It's now 14 years. I can't believe it. Now I have two kids that you would have enjoyed interacting with. Needless to say, we miss you terribly and pray for you and Shakila Bhabi. I hope we can meet you again, maybe in the afterlife.....till then....Kamal

Dear Miah: I am so sorry it has taken me so long to say these things. For so long I could not deal with the pain. I worked with you at Johnson & Higgins for many years. I went to Marsh uptown and you to WTC. You were so good to me always especially when I was a single mom struggling through a very bad pregnancy. You were so kind to me from helping me catch a quick nap, bringing me lunch, telling me to put my feet up, or telling me the boarding was breaking early so I could leave the office and rest. You have a heart of gold. My son is now 20 years old and I took him to the memorial to show him the man who helped me through the toughest time in my life. My son said to your picture "thank you so much for helping my mom get through a tough time and caring for her", of course I cried my eyes out. You were one of the kindness and sweetest men I have known in my live and I will never forget you. I miss you dear friend. Thank you for all of your kindness and for just being the person you were. I know you are in the arms of God.

Nurul Bhai and Shakila Bhabi, we miss you dearly even after 13 years. There is this void in our hearts that will not be filled. I just pray that you RIP....I will never forget you both.

Miah, this is Joe, Joe Smith. I am sorry that it has taken me nearly 13 years to say these things and actually begin to deal with the horrors of 9/11 -- simply put, too painful. I will forever remember, treasure and learn from our time together at Johnson & Higgins, 125 Broad Street, NYC. I remember your optimism, always smiling and cheerful, especially during rough times. Yes, I am still grumpy, LOL, but beginning to understand your outlook on life. 'Don't take things so serious Joe, smile.' Oh boy, I could go on but will stop here. More than a colleague, I miss you my friend and try to emulate the cheerfulness and humility that flanked your wisdom. I still shed tears but now they strengthen rather than sadden me. Joe.

I met Nurul Miah roughly two years before his tragic passing. In that short time, he made a space in our heart. He was a kind, funny and a wonderful human being...full of life. I remember going to his one year wedding anniversary party. He loved his wife and loved life....that's how I will always remember him. May God rest your soul and Shakila Bhabi as well.....Kamal

Even though I was just a little girl I still remeber you. You were always a great brother in law to my brother Dan! I hate that this had to happen =( never had I thought it would. I think if you were still around our family would have been even closer and Yanni would be inspired by you on a great man you've become. May you rest in peace and I will always make sure 'your nephew and my nephew' Yanni will always be taken cared of. Miss you =(

Miah my friend, just want to say gone but never forgotten. Funny how people could come into your life for a short time but leave a lasting impression. I am keeping that sun shinning :-)

What a terrible loss it has been for people who knew Nurul bhai. He left such a void in our lives. I miss him terribly but remember him with a smile. Not doing so, would be injustice to his memory. May you and Shakila bhabi rest in peace along with everyone else who lost their lives on that day.....

Ahhh, I was just telling my daughter about you; how funny you were, sincere and full of life. FYI, I am still trying to keep the sunshine alive and most of all I always try to have a bright sunshine on Monday mornings (I have missed a few); but I think about it everytime. Here is one just for you :-)

Dear Bhaiya, It's been years since you passed but our love for you and thoughts of you never slowed down. Our family still waits for you to pop up and come back to our lives. We love you, I hope you and Bhabbi are united and happily ever after eternally. Love your Cousin, Tina

I knew Miah since 1989 when we worked at 125 Broad Street at Johnson & Higgins on the 40th Floor. Miah was a kind man from the moment we met. He would stop by my desk and cheer me up when I was down. I appreciated all he did to make me feel welcome. Miah would always ask me if I had a sister or any girlfriends for him. I was overjoyed to hear God had united him with his soulmate, which also perished with him. I Thank God for the time I got to know you Miah, God Bless your Soul.

Miah - Eight years later and it seems like just yesterday we were joking around as we got the room ready for one of my training programs. What a great spirit and fun person....I always looked forward to seeing you... ...and I still do see you...in my memories and in my heart. I'm just so sorry you haven't been here to enjoy life on earth....but I truly hope you have a created a new life in heaven. Miss you always.

Hey Miah! I temped at Marsh and McClennan nine years ago. I cannot believe it has already been that long. I was only there for two months, but on that fateful morning, my thoughts immediately turned to you and your colleagues. I will never forget you, stopping by the desk and joking with me, your friendly demeanor, and the way you made me feel comfortable at Marsh. I think of you all the time. God bless you and your family, and may you be in peace.

It doesn't matter that 9/11 happened eight years ago. For me, it will always be yesterday. And I will never forget the wonderful people I worked with at Marsh, including 'Miah' (he always had us call him by his last name). We first met when he worked at 125 Broad Street for a company that Marsh purchased. When I told him that I was a movie buff, he was excited to show me the executive floor where Hollywood director Brian De Palma filmed a scene with Sean Penn in the 1993 film 'Carlito's Way.' I will always remember and carry with me not only the memories of the times we worked together, but also Miah's joyful and positive attitude. God bless you and your family.

Yet another year passed and the day is here again reminding us that you are not with us physically. In fact, you are always in our hearts and prayers. All of your friends miss you and Shakila Bhabi. May you and the rest from that day be in peace.

Mr. Miah! How goes it? It's been a while. I always think of you though. I always see your family down at the site on 9/11. They are so sad without you and your wife. We all are. I just want to let you know you are not forgotten and missed a great deal. You made J&H; executive support a joy. M P.S. I hope the hunting is good in heaven. :)

I had the pleasure of working with Nurul Miah at J&H.; On the 5th anniversary of his passing when I remember him I can only smile. He was such an upbeat person and a real character. Nurul and I worked together behind the scenes supporting several executive events at J&H.; I will always remember one time that we were working together when Nurul needed my help with something. He knew I would help him, but for some reason he seemed to feel like he needed to offer me something extra. He then took off his watch and gave it to me. I refused to take it and gave it back to him. He told me to look at the watch. It was a J&H; 150th anniversary watch, which everyone in the company had received a few months earlier (so I REALLY couldn't understand why he was giving me his). He then opened a closet that was just packed full of all the leftover J&H; watches. We both laughed so hard. Rest in peace my friend Nurul!!! Your friend, Bob Z.

On September 10, 2001 I arrived to work with a frown on my face, frustrated by the hustle and bustle of the morning. Miah was walking doen the hall and asked me 'where is my sunshine today' that is how he referred to my smile. I said 'tough morning' and promised him a smile later on in the day. We talked a little bit about his weekend and went about our day. I don't remember if I did give him a smile that day, but those words stay with me to this day. Miah was always able to make me smile, I just wish I had one that morning. I know your wonderful spirit is in a good place, I only hope that there is at least one turkey :-) I miss you Miah, thank you for six wonderful months.

I met Nural Miah and shakila yasmin, AKA(Nurul bhai and shakila bhabi)among our friends circle through a mutual friend. I only knew him for about 2 years but in that short period of time, they had captured our hearts. Like a big brother he was always there...not bossy...yet firm when it came to serious matters. Yet, he always had jokes to share....and they were funny. I miss them so much. Whenever we talk about them, it becomes very difficult for us to accept it eventhough almost three years now. May Almighty bless your souls and let you meet again in next life.

When I saw Miah's name on the roll of the killed at WTC I couldn't believe it. I used to work with him at Johnson and Higgins and I always looked forward to seeing him because of his excellent professional ethics and his ethics. I found it hard to believe that a man like him would have hunting as a hobby. I will always remember him as a highly professional person, an enterpreneur and overall a fantastic guy. I miss him.

It's almost that time again, that time where you and I start making our plans for that week that we both eagerly await. That one week out of 48 other weeks in the year, That is strictly about our love for hunting and spending time with eachother. The week that is only about enjoying eachothers presents in a place where all is quiet and the only noise is that of the big buck walking through the woods and the sounds of our radio talks. The only problem is this time when I pick up the radio, who we be the one to respond back to my cries, IM alone and I haven't seen a single sign of a deer's trail. If I go back to the car will you be there to take me back to the woods? IM afraid to go hunting alone. Who's going to respond back to me when I cry out on the radio. From what you've taught me, I know that if you stay in your spot and don't move, the big buck will come to you. If I don't move and stay in the same spot for the day will you come and pick me up at the time the sun goes down? IM afraid to go hunting, who will pick me up at the end of the day. IM afraid once I go back to the woods, like you I will never come back.

I, like so many people who knew Nurul @ work called him Miah. Actually, when he and I would see each other I would always say 'Mr. Miah!' And he would say 'Mr. Mike!' and we would exchange a hardy handshake. I got to know Miah at J&H; when I worked for the help desk. He and I become closer friends once I was assigned to executive support for the 40th floor. In the following years, Miah and I would often chat, probably longer than we should have, about work, techinical equipment, his business ventures and his love of hunting. He was always a fun, ougoing person with a zest for life. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and wit. I think about him often and I truly miss him. I hope that he rests in peace. Michael

I worked with Miah at Johnson & Higgins on the 40th floor and knew him as a gracious person with a ready smile and a willingness to help others. He was truly a lovely man and is missed by all his many friends and co-workers. Sincerest sympathy to his family. Barbara C. Johnsen

He was my brother-in-law eventhough he felt like he was my true brother. When he walked into a room, he made everyone smile with his jokes and laughter. Shakila (his wife, my cousin) and he were only married for a short period of time, but they truly loved each other, and they are blessed to be together in their after life. We miss him dearly and I pray that Allah is with him.

I knew both Shakila and Nurul for almost a year and attended there one year anniversary party. They were like the 'Big Brother and sister' to our circle of friends. They would be excellent hosts. Nurul was very outgoing, always making everyone laugh. I never knew where they worked but was aware of their jobs...until one of their closest friends called me that morning. I realized I saw them just weekend ago. To this day I haven't visited the site; it would be just so heartbreaking. You realize life is something you take for granted at times... and don't realise it's worth.

My husband, Steve Morello, worked with Miah at Marsh. We attended Nurul and Shakila's wedding. Steve loved Miah like a brother and respected and trusted him. Miah made my husband smile. Steve would come at night and tell me about his day and it would surely include Miah. We were honored to attend the wedding of Nurul and Shakila and were hoping to have a long friendship with them. I pray my husband was with Miah, the man he respected so much, when this horror happened. Maybe they even shared a story. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Families of Nurul and Shakila. Respectfully, Eileen Morello (wife of Steve)
