Dear Peter and Family,
What do you say to someone you never met, but know they were wonderful and their memory deserves to be cherished? I am sorry? Thank you? God Bless you?
All these things and more need to be said for you, Peter and everyone who perished on September 11.
On this Christmas Eve, my thoughts are with Angels and I know you and your fellow firefighters who did not return to your loved ones are now Angels, living with God in Heaven.
I believe that is why the sky was so brillant, clear, and blue on that fateful day...It was so crystal clear to make your journey to Heaven swift and unobstructed.
I read the wonderful tribute and story that was printed in the Daily News, today, about you, by your loving wife and the reporters who kept you under their watchful eye. I smiled as I read the story about the Christmas Party on Middagh Street, home of the heroes of Engine 205/Ladder 118! That station is one of the fire stations I have "adopted" and write and send poems and my thoughts to, as often as I can.
Bittersweet was the term used for your visit, Mrs. Grice-Vega. My heart breaks for your pain and sorrow. I wish I could take the feelings of loss away from your heart.
I hope the messages of peace and love that have flooded this site brings you comfort and I pray the sun one again will shine through the dark clouds overhead.
God Bless you Peter, Regan, and baby daughter Ruby.
My grandparents and aunt lived in NYC and as I child I spent every summer in the Bronx. My grandfather, as a matter of fact, worked for the Daily News forever!
I had not returned to NYC in many years, but on the weekend of November 10, my daughter and I made the pilgrimage to pay our respects and homage to those who perished at the World Trade Center. Sadness still overwhelms me and my thoughts and prayers will continue for many more holiday seasons to come.
May Peace be yours for the New Year, Mrs. Grice-Vega, Ruby, and loved ones.
