To the Fields family: I met Samuel Fields in June 2000 while working at 1 WTC. I named him Smiley because no matter what type of day he might have had, he always had this beautiful smile on his face. We would often chat, and I knew that he had a heart of gold. After September 11th, I searched the papers and watched the television to find a hint of what may have happened to Smiley. Deep down in my heart, I knew he would be one of the missing because knowing Smiley, he would have never left the building as long as people were still there. He would have been working with the FDNY & NYPD, side-by-side. My co-workers and I all felt the same. Two weeks later, I saw his picture in the missing column. My heart shattered into a million pieces. Samuel Fields will forever be in our hearts.
