Manny,

Remember me Manny? I met you in the stairs crazy day back in September on my way down when it seemed that the world was collapsing all around us. Its almost been a year already. We were probably the only ones that were still in high spirits that day. Even in the face of death and danger you had a smile on your face and kept on trooping to do your job. None of us had any idea what fate had in store for us that day. Wierd how God plans these things out, huh?
After I came out, I was waiting for you to call, so I could get the beers that you promised to buy after we got out.
I remembered you telling me your firehouse was on 14th, so I stopped by, then I found out you didn't make it out.
I went to your funeral services, I think I was the only Marine there, saw your family, friends fellow firemen. It was hard to hold back the tears man.
You did your duty, you did your uniform proud that day. We only knew each other for a few minutes, but those few minutes will have a lasting impact in my life.
I guess God had different plans for us, but I'll see you again in time.
I'll come by and see you in Oct.
Rest in peace

Shin
