  6. I am honored to climb the Lambeau Field Stair Climb in memory of Michael. I just want to say I’m so sorry for your family’s loss and the sacrifice made for the people on 9/11. Michael is a true hero and I’m sure you’re proud of him. My husband is also a firefighter and he climbed with me. The man he climbed for had the same last name. Not sure if the two are related. God bless your family.

I was told by my family and a few friends who I trust 100% that my family traced back in our family history and Michael was my second consent and if there is anything that I can do for his wife and his children please don’t wait until it’s too late with money problems I’m very well off and on this day for the last 19 years has aged my body and mind faster than the first 19 years God bless and I’m always here.
