Hi Jim,
It is great to hear from you. We are happy to hear that you have settled down in you new house.
We will never forget what you did for us by comong to the WTC, giving me you jacket which I often wear with pride and you coming to Tommy's firehouse and having lunch there with Tommy's brothers at the house and Tommy's family. You asked me to call you when we had the funeral services for Tommy. They found him 7 months later, but they didn't realese him until all of the DNA was complete and we planned the funeral in August. You came and we were delighted.
Even though we didn't know at the time of your race that you were wearing a bracelet with Tommy's name, we were rooting for you, not only because you were an American, but we were aware of your sorrow after losing your grandfather 2 or 3 weeks before the race and you almost droped out because your Grandfather (who was also an Olympic medal winner and your father also competed in the Olympics) was a tremendous inspiration for you. We were glad that you finally resolved to race and you won!
We didn't know about you wearing the bracelet until I beleave the Governor Pataki, or someone in his office told told us.
Please keep in touce with us I would love to talk more to you.
My email address is [email protected] and I am also on Facebook and you can be my friend.
God bless you always!
Carlo A, Casoria
