Dear Julie, I just read your response about Pete. I was with Pete just before we both dashed toward the WTC. We were both getting our gear on, Pete had his trademark unlit cigar in his mouth. We both left the quarters of Engine and Ladder 10, directly across the street from the south tower. As we raced out, I turned for a second to get a halligan tool, Pete kept on going and within seconds the south tower collapsed, Pete was instantly killed. in the showering debris of this unexpected collapse. That day, Pete was on medical leave from a previous fire in the Bronx, our medical office is not too far away for response. Pete shot over into Manhattan and while donning PPE he left a note in the firehouse to his family in one of the lockers that was found a day or so after 9/11. Before 9/11 I drove Pete and his dynamic crew Ladder 42 on occasion as they were staioned in my firehouse as their joint was undergoing repairs. Pete has a very close family and I am sure they will truly honor your thoughts and dedication to the memory of Pete. I will recall our light hearted chats at the kitchen table and fireground, always with his signature cigar, I pray he is comfortable upstairs and has a long beautiful unlit cigar he cherished. Rest in peace Pete.
