Steven, today is 9/11/21 20 years have passed since the attack that eventually claimed you. . And in January it will be five years since you left us. I think of you often. I remember how much life you had and how many plans you had. Sad that your days were cut short. You accomplished so much in your 53 years. How is the duty in heaven?
Your Friend,

Chief
Thanks for your service to your great city and state. Your career track is similar to mine. Obviously you were one of the best to have commanded the elite ESU unit. Your zest for education and excellence is obvious. Thanks again for your sacrifice and your service to this great nation as well.

Deputy Chief Bonano,
On today, the 5th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City and our Country as well-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but when you served with the USN as well. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Chief, I will never forget you! You are the reason my career did a reality check. Without your guidance when you were the CO of the 23 Pct not sure where I was going. You were the ultimate BOSS of ALL BOSSES! God Bless You Steve!
