  2. I was at the tunnel to towers 5k in cape girardeau mo, and was handed Foti’s name, and I looked him up and realized that our birthdays were close together ( mines the 21st) and felt a sense of peace. I was nowhere near all the caos of that day but it impacted my life in a way that I can’t explain. I pray for peace of mind for all the families of these brave men and women. Please know that even though I never met Mr. Foti I feel a connection that brings peace. What I have read he was a great man. Thank you for the bravery your bestowed!

  3. What a blessing it was to choose Robert’s ID tag for the NFFF Stair Climb at Lambeau Field September 22, 2018. I don’t know Robert. I didnt need to know know Robert. All I know is he was one of us. He made the ultimate sacrifice and I was honored to carry his likeness as I made every step to ring the honor bell at the 78th floor. I was in pain but we went on to make the entire climb of 110 floors. We will do it again and again for all who have fallen. I now drive truck for a living. My wife and I drive a truck dedicated to all fallen firefighters; Memorial Run. We will carry Robert’s ID tag with us everywhere we go. Blessed are those who served and those of us served by them.

  6. I had the honor of taking the 911 Tower Challenge at the Universtiy of Arizona Stadium on September 11, 2019., Myself and 1,600 people walked 2,071 stairs to honor first responders who fell that day. I was humbled to be able to wear his picture on my lanyard and later find his picture in the stands. His sacrifice will never be forgotten. I hope his 3 chilldren and wife have found some peace amid all the grief and tragedy. Thank you Robert for your service and ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy.
