A Tribute to Michael S Baksh

Although I abandoned this blog long ago, I wanted to take a moment to repost this for anyone who may stumble across this page.

A tribute to Michael S Baksh....
Today is the anniversary of one of the worst days in the history of our country. I'd
like to tell you about one of the victims of that tragic day 8
years ago. Michael S Baksh was a 36 year old man who loved music and loved to dance. His wife and I share the same first name. Fate took him from her and their 2 young children. September 11, 2001 was his first day as an insurance executive at a company located in the World Trade Center.

The little I know from my research on Michael tells me that he was a man who loved his family and truly enjoyed life. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Please keep the Baksh family and all others that were victims of that tragic day in your thoughts and prayers. Feel free to share your thoughts and feelings on this tragic event in the comment section. If you happened to know Michael Baksch, please share your memories of him - I, for one, would love to know more. If you didn't know him, google his name and you will find links to many tributes.

We will never forget.

Just wanted to say hi! I love hearing from you on my blog, and I wish you'd give us a little update about your own family.

It was nice of you to remember someone who was lost on 9/11. So many tragic stories.

Hi My name is Marvina and I am Michael Baksh's sister. The obit that the Times did on my brother to this day leaves a hollow ache in the pit of my stomach.
I feel it didn't even touch much less scratch the surfice of who he was and was woefully inadequate.
He was a son, brother,uncle,husband,father and friend. He was someone who didn't try but did!!! He was a commediene, singer,sage,preacher, teacher someone who's life was cut short before it fully bloomed but his fragrance remains for us that loved him!!!

Thank you Marvina for sharing a little bit of who your brother was with us. I am so sorry for your loss. From the little bit I read about him, he sounded like a man I would have liked to know.
