Three more down

YEAREND PICTURES 2001.My ex-brother-in-law, Richard McGuire, was a retired fire fighter when on 9/11/2001 he saw that his department friends had a big job to do. Transportation to Manhattan was shut down so he got on his bicycle and rode the thirty miles from Rockville Centre, on the island, to ground zero. That’s how those guys are, tightly knit, watching each others’ backs.

Dick died in December of 2012 of cancer at age 65. 850 first responders have died of cancer since that event. That was, I swear, no ordinary fire.
