Debbie was such a beautiful and caring person who touched many people in so many ways. Her exceptional looks and style made her one of a kind. Her dynamic personality would fill any room with happiness and joy. Her innocence was true and so pure. To know Debbie was to love her.

Debbie worked at eSpeed because she wanted to. She loved the interaction with such young, powerful, intelligent people. Whether it was arranging the board meetings or preparing organization charts, Debbie felt proud in contributing to the success of the company.

Debbie meant the world to me. My life will always shine in the light of her life. My heart will always be filled with the love and beauty that filled her soul. My body will always ache with the burden that I bear.

I miss her so much.

  Alysia Basmajian

Date of Birth: July 1, 1978
Department: Accounting

Alysia Basmajian was born in Longview, Washington, but spent the majority of her life in Richmond, Virginia. Alysia attended the College of William and Mary and graduated in May of 2000, with a degree in accounting. While a student, Alysia gave birth to a daughter, Kaela Grayce. Kaela was the joy of Alysia’s life. Alysia treasured every moment with her child. After graduation, Alysia and her family settled in New Jersey. She began working for Cantor Fitzgerald in the fall of 2000.
By the time Alysia turned 22, she had graduated from college, become a mother, married, moved to a new city and found a job. Along the way she influenced so many people. Her drive to realize her dreams was matched by her intense love for her family. Her life centered around the people closest to her. Her true passion in life was art, and she found painting as a ready means of self-expression.
One of the first things people remember about Alysia was her smile. Alysia possessed a contagious smile, one that made everyone around her smile. Coupled with her compassionate personality, Alysia was one of those rare people we meet in life; a person who makes the lives of those around her better and happier.
Alysia means so many things to so many different people. She was a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a friend. She leaves behind a daughter, husband, and many friends and family. In such a brief amount of time, she touched so many lives. Alysia will always be remembered as a beautiful, loving woman.

Department: Money Markets
Position: Government Bond Salesman

I see you still in everything I do. You’ve been my inspiration for most of my life. I see you in our children. Everything they do is an imitation of you. I see you in the sunshine, because you loved beautiful weather and took advantage of it in your great exuberance of life. I see you in a smile because you were always laughing and having a great time in whatever you did.
You were the person that everyone wanted to be with. Your humor, your intellect, your craftsmanship was a gift to anyone who came near you.
I am grateful that we had so many years together. You will always be my everything.
I will love you forever.

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other that we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference into your tone;
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word it always was
Let it be spoken without effect,
Without the ghost of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was;
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.

I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.

Canon Henry Scott

This was given to me by my sister-in-law, Sandy Rainbow, not long after Sept. 11th.

Carl-my love-you are, as you have always been to me, the light from the one hundred brightest stars.

  Colleen A Barkow

Date of Birth: March 13, 1975
Position: Facilities Project Manager

Colleen was one of the most genuine and uninhibited people I have ever met. I don’t recall ever speaking to her without a smile on my face. She was a breath of fresh air in a world full of egos and self consciousness. I feel lucky to have known her and will miss her. She brought happiness to everyone who came in contact with her and did it day in, day out. She was alwyas so helpful may peace be with you until me meet again.

  Paul Barbaro

Date of Birth: May 27, 1966
Position: Strategic Development Software Engineer

Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, Paul and I dated for seven years before marrying in Nov.1992. Our first son, Paul, was born in May 1996 and Joseph was born in Jan. 1999. We moved to Holmdel, New Jersey in August of 2001.

Paul graduated from St. Peter’s Boys High School and the College of Staten Island where he received a BS degree and later received a Master’s degree from Columbia University, both in computer science. He was extremely talented and his passion for his career enabled him to work on a number of high profile projects for many firms, the last being Optimark Technologies before joining eSpeed in Dec. 2000.

Paul was a beautiful man who always had a happy outlook on life, a man who was strong in both character and stature. He was a wonderful, loving husband, incredible father and my best friend. His talents were endless and he was successful in all his pursuits. Paul and Joseph will be overwhelmed with pride, as I am, when they think of him. He was a natural teacher. Most importantly, Paul had his priorities straight. He had a strong faith and looked forward to coming home and spending time with his family every day. Paul and Joseph will stand tall when they think of him: intelligent, strong and compassionate. To think of all his good qualities and the guidance his family will miss makes his absence immense. Paul and Joseph will be in awe of their Dad, as he will be of them. Nothing can ever change what we have been and will always be to each other.

Love Always,
Your Wife, Kim

Her warmth, Kindness and genuine concern about others were the cornerstones of her life.
