  5. My 12 year old daughter and I attended the 9/11 stair climb in Thomasville, Georgia today (9-11-19). I picked Lt. Stephen Harrell’s lanyard and ID. It was interesting to find out about his musical ability and love for music! Sending a sincere thank you to his family for supporting his career as a fire fighter. He died a hero and we will never forget his or any of the other sacrifices made that day. God bless your family and peace be with you.
