Danny was a wonderful son. Having Danny for a son and friend has been the greatest gift life has given me. A son is a maker of memories, a special source of pride. A son is love.
Danny always had a contagious smile, laughing eyes, and his soft-spokenness put everyone at ease. Danny had a very special way of touching the soul of everyone he met.
Danny had many interests and mastered them all: art, guitar, poetry, photography, writing, landscaping, and even fixing automobiles. He was also an avid reader and had a geat love for the outdoors. Danny’s grasping of knowledge and eagerness to learn always made him a winner.
We will all miss the smile that could melt your heart.
Thank you for being the best son ever.
He came from the small town of South Montrose, Pa., but he was enchanted by the inexhaustible mysteries and wonders of New York. Daniel Crisman soaked in everything about the city.
Mr. Crisman, 25, felt he was on a roll. He had labored as a carpenter in New Jersey, but yearned for something more certain and less seasonal. He found a job as a temp at Marsh & McLennan. On Sept. 1, after a year of tentative status, he was made a permanent employee as a training coordinator.
When he learned the good news, he was ecstatic, flashing one of his trademark smiles. "He really felt like he had made it," said his girlfriend, Danielle Zazula. "He felt he had achieved a level of success in his life."
Art was another side of him. He met Ms. Zazula at a poetry workshop where both of them read some of their work. They shared so many interests, including admiration for Charles Bukowski. For two years, they lived together in Chelsea.
More recently, Mr. Crisman had set aside poetry and embraced photography, taking pictures of flowers and leaves. He also created collages, mixing his photographs with images he cut out of magazines and wrappers and bottle caps he found on the streets of the city that so inspired him.
To Dan's family and to all his friends.
Look for him, in the riseing of the sun, with it's promise of a new day, he will be there.
Look for him, in the rustling of the wind,
In the warmth of the sunshine, he will be there.
Look for him in the stillness of the night.
In the quite moments of your hart,
In the hours of lonelyness and Dispair, he will be there.
When you move on and grow.
Learn to be happy, smile again.
Once moore enjoying life's precious Moments, of love and family.
Look for him and he will be there.
God bless you all. From a Canadian friend.
Prevost, Quebec. Canada.

Here we are almost 6 years later and I can still remember what I was doing when I found out that you were in the WTC that day. I recognized the your name on the missing poster but not the face because the long hair was gone. I immediately went home and looked through my year book and sure enough it was you. I can still remember sitting in Ms. Perez's history class my junior year with you. I can remember seeing you around school and you were smiling. You will always be missed and definately never forgotten. Rest in Peace!!
I am sorry that the first time I had thought of you in the past couple of years was when my Dad was too upset to tell me that he saw your picture in the window of a diner with the posting that you were missing. I too was working in the World Trade Center that day and felt this tremendous amount of guilt that I made it out and there was a possibility that you did not.
At that point, I also had the realization that so many years had passed without keeping in touch with such a good high school friend and it was now too late.
Dan, you have been on my mind since 2001. Now more then ever, there have been little things that are a constent reminders of the fun we used to have and the great memories. Whether it's a Dee Lite song over ten years old that keeps being played on the radio, finding the Pearl Jam tape your best friend Mikey made, a piece of art created while driving Mrs. Salvini crazy in class or even the graduation picture of you and I. Too many things have turned up lately, Dan I know you are with us. Please just know that I'm sorry I never got to say goodbye. I will miss you always.
I would like to thank you. Because of the type of son you were, your mother has become one of my closest friends.
In our small wonderful town of Montrose, I knew who your mother was... but never REALLY knew her. After that horrific day, I made it a point to talk with her and extend my condolences. As we began to speak on occassion, a friendship began to grow. Your mom has a determination like I've rarely seen. We began to discuss many of the issues that she was facing and I could tell that these were wearing on her tremendously... but she pushed forward.
The Daniel Crisman Memorial Park began to take shape and I soon began to believe that if there was one person out there who could actually make it happen... it was Debbie.
Although she has done 99% of the work, I have the privilege of helping her perpetuate the park and make sure that it will always remain in our community the way that you will always remain in her heart.
As a result of that tragic day, Sept. 11th, many Americans began to reach out to their neighbors again; while taking a break from our busy lifestyles, we were able to rediscover treasures that were right in front of us the whole time.
Your mom is one of them.
My wife gave birth to our wonderful son on Sept. 12, 2002. The date was extremely symbolic to me. In fact, we missed the ceremonies at the Memorial Park that night because we were at the hospital. Since his birthday, Debbie has been so helpful to us. I'm very proud to say that she was the first person we ever allowed to babysit our son... and has done so many times since.
I think the world of your mom. As I reflect on the last 3 years... it's a bittersweet feeling. My biggest regret... having never met you.
However, knowing you shared many traits of your mother... and knowing all of the work she has done, I can say this:
You will be missed... but ALWAYS remembered.
It's that time again. I think of you so often and hope that you have found your own special place which you so deserve. Please know that you are missed and will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, dear sweet Danny.
Death is not the end but merely the beginning. Rest in peace and keep that smile.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, I LOVE YOU, THANK YOU FOR BEING
THE BEST SON EVER.
WITH ALL MY LOVE, MOM
" A PRAYER FROM THE HEART TO HEAVEN ABOVE - MAY
ANGELS SHOWER YOU WITH BLESSINGS OF LOVE."
MY WONDERFUL SON. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU.
THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST SON.
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.
WITH ALL MY LOVE UNTIL I SEE YOU IN HEAVEN.
LOT'S OF LOVE MOM
To Daniel's mom, Debbie. My heart goes out to you in pain. To you and to all who lost loved ones on that painful September day. I too know the loss of a child. Though my son was an infant when he died, I miss him and the man that I will never see him grow to be.
When we first loose a loved one it is like we have been cut very deeply. Like our wound we bleed many tears, but I can assure you that time does heal, just as the pain of a cut goes away. But we are always left a reminder- a scar, and that will never leave us. Neither will the love we shared. That lives on forever.
Though I never knew your son, he has touched my life in some small yet deep way. And you are right; he has a great smile!
God Bless you and keep you,
East Bernard, Texas

PLEASE REST IN PEACE,AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED AND MISSED MORE THAN WORDS CAN EXPRESS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST SON EVER.
WITH ALL MY LOVE SON,
He dated my very good friend Amy for seven years. Her wonderful and loving family made him one of their own. Amy and Dan shared a love that was so true and pure. There are a lot of people out there who don't get to experience this gift.
Dan was always very kind and warm to me. He took the time to talk and see how I was doing. He touch a part of my soul. That was something very special about Dan. He touched everyone he met in a special way without realizing it. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to have met Dan and to have him be a part of my life.
I now know that there are angels walking around on this earth. How do I know this? Daniel Crisman is one of them.
Peace and love,
