  15. I extend my most heartfelt condolences to the Family of my Beloved Friend and Talented Buddy in NOT only Firefighting but in the Performing Arts … on the 16th Anniversary of the tragic but also HEROIC passing of Dear ERIC T. ALLEN! I share the grief of Eric’s Wife and Daughters, unfortunately whom I never met, but knowing Eric I am comforted that they are the most “splendid” of people, because “he” only knew and loved “splendid” folk! Many years ago I had the privilege of directing ERIC in a show in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and He and I also attended an acting class together in Manhattan ; BOTH experiences were of the “BEST FRIENDSHIP” caliber attainable in life! “YOU … ERIC”!!! … are sorely missed, always loved, and never, EVER, FORGOTTEN! “REST IN PEACE…LIFELONG BUDDY”!
    Always,
    Aleksander F. Wierzbicki ( Aleks )

  17. I was just in the bedroom changing into my pajamas, and glanced as I often do at my wife’s jewelry tree on her dresser. There, among probably a hundred necklaces, is one that doesn’t really belong with the rest. It does not shine, nor is it encrusted with gemstones yet my wife and I see it first, before any of the others, every time we walk in the room. It’s an elegantly understated necklace like I wore during my military service. It has one dog tag on it. Stamped on the dog tag is the following: ERIC ALLEN
    FIREFIGHTER
    FDNY
    9.11.01
    To the family of Mr Allen I say this, thank you for the sacrifice you made and continue to make each and every day. My wife and hold you all up in prayer to our Heavenly Father. And to Eric I say, I can’t wait to meet you and shake your hand.
