park at the end of the month for four days.Lindsey cant wait.I wish you were here to go with us,I know you would be the first one to jump on the roller coaster. I on the other hand am not looking forward to those rides. Be with us on those days and watch over Lindsey on the rides and keep us all safe. Today my heart has been breaking and I am saddened by the eeaths of all your colleagues , and of course yourself ,on that terible day when you left us.I saw first hand what you must have went through,and I pray to God you never knew yourself what happened.I havent watched nor listened to any of that day's happenings.It was just too much to know about.Today, was a different day, I saw it all and it brought me down to where I thought I wouldnt be again. You were so loved and still are,and will always and forever be in our thoughts and hearts. By the way, what do you think of Lindsey's smirk???? We tell her its just like your's , and so she does it all the time. She says 'look at my smirk, I look like mommy. Well my sweet niece, I will catch up with you soon,I promise. I miss you so much,and today you were in my mind all day. It was a bittersweet day,seeing the horrific deeds of that day,but then you came into my mind and here I am.. Love you, Aunt Marcia xxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooo

Once again, as I read all of the tributes to my fallen colleagues, it is Marcia's tributes to Kristen that I find so moving. As I wrote last year, I have a daughter who is very close in age to Lindsey. They appear to enjoy the same activities. As a mom, I don't want to miss out on anything that my Rebecca takes part in. I think of Lindsey and Kristen often, even though I never knew either one of you. As I was taking a picture of my little girl on her first day of second grade, I thought of you. It is so tragic that Kristen will never know the joy of watching her daugter skip off to her first day of first grade. My father passed away last month, and I like to think he is an angel watching over me. Kristen is an angel watching over Lindsey. As the third anniversary of that tragic day approaches, I want you to know my thoughts are with you and your family. We will never forget!! Please take care.

Although you and I never spent a lot of time together, you would sometimes give me spare change when I needed it and even tell me that everything was going to be okay. These past years have been harder without you. Knowing that those terrorists have taken one of many souls who were not longed for this earth. In effect, stealing one of the only truly dear and good people I ever had the pleasure to know. I miss you. You are in my heart forever. -Mike

As a 25 year employee of Marsh, I was very affected by the events of September 11th. I have been drawn to this web site all week, once again, reading all of the wonderful tributes to our fallen collagues. I did know many of the claim collagues that died that day as I have worked in Claims my entire career at Marsh. I just wanted to say I have never been more moved than reading the postings from Marcia, Kristen's aunt. They bring me to tears. This summer I brought my six year old to Disneyworld for the first time. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. It pains me to know that Kristen never got to experience the joy in bringing her daughter, Lindsey, to Disneyworld. Marcia, you sound like an amazing person. Lindsey is so lucky to have you in her life. The most gut wrenching posting was when Lindsey got off the bus on her first day of Kindergarten. No mother deserves to miss out out this occasion. May heart goes out to the entire family of Kristen. I weep for you all and wish you the very best. Take care.

LINDSEY TURNED FIVE LAST WEEK, YES YOU KNOW THAT,AND WE ARE HAVING A PARTY FOR HER THIS SATURDAY. ALL YOUR FRIENDS WILL BE HERE. THEY HAVE BEEN SO COMPASSIONATE, WONDERFUL AND SUPPORTIVE. SHE WAS SICK LAST WEEK SO WE HAD TO CANCEL. I KNOW YOU KNOW THAT TOO. I ASKED FOR YOU TO COME ACROSS AND SPEED UP HER RECOVERY AND YOU DID. ITS TOO SILLY TO SAY,BUT YOU CAME ACROSS LOUD AND CLEAR. WE MIGHT TAKE HER ON THE DISNEY CRUISE THIS SUMMER,YOU WANTED TO DO THAT WHEN SHE TURNED FIVE. I REMEMBER YOU LOOKING UP THE INFO ON THE INTERNET AND THAT WAS A FEW YEARS AGO. LINDSEY WAS JUST A SMALL TODDLER. YOU WERE ALWAYS THINKING OF HER. TAKE CARE MY SWEET ANGEL,AND KNOW YOU ARE THOUGHT ABOUT EACH AND EVERY DAY,BY EVERYONE THAT SHARED YOUR LIFE.

I did not know Kristen. I have been reading through the Tributes, and my heart is touched and saddened for Kristen's daughter, her parents, her family and friends. Each memorial tribute personalizes the grief of that terrible day. Kristen, and all who were lost, will never be forgotten. May that bring some comfort to those who knew and loved her.

Dearest Kristen, We never met, but you hold a very special place in my heart. You and my brother, Wayne Russo, were very good friends as well as coworkers. I know Wayne is taking very good care of you in Heaven as he always took very good care of me here on Earth. My parents and I put a picture of the two of you up in the family room at Ground Zero. You both look so happy. You are constantly in my thoughts. I know we could have been friends. We have something in common - we are both Mommys to beautiful little girls. I know your sweet Lindsey will grow up to be a wonderful person, just like her Mom. I hope I get to meet her one day. I wish your family peace. I know both you and Wayne are sad to see your families so unhappy. You are a special person, and I will always remember the sacrifice you made on September 11th. You will never be forgotten, Kristen. You will remain in my heart forever. Please tell Wayne how much I love him. Until we finally do meet in that beautiful place... Love, Lynne

I never knew my second cousin, Kirsten, but I feel so deeply for her loss and for her family. We visited New York one month after 9/11 and I reconnected with my cousin Warren (Kirsten's father) who I hadn't seen in over 40 years. We continue to talk on the phone and I relish our new relationsihip. He is a loving, devoted father--a very good man. Kirsten meant the world to him. I send a prayer for the healing of the family as they go through this difficult time.

MY NIECE KRISTEN WAS THE WARMEST KINDEST SOUL AND WAS ALWAYS THERE TO LEND A HAND TO ANYONE SHE KNEW,AND ESPECIALLY HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY. I FOR ONE KNOW THAT FIRST HAND.SHE TOOK ME EVERYWHERE I NEEDED TO GO,BECAUSE I DIDNT DRIVE. SHE HELPED HER FRIENDS WHEN THEY NEEDED HELP. WE MISS HER AND TODAY, ON MOTHERS DAY WE PRAY FOR HER SOUL AND HOPE SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE AND LOOKING DOWN AT US AND SAYING THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES,AND FOR TAKING SUCH GOOD CARE OF LINDSEY. LINDSEY IS JUST STARTING TO TALK ABOUT HER OPENLY,AND IT HURTS SO MUCH. SHE IS SO YOUNG AND I CANT STAND THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED,ITS SO UNFAIR.
