2,996 Tribute to Marian Hrycak

This entry is part of the 2,996 Tribute Project to remember the victims of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks on the fifth anniversary of those attacks. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of this tragedy.

Each of the bloggers involved with this project has been assigned one of the victims of 9/11. I did not know Marian "Marty" Hrycak personally, nor did I directly know any of the other victims of 9/11 or their families. Still, as I got to know more about this man while putting together this scrapbook page tribute, I began to feel a connection with him. He reminds me so much of my father: quiet, hard-working, passionate about his collections, and devoted to his family.

Marty Hrycak, we remember you:

As I have researched this tribute, I have found more than 800 web sites dedicated to the 9/11 attacks with Marian Hrycek's name within. It has been heartbreaking, and yet uplifting, to read the messages from his family, friends, and acquaintances - he is truly missed by many, many people. It has been my honor to work on this tribute.
