Susan and I met in Stella Maris, she became my best friend when I was a Sophmore. Someone that I always could to go for everything. I miss her everyday. I still look at her picture she gave me and read what she wrote me. I miss her all the time.

In memory of Susan on this 10th year...always in my thoughts and your family is always in my prayers. I remember so many times chatting with you online at the yahoo single parenting chat room. I remember how much you adored your daughter and your family. I remember your love of Mike Piazza (I'm not a baseball fan, but that always stuck with me). Unfortunately, I remember the day when I found out you were there in the North building of the WTC on that horrible day 10 years ago. Even though we never met, I will still think of you each year and always make sure I look at your picture and tributes to keep you in my memory. Much love to your family. Sherrie from Milwaukee, WI

Suzie Santo was our best babysitter.She was a smart, uncomplicated 12 year old that showed up on time and went home afterwards leaving us with a happy child. She liked to talk and she liked to listen.Suzie had large features, as they say.Her eyes. Her head.A big frame: all built to grow into.She asked questions of us; sometimes saving the question for days until she came over to babysit.For an adolescent daughter in this, the poorer side of Howard Beach, directly under the final approach to JFK's runway 13, where aspiration extended to being accepted in the Teamster local or at least landing a city job, the fact that she would ask questions alone made her stand out.

Its been 9 yrs since the last time my phone rang with you calling to chat on my way to work in the mornings. I so miss being able to talk to you. so much has gone on in life that I couldve used your help with. You always put everyone else above yourself, and for that we all loved you to death. I know youre looking down on me and all of your family and friends and smiling and guiding us in your own special way.

Sue it has been almost 8 years to the day, and this past Monday it has been 8 years to the day that I laid eyes on you. I really hope Crissy is doing well. I wish I knew how your Dad is doing. You spoke so much of your family they by proxy became a part of my day to day life. I miss you so much, I miss our friendship. I miss everything about you. Your life was cut so short, but when you left this earth, I hope at the very least you realized what a huge impact you made on my life, and the life of many others. I love and miss you. Allison

You are missed by a lot of people, Susan. My sister misses you so much. I never got the chance to communicate with you, but I will in the World-to-Come. G-d will give us the chance. G-d created a very special young lady in you. You are now in His loving arms. G-dspeed, honey. We all miss you, MBossy.

Susan and I went to Stella Maris H.S. together. We weren't close friends but knew eachother and commuted together on the A train. When I heard of her death I was really saddened. I seem to recall that she also grew up without a mother and how sad it would be that now her daughter would also grow up without her. I watch the memorial on TV each year and am still shocked to hear her name. Rest in peace Susan.

I met Sue when she and my daughter Samantha started High School at Stella Maris. From the moment I met her, she captured a piece of my heart - so beautiful and loving! And then came Chrissy - an extension of wonderful Sue! Sue's short life will flourish through her daughter. My prayers always include Susan and her wonderful family. We miss you!

It's been almost seven years since you were taken from us, Susan. I still think of you every single day. Your laughter and your spirit will remain with me and many others for eternity. I definitely miss those talks about hockey, the Mets and especially Metallica. :-) I still talk to you to this day and I truly believe that you can hear me. You were always there as one of the most genuine and sincere people I've ever known. Your daughter and the rest of your family will remain in my prayers and I know that everyone who has ever known you will continue to celebrate your life and be forever grateful for the blessing of having you in ours. I miss you and love you, Susie. Thank you for everything.

Yesterday was 4 years since it happened. I happened to be in NYC on business and had some time before I left to catch Sue's name on t.v. It physically hurt to hear her name and see her picture on t.v. It still hurts like it did that day. Sue was a friend of mine for a short time, like 5 years or so. Not a day goes by that I dont think of her or miss talking to her. Yes I am STILL angry that I dont have my friend to talk to anymore. Yes I am STILL angry that the major culprit has not been caught. I dont think I will ever stop being angry. Lives were lost and we are none the better 4 years later. I know my friend Sue wouldn't have wanted us to be so complacent. Forever your friend MB, Ro

It's September 11, 2004. It's hard to believe we're now at the 3 year anniversary. I left my tribute to Susan last year but I wanted to come back to this site just to remember her. You'll never really be gone Susan because so many will always remember you. Peace to you & to your family. Jen

I knew Susan in high school. I lost touch with her after graduation and it broke my heart when I heard she was lost on 9/11. Even now, more than 2 years later she is constantly on my mind. She was a very determined, strong, loyal and caring person. I was going through a hard time in the months before we graduated and she had the courage and heart to confront me and try to help. I was a stubborn 17 year old at the time so I brushed off her efforts, but I definitely never forgot them. She was a rare gem and the world is a little darker without her in it. My deepest sympathies go to her family and friends. I hope that one day Chrissy reads these thoughts and finds comfort in them. Your mother was one of a kind- full of love, joy and intelligence. I know you will grow up to make her proud. You will always be in my thoughts, Jen

Susan and I would chat on the internet, it was all about Mike Piazza or Dale Earnhardt. If it wasn't those two it was about her daughter Chrissy. Susan I am going to miss you like crazy. The Lord has you in his care now, and Chrissy is being looked after as well by the Lord. Miss you kiddo. Love in Christ, Carla Snow

I meet Susan in Berkeley College. From the beginning I liked her. She was so caring and a great friend. She was always there when I need here. I remember the time we were in typing class and I was going to fail and she helped me. I remember her talking to me about Chrisy and how much she loved her. She was her everything. The last time I spoke to Susan was maybe a year before her death. When I saw her picture on T.V. the day of the attacks my heart dropped. I was so upset. I asked god why Susan. Why her when she has so much going on her her life. I prayed that she was found but I found out from her father that she was not. At her memorial I sat there and listened to her cousin talk about what a great person Susan was and I was so mad at myself for not speaking to Susan that whole year before she died. I was upset because we lost contact. Till this day I wish I could speak to her one last time. God Bless you Susan. I know you are watching over Chrisy and your dad. I miss you.

Sue, I miss you like I have missed no other. Because of you I know what it was like to have a true friend. I only met you once, it was one of the precious moments in my entire life. I pray for your daughter on a daily basis, as well as all your family. I can't believe you are gone, and I still have daily conversations with you in my mind. I miss having someone care about me, and letting me know on a daily basis how much they care. You are one of a kind, and you live in my heart, forever.

Susan and me worked together at DDK, her job before MMC. We shared the same office for almost a year. She often spoke about her love for baseball (Mets/Piazza), hockey and BareNakedLadies. Chirpy, strong and full of life, she was my only source for office news. She learned everything about everyone because she cared. She had seen more of life than most other people. A great mother to Chrissy, she once mentioned wanting Chrissy to grow up fast so that they could go to a bar together. I remember congratulating her when she got the job at MMC. She was so happy about the medical benefits Chrissy would now get. She was very good at her job and a quick study at anything new. I always respected her and spoke highly of her work with our management. She choose not to say goodbye to me on her last day at DDK. I will always regret this because I always cared for her. She did not give me her contact information. (I left DDK soon after she left.) I remember checking the MMC web site for any information about Susan soon after 9/11 last year. Saw nothing about her then. Today I see her name in the Wall Street Journal. I too will always remember and honor. Deepak 09/11/02

Sue was a dear friend of mine. Ive had a hard time expressing myself in words how this has affected me. I feel deep sorrow at her young life lost, sorrow for her daughter losing her mother and deep sorrow losing one of my closest friends. I miss Sue spending weekends at my home... I miss Sues wonderful humor... I miss hearing the cheesecake stories from work... I miss our concert outings... I miss my friend. Sue will remain in my thoughts and prayers for the rest of my life as will her father and her daughter. God Bless you Sue... I miss you lady.

Susan and I went to a number of Barenaked Ladies concerts together. We also went to a Mets game and took Chrissy along with us. It was my first baseball game, and there were Sue and Chrissy cheering for Piazza. Sue and I got very close in a very short time. We would go have lunch everyday, get frozen yogurt and take a quick walk through the Gap. On the morning of September 11, I was driving to work. When i heard what had happened, I immediately called Susan's ext., and no answer. I could hardly make it to work just thinking about everything that was happening. I spoken to Sue's father, Joe, about 5 times that day and we were trying to talk in code so Chrissy wouldn't understand. Susan I love you so much and miss you dearly. I know God is watching over you and is making sure that Chrissy and your Dad are safe.

While being in NY for an internship I met Susan chatting on the internet as 'mbossy'. I even had the chance to see & meet this wonderful girl in real life during some chatter parties in ´98. After my return to Germany we mailed every now and then were she kept me up-to-date about Chrissy and herself. I will never forget her.

As a single parent, Suzie worked hard to do the right thing in raising her daughter Chrissy. Chrissy was her life. Her death has been such a shock to our family and it continues to plague us every day. Suzie was an incredible person. She gave to everyone around her and was a wonderful cousin and friend. We love you Suzie and you will never know how much you are missed.

Sue was a good friend of mine. I remember when she told me she got the job at MMC, she was so happy. Sue was a single mother, this job meant that she could provide for her daughter Chrissy better. She liked her job and her collegues. She was always there for me when I needed her. My prayers go out to her dad, daughter and Brothers. She was one in a million. Thank you for the opportunity to type my feelings out.
