I worked with Jimmy at the 6th precinct too. Funny guy who really enjoyed life. I'll never forget the day he pulled up in his brand new, bright yellow Mustang. I told him it looked like the fastest taxi cab in NYC. The guy always had a smile on his face.

Thinking of you and your family today on this sixth anniverary date. Your memory is honored and revered and our country is indebted to all of our 9/11 heroes, especially to the first responders.

Tyler, Ann I lost my son in 2005 when he was killed in the line of duty. Thousands of miles separate us, but I want you to kow that today you and your grandparents are in my heart's embrace. Like you, I have sad days when I miss our heroes and wonder why all this happened to us. Sometimes I thnk I will always wonder why. There is one thing I am certain about. Your daddy and my son would want us to live full lives, to have those moments of joy...there is nothing we could do to make them happier or prouder than to live our life with passion and purpose. Your daddy is watching over you every day...our loved ones are part of us, they are in our heart and soul. I am sending you a big hug from California.

P.S. I think it is awesome you got to see Justin Bieber

Jim I just read tyler anns letter to you, don't worry we're taking good care of her. She misses you every day, and she always wants us to tell her funny storys about you , she whats to know ever thing about you. She wishes you never became a police officer, because you would still be here if you did something else, i try to tell her it was your calling-- to help people. It's hard for a cilivian to no why we love the job never mind a small child. Don't worry we'll never let her hurt herself we watch her very closely since you passed. The holidays were tough on her this year. But we made sure she got a lot of gifts I spoil her just like you did/
