Pete Davidson’s mother Amy Davidson remembered her late husband Scott Davidson Monday, as the late New York City firefighter died in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Amy posted a carousel of retro images of her late spouse on the 22nd anniversary of the attacks, which claimed nearly 3,000 lives after terrorists crashed planes into the buildings, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania after hijacking four flights.

Amy captioned the post: ‘Happiest days of my life and I didn’t know it … Never forget and always be grateful.’

Amy, who is mother to the comedian/actor, 29, and daughter Casey, 25, posted images of Scott with his young children, including a pic in which Pete was wearing his father’s firefighting coat.

The heroic late firefighter was also seen posing with both kids and a life-size Elmo; taking Casey swimming; and posing in a romantic shot with Amy. An image of Scott was held in a picture frame atop a pair of his boots.

Amy was hailed with supportive comments in the adjacent thread, as one person wrote, ‘Thinking of you and others I know especially today. Your courage is a testament to the human spirit.’

Said another person: ‘Your son has done a amazing job keeping his memory alive. Only last night did I tell your husbands story to my 7 year old to explain how brave the emergency services were that day.’

The former Saturday Night Live star this past March opened up on the podcast Real Ones about learning of his father’s tragic passing when he was seven.

‘My dad told me he was going to pick me up from school on 9/11,’ said the Bupkis actor. ‘I got picked up by my mom.’

The King of Staten Island actor said his mother didn’t tell him ‘what was going on for like, three days.

‘She kept telling me, “Dad’s at work,” “He’s coming home” – whatever; I had no idea.’

Pete said in the interview that Amy ‘grounded’ him from watching TV in an effort to shield him from the tragic reality.

‘Then one night, I turned on the TV and I just saw my dad on the TV,’ Pete said. ‘I was like, “Oh, OK.” And they were like, these are all the firemen that are, like, dead.’

‘It was weird because we didn’t know he was dead for, like, three weeks. They were finding people, you know? They were pulling people out of s***, and there was just some sort of hope.’

Pete said that ‘it was just up and down and nobody knew how to deal with it.’

Davidson said that the traumatic events led to him dealing with abandonment and trust issues as an adult.

‘You know, dad says he’s coming to pick you up and he doesn’t,’ Pete said. ‘For life, I’m like, I don’t believe anyone, and I’m trying to learn how to believe people – and Hollywood isn’t exactly the greatest place to learn that skill.’

Last year on September 11, Casey took to Instagram with emotional words for her late father.

‘This year more then ever I wish you could be here,’ she said. ‘We miss you, we celebrate you and we remember you every day. Proud to be your caseygirl.’

Pete in 2015 said on Twitter of his father, ‘All jokes aside. There’s not a day that goes by where I dont think of u. Ur my hero. Cant wait to see u again someday.’
