We remember.....




Richard David Rosenthal, 50, of Fair Lawn, NJ, vicie president of finance with Cantor Fitzgerald. died Sept. 11, 2001, a victim of the coordinated terrorist attacks against the United States in New York, Washington DC, and elsewhere.

While I was deeply saddened by the news of Rich's passing, I was happy to hear that he was happier in his career. Rich always worked hard and was always someone you could turn to in difficult times. All he really wanted was to be there for his family. He worked hard to provide them with a nice life, but working hard took away his time to spend with them. I will miss Rich's sense of humor, his genuinely good nature, and his integrity.
Joe Rice, former co-worker

I knew Richard when we were both children. We went to elementary school together and Sunday school. I am so sorry to have learned that he passed away and to have died on 911 makes it only worse. He was always a kind sweet person.

There are so many stories and remembrances and honorariums about September 11.  So many lost souls for no reason. Take care and have a nice week.

Very nice tribute. Thanks for taking the time to post this. I know it's difficult to remember and reflect on this was for me, anyway.

Richard Rosenthal was one of those guys that coaches his kids team and was active in their school. One of the dads that all of us with little kids see at the playground, maybe nod at in Shoprite, or somewhere else, encounter in town.

I live in his hometown. I am a volunteer helping to fundraise for our 9/11 Memorial, and I have been a firsthand witness to the outpouring of grief at his passage.  It seemed that he was well-remembered by people from all over town, that almost everyone knew him or his family, went to school with him, knew his wife or his kids. He had strong, deep roots here, and is in the hearts of a lot of us.

God bless him and his family.  The world is a little sadder without him.
