I still can’t bring myself to delete your cellphone number from my phone. Still remember the time we sang along to Springsteen’s “Jungleland” while sitting in the unmarked on the SNEU set. Always will remember you Big Country !

Ned you are a true hero. I pray that you are at peace & your family is well. It seems like only yesterday we went through the Police Academy in company 91-26. I was fortunate to run into you many times while working. Still with the same upbeat attitude. You have left a legacy for your family and our department. I was honored to have know you. I think about you often & miss you bud!

Parabéns a todos estes valorosos homens policiais que deram suas vidas para salvar centenas de outras vidas de civis quando deste sangrento e covarde ataque do 11 de setembro como ficou conhecido no mundo todo. Que Deus ilumine suas almas e lhes conceda paz e tambem para as familias que perderam seus entes queridos. Tambem sou policial e me orgulho de minha profissão. Abraços a todos os colegas de todas as nações. Aqueles que lutam para manter a ordem e a paz em todas as comunidades de todas nações. Parabens a todos.

Sgt Thompson
Thank you for your heroic efforts on that day of disaster. My brother also passed away from the effects of that day back in Feb 2007. Not a day goes by without me thinking of Him. I know the sense of loss your family is going thru, it never goes away it just eases thru time. May you rest in peace, watch over us and guide us. We have one truly great force above us.
