  16. Today I saw an honors memorial where heroes in the service were individualized and there were individual flags for each of the heroes who gave their lives on 9-11. I came upon Terence’s (same name as my dad and Irish like us) flag and said a quick prayer. Looked at a bunch more flags with individual’s names and on way out stopped at another random flag. Coincidentally, it was Terence’s again. So decided I’d remember him in name today and research who he was. I am thankful for his sacrifice. Love and best wishes to his family from St. Louis, Missouri.
