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 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.
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)
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.
Dad..we all miss you so much. It's so hard with out you. I always took for granted that you would be here for me whenever I needed you and now that your not I regret not making the most of our time together when we had it. I love and so does everyone else. I know your always with us and that makes me feel a little better. Rest in peace
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're not forgotten.
Dave... ...miss ya... come on home
Ruben, I hope you are seeing how loved you were when you were here, and I hope what my friends are doing can give some comfort to your family. Thank you for being you - I just wish I had gotten to know of you under better circumstances.
