Tomorrow i will be climbing in honor of Firefighter Ruben Correa. He gave his life along with 342 other brothers trying to save so many innocent lives taken on September 11th. I am truly humbled to be able to take his memory to the top floor and will never forget the sacrifice he and so many others made on that day. NEVER FORGET

I have climbed in honor of Ruben for the past two years in Denver and Kansas City. I plan on climbing every year in honor of you brother.

I have your name on a red medalion that hangs on my mirror in my truck. Every day I think of the hero's at 9 11. I received this tag with Rueben's name on it and have prayed for him and his family. Some day I would like to visit New York. I have an Aunt and cousins in Long Island.

Thank you Rueben for your life and service to all the people that depended on you.

God Bless you and your family and God Bless America.

My sister got me a baseball hat that has RDC on it. I'm sorry for your loss.

Dave, I was only seven years old when the trade centers were attacked. Since I was so young at the time, I never really got to know you. That fact has bothered me since that day. I hear all the great things the rest of the family says about you and wish I had a memory to share. I do know, however, that you are a true hero. Everyone loves you and misses you. You will remain in our hearts until we meet again. Rest In Peace.

My dearest Ruben (Dave)
Not only were you my uncle and godfather you are also my hero and you will never know how proud you made us all and how much we miss you. You were taken from us to soon and its sad to think of all the things you've missed but we find small comfort in knowing that we will see you again someday in a better place so until then we will carry you with us always in our hearts. We love you dave till we meet again xoxoxo

UNCLE DAVE...IT'S BEEN 7 YEARS SINCE YOU WERE TAKEN AWAY FROM US AND EVERY YEAR IT GETS HARDER AND HARDER FOR ME TO DEAL WITH YOU NOT BEING HERE. I KNOW YOU IN A BETTER PLACE NOW BUT WHY DID OUR TIME TOGETHER HAVE TO BE CUT SHORT BECAUSE OF SOME COWARD. THERE IS NOT A DAY THAT GOES BY THAT I DON'T THINK ABOUT YOU AND REMEMBER ALL THE LAUGHS AND GOOD TIMES WE HAD TOGETHER. I NEVER GOT TO TELL YOU..BUT YOU MEAN A WHOLE LOT TO ME AND I ADMIRE YOU FOR BEING BRAVE. I LOVE AND MISS YOU UNCLE DAVE UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN....

Hi, My name is Sandie Carney and I live in Cleveland, Ohio. I bought 2 memorial bracelets after 9/11 and one of them had the name of Ruben D. Correa Engine 74 on it. I have worn it every day since. I really know very little about Mr. Correa except that he was married and had I think 3 daughters. (information I got from different memorial websites) I just wanted his family to know that I say a prayer for them every morning when I wake up and I think of them every time I look at my wrist. Since the bracelet is made of stainless steel needless to say it tends to set off metal detectors at all public building and airports I go through but I just show them the bracelet and for that moment your husband and father's name is on someone's mind and lips. And with that he can never be forgotten. I wish I knew more about him but it's hard to find anything here in Cleveland. I just wanted you to know that you are prayed for daily and I know God is holding you all a little tighter and closer until you can all be together again. And through the love of Jesus Christ and the promise of eternal lifer through him you will be a family together in Heaven forever.
Bless you all.
Sandie Carney

On a trip to new york to visit our son we came across engine #74. We took pictures to show all our friends in iowa that people were really hurt from the world trade centers Attack. I saw Rubens Picture in front of the firehouse and relized just what the firefighters of new york had really sacrificed.
You should be proud of the jobs you are doing.
To the famillies of all our fallen friends Hang In there.I wish i could say something magical for it all to go away. The people here in Iowa thank you for all you have done.Take care and hang on to the memories.
