I remember being at work in Lake Sherwood and watching the TV broadcast with Linda my dispatcher ,who is now deceased, and Mary the Office Manager who’s husband was a fireman and she was crying when she saw the destroyed Fire Trucks. I later  found out one of the guys I was stationed with in HC-2 in the Navy , Jim Cherry, lost a brother, Vernon Cherry when his entire company of NYFD Ladder Company 118 was killed and their truck destroyed in the collapse of the WTC.
Firefighter Vernon Cherry 10-10-51,to 09-11-01,
Please never forget the sacrifices these men made for their country we will never give in to terrorism of any kind.
Donna and I are doing fine she s feeling better, no more dizziness. Sam went to the doctors for his 3 month physical that turned into a 6 month physical because we were gone all summer, all turned fine and I am good for another 3 months or 3000 miles. I can only hope I can talk Donna into another trip this winter so we don’t have to worry about any snow or another Mo winter. Hope all is well with all our friends out there. Be safe. Sam & Donna….



  1. I hope you can make another trip in a few months - that's the best part of retirement, being able to pick up and go when you feel like it.

  2. Go Donna Go!!! I am sure you would enjoy avoiding the snow!!! Glad you both are feeling better. And we too will never forget where we were when we heard the news. It was definitely a heart stopper. Love you both.

  3. A few weeks ago we went to the wedding of my great-nephew. I wrote a blog about it. I just found out yesterday that the brides uncle was the Captain of Flight 93. We've visited that site in PA, now has even more meaning.

  4. Kelly and Cindy were in NYC for the 9/11 tribute last week. He visited lots of NYFD while they were there too. Kel and Cin were married on 9/11/07 and had a prayer for the lost souls included in their ceremony...
