Paul and I road the LIRR together during high school as we attended St. John's Prep, Class of 1972, in Brooklyn. He will be remembered by his classmates as our song goes "we will never let his star grow dim". Forever in our hearts & minds!

Dear Paul:
A long time ago, I made a promise to each of you who gave all you had on 11 September 2001. My promise was to write a reflection to each of you, honoring you the best way I can. So, Paul, here is your reflection:
Honor. To many people, it is just a 5 letter word. To some, it is something that can be traded or given away, or ignored. But to you, and each of us that wears a badge and a gun, it is the very backbone of what we are made up of, in doing a job most people never want to do.
But your sacrifice, and that of all are fellow brothers and sisters who lost their lives saving others, has taken the word honor and given it a new meaning. Police officers having been dying for many years before 11 September 2001, but none could have had the effect that your death and the deaths of all the rest has had.
Honor is, the ability for your family to know that they lost you while giving others a second chance at life. Honor is the fact that you lived the motto we police officers live by everyday, "to protect and serve". Honor is being a part of the greatest fraternity on this planet. Honor is being a hero to not just a group of citizens, but to the whole country. And heroes never die...they just get re-assigned to another post in Heaven.
Thank you for being there when it counted most. "Above all else, honor". R.Tomassi
Rest in peace, we have the watch. Amen

To the family and loved ones of Officer Paul Jurgens and his fellow officers with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department and most especially to Paul:

Mere words seem insignificant to honor your heroism and courage which will never be forgotten. On this the fifth anniversary week of the tragic devastation wreaked upon our nation, those brave men and women who lost their lives safeguarding others are remembered and revered.

May your spirit continue to soar and your memory continue to inspire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect and gratitude for the distinquished service Paul gave to his community and country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 11, 2001.

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.

You were called into this profession and our Lord and Savior has blessed you because:
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because God honors it.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for your fellow man, while serving, defending, and protecting others in your community.

Thank you for your service to America. Your efforts saved thousand that horrible day.
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. You will be in our hearts forever.

I tried to attend as many funerals as I could during these darkest of days as my way of showing respect to families and coworkers of all of my brother and sister Officers and Firefighters. I cannot find the words to say how sorry I am that we have lost these great heroes. I cannot express my thanks enough for your bravery and sacrifice. My prayers are with you and all of your families......................AC

My Prayers are with all the friends and family of all the officers who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
I lost my brother tragically, Det. David Taylor, Greensboro PD, On August 7, 2001. I was in NY for my fiancee's Mother's funeral the first of Sept. I was stranded there for 3 weeks due to this atrocity. As I watched the events on TV, I cried for all those who lost their lives. But was especially emotional about the Police Officers and the Firefighters and their families, as I had just recently suffered a tragic loss myself. As I walked through the streets in the days following the attack, I cried with pride as I saw the officers on duty on all the corners in the city. I knew how hard it was for them, knowing they had lost their friends. On the Sat. following the attack I was at St. Patrick's for mass. The last 2 people to go up and take communion were 2 NYPD officers, again I cried. I hope all of you are getting the support that my family and I got when we needed it, from the Deparment. I know the comforting words and even the funny stories the officers tell us about my brother helps. I know that our loved ones who are gone from here, had a higher calling and are happy and at peace in Heaven. Hopefully we can all feel that same peace one day! God bless All of you! And God bless America!

God I don't know what to say. I intend to post this message for each and everyone of you heroes so Officer, Detective, Agent, Whatever,... I thank you. You swore to serve and to protect. Well your days of protecting us are over. But you will forever be in service. Your eternal service... the inspiration you and your fellow bothers and sisters have re-enforced in my heart, will live so long as I do. Though I will not always carry your name in the front of my mind, not in my duties as a soldier or as the police officer I plan to become when I get home, I will still always carry with me the knowledge of your sacrifice... of your heroism, of your selflessness... I will carry a samll piece of you everywhere I go. Be it with an M-16 in my hands in a strange land, or a badge on my chest in my own back yard... long after the flags come down and the nation carries on... until the day I die... you will continue to serve... as my inspiration. God bless you. God bless your family. God bless your agency. God bless FDNY. God bless all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, coast guardsmen, and marines. God bless New York City. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Thank you my brothers and sisters. I love you.
