Tribute to 9/11 victim - NYPD Police Officer Ramon Suarez

I'm very proud to dedicate this post to one of the heroes of 9/11 and a good family man, Ramon Suarez. May his soul rest in peace, and may God Bless his family.

Officer Suarez served the people of NYC at the Delancy Street Subway station, in Transit District 4. He and fellow Officer Mark Ellis, ran from their station to assist in the rescue at the WTC. He was last seen smiling while trying to calm down a woman he had just carried to safety, reassuring her and others that "it was going to be alright", then headed back into the building.

Officer Suarez leaves behind a grieving family, including his wife, two daughters, one son and two grandchildren.

Officer Suarez' body was found at Ground Zero on Wednesday, December 19, more than 3 months after the collapse of the WTC. A mass and funeral were held on on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2001, with "thousands" of people in attendance.

We join this family, along with all others who are mourning the loss of loved ones, for those who were injured, and for all who so bravely, thought not of themselves, but of their fellow man. You truly are our heroes.
