- Lou Scorza: I did not know Colin, but my wife and I met his mother, Julia, at the last night of the Tribute in Lights, here in NYC in April. I remember she was just sitting on a bench, alone in her thoughts. We started speaking, and she related her story of that morning, and the horror and pain she and her family felt then and still feel everyday. Colin had a wife and son. It is evident in our conversations with Julia what a fine young man Colin was. I think of him often, and of his family. Julia is a wonderful woman who under the most horrible circumstances conducts herself with a dignity and grace possessed by very few people. May Colin and all the other victims of that day rest in eternal peace, and may God grant solace to the families. God Bless
- Harold Boyce: I knew Colin personally. Even tho' I had not been in contact with him in a number of years, news of this awful day and his death still naughs at my heart. I walked Colin to school on many a mornings from his home in Rock Hall,

Keep our place warm, for we shall surely meet again someday.To his wife and son, tho' I have never met you, you will always be on my heart and in my prayers. God Bless, And God Bless St Thomas, Barbados . America
- Wade Gill: I can vaguely remember Colin as a youngster, a little younger than me growing up in
in the early 70's, I knew his immediate family really well (great folk). I can't imagine what he went through in that crumbling building on September 11, just the thought of it bring tears to my eyes, "what a sacrifice" My heart go out to his family and all the love ones he left behind. Barbados
- Ken Brandeis: I am of a similar age and had one child, similar to Colin. I just had a second and chose the name, Colin, because I wanted my son to help to continue the memory of those victimized on September 11. My heart goes out to Colin's family.
- William: I knew Colin casually through work. I heard through other co-workers that Colin passed away while helping others escape. I can not put words to my admiration of such a hero
- Mary Anne Prevost: Colin, you made the world a better place.
