For Captain Patrick Waters

I am a Fire Captain with the Marin County Fire Department in Calif.  After 9-11 a friend at the Santa Rosa Fire Dept commissioned and painted a rendition of a firefighter emerging from the rubble of WTC.  He did 343 paintings, one for each Firefighter who had lost their lives.  I bought (all proceeds to the FDNY Widows and Orphans) one dedicated to Captain Patrick Waters.  In May of 2002 I was able to visit the house (Squad 288 - HazMat 1) that Capt Waters worked out of.  That house in Queens lost the most, 19, Firefighters out of all the FDNY houses.  I met some great guys and made some lifelong friends there.
