  Lorraine Antigua

Date of Birth: September 27, 1968
Position: Bond Trader

I met Lorraine when she was just a kid working in the coop program at First Boston, She worked in the same department as my husband Billy. The two of them became friends almost instantly. I worked for a different company in the same building at 5 WTC, and would have lunch with them whenever possible. Lorraine was one of the sweetest people I ever met. I always enjoyed going out to lunch with her whether it be that cheap little Chinese place or to butlers for sandwiches or even just to the first Boston cafeteria. Our friendship continued through the years that she worked for First Boston. We have so many fond memories of her, I can remember dancing with her, Joe Turk and Joanne at my wedding, and going to her house to see Caitlin when she was born. Unfortunately, we let so much time pass thinking we can call tomorrow, saying on so many occasions while we talked of our memories of Lorraine and other’s we missed from First Boston that we would get in touch soon. Now sitting here writing a tribute to Lorraine we have to sad realization that there are no more tomorrow’s to call and say lets get together. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to her family. Her Mom and Dad, Arron and Caitlin and her Fiance. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all in this difficult and painful time. Lorraine you will always hold a special place in our hearts.

  • My daughter was a single parent raising two children. She was a great Mom and a wonderful friend. She will stop everything to help someone in need!
    We miss her a lot and she will always be in our minds and hearts!

  • We did not know Lorraine or any of the 9-11 victims but our prayers extend to all of them and their families. The NBC Today show warmed us this morning by featuring Lorraine’s daughter, Caitlin. The network made her wish come true by arranging a meeting at a Los Angeles video soundstage to meet her music idol, Jennifer Lopez. What a bright and special day for Caitlin. J. Lo (a name by which she is so well known) was generous with her time and attention. We hope that Lorraine is smiling down on Caitlin and her brother as their lives move forward after the tragic events in September. May this 2001 Holiday season be the beginning of the healing for Lorraine’s family and friends.

  • I first spoke to Lorraine when she was working at Nomura then I was lucky enough to work on the same desk as her when she joined Cantor. She would always come into work with a smile on her face and it would carry over to the rest of us on the desk. We used to talk about going sky diving upstate sometime but we never got around to it. Lorraine and the rest of our friends on the desk were some of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet . You will all be missed more then you can ever know.

  • My mom was a really kind person. At times, she would be strict, but she was still nice. She was also very independant. If she needed to do something, she would do it herself. She would never ask for help and she was very strong. I know that she is in Heaven making sure that everyone she loved is taken care of. Now that she is an angel, she can be in all places at once which is something she couldn’t do as a human. She was very hard-working. She is not here in person, but she will always be in my thoughts, prayers, and most of all, my heart. I just hope that when I die, I will become an angel and join my mom in Heaven. Merry Christmas.

    Aaron Antigua, Son
  • My fondest memory of Lorraine was when we were younger. We would stay over our grandmother’s house and, between my siblings, myself, Lorraine, her brothers and our other 3 cousins, we would create the Olympics or The Superstars while my grandmother would go to the supermarket. We used to have such good times. And even though we kind of lost touch for a while, Lorraine was always there for the special moments in our lives. Her son Aaron was the ring bearer for my wedding. She was always a beautiful person inside and out.I truly will miss her. She had so much love for her children and so much love for life. Lorraine, I will always love you and I’ll always carry you in my heart. To Aaron and Caitlin, your Mom will always be with you no matter where you go and no matter what you do. God Bless.

    Kassi LaBoy, Cousin
  • The last time I saw Lorraine was shortly after my mother’s death (her stepdad is my brother Charlie) in 1989. She was living in our mother’s house in Woodhaven, Queens & I remember her having tremendous energy, always on the go TO somewhere, or FROM somewhere! I’m sorry I never knew her later on as a young mother of 2, bravely supporting her chhildren alone & doing a fine job of it. There’s a huge black hole in the universe now when she was snatched away from all who knew & loved her, & while life goes on as it will, it’s going to be a LONG, LONG time before the hurt will subside. I grieve for my brother & sister-in-law & the children who’re left behind. I pray that they may all come to know the God who loves them & who alone can bring the healing to their hearts & spirit.

    Della Helfen (Schroeder), Aunt (step)
  • Lorraine is still my best friend no matter where she is. She has never left my side, even now. Lorraine was the most generous & thoughtful person I know. She was intelligent and beautiful. A combination only she could handle. Her dedication to her family was amazing. She adored her children, Aaron and Caitlin and they adored her. Lorraine was a hard worker and found a way to balance her life and did everything on her own. She was a provider and safekeeper for her children. My husband Matt says that we were just getting started in our lives and he was looking forward to Lorraine, Brian and the two of us beginning our lives together and creating families and how our kids would grow up together. Lorraine, you will always be with me. I love you and miss you terribly. Remembering your vibrant smile and laughter is what gets me through. When I look for you, I reach down into my heart and that’s where you are. I promise that I will be there for your children, Brian and your family. Until we meet again, have the margaritas–no salt–on the rocks waiting for me. x0x0x0

  • Unfortunately, I just met Lorraine prior to the September 11th tragedy. Lorraine, her fiance Brian, and two children Aaron and Caitlin live a few houses away from my parents. On Sunday, September 9, Lorraine and Brian were over for a bar-b-que. She came carrying a bottle of wine and a smile that lit up the party. She wore a striped sweater and fisherman’s hat. Throughout the course of the night she would utter “Brian, Brian” if Brian would say the wrong word in front of my youngest brother. I can still hear her voice like it was yesterday. I knew at that party that Brian and Lorraine were the kind of people I would like to spend time with. Sadly our time with Lorraine was taken in too short a time. Since the tragedy my family has become extremely close with Lorraine’s family. Listening to her parents, Charlie and Ramona, and Brian tell stories of Lorraine has allowed me to experience what a wonderful, strong-willed, independent woman she was, putting her children above everything. She is truly an inspiration to all.

    Renee Memoli, Friend
  • Lorraine, I miss you so much. I am sorry that I did not get the chance to say happy birthday to you. I hope this new life let’s you know how much you mean to me. I will always remember the good times we had. I also remember the fun times we had as kids growing up. I can never get out of my mind the day we were doing the dishes (you know…washing, drying, and putting them away after dinner) and Dad was saying that you were an accident waiting to happen. You argue back that you had things under control. No sooner than those words came out of your mouth, when all of a sudden, one of the dishes you were drying fell out of your hands and onto the floor. Dad says see, I told you so.. and we all started laughing. You started crying and Mom tried to keep from laughing and comfort you. Now that we are older, we look back and all laugh, but boy, were you upset then. All the girls in the neighborhood adored you. They all figured that by being your friend, they could use you to get to me. I also recall the first night club you went to (you were either 15 or 16) and I took you out to club Valentine. We had a great time; we even met Frankl Harris. I asked you Lorraine, “you do know who that is” and you say, “sure he’s a basketball player”. I say, “no way, he’s a star running back with the Pittsburg Steelers”. Years later, I came to visit you and you invited me to the Madison Square Garden to watch the Knicks play basketball. That was my first game ever.
    Yes, we’ve had a lot of good times. Though you lived up north and I lived in Miami, we always talked on the phone. I will visit you often. I know that one of your favorite TV shows was Xena (the Warrior Princess). I guess you could relate to her because you also live with confidence, in your line of work, in the securities industry. You were Lorraine, “The Stock Loans Warrior Princess”.
    Lorraine, a brother could never ask for more from a sister. You were always there for me and I wish I could have been there for you. I just doesn’t seem fair that you were in such a high point in your life, this tragic event had to occur. I know that it is a sad time for all of us, but deep down inside I also know that you are up there looking down on us and telling us that everything will be alright. I know this to be true because when you were about 9 years old, we all went to church with Uncle Tommy & Aunt Karen. You stepped up to the front of the congregation and spoke using words in a language I never heard before. After it was over, we all asked you Lorraine, what happened and you said you didn’t know. Well now I know you were touched by the holy spirit. This tells me that you are a child of God and as a child of God, you belong with him.
    In the bible, Romans 8:14 says “for all who are led by the spirit of God are children of God.” Lorraine, my little sister, I know you also like the Highlanders movies, which later on became a TV series. Well, I will have to borrow a quote from Highlanders, as far as sisters are concerned for me, “There can be only one” and you are the one! I miss you, I love you always. You will forever be in my heart.
    Your big brother,
    Luis Pineiro

  • I was fortunate to work with Lorraine at Cantor. You never knew when Lorraine was down or having a bad day because she was always smiling and brightening up the desk. It was obvious that she was a hard worker and so proud of her two children and the new life she was building with Brian. She was well respected by everyone in the securities lending industry. Coming to work is certainly not the same without seeing her at her desk preparing for the day. Her family should take comfort in knowing she loved them very much and worked to make a better life for them.

  • My sister meant the world to me, not a second goes by without the thought of her. I work to try to distract my mind; but I can’t ease my pain. I live for my family and for her children if not life wouldn’t feel worth while. Lorraine was an original(in less than 100 words)My sister achieve all obstacles, accomplish all her goals. Not bad for a Puerto Rican from Bklyn/brownsville straight out the projects called Cypress Hills to start working at the WTC at 15 for First Boston & at 33 end with Cantor Fitzgerald.

    Richard A Pineiro, Brother
  • Wow Lorraine,
    I am at the lowest valley in my lifetime. I am extremely saddened and angry at the entire 9-11 tragedy. My heart goes out to everyone effected by it. Our friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, church and charities are helping us over come this. Thank you all!
    Lorraine you know what you mean to me.
    Never in a million years could I have imagined meeting a woman like you!
    You are AWESOME in every regard. First and foremost you were a great Mom. Aaron and Caitlin are respectful, caring, and responsible young adults. At 32 you achieved what every single mom dreams of. Secondly, you are a great person. You always gave it your all, whether it was to the family, friends, co-workers or to me. My words couldn’t express how much your presence is and will be missed. Initially, I had typed our favorite stories but due to a word limit on the tribute I had to shorten it. I would like to thank our families, Stella, Matt, Rich, Michelle, Louie, The Memoli Crew, Lisa, Marty, Bear, Lisa, Norma, Ami, Bob, Kincsem, Jack, Martha, Tyler, Jessie, Michael, Adele, our neighbors, the guy that sang us “I’ve Got the World on a String” at Latavola for being part of our lives. You will continue to be a very special part of mine.
    Our Uncle Tommy made me realize one thing, “without time we can appreciate nothing” I appreciate the two and a half years we had, it will last me a lifetime!
    I Love & miss you!
    Brian

  • My Dear Lorraine,

    I miss you so much, you do not know how hard it is for me to go on without you! You were everything to me, the best daughter, my best friend and most of all – the best “MOM” for Aaron & Caitlin. I remember the day you were born, I got to the hospital at 5:00 PM and thirty-five minutes later you came into this world. I cried for hours because I was so proud that God had blessed me with such a beautiful daughter. God blessed me that day and every day thereafter because you were the “perfect” daughter. You never gave me any headaches, you were my daughter, my friend and my confidant. We laughed together, cried together and prayed together.

    I remember how every summer when you came down to Florida and turned my house upside down with the latest fashions and current styles of “New York” into a Floridian home. You were the classiest, most sophisticated young woman in town, regardless of which town you happened to be in that month. Your father and I have always been so proud of you, no matter what new venture you encountered. You were my trophies, my medals and my heart. I bragged about you every chance I could, to whomever would listen. You lit up any room that you entered and every life that you touched.

    I miss our talks, the late night phone calls and your hugs & kisses. At times it felt as though you were the mother, always giving advice, a hug when needed and a shoulder to cry on. I remember how excited you were when we were planning your “Las Vegas” wedding. You were always unique. “A drive thru wedding on a motorcycle.” This is something that only you and Brian could pull off with such style & class.

    On September 11, 2001, my life as we all knew ended. My precious daughter had been taken away from me. I am sometimes so angry, as it is so unfair that such a precious person’s life was taken. I would have given anything to have had it been me instead of you, you had your whole life ahead of you. You were supposed to grow old, see your children grow up, get married, and become a proud grandmother (like you and your brothers made me). It hurts so much…even though I know you are looking down on us and yes you are in a better place, but I am selfish and I want you back. I will never say goodbye, we never did in this lifetime, as goodbyes are forever and one day, I will see you again. And yes one day we will all be together again and that day I pray for every day. Now I give you back to our heavenly father to keep you safe until I am there. I love you always, and as always you will be in my heart forever.
    Your Loving Mom,
    Ramona Schroeder

  • Dear Mama,
    I miss you a lot. I wish you were here with us. I remember the time this guy was checking you out and you were driving so you couldn’t give him the finger so you gave him the foot. I’ll always remember the funny stuff you did. I’ll always remember you and I think about you everyday, and there’s not one day I don’t think of you. I used to get mad at you when you yelled at me, but now I’ll give anything for you to yell at me – it would be music to my ears. It’s very hard but it gets easier along the way. Grandma promised me she wouldn’t cry cause you know how she is. But when she feels like crying I tell her you’re in a better place and you wouldn’t want her to cry. I love you mama and you’re the best mom ever and I promise for the rest of my life that if daddy gets another wife, I will never call her mama.
    I LOVE YOU MAMA!
    Love,
    CP

    Caitlin Antigua, Daughter
  • My aunt was very happy with her life. She had two beautiful children, wonderful friends, a loving husband to be, and a family everyone wishes they had. She was very independant. If she needed something then she would get it herself. She had a big attitude whenever someone would mess with her or her family and friends. Although she was a busy business woman she always had time for her family. She was the only girl out of 3 children. Between my mom’s sisters and her, she was my favorite aunt. She will always be remembered in our hearts. What a shame such a bad thing can happen to such a wonderful person.

    Kayla Pineiro, Niece
  • I saw her every winter and she would always make this feast of chicken. Any and every type of chicken you could think of. Also she would always go out of her way to make people happy even if it put her in discomfort. I love my aunt and will miss her dearly. If I could say one thing to her before this event, it would be “you are the most wonderful aunt any one could have and that God made you as a blessing for us.” I live in Florida and my mom and sister and I traveled up here to be with Grandma and Grandpa to comfort them in their weakest moments and for my cousins to let them know that family is here and that we love them all. I will never forget my aunt for as long as I live. God bless her and rest her soul in peace.
    Her loving nephew,

  • Lorraine and I went to P.S. 171 in Brooklyn together. We were best friends in elementary school. We thought it was so cool for two best friends to have the same name, especially one that was so uncommon. She was fun loving and a great friend. Unfortunately, we lost touch after my family and I moved out of Brooklyn. I’ve missed Lorraine over the years and often wondered about her.
    I will miss her even more.
    My prayers go out to her children and her family.

    Sincerely,
    Lorraine Pacifico

  • Lorraine, you were taken away from us and we never had a chance to say goodbye. I still have your email from that morning and I will always keep it with me. You were a true friend and one who I could talk to about anything and I could always count on you. We shared almost the same birthday and I always looked forward to our birthday celebration. I remember the times we spent together you, me and Stella and they were “priceless”. I remember your laugh and smile, & how you could light up a room. We will miss you, we will cherish the memory of you and we will always keep you in our hearts. Till we meet again and may God hold you in the palm of his hand. C’ya, Grogs

  • I’d be amiss if I didn’t say that this tragedy has deeply affected me. Unfortunately, as an oncology nurse, loss and suffering is no stranger to me. However, never in a million years could I have imagined that Lorraine would be snatched away from us. I mean after all, she was vibrant and healthy. For this I have a heavy heart.
    One thing I remember about Lorraine growing up is her beautiful hair and brown eyes, not to mention her spunk! We would have our “get togethers” at Grandma Schroeder’s house & look for ways to have fun. One funny memory I have is the time us “cousins” were hanging out on the front porch playing with the roller window shades. We would pull on them really hard and watch them spin up out of control. Well, we did this until we broke them! Yeah, we did get yelled at, too, but it was still fun!
    I just want to say that I’ve done a lot of praying lately. I especially pray for Aaron, Caitlin, Ramona, Uncle Charlie, Brian and Lorraine’s best friend Stella. I also pray for everyone who was touched in some way by knowing Lorraine. May God give each of you comfort.

    Terri Zielinski, cousin (step)
  • Lorraine, We can only hope you know how much you meant to us. You were there for us as a couple and when we became husband & wife. You knew all our secrets because we trusted you implicitly. We are still very much in despair that you are not with us. We missed you terribly this New Year’s-for that was our Holiday. We eat dinner on the dishes you gave to us every night. All we can do for you now is be there for your children, Mom & Dad and our buddy Brian. Our wonderful memories of you keeps us going. We LOVE and MISS you very much. Frogman & the Sausage Queen

  • Everyone whose life you have touched have been so saddened by your passing on. Those whom you have left behind, grieve for you and will always remember the special person you are. Your life is not over, just changed to a glorious one that one day will be for us to join you in all of your glory. We await the day that we will again see you, not as you were, but as the new, glorious person, the lord meant for you to be. Until that time, we will continue to think of you and miss you as all who have had the pleasure of knowing you.

    Don and Rita, Uncle and Aunt
  • Lorraine was my cousin and it has been difficult for me to accept what has happened and to find the words to express how much Lorraine meant to me. I remember when we were kids, whenever she got upset her nose would flare and one of us would yell out “Look out, Lorraine is angry.” But that same fire she had in her belly she used to strive in life and accomplish so much in the time she was here. She has two awesome kids, a man that really loved her and they would have had such a great life together. Then on 9/11 things changed, but her legacy will live on forever. Lorraine was a great person. She was a great mom, partner, friend, and family member. I am a year older than Lorraine but I have always looked up to her. Her determination, strength, stamina, caring, and love. She was an awesome person. The last time we spoke was after I give birth to my son Joshua. She sent me a bouncer for him and I called to thank her. In that conversation, we made plans to see each other but we never had that chance to see each other. But I know she is up above watching over us. And I know God is watching over her. I know that that should make me feel better but my heart still aches. But like Lorraine was strong, I will be strong and strive taking it one day at a time. So I’ll sign off by saying that Lorraine was the “Wind Beneath Our Wings.” I Love You Lorraine and You Will be Missed. Love your cousin, Carmen (Millagros)

  • To the family of Lorraine Antigua:

    I am just your regular 21 year-old living my life, but am I really living it like I should? Because of your friend, daughter, relative, etc. that I do not even know or have never heard of, my view on and of life is totally different than it was 5 minutes ago. Lorraine has since changed my life, kind of hard to believe huh? Well no, not really, when speaking of such a wonderful woman. Sitting here reading all of the wonderful tributes people have written about Lorraine has in a way made me cry and made me laugh, reading the funny stories from her brother about the dishes to her daughter talking about flicking some guy off with her foot just reminds me of the simple things in life.

    I can’t explain to you why I feel so connected with Lorraine but I do. I don’t know if it is her smile that I have been looking at for the last 20 minutes or all of the wonderful things people have to say about her, it brings tears of joy and sadness to my eyes. I guess what I am trying to say is to keep your heads up and especially you Aaron and Caitlin. You are what your mother is and please be greatful for that-for I am what my mother is. Hey Caitlin, you got it girl- the next J-Lo! And Aaron watch after your sis and flick any guys off that look at her with your foot! Take care and I know that I will always keep Lorraine in my prayers. And to the parents of Lorraine-YOU DID A GREAT JOB! Love-Niki

    Niki, Visitor of Website
  • Lorraine, its me again. I have been thinking so much about you. I wish you were here to tell me how to move forward. Your wisdom and advice is desparately needed right now. I can only hope you are watching from above and will somehow give not only me, but your loving family, a sign on what you would want from all of us. As I read these tributes, it’s a little comforting to know that strangers recognize how amazing you are. But there will never be enough said to do you any justice as to person you are. Wonderful, caring, trusting, generous, loyal and funny as hell. My life will not be the same without you, but I will be sure to tell my children who you were and how much you will love them even from heaven. I made this statement at your service and I meant it with all my heart (I wasn’t smart enough to come up with it on my own, I read it somewhere). “If my tears can build a staircase, and memories make a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again!. Aaron, Caitlin, Mom and Dad, Brian, Matt and I need you to show us the way. Be the shining light you always were and guide us out of this darkness we feel. I will see you someday and I will give you the biggest hug and then slap you in the head! I hope you knew deep in your heart how I feel about you. I’m sorry I didn’t say or show you more often-but it’s never too late. I know I can talk to you anytime. So keep your ears out for me- Love you Always!

    Stella Faicco, Best Friend
  • Dear Mrs.Antigua,
    I know I have never met you but Caitlin has told me about you. She said you were a very nice person, and she also said you were funny, and how kind you are. Caitlin will always remember you, and I will remember you, and that day.

    Lindsay Capatasto, Caitlin's friend
  • God bless you, tears streamed down my face reading what beautiful things your family and friends have written about you. You are in heaven with my niece, Monique Dejesus and I know that you don’t miss us like we miss you both because you are in a more precious and beautiful place where there is no suffering or pain and mostly, when each and everyone of us see you both again, you will have your arms openend ready to give us all the hugs we so desperately miss from both of you. God bless your children, your family seems very loving and strong, There is no doubt in my mind Lorraine, your kids will make you very proud in heaven! God bless you…

    Miriam Caceres, None
  • I am a friend of a friend of yours. I think about you and the other victims at least once a day. The events of September 11th have changed my life forever. I didn’t lose any family members that day but I think about yours and the families of so many and I hold my loved ones tighter. I saw your children at your Memorial and I can tell you raised beautiful, loving children who’s mother meant the world to them. It is not fair to Aaron and Caitlin to have lost their mother and for your parents to lose their daughter, it is not natural, parents should watch their children grow old with their families. I also think of Brian, who was cheated out of a lifetime with you.

    I know you are watching over your children, as well as your parents, Brian and all who loved and cared about you and you are guiding them, to help them move on, one day at time. You will never be forgotten, even by me.

    Rest in Peace.

    An Acquaintance, A Mom, A Friend
  • I keep a small masscard of your photo in my bag and every now and then I look at it and smile and think of how incredibly friendly and sweet you are. The events of 9/11 still bring tears to my eyes and it hurts to think of everyone that has lost a treasured soul. I know you are not lost and that you’re in a perfect place – but to those that knew you and loved you and that are still here – it will be our greatest loss. I believe we all learned a valuable lesson from you – it is we should all strive to be kinder to one another and to take the hard and difficult aspects of our lives and face the world in an optimistic way. You have shown those that have known you such warmth and compassion and truly goodheartedness that everyone has been blessed and fortunate to have known you; a gift from God – which now we need to learn and pass on. Just by reading the tributes and speaking to Stella do I see how deeply sad and hurt everyone is and I hope you can help your family and friends by giving them strength and courage. May God bless you and keep you dear to him.

    Sincerely,
    Dora Di Re McCallin

  • Lorraine, 6 months have passed since that horrible day in Sept. The feelings of sadness, anger and disbelief have only managed to get worse as the months passed. Not a day has gone by that we haven’t thought of you and prayed for your family. God bless you old friend .. Rest in peace, and keep smiling that beautiful smile of yours on your children and loved ones.

  • My Sister-In-Law, Lorraine, was the string that held the whole family together. Through thick and thin she was always there for everyone. She always knew what to say in hard times, always lending an ear to listen, even when she had troubles of her own. Not a day goes by that a tear isn’t shed for this beautiful, strong and loving woman and her family. My heart aches every day and I pray to God that he give her back to us, for her family’s sake, as these days without her have been unbearable, to say the least.

    We Love and Miss You Terribly Lorraine, you will always be in our hearts.

  • Mrs. Anigua,
    I didn’t know you when you were here with us, but by the stories Caitlin has told me over the last five months, I can tell you were a great person. In Caitlin’s point of view, you were also a great mom. I’m positive that Caitlin misses you terribly, and by reading the other tributes so does everyone else.
    On September 11th, I lost my uncle. I was really close with him, and I miss him very much, but I know that probably can’t even compare with the pain Caitlin and Aaron felt when you never came home. That was just about the worst day for me, but it was probably a lot worse for them to lose their mom.
    Even though I never met you, I’ll never forget the funny stories I heard about you. Caitlin is one of my best friends, and I’ll try to look out for her.
    Love, Deanna

  • Dear Mrs. Antigua,
    Even though I didn’t know you, you seemed very nice. When I was in the 3rd grade, I was in Caitlin’s class, and she told me a lot of things about you. From just hearing those things, it sounded like you were a great person.
    From, Amanda Svenson

  • DEAR LORRAINE,
    I FEEL I NEVER SAID THANK YOU MORE TIMES THAN I DID. YOU WERE WITH US FOR TEN YEARS. GOOD TIMES AND BAD WE KEPT TOGETHER. YOU BROUGHT AARON AND CAITLIN TO OUR WORLD AND THEY KEEP US SMILING.
    THE TRIBUTES THEY SAY TO YOU ARE SO TRUE. YOU BROUGHT A SHINE TO THE ANTIGUA FAMILY. WITH FOUR MEN AS SONS IT WAS GREAT KNOWING I HAD SOMEONE TO DO OUR NAILS WITH OR GO TO THE MALL AND GET LOST ONLY TO BE FOUND BY YOU. (AT THAT POINT I HAD TEARS IN MY EYES. YOU KNEW I WOULD GET LOST). LORRAINE, YOU LEAVING HAS LEFT A BIG HOLE IN THIS FAMILY. I WANT TO TELL YOU WE REMEMBER YOU IN OUR MIDST AND WE LAUGH AT THE SILLY THINGS WE DID, ESPECIALLY FRIDAY NIGHT WHEN IT WAS GIRLS NIGHT AND WE COULD TALK ABOUT NEW FASHION OR OUR NEXT ASSEMBLY AS A FAMILY TALK WOULD BE ABOUT.
    THANK YOU LORRAINE FOR BEING IN OUR LIVES AND MAY OUR LORD KEEP YOU SAFE TO WATCH OVER US.
    THANK YOU FOR BEING LORRAINE.

  • Lorraine used to answer the phone when I called my husband and she always had a funny greeting, I looked forward to what she would say. I had the pleasure of meeting Lorraine on a few occasions and she was always full of life. The most memorable was at Franks engagement party. She was so generous when our daughter was born and I’m glad we have the few momentos she sent to remeber her by. She is loved and missed by so many people. I’m glad I had the honor to know her.

  • Lorraine became part of our Securities Lending group for just over a year. When Lorraine joined us she fit right into our family. She was so full of vibrance and energy. She was always hard at work, but enjoyed every minute of it. She always talked so proudly of her two beautiful children and of her day she would marry Brian in Las Vegas. I am so glad to have had the chance to spend a Saturday in June at Lorraine’s house for a barbeque. It was a great day, all of us were together just having fun. I thank God every day to have had the special time together.

    Lorraine, Thank you for having us all together to spend such a beautiful Summer day with the whole gang, never knowing it would be our last. I am so grateful to your for that. I miss your smile, wit, laughter and jokes, but most of all I miss you. I have to say it was an honor to have worked with such a dedicated worker and the greatest Mom that you were to your children. I know you are watching over them and protecting them every day. I will keep Lorraine, Brian, her children, her Mom & Dad and all of her family and friends in my heart and prayers forever.

    Lorraine until we meet again….

    Love,
    Karen

  • Lorraine,
    You spent the last moments with my husband and I know will take care of him for me. You always have. You worked for him a short time and he always said that you did so much for him. You always made me laugh when I called for him. I know Louie was your boss, but remember he was your friend, too. You worked great together.
    It gives me comfort knowing Louie is with the best people he could have ever worked with.
    It was a pleasure spending time with you family over the summer and if it wasn’t for that, my children would not have memories of their father’s co-workers. I pray for your children every day and I know that you give them strength to go on.
    To your children, your mother was a strong and independent woman, pray to her every day for she is watching over you and loves you very much. Her smile warms my family by shining down on us.
    Always on my mind and in my thoughts,
    Lori Caporicci, friend and co-worker’s wife.

  • I saw Caitlin with J Lo and read your son’s tribute. To your children: as a single mom I know your mommy would be so proud of you and so touched by your words. Know that the whole world is hurting, and you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Lorraine was the apple of my eye, my little girl. Mom and me raised you to be a wonderful girl and at that, you succeeded. You became a wonderful mother, caring totally for Aaron & Caitlin, your children. You have reached levels, even I could not imagine and you did it by yourself. I am so proud of you and your accomplishments and achievements. I’ll always love you and you will never be alone. Someday, we will be together again. I miss you. I love you always and forever.

  • I regret the fact we didn’t see each other as much as I would have liked, but when family members and friends said you would light up a room, they were right. How can I say how I feel without shedding a tear. I take a lonely number with all the people who wish you were here. You were such a beautiful girl, a gem in everyone’s eyes. I know you are still smiling now from painted rainbow skies. I’m sorry I didn’t see you before you went away. I didn’t think twice, or even question if I’d see you another day. My cousin, my heart cries and my soul is full of pain. I have thoughts of what I’ll say and do when I see you once again. I’m going to want to sing to you. At one time you sang beautiful songs to us when you were here. Until then, I’ll cry, my soul will forever shed these tears. I know I will see you again, one day, in Our Father’s Home. I know you are there, singing besides His Throne. I’ll cry until I see you once again. My love to you I send. You will always be my cousin, my inspiration, and my friend. You will always be here. I love you, your cousin, Faith

    Faith Schroeder, Cousin
  • Dear Mrs.Antigua,

    Even though I have never met you Caitlin has told me a lot about you. She told that you were caring and a loving mother. We all miss you very much but, not as much as Caitlin and Aaron do. They will never love anyone like they loved you. They will miss you and never forget that tragic day. Everyone will miss you very much and hope that some day we will all meet again in that special place (heaven). We will remember you for always and always.
    Love always,
    Aimee

  • Lorraine~
    I only knew you a short time, but I think of you often. What a wonderful impression you made on me. Your spunk, Your beautiful smile, your overall a beautiful attitude towards life is refreshing. I am thankful that I was able to meet and know you. Doug and I got married! The wedding wasn’t the same without you and Brian there. I’m still finding it hard to believe that all of this mess has happened. I know you are in a better place now and that your family and friends miss you dearly. We are certainly lucky to have you for a guardian angel. Take care of you. Until we meet again……

    Lara, Friend
  • Lorraine, I did not know you, but after reading all the tributes to you, I feel like I really missed out by not meeting you. Wow! Your family and friends adored you. I have 2 children of my own, and the message from your Caitlin has sent me over the edge, into tears. I am so so sorry that your mama had to leave you both. She loved you so very much, and I just know that she is watching over you. Look for a penny on the ground, next time you go outside. Pick it up, and hold it close to your heart. That’s how you’ll know she’s there… She loved you so very much….

  • Dear Lorraine,
    I never met you but I feel I have known
    you forever,In fact I feel The same way
    about everyone who died on 9/11. I have heard
    stories about you and about how beautiful you looked and now that I’ve seen how you look words could’nt even compare to your beauty. You must be the most beautiful angel in Heaven inside and out.You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Forever Rest In Peace!

  • My dearest Lorraine,
    Today is a very bad day for me, I keep asking God why all of this had to happen? Every morning when I get up I talk to you and I tell you how much I love and miss you. Needless to say I never get any answers. I thought that as time goes by I would feel a little better but it doesn’t, every day I feel worst and worst and worst. I wish with all my heart that they will be able to find you so that I can have a little closure. Only God knows why these things happen. I always wanted to have a little girl and God blessed me with you, when you were a little girl I always told you how much I loved the name Lorraine and you used to tell me that you was glad that I named you Lorraine because you loved that name. Only you and God knows how much I miss you. This is going to be our first summer without you coming down to Florida with Aaron and Caitlin to spend the summer with us and you turning my house inside-out and rearrange the house for me. Your father misses you very much. You know how he gets when he is upset about something and he keeps telling me “Why her?” and I don’t have any answers. Anyway my love, I know that you are looking after me. Always remember that as a mother, there is not one second, not one hour that I do not think about my children. God bless you and keep you safe. Until we meet again, Love always, Mom

    Ramona Schroeder, Mother
  • Dear Lorraine,
    It’s already a year that I haven’t seen your happy face and great smile and it feels like a lifetime. Like your mom says, its suppose to get easier as time passes, but it hasn’t, especially now. I whisper to you and I hope you can hear me because I want to keep your spirit alive around me. You and I talked endlessly about me having a baby and now you are going to be an aunt. I told your mom and dad they are going to be grandparents again! I really wish you were here for this. I know you are watching over me, but its not the same. I will be sure to tell this baby who you are and what you mean to Matt and I and this baby will know that you are his/her Aunt Lorraine and you are to be cherised. Its just not the same without you. Matt and I feel very cheated. Both you and his dad are gone, and your both probably smoking cigars wherever you are, but we are selfish and we’d rather have you here with us. We love you, Lorraine–and Matt and I miss you terribly. I know everyone is asking that you watch over them, but listen for me because I will need some motherly advise soon–since you were and still are a great mom. Aaron and Caitlin are very lucky. I can only hope I will be as wonderful a mother as you were. You’re with me always,in my mind and in my heart. Love you! Stella

  • Lorraine, we didn’t know each other, but have two things in common, our first name and birth month. In looking at your picture now, I am full of tears for you and the other innocent people and heros that died that horrible day. I am also full of anger and vengeance for the animals that committed this violent and vicious act. Sept 11 will be remembered by every American and every good descent human being around the world forever. You’re with GOD now, you beautiful, beautiful girl. Rest in Peace.

    When the chips were down you were always there to brighten my day.
    I think about you everyday. I pray for you and your Family.

  • Para Lorraine y su familia:

    No tuve la suerte de conocerte, pero lo he hecho a traves de las palabras de aquellos que te aman y te lo manifiestan en sus tributos. La verdad es que la vida nos sorprende constantemente, pero es imposible comprender por que gente como tu, que merece estar viva, dando y recibiendo el amor de sus hijos y familia, tiene que partir de esta forma tan inesperada y cruel…

    Le he preguntado tantas veces a Dios por que?… Por que gente como tu, tan util, productiva, tan llena de vida, de logros, de amor tiene que caer victima del odio de gente absurda… Seguramente nunca lo sabre… Pero es maravilloso ver que tu vida no fue en vano, porque las huellas que dejaste en tu breve paso por la tierra te mantienen viva… Tu vives y viviras en el corazon de quienes te aman… Vives en cada latido del corazon de tus hijos, cuando cierran los ojos para verte con los ojos del alma… Vives en las lagrimas de tu madre, cada vez que suspira y se abraza a tus pequenos buscando consuelo… Vives porque ninguno de los que te ama esta dispuesto a olvidarte…

  • Dear Lorraine,
    Its me again and its almost that time for me to have this baby. I was telling Matt how I wish so hard that you were here for this. I know you would be so happy for us because that was the type of person you are. I set up the baby’s room and will put your picture there so you can watch over the baby. Just so you know, if its a girl, the baby will be named Sabrina Lorraine. Its something I feel that I can do to provide a constant reminder of the type of person I hope this child grows up to be. However, if its a boy, I don’t think I can name him Lorraine, even you would agree with that!!! Matt and I love and miss you very much. Your mom and I keep in touch at least once a week and of course we talk about you and how they are the baby’s adopted grandparents. I saw Caitlin and Aaron recently and they look like they are doing ok. Your children have such resilience, just like you. I asked Caitlin and Aaron to be on call for babysitting duty…. I really needed you here now more than ever, but I guess you are needed where you are more. Listen for me as I scream through labor ’cause I know you’ll be laughing at me as usual… I’m sure you’ve made friends where you are, ask them to go easy on me. I love and miss you very much. Stella….

  • Hey Lorraine, Today marks the 2nd Anniversary of your passing. It’s been a long 2 yrs. I thought I would be able to handle it and not cry, but as soon as I saw the victim’s children reading out the names and I heard them say your name,my eyes got watery. And being that I was about to enter mom’s house I couldn’t let her see me crying otherwise she would start crying and be depressed. But from home I shed a few tears because just the thought of Aaron and Caitlin not having you here just saddened my heart.

    I know you’re looking out not only for your children but all of our children. I miss you dearly. I know this must be just as hard for you as it is for us. I sometimes feel as if it’s not real.

    Well, I have to get back to work. Just know that I’ll always have you and the kids in my prayers. And that I’ll make every effort to keep track of how Aaron and Caitlin are doing.God Bless Rainey

    Love your cousin,
    Kassi and family.

  • DEAR LORRAINE, THIS HAS BEEN THE LONGEST 2 YEARS I’VE EVER EXPERIENCED. SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2003 WAS A VERY HARD DAY FOR ME. I WAS FEEDING YOUR NEPHEW MATTHEW AND WATCHING TV ANXIOUSLY AWAITING FOR YOUR NAME AND PICTURE TO COME UP AND WHEN IT DID, THE WHOLE WORLD CAN SEE WHAT A TREMENDOUS SACRAFICE YOUR LIFE WAS IN DEFENDING THE PRIVILEDGES OUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE. I WISH YOU WERE HERE TO SEE MATTHEW. HE LOVES BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, SO OF COURSE HE WOULD OF LOVED YOU. I SHOW HIM YOUR PICTURE AND TALK ABOUT YOU TO HIM. I WILL MAKE SURE HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE. I’M SURE YOU KNOW, THIS HAS BEEN QUITE A YEAR FOR ME. I WISH YOU WERE HERE FOR THAT, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH MY FAMILY WAS A WONDERFUL SUPPORT SYSTEM DURING MY THERAPY,YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN THE ICING ON THE CAKE. I KNOW THAT ONE LOOK AT YOU AND THIS COULD HAVE BEEN JUST ANOTHER WALK IN THE PARK FOR ME. BUT AS ALWAYS-NOTHING IS EVER EASY. MATT AND I TALK ABOUT YOU ALL THE TIME. I SPEAK TO YOUR MOM AND WE HELP EACH OTHER GET THROUGH THIS BY TALKING ABOUT YOU AND HOW TRULY AMAZING YOU ARE AS A DAUGHTER AND A TRUSTING AND LOYAL FRIEND. A PERSON LIKE YOU IS VERY RARE. YOU ARE SO MISSED LORRAINE, I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN. BUT YOU WOULD BE PROUD OF US. THE KIDS ARE DOING GREAT AND WE TALK TO BRIAN TO MAKE SURE THINGS ARE GOOD ALL AROUND. MY SON IS MISSING OUT ON SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL. SO PLEASE WATCH OVER HIM WITH HIS GRANDPA EDDIE. BY THE WAY, HE TINKLED ON YOUR PICTURE OVER HIS CHANGING TABLE!!! MATT AND I LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH. OUR HEARTS ARE STILL EMPTY WITHOUT YOU. HAPPY 35TH BIRTHDAY. THE MARGARITAS ARE ON ME THE NEXT TIME I SEE YOU. LOVE AND LAUGHS ALWAYS, STELLA

  • If it was ever possible to turn back the hands of time, we would not hesistate for a moment to have you back with us. It has been a while since I last wrote and just thought I would drop a little note. Its important that we never forget the sacrifices you made and we cherish the memory of you. The holidays are almost here again, and while they are a time of celebration, I can’t help but feel a void because you are not here for them. Stella is doing great with her little boy and I know she thinks of you constantly. I keep in touch with her and we always bring up a “lorraine” story and it brings a smile to boht of our faces. I am sure you a putting a smile on everyone’s face in heaven too. Well, just a little note for now because I was thinking of you.

  • Dear Lorraine’s Family:
    My sister also lost her only daughter in 911 she worked for Cantor Fitzgerald her name was Monigue Dejesus. I feel for your whole family and especially Lorraine’s children. I know it is so hard for us adults to deal with lost but when it comes to two small children losing their parent and provider, I for the life of me could never imagine what does children could have felt and how hard it most have been for the grandparents to break this terrible news. I am so so sorry for your lost and I will keep you in my prayers. Most of the time people tend to tell you how it gets easy as time goes by but in actuality it does not. We continue missing our love ones. We could only continue to pray to our lord Jesus Christ to give us strength to carry on and for peace in this world. Just remember that Lorraine is now one of our angels along with the many that were lost.

  • Dear Lorraine,
    The holidays have come and gone. The family made it thru one more time. Your mother and Charlie were with the children this year. They had a good visit. The road has been a long one but with love from everyone we all made it. You would be happy with all the things Al has accomplished with Caitlin and Aaron. Al does Caitlin’s hair he has gotten to be a pro at it. He talk alot with Aaron to guide him in the right path. All the uncles share get time with them They enjoy when Kelsy comes over they laugh and play alot. When the family get together there are always stories of you and we all enjoy repeating them. Thankgsgiving was special Caitlin had a poem and read it before dinner. We cried but thank ed God for giving us Aaron and Caitlin. Thru them you live. Your picture is everwhere in the house. Al and the children have a picture of the four of you in the livingroom. The first thing you see when you come in. Ebe and Kenny go over often and enjoy the day with them. Your titi flaca often writes to you . She would be happy to know the children and Al are doing good. Lorraine thank you for always being there to watch over the children and Al. Every little bit counts. So till next time God Bless Lidia

    It is hard to believe that it has been 3 years since that sad day. I remember all the good “stock loan” stories we could tell. I remember having drinks at a crowded “Southwest” that summer. But mostly, I remember that you were a good person and to always keep you in our prays.

  • Three years have gone by and so much has happened. You would be proud of your baby cousin, I met someone and got married. I talk about you alot to him and when he saw your pichure again tonight he said very tenderly you looked so young. We will always remember you young and beautiful. I remember one night in Queens we were just chillin on the bed watching E.T. I was pretty young yet the impression still stayed with me through the years. Hey Grandma must have been on a roll because she gave me a copy of E.T too. I remember getting it and watching it with you on another occasion thats all I can say about the movie. O yeah and there was that strange looking alien friend from another planet. Its suddenly all coming back(hee hee) Anyway the impression made I cherish now more than before. Plus twenty years later Ive moved on to greater more grown up movies(Disney,s Beauty and the Beast, sshh dont tell.) Actually come to think of it I never had the choice you just put on E.T that night but right this very minute I remember why. You did ask me first and I said yes I wanted to watch it. You were tryng to entertain me I remember because not one part of you was thinking about yourself.You thought of me. You are the same age as my sister Rita. 10 years older than me. You took care of me that night and it took me way too long to even realize you did. You took care of many, without probably even noticing. I have so much to say and will write more very soon.Love Your Baby Cousin, Faith Patriss (Schroeder)

    Faith Patriss, cousin
  • I do not know you but as mother I felt drawn to you picture and to read all those who have wrtiien how much they miss you. I read what your daughter wrote to you and, though its three years later, still made me cry. Seeing all these pictures makes this tragedy all to real. I feel that by reading what a wonderful person you were, makes me want to strive to appreciate every moment in life. May you continue to be your children’s “Guardian Angel”.

  • I always remember what Frankie used to say, “Friends are the only family that you get to choose”. We are about to have the 4th anniversary of the day that changed our lives. It seems like yesterday that we were talking over email and making some plans to celebrate our birthdays later in the week. We will wish for all of eternity that we could turn back the hands of time and have you with us. Stella and I always talk about you and we laugh but also feel that sense of loss and sadness that will never go away. September brings those memories rushing back from that fateful day, but i will always cherish the times we spent together and the memories I have of you. Wishing you were here.

  • Dear Lorraine,
    It has been quite a long time since I’ve been able to send you a message. Matt and I have finally came into the 21st century and have a computer in the house. And this is the very first thing I wanted to do on the computer–write you a message telling you how much I wish you could be here with me. So much has happened. Your nephew Matthew is now 3 years old, but so much has happended to me since his birth. I know you know what’s going on, but this time its a little more serious. How I wish you were here!!! I just spoke to your mom the other day and told her that I was mad because you weren’t here. Everyone around me is having a hard time dealing with my illness, but I know you would have found a way to see me thru no matter how it will turn out. Anyway, I made a promise to you that I would make sure my son knew who you are…and he does. Your picture at my wedding is in the living room and he knows you as TiTi Lorraine and blows kisses to you. I really feel terrible about not writing sooner. So I want to wish you all the Happy Birthday’s and Merry Christmas’s I’ve missed. But I do speak to at night, even more so now. My life has not been the same without you and never will. I miss you Lorraine, Matt too. We needed you here with us. The last time I saw Aaron and Caitlin was over the summer and they look great. You would be so proud of them. I was proud for you!! This is a hard time for me now…life and/or death is more relevant in my situation….but if it should happen, you better have a drink waiting for me….margarita-no salt-on the rocks. I love you…Stella ps…your nephew is a hot pepper just like you!!!!

    STELLA FAICCO, BEST FRIEND
  • Dear Lorraine, I know its been quite a long time and I do apologize, but believe it or not, Matt and I just got into the 21st century with a computer. As you know, you have a nephew, we call him Mr. Fresh. Your parents and Aaron and Caitlin get a big kick out of him. I promised you he would know who you are and he does. So much has happened. How I wish you were here. I am being selfish right now, but I really need you. I know you know what’s going on, so please watch over me and my family because we really need it. We miss you terribly and need you here, but maybe you can do more from wherever you are. I speak to your parents and I saw the kids. They look great and I wish I could see them more. I miss you Lorraine, you have no idea what its been like. I always think of you then I get mad at you, then I miss you and then I laugh. You are always in my heart. All my love….stella

  • I picked this lovely young woman because it is so heart wrenching for children to lose their mother at such young age and under those circumstances. I dont know a single soul from the 9-11 attacks but I was horrified and hurt when it all happened.
    I was reading all of the tributes left for this beautiful young woman and its amazing the amount of love one can feel from reading all of these messages.
    I hope Lorraine’s parents will feel and see their daughter in the behaviors of their grand-children.

  • Hey Rainey, Happy 5th anniversary in heaven. Girl I thought I would be able to deal with your name being called and a picture of you came up and I just lost it for a moment. I was @ work so I had to compose myself. I was hoping it would be easier but for some it isn’t so easy. I love looking at your picture to remind me how beautiful and young you were.And how you were so full of life. Lorraine I pray for Aaron and Caitlin, That you and the great Lord above give them some peace and love during this time. And for Titi Ramona and Charlie to find some consolation in this anniversay. God bless, watch over us and until we can meet again.

  • Dear Lorraine, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I hope you are having a margharita w/no salt on the rocks! I saw your family this weekend. This kids, well they are not really kids anymore, are just so grown up and wonderful. I caught myself just staring at them in amazement. Aaron is more handsome then ever and Caitlin, well lets just say..VAVAVAROOOM. I know you are proud of them from wherever you are and I want you to know what a wonderful feeling it was for me to see them and spend time with them. I couldn’t squeeze them hard enough when we said goodbye. I hope my son turns out to be as respectful and kind as they are. I would be truly blessed. Even more if you were here to see Matthew, but I know you are watching him. Matt and I miss you very much and always say how different our lives would be with you here. I miss you desparately. You and I both know what happen this past 9/11. I couldn’t come to you, but you came to me–and you know what I’m talking about. Even from wherever you are, you are still there for me. I love you always. Happy Birthday again. Love, Stella

    today is your birthday! I can always remember wishing each other a happy birthday along with Frankie. it seems like yesterday that you were taken away from us. There isnt a day or a week that goes by when we don’t think of you and what we lost. There is a song that I listen to “Wake me up when September Ends” and I cant help but to be brought back to the memories of that day. Stella thinks of you always and she knows you are looking out for her. Missing you!!! your friend

  • They say that time heals all wounds but some will take a lifetime. I don’t know why God takes all the people I care about away from me. Friday he reunited you and Stella. I don’t know if he knew how many margaritas he is going to have to stock up with.
    She was so brave in her fight but in the end it was more than she could handle. This week we have very few words but our tears are in abundance. I cant tell you how much you both are missed. Take care of her and make sure you two stay outta trouble ya hear? 🙂

  • Hi Lorraine,
    I just visited the other memorial and left a similar message there. I really came here to express my sympathy to your family and friends for another terrible loss. I didn’t know your friend Stella but I feel as if I did from reading the tributes over the years. I hope you two had a great reunion. I also have to mention again as in the other tribute how proud you must be of your children. When reading about Caitlin’s sweet 16 that really hit home. Our daughter is turning 16 this year also and I can’t even imagine not being the one shopping for her dress or planning her party. It truly broke my heart to know you couldn’t do that with her. I know you were with her every step of the way but I can’t help but feel you were cheated! You’ll be in our hearts and prayers always

  • Lorraine,we never met each other, and that was my loss, but I remember your picture on your Mom’s desk at her job in the dentist office in Brooklyn NY, You were only about 7 years old. Her and I became friends when I started taking my 6 children there. She always talked about her kids as I did mine to her. From your MOM and from all the beautiful tributes to you, I can see you were a very special person. I remember that terrible day, but little did I know that Ramona’s special princess was taken from her on that day. With Life’s turning roads your Mom and I lost touch for a while, and I was completely shocked to hear that horrible news. I know you are her angel in Heaven and will be there to greet her when God calls her Home to be with you again. I keep your MOM and your children in my prayers. Your leaving us was a loss for an awful lot of people, but the time you were here you made an awful lot of people happy. Rest in Peace Lovely Lorraine.

    Peggy Walton-Castro, Ramona's Friend
  • Lorraine, what a terrible loss for everyone that knew you and especially for your Mom Ramona, my friend of many years ago. When I met her working in Brooklyn NY, there was a picture of a beautiful 7 year old princess on her desk, and that was you. I was really saddened to hear that you were there on that terrible day in Sept. But now you are safe with our Heavenly Father. You are forever in the hearts of your loved ones, especially your Mom and your beautiful children. I know you left them with a lot of beautiful memories to sustain them till they see you again. may you rest in peace.

    Peggy Walton-Castro, Lorraine's Mom's Friend
  • Lorraine, I am a friend of Ramona’s, and I remember your picture at the age of seven on her desk at work.
    She was so proud of her little girl, and even now she was proud of what you became.Ramona and I lost track of each other for a few years, but when I looked her up and got in touch with her, my heart dropped so low, when she said to me over the phone, I lost my Lorraine in the 9/11. Seeing your picture at that young age, no one could ever have imagined the beautiful and great person you were to turn into. From all of the beautiful things said about you, I’m so sorry I never knew you, but more than that I am sorry that, that terrible day took you away from everyone. But I did tell your Mother to Thank God that she was chosen to be your Mom and you her daughter, because you left her with some beautiful memories,as well as everyone that knew you. May you rest in Peace, and God Bless your children.

  • Miss you girl! Words can’t describe what I feel today.You would think that as the years went by it would get easier but it doesn’t.Love you!

  • Dearest Lorraine,
    How can it be almost 10 years that you were taken away from all of us??? Tears stream down my face as I think of you and your family and of course your amazing amazing smile. I could never figure out how a person could be so happy all of the time, but that was you. I hear your voice and think of you always. We often visit your memorial by the train station. My girls never had the chance to meet you but they know how very special you are & would have loved you too. I have a picture of you from my bridal shower … I try to remember the great times we had but it’s so hard not to be sad. I hope you’re at peace … Love you, Irene

  • It’s another beautiful September Day, but you aren’t here. Today is the 10th anniversary and it seems like yesterday when we were speaking on the phone that morning. There are a lot of emotions going through all of our heads today but instead of getting angry I am just going to be happy that I got to know you and that we spent the few years we had having as much fun as we could together.
    If our tears could build a stairway
    And our memories make a lane
    I would walk right up to heaven
    And bring you back home again.
    Those were Stella’s words and she couldn’t have said it any better.

    Love You! Miss You!

    We think of Lorraine often. Ours was the first message on this page. We never knew Lorraine. We would later read her friend Stella’s messages of love and loss, only to find out later that she died. We hope they have reunited. The pain and loss for both families must be so hard. We documented Stella’s posts on this page: )a href=”http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=108088523″target=”_blank”>Stella Faicco (1969-2007))/a> Stella is a very popular name for newborn girls in this community so we think of both Lorraine and Stella each time we hear that a new child was named Stella.
    God bless
