Letters to Hank

"Thank you so much for the beautiful song you wrote, "Halfway to Heaven". I had never thought about my son being halfway to heaven before I listened to your song. It gives me comfort to listen to your words. I lost my son, he was just 23 years old, his first job out of college. He was so proud of himself, he landed a good job and had already received two promotions in one year. His life was just beginning, and I was feeling proud that he was my son. Our pain is still raw that such a thing could happen here in NYC. It does bring me comfort to know that there are people like you in the world who want to bring comfort to others in pain. Thank you again."

"Thanks so much for the CD. "Halfway to Heaven" is a beautiful song and means so much to me. Had tears running down my face. But heaven is where we are all trying to get to...Thank you!"

"I want to thank you so much for the CD of "Halfway to Heaven". We really appreciate it. I will take it to my 9-11 support group next week so they all can enjoy it too. You are very kind to think of us."

"I am very interested in receiving a copy of your CD. I believe that you were sent here for a reason and your love and care and your generous time is very much appreciated. My brother was working and died in the North Tower on that horrible day. I now appreciate things and people in life more than ever. Thank you for your time. You will be in my prayers."

"I lost my sister on 9-11 at the WTC. She was in the north tower. She was 29 years old and my only sister. I miss her terribly. I am a member of Families of September 11th, and received the most recent newsletter, which stated that you are offering free copies of your CD "Halfway to Heaven" to members. Could I possibly be sent a copy of this CD? Thank you so much."

"I am the bereaved Mom of a 24 year old 9-11 WTC hero/victim. I have received the copy of your CD and just wanted to let you know how beautiful the words and music are. It truly brought tears to my eyes. Again, thank you for this wonderful tribute to all the 9-11 heroes/victims. May you be blessed..."

"If still available, I would like a copy of your 9-11 CD. My brother, a New York City fireman, was lost that day. In addition to a wife and children, he left a mother and brothers and sisters, as well as nieces, nephews, friends and on and on. Today hurts as much as 2001. They say you can get through it but we have found that you do not get over it! As a family member, I do thank you for your kindness."

"I would appreciate a copy of your CD and sheet music for "Halfway to Heaven". I lost my son on the 104th floor of Tower 1 on September 11th. Each day seems to get harder for us and something such as your song might help us to get through just one more day. Thank you for your kindness."

"My brother was a New York City fireman killed in the second tower on 9-11. He loved music and for a long part of his life never owned a TV, just a very extensive collection of music. His interest in music was not limited to a particular genre, he loved rock, opera and was open to all kinds. I would be interested in receiving a copy of the CD and sheet music for "Halfway to Heaven". I have a son who is planning on pursuing a career in the performing arts and he'd like to learn to sing your song. It sounds lovely. Thanks so much."

"I would be most interested in receiving a copy of your sheet music and CD of "Halfway to Heaven" written in honor of the victims of WTC 9-11. My son was in the first tower hit. Both he and I were never able to be in tune, but both of us loved any kind of music. I am hoping he is hearing heavenly music now. I miss him so."

"I would love a free copy of your song "Halfway to Heaven". I lost my only daughter on 9-11 at the World Trade Center, Tower #2, & my life has not been the same. A part of my heart has been ripped out & maybe this will give me some kind of comfort. Thank you in advance."

"My son's father, a Port Authority police officer, was killed in 9-11. I am collecting all that I can for my son for when he gets older, he is almost 2 years old. Can you please send me a copy of your song, I would be very grateful. Thank you for your time and talent."

"My father was killed on 9-11 on the 104th floor of WTC2. He never met his granddaughter (I was six months pregnant at the time). I am compiling as much 9-11 information for her as possible and someday will tell her what we all went through. I would love to include your CD in my keepsakes."

"I just read about your CD and I'm wondering if you would kindly send me a copy. I lost my brother at the WTC and every time I find that someone has done something dedicated to that horrific day, it touches my heart, and although I have yet to be able to make it through a song, a poem or a story without tears, somehow it always makes me feel better to know how very much someone cares enough to dedicate their talent to it."

"I hope you receive this email. A week ago my family took part in the memorials surrounding Sept. 11th. My brother-in-law was killed in Tower One. Our family will never be the same. Our hearts are broken. We miss this great man so much. It has been a tough week. Fortunately, I received your CD of "Halfway to Heaven" while at the Cantor Fitzgerald memorial service. Tonight was extremely difficult for me. Lots of tears which brought me to open your CD. Thankfully, I got to listen to your wonderful song. The memorials are always great, as odd as that sounds, because it is so comforting to be with other families. However, the 9-11 Anniversary takes a lot out of us. This weekend I am still feeling the effects. This road we travel is so difficult. Please know that your words and music were instrumental in comforting me. You helped me get through tonight. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Easier said than done sometimes. Halfway to heaven is the way I will try to see this awful tragedy. God bless you for your gift to the families."
