  1. Not a day goes by that we don’t remember you lovingly. So much has changed since our lives were shattered but we know what you always said so I will raise our children and make them happy. We love and miss you always. Take care of Nana and Poppy until we are all together again. We will always ache for you.

  5. I walked the stairs of the World Trade Center towers today, at Red Rocks, in Morrison Colorado. I had John’s badge on my chest. I’ve done the walk since 2009, when it was first introduced at Red Rocks. Every single year, I walk and climb the stairs with fellow civilians and firefighters in honor of those who risked all to help others. I am an ER nurse and help what John can bring to me. I hope this finds his
    family well. I am proud to have walked with John today. Thank you! Peace and power to all those affected on 9-11. We will never forget!
