Today we are grateful.
Grateful for ALL the Responders who gave it their ALL during the devastation of 9/11.
While many lives were tragically lost, there were many who came out to help.
We are grateful for all who came out yesterday to pay their final respects to Rochester, NY Police Officer Daryl Pierson. Officer Pierson was killed in the line of duty last week. Our first Police Officer killed in 50 years. 6,100 people attended his service yesterday. A testament to what a fine young man he was.
He was our "home town" guy. We are grateful that you protected our city. Our hearts are heavy with this great loss.
"8843? 8843? 8843 Daryl Pierson. 8843, Officer Daryl Pierson, end of watch. September 3rd at 22-45 hours."
We are grateful to have had our furend Herbie in our lives. Herbie was a handsome little man who went to the Bridge on September 4th at the age of 16. We met Herbie years ago on Dailydoxie.com and quickly became fast friends with him and his wonderful Mom. He lived on a cattle ranch in Texas and had a totally pawsome life!
Our family will always remember just how special he was to us! Auf wiedersehn Herbie. You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
And today, we are especially grateful for all the Doctor's, Nurses & everyone involved in helping our Daddy get healthy.
We are grateful that late last night, Mommy brought Daddy home.
He's got a long road ahead of him still, but he's in great paws here!
In the end, through ALL the darkness, we focus our energy to see the light. For that we are truly grateful.....
