We remember. Always.
Thank you John Tipping III for your sacrifice and so many of your brother firefighters, police officers and brave Americans who lost their lives. John was my neighbor Sophmore year at Oneonta and a great guy. He and his roommate used to live in our suite in MacDuff Hall, because they had no furniture and we kept our place stocked with food.
And thank you to my good friend Bill Foronjy, Jr. whose birthday was today and was a first responder. Bill passed away on December 17, 2007 from a serious lung condition (Sarcoidosis) and left behind a wonderful wife. I think of Bill constantly and will always miss him.
