Message: In the early 70's I was in college near St. Louis, MO and along with three close friends, I fell in love with hockey. Two of us supported the Blues and two the Bruins. On thing we all agreed on was how much we liked Ace Bailey. There was just something about him. We regularly gathered at "our" table in a fast food joint, dubbed it the "Ace Bailey Table" in honor of Ace, and discussed what we wanted to do with our lives. We've settled in different places, married and had kids, but three of us have remained in close friendship over the years. When we heard of the loss of Ace, our thoughts returned to our times at the table and that "something" about Ace. We will remember him fondly for the rest of our lives. God bless you and him.

Message: Today is the 3rd anniversary, and I have just read Mary's tribute. She and I were roommates in college and I share some of those great memories with her of our gatherings at the "Ace Bailey table". In those days we all dreamed big and were inspired by Ace's enthusiasm for life. Though 30 years have passed, our friendship was cemented by those good times, our love of hockey and Ace Bailey. Following the attacks 3 years ago, when I heard Garnet "Ace" Bailey was lost that day, I was deeply saddened. But despite that sadness, a wry smile came to my face as I thought of Ace. The tragedy of that day could not overcome the warmth I felt at the mention of his name. He will always be special to me and my friends. God Bless Ace Bailey and his family, and all the families of 9/11.

Message: I was a ten year old little boy from Boston in 1972, and, like most of the people in the city, I lived for the Bruins. I literally watched all of their games that 71-72 season, and I loved the team's spirit, as well as their success. From Bobby Orr to Gerry Cheevers, they all clearly enjoyed hockey and life. That was no more evident than among the team's "Black Aces," the fourth line, lead by Ace Bailey. Though the saw spotty playing time, they loved the game, they loved their fans, they loved being a part of it. As I was not a great player myself, I tried to be like Ace Bailey...

Message: Ace was a great penalty killer in his career, and the first player I understood to be a "grinder" or "role player" in hockey, which is like being a relief pitcher in baseball, or on the special teams in American football. He was the only person killed on 9/11/01 that I knew anything about besides my cousin Brian Dale, who was on Flight 11.

Message: I'll remember you as you were on the Big Bad Bruins of the 70's. I still can see your picture in a hockey card I had, with that white turtle neck under the B's Shirt. Rest in Peace Ace!
