Good Read..Thanks for the post. As a transplanted Long Islander,it's always good to hear a story from my old stomping grounds, only this kind never fails to bring a tear to my eyes. After 9/11, I called my old neighbors to "check in" and was told their oldest daughter's fiancee, a NYC firefighter, had perished in the collapse. I don't know anyone who was not affected by that terrible day. Rest in Peace Lt. Murphy, and thanks.
