memory of John W. Farrell
(Jan. 23 1960 - Sept. 11, 2001)
Thank you so much
for visiting our website. I want to
share with you a little bit about how
and why Heartworks got started.
On the morning of
September 11, 2001, I had just finished
giving my daughter a spoonful of yogurt
when the phone rang. It was my
brother asking me if I had the
television on. Life as my family
knew it changed between that spoonful
and the next. My brother-in-law
John W. Farrell never came home from his
job in the Twin Towers. My sister
Maryanne had dated him since she was 16.
They were married with four children:
Kaitlin, Patrick, Molly and Colin.
John had been like a member of my
close-knit family since I was seven
years old. Click
