I met a PAPD officer who was great friends w/ Donald. I had went to a NY Yankees fantasy camp in 2000. I wanted to try to do something for the officers that were victims on 9/11. I gave my autographed NY Yankees hat....autographs from Yogi Berra,Don Larsen,Bobby Richardson,Nettles,Dent,Kubek, Goose,ect...to Don's wife....through my new friend. I was invited to the picnic honoring Don & Mike W. It was such an honor and a privilege, I hope to meet Don's son , one day, who got the hat. God bless all of the PAPD officers, who sacrificed their lives...for others !!!

When I started working for the PA ;the bus terminal on 42nd st was something else and officer McIntyre was always so nice &always made me laugh ; I relocated to the GWB toll and then I bumped into him again and that smile I will never forget some people change but he stayed the same ; after 9/11 I looked on the wall in the police office and was in shock to know that we lost and very nice guy & that we shared the same sign he was born in DEC so was I 12/13; My wish is to meet or at lest see a picture of the child he never met .GOD BLESS TO HIS FAMILY

Bless all those whose sacrifice, love and courage have given so much to this world. Protect those Heroes in harm’s way, strengthen those whose heroic contribution perseveres day in and day out, and heal those whose heroism has cost them in mind and body. Grant by your grace, that we may each find ever deeper heroic virtues in ourselves so that we may serve others every day, in every way.
Amen

Don,
you will always be remembered! Your killer has been brought to justice..

Lord, he was yours to give,
and yours to call home.
Please stand by his brothers,
so they're not all alone.
Dry the tears of his family,
so they clearly can see,
that he gave us his all,
so all could have peace.

Blessed are they,
the children of God,
with heavy hearts,
and honor they trod,
to pay their respects,
to give their salute,
and to ask for your mercy
on HEROES IN BLUE.
Amen.

Rest easy officer; your work here is done.

Dear Don:
Though we have never met, I believe that we share a common bond...to protect and serve our countrymen, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And defend them you did, in the most noble and commendable way possible. To save even one life, (I know, I have), is a feeling that can't be put into words. But, to save 25,000, well, there wll never be a satisfactory desription of the emotions felt.
Thank God you and all the rest were there that horrible day. As police officers, we are all familiar with sacrifice at one point or another. But hopefully never again, will we have to endure sacrifice of the magnitude that you so willingly made.
To honor you and all who made the supreme sacrifice, is not only fitting and proper, but your sacrifice demands it. And justly so. I am certain that somewhere, there is a family that is still hurting from losing you, and a family that still knows the loneliness of not having you there for them. So, this reflection is not only to honor you, for which you deserve, but also to your family, who deserve it as well.
The attack was horrific, and cowardly, and a disgrace. But to forget what you did that day, along with all our other fallen brothers, would be even more dispicable. I will not allow it, not for a moment. Every chance I get, in any way that I can, I make mention of the sacrifice you gave, to anyone I can. We, as Americans, can never give back enough, to you, or, to your family.
America was built on sacrifice, and yours was no different. Obtaining freedom took sacrifice, lots of it. But maintaining it, takes even more. Much more, and from many more people.
As you rest in Heaven, know that you are are now a legend, and legends don't die...they grow bigger and are appreciated more with each passing day. Godspeed, and until we meet each other in a place our Father has set aside for all of you who wear a badge, thank you, God Bless your family, and God Bless America. Amen

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!

To the many officers of the New York Port Authority Police Department I extend my sincere condolences. I talked with many of you on October 10, 2001 at Donald's Service. I traveled many miles with a fellow officer to pay our respects to Donald. I only wish I could have stayed for all the other PAPD Officer services. Donald, your family is in great hands amongst the many friends, brothers, and sister officers you left behind. God bless what you did for your country on 9-11-2001. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN !!!!
