  8. I met Mike before he became a firefighter. He was fresh out of college and did inside sales at an engineering company we worked for. He had no reason to be nice to me but he and I become friends.

    He would buy The Chief all the time to see if he passed the civil service exam to become a firefighter. Its all he ever talked about. A few years later his picture was in the NYPost for rescuing a senior citizen from a burning buidling. I was so proud of him. He was truly a special person. I miss him.

    – Ken
