  8. Every year on this day I think of Terrence. I never met this man but I have a bracelet with his name and Fire House name on it. My father was a firefighter as well as my uncles. So I am very aware of how firefighters are family. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. He was a very very special man. He will never be forgotten. He will be in my heart. I wonder in heaven is there a special place for firefighters? If so, Terrence is there with my dad and uncle. God Bless his family. Terrie
