FDNY Lt.'s Michael Quilty and Glenn Perry where more than just coworkers! They worked together in the Bronx for almost 2 decades fighting fires and telling firehouse jokes together! They even got their families together away from work for some good hospitality! So naturally they studied for the Lt test and got promoted together and both ended up in Midtown area just a month before 9/11. On that awful morning both amazing husbands, fathers, and firefighters lead their crews to the WTC to help with rescues. They ended up giving their lives and leaving behind the most precious kissin have ever met! As God will have it Lt Quilty's daughter, an amazing nurse at NYU and Lt Perry's son, who now is a FDNY FF assigned to the same station that his dad was, are dating! Then some 2,500 miles away and these guys have made a profound impact on my life! I think about their leagacy, the type of guys they were, on a daily basis. On Monday March 16 I will be participating in my 7th memorial stair climb in 5 years for these fallen heroes at the 1st ever firefighter stair climb at the new WTC 4. It's going to be a very powerful day emotionally carrying my gear and some of the equipment they carried on 9/11.The money raised by this stair climb is going to two great charities, please let's make a difference together.
