Ray and I were classmates at St. Teresa's in Woodside. We played hockey together on 48 Ave between 44 and 45 st. The last time I saw Ray he was changing tires at a Sears Store in Hicksville. When 911 happen I volunteered at the Forensic Recovery Site on SI. Being a retired detective it was the thing to do. I had two people on my mind while working there, Ray Downey and Charlie Mills my old Chief of Detectives. I know Ray's DNA was found but Charlie was never found. God bless them both.

To the Downey Family, My thoughts are with you during this week of the 11th anniversary of your loss. My heartfelt thanks for sharing your memories and photos, especially to Mrs. Downey for the spoken memories I've listened to several times online. I also remember that September 19 would be Chief Downey's 75th birthday.

Though I did not Mr.Downey personaly, I do know that he will lays be missed and loved. I will pray for him every day and do an extra prayer too. Thuogh I didn't lose anyone from 9/11 I still remember it and am thankful and wish I could shake his hands and say thank you for risking your life to save others. I have a sister who wants to join the fire department and I don't know what I would do if I lost her but my prayers and deepest sorrow goes out to the family.
