I travelled to ground zero from Ireland for the second anniversary with my family.Like your family we were also affected greatly by that tradgic day. My aunt and baby cousin whom ive spent the best times of my life with and wonderful summers with were on the second plane that hit the towers.I never knew of you until this anniversary. I was standing in front of your family and friends with my own family as we waited to walk down to ground zero.I remember turning around and seeing your picture, one of many proud pictures held by the ones you loved. I began crying, you are so gorgeus i know why the ladies loved you. Mere words cannot express the courage and braveness you showed on that tradgic day. My utmost respect goes out to you and all the heros who sacraficed their lives to save and help others on that day. For your family, two years on and it still feels like yesterday, why our loved ones were taken only God has the answers. Manuel and both Ruth and little Juliana, my family, live on today in the memories and stories we share about these heros. I do believe that our loved ones have gone from this earth to a better place but they have not gone from our hearts.I hope the DelValle family and friends are still finding the strength to help them through their loss. You have a wonderful son, brother, grandson, cousin ,nephew, friend....
Manuel, you are an angel and your families guardian angel, you are an inspiration to all! Rest In Peace.
