We want to extend our thanks to Mr. Lew Simon for all of the work that he has been doing to help with the loss of our truck and equipment due to the September 11th tragedy. Unfortunately, the initial conversation was misunderstood and the only reimbursement that we wanted was from government public aid or charitable organizations, not from the neighborhood or neighbors. All of the money donations that have been given to the family have been returned and so will any in the future. The September 11th tragedy has put a strain on my family, but has not left us in disarray. We ask all of the good-hearted people that want to donate money to please direct it to our local FDNY and NYPD. Once again thanks Lew for all the work you do for us and for this community.
