This time it's taken a couple of days to really reflect the "flurry" of activity of the last couple of long days & nights, so many thoughts, emotions, memories have been "awoke"! 10 years since that dreadful phone call, 10 years since watching you slip away, 10 years since Heaven called you home....not a moment goes by when you are not remembered for being our Hero! Please keep us under your constant watch!

Hero's live Forever....in our Hearts!
