Kim’s sister lives in Poughkeepsie, New York and we had made flight reservations for spending the Christmas Holidays there that year. When 9-11 happened we decided to leave the decision up to our two children Jennifer 15 and James 13 if they still wanted to go.

They said yes. We went down to ground zero and witnessed the devastation first hand. Both Jennifer and James wrote on the temporary wall expressing their condolences. It was a very heart wrenching experience and to remind us for the rest of our lives Kim has the Towers tattooed and I have and Eagle with the skyline in the background tattooed also. We Will Never Forget.
