The Very Worst Day of the Year…

My story is appearing today on Mamalode… I will do my best to update this page with the link today, but frankly, today just really really sucks for me.

I did have two pictures I wanted to share with you.

First is a picture of a gift from the Firefighter I delivered water with around Ground Zero. (I seriously would love to talk to him.  Are you him? Do you know him? If so email me at

He said that this Beanie Baby that he said his daughter had given him.  He told me to hold on to it and to remember him always.  Trust me, I will NEVER FORGET.



Next is a picture of a Rosary that was given to me by a Chaplin at Ground Zero.  I am not Catholic, but I have a deep and abiding faith.  There is power in it.



I have so much more I want to say, but right now I just can’t.  Never Forget those who died.  Never Never Never Forget.

  1. As I lay here beside your sweet little girl who is kicking her foot trying to go to sleep I remember you as a little boy and smile. Then I look at you today and am mso proud of the incredible man, husband and father you have become and tears of joy fall from my eyes. I love you and we will never forget that day or those like you that sacrificed to help those u didn’t even know. We also will never forget those who lost their lives. We love and respect you all.
