Went to the Memphis Memorial Service for Fallen Firefighters, yesterday, 10/12/05. My sister’s husband, David O’Conner, died April 20, 2005. My husband is a 3rd generation firefighter and to see Martiniano (father) Lermas and Javier (son) on the Wall was very emotional. Our hearts are with the Lerma families. God bless!– Theresa Locastro
Today is the anniversary of my brother’s death. I still can’t believe he’s gone. It’s been 7 years and I feel it just like it was yesterday. Today is really pretty in Memphis just like it was 7 years ago. Gone but Never Forgotten.– Sandra Lerma Price
