To the family and friends of Lt. Gerald Rex and his fellow officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Gerald tragically died as a result of his heroism following 9/11. None of our 9/11 heroes will be forgotten.

To Lt. Rex's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated servic Gerald gave to his city and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 30, 2009.
