I still remember the last time I spoke to you. We were at a detail, and were talking about the great shape you had gotten into. You seemed so happy to be in ESU- I will always remember the big smile on your face and how enthusiastic you were. That was the last time I ever saw you. Rest in Peace, Dennis. You will never be forgotten.

To Captain Morales' wife and son; Captain Morales was a true hero, along with all the other law enforcement officers and firefighters who lost their individual lives attempting to save the lives of other individuals. I'm both proud of Captain Morales and sad for his early departure from his own family. May God bless his family here on earth.
