I never had the honor of meeting Mr. Cleere, but I recently ordered a Mercy Band and the one I was sent was for "Mr. Jim Cleere-WTC". I immediately looked for Mr. Cleere's biography on the Internet and discovered he was the same age my husband is - that gave me goose bumps, because the name for my bracelet was picked randomly and I believe there is a heavenly reason Mr. Cleere was chosen for mine. That could have been my husband that fateful day. I can relate to his family so much more by knowing that. When I found his picture - I broke into tears. He has a wonderful face and looks loving and jolly. I will take that face with me everywhere; I will wear my bracelet inscribed with his name everywhere and for as long as I live. I didn't know I could feel any worse than I already did for all those who perished on 9/11; but it all seems so much more personal to me now to actually be carrying this gentleman's name and face in my heart forever as well as on my wrist. Everyone who sees my bracelet will know of Mr. Cleere; he will never be forgotten. I grieve with his family, friends and loved ones and all of my prayers go to them. God Bless You.
